Anoher judge strikes down Obamacare

A federal judge in Pennsylvania has found health car nationalization’s individual mandate unconstitutional. On severability, he splits the difference: the pre-existing conditions provision is not severable, but the rest is.  I think that’s a tenable position, as the individual mandate was designed specifically to support the pre-existing conditions provision. Still, I think a very strong argument can be made on similar grounds for striking down the price controls as well.
