Optional headline: Obamacare downgraded; Tea Party blamed

The stampede to the health care law ending up in the lap of the Supreme Court rambles on:

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled that the health care reform law’s requirement that nearly all Americans buy insurance is unconstitutional, a striking blow to the legislation.

The suit was brought by 26 states — nearly all led by Republican governors and attorneys general. The Department of Justice is expected to appeal.

The panel partially upheld a ruling issued in January by Judge Roger Vinson, who struck down the entire health reform law. However, the 11th Circuit said that the rest of the legislation can stand even if the mandate is unconstitutional.

The Obama administration now has 90 days to either ask the 11th Circuit to review their decision, or they can appeal to the Supreme Court. Or they might decide to put their hands over their ears and yell “la la la la I can’t hear you la la la la” and ignore it the way they’ve done with other rulings. We’ll see.

The Washington Post has more details.
