Another Ruling Supporting Health Reform Law

You are very unlikely to hear it in the mainstream media, but U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler became the third Federal judge to rule in favor of the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, which has been President Obama's signature achievement thus far. Two Federal judges appointed by Rethuglican Presidents have ruled against the Act. Guess which rulings captured vastly more media attention?

As more and more provisions of the Act take effect, the public will notice that they are not being marched off to socialist concentration camps to be interviewed by death panels. Sadly, the good news that the law is being upheld isn't considered as "newsworthy" as victories by the wingnuts and their backers in the private health insurance industry.
