Democrats Brush Off Constitutional Challenges To Obamacare

Thursday's Wall Street Journal carried and editorial noting that Florida district court judge Roger Vinson denied the Justice Department's request for an extension to reply to the multi-state suit over Obamacare.

Never mind that a judge thinks it important to consider the constitutional question. The editorial quotes Frisco Nan as declaring the suit by 20 state AGs "frivolous."

Cabinet secretary Sebelius characterized it as "more to do with politics than with policy."

Never the less, Wonderboy's Justice gang is trying to slow-roll and delay the suit, hoping, no doubt, to drag it out so that it will fade from the public's memory.

Fortunately, judge Vinson observed that Justice possesses the not inconsiderable resources of the federal government.

So their homework is due, as planned. Should be interesting to read what they cook up, now that they are evidently under such time pressure and scarce resources.
