Iam thinking it was a 7/2 vote.
Obummer and his crew know that they are screwed. His best
chance is to try to strong arm another one or two. That way they can claim in the fall that it was a Conservative/radical right wing court that over reached and screwed all the parasites of free stuff.
I think Breyer would be the one to cross if Obamacare is struck down.
However, if it's upheld, then I think that Kennedy and Scalia would be the ones to join the 4 libs. Here's one of Scalia's quotes from 1/2011:
Persuade your fellow citizens it's a good idea and pass a law. That's what democracy is all about. It's not about nine superannuated judges who have been there too long, imposing these demands on society.
That one's got me more than a bit nervous.
Rush is saying this same thing right now, that O knew the internal vote.
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 .. wouldn’t it be ironice? ... 9=0.
