Thanks jazusamo.
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents suggesting Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan helped coordinate the Obama administration's legal defense of the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) while she served as Solicitor General. Kagan has said she was not involved in Department of Justice (DOJ) preparations for legal challenges to Obamacare. Moreover, the Supreme Court justice did not recuse herself from the High Court decision in April 2011 not to "fast-track" for Supreme Court review Virginia's lawsuit challenging Obamacare.

She can be impeached, which won’t happen, and would be after the fact anyway. Recusal is a function of her moral compass.

>Can the other judges on the Supreme Court force her to recuse herself? Can anyone?

I don’t know.

>Can a Republican majority Congress impeach her?

No, because Republicans [as-a-party] have shown they do not have either the will or the moral-conviction to do so by applying the Constitution.

At the very least, if ObamaCare reaches the Supreme Court, Kagan should be forced to recuse herself.

The only reason SCOTUS matters is because the States just roll over and play dead. They do not have any obligation to enforce an unconsitutional law, and SCOTUS (part of the Federal government itself) was never intended to be the final word on what the Feds get to do to us.

That is one thing that roiled the South in the run up to the Civil War. Northern states were nullifying the Fugitive Slave Law that required individuals to hunt down fugitve slaves, whether they wanted to or not, under plenaly of fine and/or imprisonment. Dred Scott answered the controversy, and of course we know how the rest of it went.

Those hoping the SC will stop this unconstitutional piece of garbage are *fools*. The fix is in, was from the get go. And we have people like Mitt Romney considered “front runners”? How do you like them apples?

The fascists got a great deal, temporarily giving up control of the House in exchange for railroading this monster through.

Obama appoints 2 more Justices and we had better be seriously prepared for crimes on the part of the federal government that have been thought impossible in this country. The right “crisis” and there will be an executive order suspending civil liberties.....indefinitely.

By who? The rallying cry of liberal law breakers is "no controlling legal authority". Worked for Gore and the Buddist Temple, is working for Obama and his fictional eligibility. And it will work if this case ever gets to the SC.

If the Republicans had any integrity, they would force a Constitutional crisis over her when if/when this gets to the court. They won't.

Yes, she should but I would be surprised if she did unless pressured to do so.....

The Left never seems to do the ethical thing. The lefties are always about furthering their policies and judicial activism.

Republicans pencil-whipped her approval and let her slide in with no resistance. Much was known of her lying. They chose not to bring it up. Remember in November 2012.

We have so much to do:
vote out this president
get a majority in the House and Senate
Impeach Justice Kagan
repeal obamacare
reduce size of government
get the borders secure
Then, and only then, get a new immigration policy and process

Yet anther problem with the injustice system is the injustices discretion in whether or not their they themselves have a conflict of interest. LoL

It really is amazing how easily corruptible our Federal injustice system is and discussing how arrogant the injustices are about it.
