Senate Minority Leader Kopp on the Obama-care ruling

Colorado Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp issued the following statement Monday, in regards to the ruling of District Judge Henry E. Hudson - the requirement for people to purchase health care exceeds the power of Congress under the Constitution's Commerce.

"In March of this year Republicans in the Senate & House held a press conference calling into question the legality of the mandatory purchase of health insurance written in the federal health care law. [Yesterday's] ruling confirms our belief that the federal government was overreaching and acting outside of its powers defined in the Constitution. While this is just one victory in what will ultimately be a long fought battle, I believe we cannot overlook its significance."
