I imagine that Kagan called him as soon as the meeting was over. She already refused to recuse herself, so what’s one more ethical lapse?
This issue is the dividing line of the era. Between personal responsibility and the responsibility of the group.
The group already cares for children and the elderly. We also care for the disabled, and make sure that immediate needs for the poor are met.
Now we tread on life decisions for the abled bodied. To what degree are we expected to obtain care for ourselves, provided by the group? We need to left alone in this area and decide / arrange on our own; as a measure of freedom. Unencumbered by having to support others in the group. If medical care is not important to an individual, OK. If it is important, then obtain it. Acute care is available for all. Diagnostic care, not so much.
The Won is on Fox right now saying individual mandate was a conservative idea. Tells me he’s about to get slammed.
Funny how this communists King can get any information he wants. Let us try and the communists block is damn near air tight. Try getting his college information or his long form birth certificate. It is amazing how strong the communists are in America. Takes years of efforts to get anything.
He and his little commie friends - like Van Jones - have been hitting it hard since Saturday.
He knows he lost.
If he won - he wouldn’t risk alienating a swing vote - because his attacks - and his pals - have all been personal, and “in your face” - an easy way to get a justice to switch.
It plays to his victimhood culture - but realistically - evreyone is just sick of the spoiled tyrant.
There will be a point in the debates - when his adversary just leans over and says “why don’t you stop whining about everyone else, and pass a budget, before your term is over”.
Can somebody, anybody answer the question I have been asking for two and half years now, with ZERO results: “Why was this massive monstrosity needed when we already had HIPAA (Portability) and CHIPRA (child insurance)?” Both are funded through 2013.
To put it in the kindest terms possible, 0bambi is a f’n liar.
Worst case is that the court comes back with ‘this is a tax’ and dances around a bit. Because simply put, the easiest way to sidestep this whole arena is raise taxes by 5k a person and give a ‘tax credit’ of five thousand to everyone who complies with the buying of health insurance.
Yes, it's a backdoor mandate, but a lot harder to challenge that Congress’ power of making tax breaks.
I want the unequivocal, even if by the slimmest of majorities, ruling that specifically slams Congress for overstepping their bounds and limiting the commerce clause.
If POTUS knows the vote and it was favorable, it would have been the height of lunacy to “politicize” the decision by saying what he did. The most sensible course of action would have been to keep his mouth shut.
Thus, either he knows the vote was against him or he was preemptively trying to steer votes without knowing how people were inclined to vote. But the problem with the latter interpretation is that POTUS was silent all last week. If he wanted to preemptively steer votes, the best time to have done so would have been in advance of Friday’s vote. Even he has to know that any justice who changes their mind on this momentous issue is going to look foolish or craven. Thus, if the goal was to “steer” their thinking, it was best to do so before they committed to a vote since once that vote is cast, it will be much harder to justify changing it.
In light of the foregoing, I’d put the odds that he knows the vote at better than 4:1.
Even before Barack Hussein Obama was “sworn in” (yeah, THAT flub-a-dub production) he immediately began his relentless “march of destruction” across the Constitution, with apparent deceit and malice aforethought. “Keep ‘em confused” seems to be his method. - He’s a bizzy, bizzy, little wannabe ruler. - If he loses the election, look for a doozy of a temper tantrum and a level of fit throwing the likes of which you cannot imagine in your wildest dreams. Inciting riots? Hope not; but who knows what he will do in the wake of what he has already done to divide this country?
I will admit, that dude can read that teleprompter, and Speech 101 taught him well not to make a hissing sound with his “s’s” at the end of his words. - His regime tenure has been the most EXHAUSTING, DEPRESSING, OPPRESSIVE, TIRESOME, DISCOURAGING, YOU NAME IT, ever, in the history of this country.
Be careful what you wish for,if Obamacare gets dumped the economy will probably soar and get the Marxist reelected
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.
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”?
