WASHINGTON - AP is reporting: "A federal judge rejected a key provision of the Obama administration's health care law as unconstitutional Monday, ruling the government cannot require people to buy insurance, in a dispute that both sides agree will ultimately be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court."

Flowers is congressional fellow for the 18,000-member Physicians for a National Health Program; Almberg is the organization's communications director. Flowers said today: "This ruling is just another sign of the deterioration of this complicated piece of legislation. What's needed is a more reasonable, simpler approach, which would be enhanced Medicare-for-all."
