We always knew that the individual mandate portion of Obamacare would be a problem and the most vulnerable part of President Obama’s signature piece of legislation. Now, a federal judge in Florida agrees, deeming the law unconstitutional mainly because of that specific mandate.

Judge Roger Vinson, a Reagan appointed judge, upheld a 26 state lawsuit that claims that the law was unconstitutional because it says that individuals must purchase health insurance or face fines or imprisonment.

You can read the entire ruling by Judge Robert Vinson here. There will be plenty to say about this in the future; just because a second federal judge has ruled Obamacare unconstitutional doesn’t mean it’s the end of the story.

The Administration will most assuredly appeal the ruling as well as put the spin machine into overdrive.

Michelle Malkin has much more on the ruling at the link. You can see where Tea Party favorite and conservative Jim DeMint stands, he doesn’t see this as a final piece to the puzzle. DeMint and others are continuing with their pledge to repeal the bill.

Whether legislatively or judicially, President Obama’s baby is in trouble. He asked for improvements during the SOTU speech, he’s getting them now.

UPDATE: The Administration is calling the ruling “judicial activism.” I’m sure no one is surprised by that.
