BREAKING NEWS: Three judge panel upholds individual mandate in health law

A three judge panel upheld the individual mandate in the health reform law today by a vote of 2 to 1.  In its ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, based in Cincinnati, said the "minimum coverage provision is a valid exercise of legislative power by Congress under the Commerce Clause" of the U.S. Constitution.  This was the first time the health law had been considered at the appellate court level.
