"Major Triumph," Governor Brewer Says of Appeals Court Shoot-Down of Forced Health Insurance Purchase

Obama's health care plan received a major blow today as it's requirement to force Americans to buy insurance was rejected by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Governor Jan Brewer called today's appeals court shoot-down of Obama's mandatory health care plan a "major triumph."

Arizona was one was 26 states that sued the federal government over the highly contested, Democrat-launched plan to force nearly every American to buy health insurance. The stipulation was crucial to the plan since millions of healthy people need to be enrolled payers in order to pay the massive cost of covering the whole country.

In January, U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson from Florida struck down the "individual mandate" and other portions of the health care law, which was signed by President Obama in 2010.

Today, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on a 2-1 vote upheld Vinson's ruling on the forced-purchase rule.

"It cannot be denied that the individual mandate is an unprecedented exercise of congressional power," wrote Chief Judge Joel Dubina and Circuit Judge Frank Hull in their 304-page opinion, noting that never before have Americans been required to buy something as a "condition of lawful residence."

"Today's decision is a victory for federalism and individual liberty," Brewer said in a written statement. "This decision represents a major triumph for the people of Arizona and the other 25 states that have joined together in challenging ObamaCare."

The 11th Circuit Court allowed other parts of the law to stay.

In a separate statement, state Attorney General Tom Horne said he was confident that the lawsuit by 26 states would be prevail if and when Obama appeals today's ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.

I have to wonder who it was that told Mrs. Brewer what her opinion should be. Pullen, pearce, Kavanaugh, Klein, et al?

["Today's decision is a victory for federalism...."]

Huh?

Evidently you folks like paying premium prices for substandard insurance?  The thieves reside in the corporate insurance offices dictating which of us lives and dies.  They lie and cheat while they gamble on your lives.

Are you saying that this law would have forced insurance rates down to a reasonable cost?    What's so reasonable to have to pay anything for what's the same as street extortion?    And federally backed extortion as well.    Insurance is basically evil.   There's plenty of money in this country to give everyone free health care.   If they'll stop dropping bombs on people who do no one any harm and stop stealing money to pad their retirements.    We don't like paying for any insurance Wiseass.

What difference does it make who came up with the idea, Democrat or Republican?  This should show you that they are both the same.    Worthless thieves in the night.   Worse than horse thieves.    You know what they used to do to horse thieves don't you?

Hey Jan,I've got a news flash for ya...

The Individual Mandate was a <big>REPUBLICAN</big><big> idea. It was Obama trying to meet people in the middle, which is a concept you brain dead Republican jackasses never heard of. God, you're a stupid, stupid twat, Jan...

Not exactly what Obama's legislation was about.

Most of those clamoring for reform were doing so because they were sick unto death of the for-profit medical insurance system in this country. Obama's perverse solution was to compel participation in the system people were sick of.

Imagine that you go into a burger joint and order a burger. When it comes out, you take one bite and realize that you have been served not a burger but a crap sandwich. You spit it out, complain to the server, and after conferring with management, the server returns to your table. "Sir," the server says, "We've discussed this, and  we have an equitable solution. You must eat the shit sandwich. And you must pay for it. If you are unable to pay for it, measures will be taken to subsidize your purchase of the shit sandwich. Bon Appetit!"

That's Obamacare. Rather than replacing the system responsible for the outrages, Obamacare actually compels participation in that system. It masquerades as reform, but is in truth a shameless giveaway to the for-profit health insurance industry that has been ripping us off all along. If it were Medicare for all, I would support it wholeheartedly, but it is not.

I could not agree more, and thank you for a super lucid exposition on Obama Care.

Does Ms. Jan understand that Arizona is not part of the 11th circuit?

The 11th circuits decision affects Az. But you already knew that.

 It really doesn't. The DOJ will likely appeal to the Supreme Court. If they do, and the Supreme Court hears the case, their determination will affect Arizona. The 11th circuit presides over Alabama, Georgia and Florida, AKA East Dumbfuckistan. Arizona is Dumbfuckistan in the Desert, and is under the 9th circuit.

Jan Brewer says "Major Triumph."  FOR WHO?  She can be such an ass with her shallow "talking points" sometimes.

This is certainly not a win for millions of citizens who want/need affordable health insurance and health care.

At last count, about 1 in 5 persons in Arizona was on ACCESS...I'm not sure how many are uninsured (but Ms. Brewer just rec'd permission to boost that number by 500,000)...so no solution for 20%+ of Arizona's population is a "win" for us how? 

I'd really like to see who's been paying the bill for her son's care for the past 22+ years.  Why don't you Ms. Brewer show us, taxpaying citizens, what a "triumph" that's been for us too.  Show us all the bills and who's paid!

I worked on the unit at the Az. State Hospital which houses Jan's little boy Ronnie and YOU and I and the rest of the taxpayers are footing the bill for his care.

Tax payer supported health care is only appropriate if the care is going to the politicians and their families.  The rest of Arizonans are are their own. (If you dont like it, then VOTE THE BUMS OUT OF OFFICE!)

of course the folks getting health care on the government teet don't want anyone else to get any.

While I don't particularly like Obamacare, Jan, in conjunction with Pearce, slashed $182 million from Arizona's health budget. Seems to me neither political party cares about voters.
