    Thumbs up Court Strikes Down Obamacare

    US appeals court rules against Barack Obama’s health care law
    A federal appeals court panel on Friday struck down the requirement in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul package that virtually all Americans must carry health insurance or face penalties.

    The divided three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the so-called individual mandate, which is considered the centrepiece of the law, siding with 26 states that had sued to block the law. But the panel didn’t go as far as a lower court that had invalidated the entire overhaul as unconstitutional.
