Posted on 03/15/2011 5:10:30 PM PDT by PROCON
Senator Schumer is pretty sure that the Supreme Court is not one of the equal but separate branches of government, so as such its possible that Chucks advised the White House that they have the power to tell the Supreme Court what to do:
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 Cuccinellis case is problematic because he may lack sufficient standing to challenge the health care law. [...] In his filing last month, Cuccinelli said theres a palpable consensus that the high court will ultimately have to pass judgment on the merits of President Obamas health care law and should do so without delay. Furthermore, Cuccinelli argues that his case involves pure issues of constitutional law that appellate judges on the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals will be unable to definitively resolve. Team Obama has said theyre absolutely convinced of the health care laws constitutionality, so with that in mind wouldnt you think theyd welcome a fast-track opinion on the law and ultimate thumbs-up from the Supreme Court?
Scotus should take the case and rule it void by next week.
SCOTUS should demand to see some ID.
They need more time to get one of the Conservative justices to retire...... or to bring phony charges up to muddy the waters....
The libs are idiots repeal Commiecare now and make it a campagin issue..
Does the SCOTUS have original jurisdiction?
Do you notice a pattern of “no standing” no matter how/what is challenged with this administration??? My teeth are going to ground to nubs.
Justice Alito should contact the WH and suggest that should have been conveyed to them at the SOTU address.
Orders from our communists black Muslim dictator and they better listen.
Hmmmm. I wonder. Does F. Chuck Schumer have standing in this case?
I find it interesting that a law that directly affects my well being and economic welfare is passed, I believe it is unconstitutional, and yet I have “no standing” to file a suit.
We’re all going to be babbling idiots by the time this creep returns to Chicago or wherever it is Marxists head for today...
Amen. Well said.
‘Does the SCOTUS have original jurisdiction?’
Does not matter since the case is already in multiple appellate Courts.
WHAT THE F=ING F??????????? WHO THE HELL HAS STANDING IF NOT EVERY SINGLE CITIZEN??? DAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMITDAMMIT~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mussolini Lives - in the White House.
Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky did their jobs well.
...and I pray that the five will be healthy for the duration.
Well, it does seem as if the Supremes are bowing down to the usurper. They’re evading the NBC issue so why not Obamacare?
This should encourage Alito.
Just what I was thinking. Nobody BELOW Obama has “standing” for anything. He thinks we are all permanent serfs, just because he fooled a lot of people two years ago. This guy has a rude awakening in store for him.
I'd love to see the Supremes hand him his head-maybe include a severe punishment for interfering with the judiciary.
If I was Obama, I’d do the same thing. I’d want to drag this thing out as long as possible to let the health care monstrosity get its hooks into the American fabric. Obama can say whatever he wants. That’s the president’s prerogative. But it’s up to the Supreme Court to tell him to go to hell.
1 For the administration to respond and oppose the request for expedited hearing is perfectly normal and is no more arrogant than the request for expedited hearing (neither is arrogant).
2 IMHO the admin is hoping a conservative justice will retire or die before this is heard.
If 10 million patriots showed up outside the White House, all in very bad moods, would We the People have standing then?
Has he not even READ the Constitution once?
Liberal fascism alert.
I hope so too, I can’t imagine that even some of his lap dogs on the Supreme Court appreciate this administration telling them what their place is now, and they had better stay in it!
I hope the Supremes take note of the attitude coming from the White House.
Only in our dreams but this SC is very passive. As the nation burns they sit on their buns. There is no place to turn in this world but toward God. If this bill is not found in it's entirety to be unconstitutional then there must be an all out revolution or live in a communist state.
I hope some of the Supremes are still ticked at Obama for
turning the State of the Union into a heckling of the Justices. I hope they have verrrry long memories...
“Katyal is best known for successfully defending Salim Hamdan, Osama bin Laden’s chaffeur, before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2006. His victory forced Congress to craft an alternative plan to George W. Bush’s military commissions and the legal ramifications of Hamdan v. Rumsfeld are still resonating throughout the legal and policy world”
And his arrogance is built on argon gas...inert.
It is time to impeach this charlatan.
With all his putative education, it would seem Obama never learned the phrase “separation of powers.”
Oh how I hope that the Supreme Court is drafting a letter telling 0 to go suck an egg. We’ve seen the damage that always results when this nutcase gets his way.
And in Bloomberg's line of work, that's saying something!
It is a delaying tactic intended to allow the implementation of as much of Obamacare as they can before the SC declares it unconstitutional.
They need more time so that they can arrange for an unfortunate accident to befall one of the conservative SC justices.
