Judge: IRS Obamacare Rule Is ‘Arbitrary, Capricious, and Abuse of Discretion’

court

Currently, over a hundred lawsuits have been filed against Obamacare – and Obamacare has lost 91% of the cases decided to-date, (71 losses out of 78 decisions), according to the latest tally by The Beckett Fund.

“Today’s ruling is a consequential victory for the rule of law.

The court’s order of vacatur is stayed, however, pending resolution of any appeal from thisobamacare-horror order.”
