Oh, So THAT'S What's Going On....

The other day, I wondered why the lawsuits of the states against Obamacare weren't going anywhere while lawsuits about Arizona's immigration law seemed to be moving at warp speed.

Turns out, the federal government filed a request to dismiss the lawsuits.  So that had to be heard first.

Today, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson denied the request in the case of the lawsuit filed by Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.  Note this isn't the one that has nine states behind it.  This also doesn't mean Obamacare is about to get gutted on Constitutional terms.  It just means the judge feels the AG has raised points that should be decided in a court of law.  It doesn't indicate he thinks one side or another is right.  Please keep that in mind.

I am very interested in how the AG will lay out his case.  And I wonder if this means the other suits will get their day in court soon, as well.
