Obama has another bad day

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled that the individual mandate in health care reform law is unconstitutional. This is the first time a judge appointed by a Democratic President (Bill Clinton) has ruled the law unconstitutional. President Obama was hardest hit.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is expressing confidence that it’s constitutional to require people to have health insurance and believes that President Barack Obama’s health care law will be survive all legal challenges in the end.

Obama adviser Stephanie Cutter says the White House strongly disagrees with an appeals court ruling Friday that struck down the insurance requirement at the center of a law.

She says the White House is confident that ruling will not stand.

Cutter notes on the White House blog that four other courts, including a different appeals court, has upheld the law.
