Nope 5-4 will uphold it I believe
off the SCOTUS I’m sure ! wooo hooo !
Rat judges did the other 2 rulings.

God bless Ken Cuccinelli, and God bless the Commonwealth.
negative.. it will be 5-4 to overturn it... IF the accept certiorari... what are the chances they will not accept cert?
yes, sorry I agree, 5-4 to overturn HC.
I misspoke, I meant that 5-4 decision to uphold the CONSTITUTION ( thus overturning Obamacare)
Ken Cuccinelli is a solid Conservative and good man. Lets hope our luck holds out in the Supreme Court.
“Nope 5-4 will uphold it I believe”
