Obama Admin. Hoist on own petard by Judge Vinson
Last week I mentioned that, in an effort to further stall halting implementation of Obamacare, the White House asked Judge Vinson's for clarification of his ruling that Obamacare is unconstitutional. They got a seven day stay which is bad news for them!
According to Ed Morrissey, the stay is "predicated on the Obama administration filing an application for expedited appeal, either with the appeals court or the Supreme Court
"Otherwise, Vinson ruled, his original ruling has an immediate injunctive effect that nullifies the entirety of the ObamaCare law. He also expressed no small amount of derision for the respondents' argument to the contrary"
