"If a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house. The reason they don’t have a house is they don’t have the money.” –Barry Hussein SoetoroIt’s the classic John F. Kerry I was for it before I was against it. Not only did the District Court in Florida rule that Obamacare is unconstitutional, the president when he was Senator running for office thought the individual mandate was unconstitutional too.
So why did president Barry Hussein Soetoro waste two years of the country's time campaigning for a law that he knew was unconstitutional? In the words of former president Bill Clinton, "Because [he] could."
Not only did president Soetoro think an individual mandate to buy health insurance was wrong he said so repeatedly. (see 23sec video)

See Judge Roger Vinson’s ruling below.
Why would the president of the United States take the country through a constitutional battle when he knows the law, which he signed, is unconstitutional.
Perhaps it’s for the same reason he refuses to clear up the constitutional issues regarding his eligibility. This president holds the U.S. constitution in contempt.
