Health Overhaul Is Dealt Setback
Wall Street Journal
August 13, 2011
A U.S. appeals court in Atlanta handed the Obama administration its biggest defeat to date in the battle over the health-care overhaul passed last year, ruling the law's mandate on Americans to carry health insurance was unconstitutional.

"Individuals who choose to go without health insurance are making an economic decision that affects all of us—when people without insurance obtain health care they cannot pay for, those with insurance and taxpayers are often left to pick up the tab," Ms. Cutter said.
The individual insurance mandate is set to go into effect in 2014. It requires most Americans to carry insurance—through the workplace, a government program such as Medicare, or individual purchase—or pay a penalty that eventually could go as high as several thousand dollars per year. The act exempts some people for religious or income reasons.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette called the ruling "a huge victory in the fight to protect the freedom of American citizens from the long arm of the federal government."
The decision affirmed part of a January ruling by U.S. District Judge Roger...
