Good luck with that

"The Justice Department on Thursday asked the Florida judge who struck down the health care overhaul to declare that the law must still be obeyed."

The feds are being forced to take this desperate and humiliating action in response to a recent announcement by Alaska Governor Sean Parnell that he will refuse to implement any of the provisions of Dear Leader's Ponzi scheme, as that entire law was recently thrown out as unconstitutional by Federal Judge Roger Vinson (Alaska is one of the 26 states which sued to overturn the law on those specific grounds.  Other governors are expected to quickly follow Parnell's lead). 

"In his ruling, Vinson implied that the government did not have the authority to enforce an unconstitutional law."

Hence the obvious lack of need for him to issue a separate injunction blocking its enactment.  Duh.  Even legal neophytes such as ourselves can comprehend that simple fact.

'"We believe it is important to put to rest any doubts about the ability of states and other parties to continue to implement these critical programs and consumer protections provided under this statute,' Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler said."
We hope the press checks back with Ms. Schmaler for additional comment once Judge Vinson laughs Eric Holder's incompetent lackeys out of his courtroom.
