I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected congress.”

Against the will of a majority of Americans D-bagger.

As our Socialist-controlled Congress takes the extraordinary step of being Socialist activists. The term “Democrat” should no longer be used. I say they just call their party the Socialist Party and be done with it. Enough of the lie already!

The little fascist prigs are indeed hard at work to usurp the administration of justice.

To do this they engage in crimes against the constitution.

It is a crime for Kagan to disclose anyything about preliminary votes. She should be clapped in irons and tried, if that is what she is doing.

Leaky Leahy has been a threat to the security of the American people ever since he was elected.

Leahy is one of Vermonts bvillage idiots, of the former triumverate of Vermont Village idiots, Leahy, Jeffords and Dean. Of these three only Leahy is left, and it is past time this liberal fascist was GONE.How dare they even TRY to use undue influence on the Court, and it is a reason why Kagan should have recused herself. Now she needs to be arrested if she is leaking facts to interested parties.It goes against the Canon of Judicial ethics, and she can be arrested for it.

"And he alternately praised and threatened the Chief Justice, literally claiming that if Roberts joined other conservatives in a 5-4 decision against ObamaCare it would “…undoubtedly further erode the reputation and legitimacy of the Supreme Court.” (2)

Liberals truly live in a fantasy world where up is down, etc. Undoubtedly, if the SC were not to overturn the individual mandate, the reputation of the SC would be eroded completely. The American people will know that threats outweigh the Constitution and the nation no longer has any checks and balances.

What a waste of a click....

I went to the source and nowhere in the article is there a “threat” to Justice Roberts.

Yes, Leahy lectured Justice Roberts. Yes, Leahy said that overturning Obamacare would “erode” the credibility of the court.

But there was no “threat.”

I have said 100 times here and elsewhere. They cut down ObamaCare and we will hear “They took your health care” from the chief divider all summer right up into election day. Thats the phrase and he will use it.

Either way the Supremes decide, this is a no-win situation for Obama.

If they decide to strike down the mandate, then it will be seen for what it is, an attempt by liberals in Congress to violate the Constitution. For Obama, this will be guilt by association.

If the Supreme Court validates the individual mandate, then the 73% of the populace who are against Obamacare will become even angrier about the whole government, and the only remedy will be to vote the critters out, especially Obama, because the president nominates Supreme Court justices.

To: Oldpuppymax; All
My post on another thread concerning this topic follows. If you have read, then just ignore here.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident...all men are...
endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. That to secure these rights, governments
are instituted
among men."

"What are those unalienable rights with which we are endowed? They may be described in many ways, but English jurist Sir William Blackstone wrote in 1766, ".these may be reduced to three principal articles:

  1. the right of personal security (life);
  2. the right of personal liberty; and,
  3. the right of private property...."

So-called "intellectual" "progressives," such as Obama, those who taught and influenced him, those who advise him, as well as Leahy, show little grounding in the principles of the Constitution's foundations in the wisdom of the ages, as enunciated by Blackstone and America's Founders.

That Constitution was not to be used by men to expand government. It was "the People's" "chain" (Jefferson) to bind down political (legislative and executive) will of those who would exceed its limits on their power.

The works of Sir William Blackstone, along with the 85 essays of THE FEDERALIST, according to Jefferson, were to be used for the study of law at the University of Virginia.

Does it appear that those who attempt to "change" America from its foundations in liberty are using those those works as the basis of their understanding of America's basic law?

"Man, considered as a creature, must necessarily be subject to the laws of his Creator. . . . This will of his Maker is called the law of nature. . . . This law of nature, being coeval with mankind, and dictated by God, Himself, is of course, superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe to all countries, and at all times, no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this." - Sir William Blackstone, "Commentaries on the Laws of England"

"On every question of construction [of the Constitution] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or intended against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." - -Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823

I'm betting the democRATs know a 5-4 loss is heading their way, and this and the other assaults on Justice Roberts are an attempt to set up the narrative before the fact.

The liberal fatwa on the Supreme Court by the Senate jester is amusing entertainment. To see them rail against overturning an act of "democratically elected" representatives is a stretch when at least 7 of affirming Senate votes were from appointed senators - by definition, unelected. If anything, maybe the Court will give us a re-do in front of actual elected representatives.

Leaky Leahy should change the Depends more often and retire.

stinknmyer

Unintentionally true. It's the 4 justices who are ignoring the constitution that are the problem.

I am wondering if Kagan is leaking information to the left that the law is going to be overturned.

They would not be so viscious if it were not so.

Way too many biased political hack USSC 5/4 decisions to put any faith in these black robed traitors to the constitution.

Me must make sure odumbo is run out of office and give the next president enough votes in congress to throw CommieCare in the trash.

While I hope there are enough Constitutionally grounded votes from the USSC to overturn this crap sandwich the implications of not having a back up plan are too dangerous to contemplate.

CommieCare or MarxistMedicine cannot be allowed to take root in the USA otherwise it will be like every other government control program, a permanent institution acting like the 3rd rail in politics with millions of parasites voting to keep the taxpayer blood flowing to their teat sites.
