"JUSTICE SCALIA: All right. The consequence of your proposition, would Congress have enacted it without this provision, okay that's the consequence.

That would mean that if we struck down nothing in this legislation but the -- what you call the corn husker kickback, okay, we find that to violate the constitutional proscription of venality, okay?"

Yup. The Supremes know about it. They are all aware.

I may be dreaming, but I would not be surprised at all if this is close to unanimous. Possibly 7-2 against.

It also would not surprise me if we get a verdict way before June. The reason? The Supremes will say that they do not want it to be perceived as being political, so they want to release it as far ahead of the election as possible.
