President Obama’s Healthcare Unconstitutional? Law Professor, Douglas Lee Donoho, J.D., LL.M., Debates on PBS


Professor Douglas Lee Donoho, J.D., LL.M

Recently, a Pensacola, Fla. judge ruled that President Barack Obama’s healthcare law is unconstitutional, saying the federal government is overreaching when it forces individuals to buy health insurance. The lawsuit argues that the bill’s mandate requiring individuals to buy health insurance or pay a fine is unconstitutional.

The Justice Department said it will appeal, but the judge’s ruling is just the latest in a series of contradictory rulings that will likely need to be resolved by the Supreme Court.

NSU Law Center Professor Douglas Lee Donoho, J.D., LL.M., appeared on Helen Ferré’s weekend PBS show Issues to discuss the ruling. Watch the program here.
