Skip to comments.Barack Obama already knows Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare

If the Supreme Court has followed long standing tradition, the preliminary decision as to the Constitutionality of the ObamaCare individual mandate and perhaps the fate of the law itself was known to the Justices on Friday of last week.
After oral arguments it is common practice for the Justices to meet Friday morning in a conference room where each Justice votes on the case, beginning with the Chief Justice and proceeding according to seniority. Shortly thereafter Justices will be assigned the writing of majority and minority opinions and comment on various case issues. Decisions can change over the months until presentation of the final ruling, which in the case of ObamaCare will probably be sometime in late June. (1)
Whatever happened Friday morning, its a safe bet Barack Hussein Obama was the 10th person to know, having undoubtedly received a call from Elena Kagan minutes after the meeting ended.
What will be Obamas stagecraft between now and the day the Court makes its decision known to the rest of us?
Many political pundits believe Obamas chances for re-election will be seriously impaired if the Court should find his signature power grab unconstitutional. But dont believe it.
As was made obvious by his cynical race baiting in the Trayvon Martin affair, Obama is...

Be careful what you wish for,if Obamacare gets dumped the economy will probably soar and get the Marxist reelected
I’m worried that somehow Obama will find a way to get to one of the justices in favor of overturning his law to change their vote by some sort of intimidation behind the scenes.
I don’t think that he necessarily has the inside scoop. Hardly anyone on TV last week thought that it would be upheld, even liberal pundits. I’m not counting any chickens until they’re hatched though.
Hey, it's just words used for political purposes and loyalty checks. You're not really a liberal if you still need them to actually make sense.
Did I ever mention that gravity is purple, and sounds like Middle C? It's true. Just waffle it with some cherries and ask around. Everyone agrees - except those who aren't IN the group.
All the Republican politicians the Party had to choose from as an opponent for Hussein in November and they pick friggin’ Willard Romney, the ORIGINATOR of the most hated damned thing Obama has done during his Regime!!!!
Now THAT is a perfect example of the mind of the Republican Party—nominate the guy whose TURN it is, or the guy who has done the most FAVORS for Party leaders. In short, the MOST POPULAR DC insider with the Party elites.
I realize that is the real reason for DeathCare; however, the question I REALLY wanted to get answered was the coverage was there with HIPAA & CHIPRA, so why add another program. Perhaps your response is why no politician will answer the question.
On another note, why are we spending money on both DeathCare AND HIPAA + CHIPRA? Money we don’t have.
America better wake up and realize their country is being driven into bankruptcy by scumbag politicians. We don’t even have the money to cover half of the current bunch of entitlements the government promised to people. Where do the supporters of this bill expect the trillions of dollars to come from to pay for it? Too many Americans have faith in this corrupt government and too many believe in a free lunch.
The preliminary vote was done. No one but the justices know this outcome. Then comes the writings and, yes, a justice can change their mind in the end after reading the opinions.
But isn’t there some hard fast rule on letting this information “leak”? Can’t the Chief Justice punish any of the others for a “leak”?
In reading various analyses of the 3 days hearings, I also got the impression it would not be 5-4 but more like 6-3 or 7-2, or .. wouldnt it be ironice? ... 9=0.
In the case of the latter, I suspect that AJ Kagan would have finally done the right thing, if only to cover her ample posterior, and abstained from voting, a last second recusal, if you will, thus 8-0...
