Cooch: If We Win Lawsuit, Entire Health Care Bill Dies


    Cooch may be an extremist, and he may be a nutjob, but is he right about this?

    Greta Van Susteren: “If your clause about the mandate is declared unconstitutional, does the entire statute go down?”

    Cooch: “…if you look at our brief, we spent a good deal of time on that, because the answer to that question is yes, the whole bill dies if we win on the individual mandate…there is no severance clause…”

    Any constitutional law experts care to comment?
