Another judge has ruled the individual mandate constitutional. That makes it 3 constitutional, 2 unconstitutional (and a fair number who didn't rule for a variety of reasons, like plaintiffs didn't have standing or the mandate didn't kick in until 2014). All 3 judges who have ruled it constitutional were appointed by Democratic President's, and both who have ruled in unconstitutional were appointed by Republican ones. It is interesting that both times a judge has ruled it unconstitutional, there was an immediate national hyperventilation about it....when judges rule it constitutional, nothing.
