Florida Judge "Health Care Bill Unconstitutional"


Roger Vinson (Senior United States District Judge) quoted James Madison 'the chief architect of our federalist system' in the second page of his ruling:


If men were angels, no government would be necessary.
If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal
controls on government would be necessary. In framing a
government which is to be administered by men over
men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable
the government to control the governed; and in the next
place oblige it to control itself.
 You can read the ruling here. 


"For the reasons stated, I must reluctantly conclude that Congress exceeded
the bounds of its authority in passing the Act with the individual mandate." -Roger Vinson
