Ensign: Federal Court Rules Healthcare Law Unconstitutional


Washington D.C. – Senator John Ensign released the following statement regarding today’s court decision by a federal judge in Florida that ruled the healthcare reform law unconstitutional. Today’s ruling, the broadest yet, points to the unconstitutionality of the individual mandate, which forces Americans to purchase health insurance before 2014 or face penalties. Senator Ensign argued against the constitutionality of this provision when the healthcare law was first up for debate and joined with his colleagues last week in offering legislation to repeal this part of the law.
