Liberty Loses Appeal on Obamacare Suit

An appeals court has turned aside a challenge to Obamacare by a Christian university. Liberty University claimed the law makes large employers provide health insurance to full-time workers. Liberty's attorneys claimed forcing people to buy an unwanted product is a violation of the constitution's Commerce Clause. But a panel of the 4th Circuit voted 3-0 against the school, which plans an appeal to the Supreme Court. The judges said the mandate does not force employers to buy an unwanted product since they many self-insure.
