ObamaCare Petition Reaches the Supreme Court


The Thomas More Law Center has filed a petition asking the U.S Supreme Court to strike down the 6th Circuit's June 29th ruling that upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's individual mandate. That was the ruling where Judge Jeffrey Sutton, a conservative George W. Bush appointee, voted in favor of the health care law while penning a lengthy ode to judicial restraint. Don't expect the Supreme Court to bite just yet, however, since we're still waiting on ObamaCare rulings from the 4th and 11th Circuits. This is just the first of several inevitable petitions. But it does mean the Supreme Court is one step closer to weighing on the constitutionality of the individual mandate.
