(Reuters) - President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law suffered a setback on Friday when an appeals court ruled that it was unconstitutional to require all Americans to buy insurance or face a penalty.

The U.S. Appeals Court for the 11th Circuit, based in Atlanta, ruled 2 to 1 that Congress exceeded its authority by requiring Americans to buy coverage, but it unanimously reversed a lower court decision that threw out the entire law.

The legality of the individual mandate, a cornerstone of the healthcare law, is widely expected to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. Opponents have argued that without the mandate, which goes into effect in 2014, the entire law falls.

ObamaCare is dependent on the exponential expansion Medicaid. It will not fly to put this kind of expenditure on the states.

Kansas and, I believe, eight others states have sent the Federal money back to them.

This was the case from the 26 states so it was a big blow if those 26 states now have a legal reason not to start implementing Obama's signature bill to failure.

I believe this quote is applicable:

"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government." Patrick Henry..
