Team Obama tells Supreme Court to Stay Away From Health Care Challege
Fox News ^ | March 14, 2011 | Lee Ross

Posted on 03/14/2011 10:06:56 PM PDT by Citizen X_Area 51

The Obama administration told the Supreme Court on Monday night it should stay away from a high-profile challenge to the 2010 health care law until after a lower court has had a chance to review the case.

Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal wrote, "there is no basis for short-circuiting the normal course of appellate review." Katyal also says Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's case is problematic because he may lack sufficient standing to challenge the health care law.

Stay away because they could decide that it really is unconstitutional?

This is the same court that gave him a pass on producing proof of his legitimacy to BE president.

Will the Supreme Court up hold the rule of law or the rule as the judges make it up as they go and are intimidated?

Besides, the White Hut is just trying to slow down the process. The Supremes should NOT allow that, after what they have NOT done.

Cowards.

So - Obama has already assumed the SCOTUS’s authority to review and declare laws constitutional or unconstitutional... and is ordering the court around on what they can and cannot even look at?

Hello - his hubris is now to the point that if CONgress doesn’t seriously consider investigating and charging Obama with high crimes of subverting the conspiring against the US Constitution, then the entire CONgress needs to be voted out as we get the opportunity.

Hey Obama, we're not a communist country yet. You just can't have 'your way'. We have a constitution and separation of powers. Soon you will not be president and btw, I need to thank you for one thing: You have cured the country of ever electing a socialist/communist again. Remember, it's November 6, 2012.

Somehow that phrase, along with the concept of separate branches of government, seems to have escaped this administration.

The Supreme Court needs to tell the President and his executive branch to go pound sand.

Who are they to tell the Supreme court what to do ?
It seems they are openly threatening the Supreme Court.

The Obama administration can put it where the sun don't shine as far as the SCOTUS is concerned.

Obama needs to understand that government that serves United States of America works nothing like the third world republics that he idolizes.

This isn’t the case we want in front of SCOTUS anyway - we want the one going to the 11th Circuit. The one that declares Obamacare unconstitutional.

Obama is just following up on the in chambers chit chat he had with the justices months ago. There is something going on that such a meeting could be had at that time and now with the audacity to tell the court to bug off. I wish I knew for certain what is going on. Millions of other people probably want to also know. In the meantime I’ll put on hold that the justices are honorable and don’t have some peculiar personal circumstances.

The Obama administration is desperately hoping that one of the conservative justices will have to retire from illness prior to hearing this case.

Federal Judge Roger Vinson, who is right here in town, has already ruled Obamacare unconstitutional. He is the second Federal Judge to do so. Our new Governor Rick Scott, has thrown the weight of his office behind it too.

This is a response to the Virginia Obamacare challenge. VA’s AG petitioned SCOTUS to expedite the procedure and bypass the Court of Appeals.

VA won at the District Court level; it’s being appealed at the Circuit Court of Appeals level. VA wants the case expedited. The Administration wants it to drag out as long as possible, including the year or so it would take to get thru the Court of Appeals. That’s what this brief is about, delay and stall.

There is a split between the circuits, always a strong factor in SCOTUS taking a case. The District Courts in VA and FL have declared the law either unconstitutional in its totality, or in part Three other circuits (DC/MI and ???) have declared it constitutional.

The SCOTUS will eventually take this case and/or the FL case, whether expedited or not. This is just in response to VA’s petition to expedite, it’s not a final appeal.

This appears to be in response to Cuccinelli’s filing for a writ of certiorari. If that is the case, this is no big deal and Fox should be admonished for their headline.As the named party in the original case, the United States govt has every right to challenge the plaintiff’s motion.

The case referred to in the article is the Virginia case, not the Florida case. If I understand it correctly, both Virginia and Oklahoma filed suits separately from the other 25 or so states that received a ruling from the judge in Florida.

The case that has the best potential to shut down the entire health care law, imo, is the one where the Florida federal judge ruled that the law was unconstitutional.

The other cases, including the Virginia and Oklahoma cases, seem to be “sideshows”, and were perhaps ill-advised. But, I’m not a constitutional lawyer, so I could be missing something.

Katyal also says Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's case is problematic because he may lack sufficient standing to challenge the health care law.

This "sufficient standing" crap I find extremely annoying. It shouldn't matter whether you're being personally harmed by an unconstitutional law. All it should require is that the plaintiff/s show evidence that it might be unconstitutional.

That headline is grossly misleading, and it’s clear a number of folks didn’t follow the link or don’t know what the actual issue is. The Administration’s brief is opposing EXPEDITING the VA AG’s challenge, not the case itself. They will do that later.

Sure, they are hoping to stall and delay in the hope that a Republican-appointed Justice may retire or God forbid, die. Or maybe they hope that popular opinion will chanage Or that the law’s implementation will be too far advanced to reverse by the time it’s taken up in the normal course of legal maneuverings.

But this particular brief is what the Solicitor General is supposed to do, and what Solicitors General have done for untold cases through every Administration. And it is NOT telling the Court to stay away from health care. It is responding only to a petition to expedite the VA case being heard.

It's obvious the strategy is to tie the court's hands politically.

Once ObamaCare's been implemented at a large scale the court will naturally take that into account.

He's hopes to delay the decision because he knows there's a reasonable chance the court will not go his way. If he were confident in his position, he'd encourage SCOTUS to decide on constitutionality on a fast track basis.

Dragging this out is NOT in the nation's best interest but it IS in Obama's.

I was gonna say, thats kinda balsey. Sounds like a challenge. Not that I think this court has balls. I don’t. If they did, they would take up the citizenshop/qualification issue. But chickens***s are ducking that too.

I don’t trust SCOTUS anymore. Do you?

The Supreme Court has Original Jurisdiction on this case. It should never have been brought before the lower courts in the first place. Under the Constitution the Supreme Court is the ONLY court that has any business reviewing this law.
