Lawsuit on Obama health plan likely going to trial


It's more interesting than this. Apparently, Obamacare lacks a severability clause (which allows sections of a bill not stricken down by the courts to survive intact), resulting from the fact that the House passed the Senate version, which lacked one. In essence, this makes the argument simple: if ANY part of Obamacare is unconstitutional, the whole bill falls. And the individual mandate will, I suspect, be overruled - by SCOTUS, if not earlier.
