A Virginia federal judge on Monday ruled that the individual mandate – a major precept of the Obama administration’s healthcare legislation – exceeds the constitutional boundaries of congressional power.

“On careful review, this Court must conclude that Section 1501 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – specifically the Minimum Essential Coverage Provision – exceeds the constitutional boundaries of congressional power,” wrote U.S. District Court Judge Henry E. Hudson.
