Judge Tosses Suit Over IRS Health Care Law Regulation

Sam Kazman, general counsel for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said in a statement that the ruling "delivers a major blow to the states that chose not to participate in the Obamacare insurance exchange program."

"In upholding this IRS regulation that is contrary to the law enacted by Congress, this decision guts the choice made by a majority of the states to stay out of the exchange program," Kazman said.
