DUNN, NC — Today Federal Judge Roger Vinson ruled that one of the major provisions of Obamacare — the individual mandate that requires all Americans to purchase health insurance — invalid.   Judge Vinson wrote, “because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void.”

Congresswoman Ellmers’ reacted to the news saying, “This is what those of us in favor of repealing Obamacare have been saying all along — the law is flawed to the extent that it is not salvageable.   That is why I voted for repeal. We need to start over from scratch with real health care reforms that make sure patients, families and their doctors are in charge of their health care decisions, not politicians and bureaucrats in Washington.”
