RICHMOND - Virginia - (PTSD News) - A federal judge in Virginia ruled on Monday that a lynchpin provision of President Obama's health care law is unconstitutional as it exceeds the authority granted to Congress under the Commerce Clause. Buried in the same opinion, Judge Henry E. Hudson, appointed to the bench by George W. Bush, ruled that most of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 also exceded the power granted to congress as well as finding provisions of the federal minimum wage law unconstitutional.

"Nowhere in the Constitution, in the Commerce Clause or in any of the Amendments," Hudson said, "does it specifically grant the federal government the power to tell states how to govern their citizens when it comes to forcing them to purchase health insurance, be told who they can hire or allow on their private property or be told how much to pay a worker."

The Civil Rights Act and the federal minimum wage issues were not before the court, but Judge Hudson took up the issues on his own saying, "it's about time the activist judges of the past few decades who have legislated from the bench to force citizens into acting in a way that fits in with some politically correct agenda are finally overturned."

Former Virginia Senator George Allen welcomed the ruling saying that for far too long the federal government has interfered with states rights. "The thugs in Washington have no business telling Virginians how to run their lives," Allen said, "and besides, I have no idea what they are complainging about as we treat our Macacas good down here."

"I am pleased the judge got this right," said Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who had argued the case before Hudson, "This scourge called Obamacare which I am renaming Commiecare was nothing more than the overreaching audacity of a foreign born president who was put into office by the vote fraud of Acorn. In this unxious health care law, Barack Hussein Obama sets himself up as God by giving himself the power to try prolong the lives of people who made the chioce to be too poor to buy health insurance. What is most heinous about this whole mess is that Obama tries to do it by stealing tax dollars from those who have been conscientious enough to have obtained their own health insurance like the plan I have through the State of Virgina."
Cuccinelli says his next lawsuit will be to have the anti-slavery language of the Constituiton stricken because it was never the intention of the founding fathers to strip the citizens of certain states of their property. "The progressive Marxists are fond of bringing up Thomas Jefferson to support their socialist agenda, but let's see them tryin and talk their way out of the fact that Jefferson owned slaves."
