White House Tells Supreme Court to Stay Away from Obamacare
michellemalin.com ^ | March 15, 2011 | Doug Powers

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 it’s possible that Chuck’s 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 Cuccinelli’s case is problematic because he may lack sufficient standing to challenge the health care law. [...] In his filing last month, Cuccinelli said there’s a “palpable consensus” that the high court will ultimately have to pass judgment on the merits of President Obama’s 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 they’re absolutely convinced of the health care law’s constitutionality, so with that in mind wouldn’t you think they’d 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.

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.

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.

Just buying more time while they continue to dismantle the best Healthcare System in the world. I am heartbroken for all Americans. And furious with the stupidity of the majority of voters in 2008. Why didn't they look past the rhetoric?? The most destructive Pres..ent ever. All taxpayers will have their taxes raised 10-20% and get LOTS less care. Wait in line at your local Government clinic. No choosing your doctor. No non-emergency surgery for weeks/months. Americans have NO IDEA what is in store for them. I do.

‘Does the SCOTUS have original jurisdiction?’

Does not matter since the case is already in multiple appellate Courts.

RE: “No standing.”

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.

IMHO it would, it's in multiple state courts. I think there could be a case for concurrent jurisdiction, but that gets way beyond my knowledge.

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.
