U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson has issued a stay of his own ruling declaring the health care reform law unconstitutional, giving the Obama administration seven days to file an appeal.
The stay means implementation of the law can proceed pending the administrations appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
In his ruling, Vinson repeated what he has said previously that the citizens of this country have an interest in having this case resolved as soon as practically possible.
That was nearly eleven months ago, he wrote. In the time since, the battle lines have been drawn, the relevant case law marshaled, and the legal arguments refined. Almost everyone agrees that the constitutionality of the Act is an issue that will ultimately have to be decided by the Supreme Court of the United States. It is very important to everyone in this country that this case move forward.
Issue a stay or else something may happen to your family.
It was only a matter of time.
Why do I feel we’re so screwed?
7 days is March 10, 2011. so that means it is not unconstititional or is it unconstitional so he wants fast track to Supreme Court. Maybe Vinson is fed up with Odumbo wanting a clarification so he said okay you want to play dumb. I will let the aapellate court determine how damn stupid are your lawyers.
It’s only for seven days, right? Let’s see what develops here.
I wonder if Judge Vinson is doing this to speed up the appeals process?
I look forward to the end of next week.
What happens if they don’t appeal in 7 days?
Am I missing something. Judge did not accept the “we dont understand” rule. You have 7 days, is this not what we wanted?
Is there ANYONE not willing to cave in to this LAWLESS administration???
We wanted a cease and desist order until this thing is resolved.
Can’t get out of this one A-holes.
So do I.
The Supreme Court is making a mockery of our Constitution by not taking this case and resolving it.
Our economy and our very lives hang in the balance. Take it now dammit.
I thought this was a response to the govt. we dont understand rule? Did the Florida A.G. file for a desist order?
The JUDGE just DID!
“The stay means implementation of the law can proceed pending the administrations appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit”
Obama has been implementing Obamacare with a middle finger to Vinson’s ruling.
He was threatned. His next step was to start putting Admin officials in jail.
