Not a good day in Obamaville. A HUGE number of Americans want Obama's "let grandma die" healthcare plan repealed. In fact, nearly twice as many people want it repealed than do not. Fancy rhetoric from the president is not having an effect.
From Weasel Zippers:
Poll: Support Repealing ObamaCare Rises to 60%…
"Worst. Bill. Evah!
(Rasmussen)- 'Time doesn’t seem to be winning the new national health care law any more friends. Most voters have favored repeal of the law every week since it was passed and support for repeal has now inched up to its highest level since mid-September. Many Americans remain concerned that the law will force them to change their health insurance coverage.'"
This is bad news for the Obama regime, but the ruling by the federal judge in Virginia stating that the individual mandate for healthcare is unconstitutional is a devastating blow for libs.

Breaking: Federal Judge Rules ObamaCare Individual Mandate is Unconstitutional…
RICHMOND – 'A federal judge in Virginia ruled Monday that a key provision of the nation’s sweeping health-care overhaul is unconstitutional, the most significant legal setback so far for President Obama’s signature domestic initiative.
U.S. District Court Judge Henry E. Hudson found that Congress could not order individuals to buy health insurance.
In a 42-page opinion, Hudson said the provision of the law that requires most individuals to get insurance or pay a fine by 2014 is an unprecedented expansion of federal power that cannot be supported by Congress’s power to regulate interstate trade.
“Neither the Supreme Court nor any federal circuit court of appeals has extended Commerce Clause powers to compel an individual to involuntarily enter the stream of commerce by purchasing a commodity in the private market,” he wrote. “In doing so, enactment of the [individual mandate] exceeds the Commerce Clause powers vested in Congress under Article I [of the Constitution.]
Hudson is the first judge to rule that the individual mandate is unconstitutional. He said, however, that portions of the law that do not rest on the requirement that individuals obtain insurance are legal and can proceed. Hudson indicated there was no need for him to enjoin the law and halt its implementation, since the mandate does not go into effect until 2014.'"
