"Today's ruling is a victory not only for the people of the United States, but also for the freedoms we hold so dear. Judge Hudson's ruling confirms what many of us believed to be true nearly one year ago; that congress overstepped their authority in mandating that every American purchase health insurance.
"This ruling strengthens my lawsuit which currently awaits a hearing in a Missouri federal courtroom. This also boosts the efforts of more 20 other states that will bring their arguments before a Florida federal judge on Thursday.
“With an overwhelming majority of states joining this constitutional challenge, I am calling on Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster to join me in this legal effort on behalf of the people of the Great State of Missouri.
"Nearly one year ago, we watched as this law was passed in a series of back room deals and bribes, leaving cash strapped states like Missouri to cover the hefty tab. But now, with our continued efforts across state lines and with the new Congress expected to begin efforts on repealing and replacing this law with true, systematic health care reform, we are one step closer to putting an end to Washington’s attempt to control our health care system in America."
