U.S. 6th Circuit rules Obamacare constitutional

The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati concluded that the Affordable Health Care Act of 2010 insurance requirement is constitutional.

"We find that the minimum coverage provision is a valid exercise of legislative power by Congress under the Commerce Clause," a 2-1 majority of the panel concluded, rejecting a challenge by the conservative Thomas More Law Center.

The law faces constitutional challenges in Virginia and Florida.
