The Supreme Courts stunning rejuvenation of the Obamacare mandate into a new tax didnt leak to Washington D.C. insiders but it appears that it may have leaked to yet-unknown Wall Street investors.
In a brief 10-minute period starting at 9:32 a.m., the stock value of the nations largest hospital chain, HCA Holdings Inc., jumped from $26.81 per share to $27.53 as bidders bought several hundred thousand shares before the court made its announcement just after 10 a.m.
The bidders who snatched up shares before the announcement made a gain of roughly $2 a share once the price rose again after the court officially announced its backing for the law.
The bidding and the price jump came more than 30 minutes before Chief Justice John Roberts read his unexpected decision from the bench.
At roughly 10:06 a.m., Roberts announced that the law was constitutional, providing it was reinterpreted as a tax increase.
We'll likely never know if there was a leak, and it's certainly doubtful we'll ever know what comes thru O's super secret, sealed Blackberry .. but were there to be an evil culprit, I'd put NOTHING past her:
zer0 is not fundraising like crazy for his health... people just are not contributing like they did in 2008. Thus, a few strategic trades by some “bundlers”, and voila! zer0 gets his billion!
Looks like Insider Trading. I put nothing past this bunch of thugs.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Very savvy insight!
Mr. Soros, pick up the red phone ...
Evil crooks and thugs, Red ... ALL of them.
God help us.
Fascinating...and I’m with you- nothing any of this crowd would do can surprise me anymore- though I still have the capacity for shock as was proven yesterday.
I’m beyond sickened and depressed.
Utterly breathtaking leave of his primary
duty and obligation to defend the citizenry
from the claws of an oppressive, tyrannical
govt, as so clearly intoned and emphasized
by the Constitution, on the part of Supreme
Roberts (Chief Legacy and Tone Arbiter).
