Health Leaders Media

A federal judge in Pensacola, FL on Monday threw out as unconstitutional the entire Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act because of the inseverable individual mandate provision that requires people to carry health insurance or else pay a penalty.

“This case is not about whether the Act is wise or unwise legislation. It is about the Constitutional role of the federal government,” Senior U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson wrote in a 78-page ruling.
