    President Barack Obama’s health care reform law has been rule unconstitutional by a Virginia judge.
     
    According to
    CNN, U.S. District Judge Henry rejected the “individual mandate,” a major part of Obama’s reform, because it is “beyond the historical reach of the U.S. Constitution.” The rule would require most Americans to buy health care by within the next three years.

     
    "No specifically constitutional authority exists to mandate the purchase of health insurance,” the judge wrote. "Despite the laudable intentions of Congress in enacting a comprehensive and transformative health care regime, the legislative process must still operate within constitutional bounds.”

     
    Reportedly, a federal judge from Virginia ruled in support of the mandate this month, following a Michigan judge’s ruling in October.

     
    Judge Henry’s decision to strike down the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is simply the latest hurdle in Obama’s efforts for sweeping reform, which the president signed off on back in March.
