You say potato, he says the health care bill is unconstitutional

So, by now, you’ve probably heard all about courts throughout the United States deeming the health care bill unconstitutional. I’m also sure you’ve probably grown sick from hearing about it all the time. (And worse yet, you aren’t sure if that sickness will be covered under your grandfathered plan.)

Last month, however, something actually occurred that is worth hearing about – in regards to the constitutionality of the health care bill, at least. And it will thankfully lead to an end of the “he-said, she-said” state-level court stuff and take it right to the top, the U.S. Supreme Court (from which we will only hear 9 people bicker).

So why is it sure to end up in the Supreme Court? Up until now, all the state-level courts had pretty much ruled the same thing – it is unconstitutional to require U.S. citizens to purchase health insurance. But a court in Cincinnati decided states (Virginia specifically) don’t have the right to challenge the law and that the law can’t be changed until it actually goes into effect. And this came right off the heels of an Atlanta court’s decision saying the complete opposite.

And when state-level courts disagree, there’s only one place to go. (And, I’m sorry to say, it’s not Disney Land.)

So the health care constitutionality issue is now sure to end up in the Supreme Court. And with that, the never-ending babble of the health care battle gets closer to reaching its end.
