With the ink barely dry from President Obama’s signature, the attorneys general in more than a dozen states went to court. They filed lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare’s individual mandate requiring virtually all Americans to purchase health insurance.
On his “Is it legal” segment last night, Bill O’Reilly posed the bottom-line question: What are the [...]
