Posted on 05/04/2012 4:22:33 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
The Obama administration warned the Supreme Court this week via papers filed with the Court that if Obamacare is struck down, there will be an extraordinary disruption in Medicare.
Medicare was not discussed during the Supreme Court arguments, since it was not a Constitutional issue.
This is a practical argument, not a legal one; its the Obama administration applying pressure to the Supremes. But thats what the Obama administration does they focus on the politics of the situation rather than on the legalities.
If they cant win on the law, they figure, theyll push the Court to act via empathy, President Obamas favorite legal standard.
And if they lose, theyll blame the Court for destroying Medicare. Its a win-win for the Obama administration: if the Court strikes down Obamacare, Obama will blame the Court for harming Medicare. If the Court upholds Obamacare to prevent an extraordinary disruption in Medicare, Obama gets what he wants.

valerie jarrett....commie obama is not a morning person...
guess he didn’t learn anything the last time....but then again, it’s Friday and he’ll come up with another story by Monday.
Nice little hostage he’s got there in the elderly.
So they are supposed to be attending to the welfare of an unrelated program while deciding the constitutionality of Obamacare. Sounds like he wants them to help run HHS not be a coequal branch of government.
I had kinda hoped that the pubbies would unleash the facts about the bogus birth certificate in Sept/Oct.
Maybe they best up the disclosure date to early June so that the elderlies on SCOTUS can take the measure of a truly flawed poseur of a politician!
Can the Supremes haul someone into the Court for contempt? I would really like to see that.
he didn’t learn
I don't know much,
but I thought Jury-tampering was a crime.
“The Obama administration warned,,,,,,if Obamacare is struck down, there will be an extraordinary disruption in Medicare.”
Thats because they knew their Obamacare would face immediate challenge in court, so they intertwined it as much and as quickly as possible.
Since it was a deliberate act by Obama, he cannot complain when someone calls his islamic bluff.
Based on past events associated with the eligibility issue, I have this feeling that the Supremes will be the first to blink, and Bambi knows it.
Between the Supremes and congresscritters I often wonder where the label ‘Home of the Brave’ comes from when describing our country now that ‘Land of the Free’ has become a dubious expression.
Are we still a representative republic with three co-equal branches of government that check-and-balance each other, or are we now a third-world dictatorship?
This guy IS Hitler.
is this a hint that he got “word” of a bad judgement by SCOTUS???
He wants them to kill it.....he thinks it will help him win the election, but it won’t
Has anyone else noticed that everythng this asshole has done has backfired recently
Bad move Hussein...
warnings are like talking...they are both cheap...never make one unless you can actually back it up...cause someone may take you down before you can make it happen!
They had their day in court,
Why isn't this ‘attempt to influence the court’ or some legal language that must prohibit this?
And this POS taught constitutional law.
