Pres. Obama's health reform hits bump in road

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

President Obama's health care reform effort is hitting a bump in the road.

A Federal Appeals Court in Atlanta rejected the stipulation that virtually every American must carry health insurance.

The three judge panel agreed with the 26 states that sued to block the law.

Those states and other critics say the law violates individual rights.

The Justice Department disagrees, saying it is a "quintessential power."

The ruling is not the end of the debate.

Many experts expect it to bounce through the courts until it lands in the U.S. Supreme Court.
