In a blatant display of Republican judicial activism, a federal judge in Florida today ruled that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional. Actually, Roger Vinson (appointed to bench by Ronald Reagan) became the second Republican judge to rule that the clause in the law requiring all Americans to purchase health insurance is unconstitutional. He went a bit further, however, and ruled that the entire law must be voided because of that one clause. Wow. Talk about legislating from the bench.

Needless to say, the White House was not impressed.
