Third judge rules against health reform challenge

For those of you keeping score, legal challenges to health care reform are now 3-2 in FAVOR of reform. A third judge this week tossed out a lawsuit challenging reform on constitutional grounds. Two judges previously ruled against it.

Despite what some on the radical  right would have you believe, rejection of the health care reform law is not a given.

Here are a couple of reports on the recent ruling. One from the left and one from the right.

Lawsuit sparks divergent comments on ‘tax lady’

She’s all over TV and now she may be all over.

California’s attorney general on Monday filed a $34 million suit against the “tax lady” Roni Deutch, accusing her firm of making false promises to help taxpayers resolve IRS problems.

It’s interesting to see how readers respond to reports filed by different news outlets. Depending on who’s commenting, the suit is election year politics by California AG Jerry Brown or a righteous prosecution.

Check out the differing views expressed in comments posted on Yahoo! News and Fox News.com.
