"FUCK YOU, OBAMA!!!!!" said the appeals panel

ATLANTA (AP) — A federal appeals panel struck down the centerpiece of President Barack Obama's sweeping health care overhaul Friday, moving the argument over whether Americans can be required to buy health insurance a step closer to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The divided three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals concluded Congress overstepped its authority when lawmakers passed the so-called individual mandate, the first such decision by a federal appeals court. It's a stinging blow to Obama's signature legislative achievement, as most experts agree the requirement that Americans carry health insurance — or face tax penalties — is the foundation for other parts of the law.

I see this as a ploy by Obama to eventually have the Federal government implement "state" health care for everyone... since the government has sooooo much money it could just "supply free health care for EVERYONE"... under the liberals, everything would be free for everybody! Why work and be productive when you can just sit on your ass and have the government give you everything!!!! Once again, the liberal mantra, "throw enough money at it and it will be fixed or go away"... welcome to the new United States of China....
