Rep. Mike Coffman on the Obamacare Court Ruling

Congressman Mike Coffman (R-CD6) issued the following statement Monday, after U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson announced his ruling on a case challenging the constitutionality of the “Individual Mandate” in the new health care law filed by the State of Virginia:

“This decision preserves the constitutional provision of federalism and it represents a clear victory for individual liberty over the ever expanding powers of the federal government. I have always maintained that the individual mandate in Obamacare is unconstitutional and Judge Hudson’s decision today upheld that while Congress is granted the authority to regulate commerce, there is no mention in our Constitution of the right of the government to compel citizens to buy a good or a service. Although this issue will be ultimately decided in the Supreme Court, today’s ruling is an important victory for those who believe in the Constitution.”
