Judge in VA strikes down ObamaCare law

A federal judge in Virginia has declared the Obama administration's health care reform law unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson is the first judge to rule against the law, which has been upheld by two others in Virginia and Michigan.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli filed the lawsuit challenging the law's requirement that citizens buy health insurance or pay a penalty starting in 2014.

The ObamaCare law not only mandates a fine for not buying insurance, it can also send Americans to jail for not buying the prescribed insurance in 2014.

The Virginia action may be just the beginning.
