A federal judge in Detroit today upheld key provisions of President Barack Obama’s landmark health reform law.

In a 20-page decision, U.S. District Judge George Steeh refused to issue an injunction to halt preparations for putting federal health reforms into full effect in 2014, a law known as the Affordable Care Act passed by Congress in March. Steeh also dismissed the major points of the suit — requiring Americans to buy health insurance and penalizing those who don’t starting in 2014.

Um, actually...poor people lose. Just like they'll lose when runaway inflation causes them to start rummaging through the garbage for food. But, whatever makes you feel better.

Somewhat irrelevant since it'll be at the SCOTUS anyways...and the conservative SCOTUS will likely not uphold this fascist law.

That is not the suit that has been joined by almost 20 states.

We shall see and you can be sure, it is heading to SCOTUS.

I'd say RWers WIN in this case. 4 weeks before an election, a liberal judge (Clinton appointee) rules on the most unpopular piece of legislation to come down the track in decades and he rules against the majority of people that want obamacare repealed.

Thank You!!

If you knew how the legal system works, that doesn't stop anyone else from filing suits and possibly winning. It' a district court ruling and has no precedential value other than for the merits of that one particular case.

With such controversial and complex cases, often judges may simply rule in favor of the defendant just to pass it along to the next level until it gets to the SCOTUS. Same happened with the McDonald gun case in Chicago. The SCOTUS will never uphold the requirement to buy health insurance.

I believe they will uphold it assuming they decide to hear the case.

The poor may lose in the short run, but when the disparities grow wide enough, well history tends to repeat itself.

This is a victory? This will 100% get appealed and it will end up at the Supreme Court, along with the case that state AGs are fighting against as well . By the way, thank a liberal judge for handing us even more election victory points
