ObamaCare To Be Settled By Activist Judges

Washington – House Republicans passed a repeal of the National Healthcare Reform Act of 2010 – ObamaCare – but the battle isn't going to be settled there.

Nose counters say there are not enough votes to override a Presidential veto – when and if the law gains passage by both houses.

More than half the states have filed suit in federal courts challenging the law as unconstitutional. Activist judges will obviously settle the question, probably in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Congressman Bill Flores, R-17th Dist., trumpeted the House vote, calling the unpopular Democratic health care legislation a “job-killing” measure and applauding the move. He is fresh from a landslide defeat of 10-term Democratic Congressman Chet Edwards, who also voted against the ObamaCare legislation for the same reasons.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has vowed the Republican repeal measure will not see the light of day in the upper chamber, but Republican Senators are just as adamant they will “defund” the key provisions of the law.

Meanwhile, the lawsuits soak in the Courts' clerical offices, going through the majestic and stately process of pleadings, pre-trial conferences, discovery and the like.

Stay tuned. It ain't over 'til it's over.
