Florida Judge Deals a Blow to Obama's Healthcare Law

Hosted by

Two federal judges appointed by Democratic presidents have ruled that a mandate requiring all Americans to buy health insurance is constitutional. Two appointed by Republican presidents have ruled the other way. But yesterday Florida Judge Roger Vinson did much more. He invalidated the entire law because its provisions -- some of which are already being implemented -- cannot be "severed" from the mandate to buy insurance. Noam Levey, health policy reporter for the Los Angeles Times, has the details.
