RE :”President Obama was the latest to weigh in when he declared Monday that a wide array of legal experts would be astonished if the court struck down part or all of his signature domestic initiative.
Im confident the Supreme Court will uphold the law, Obama said Monday during a Rose Garden press conference. Thats not just my opinion but also the opinion of legal experts across the political spectrum.
He said it would be unprecedented for the court to strike down the individual mandate, which requires the uninsured to buy health coverage or pay a penalty.
This is obviously a political message to Obama’s liberal base who didnt like Obama-care in the first place but found themselves rallying behind Obama against the Republican House. Once again he plays the same act against the SCOTUS to rally them.
Note his consistent style : He says is confident that the SCOTUS will do the right thing. He said the exact same thing about the Republican House on that deficit deal he blew up. Call it Phony optimism for political effect.
The legal arguments for upholding the mandate and other parts all revolve around court precedents giving congress power to do mostly anything it wants since Roosevelt. Notice Libs don't see precedents as their limitation, like marraige definition 10,000 years as opposite sex.
This is the obama who claims that DOMA is unconstitutional. Arrogance is his name for sure.
