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.

I don’t know much,
but I thought Jury-tampering was a crime.
I had kinda hoped that the pubbies would unleash the facts about the bogus birth certificate in Sept/Oct.
Do they have something new?
Has anyone else noticed that everythng this asshole has done has backfired recently
YES!!! Many of us, and many other Americans, have.
I am SO looking forward to the day when the five SCOTUS justices with sense publically bitch-slap this miserable effing weasel POS.
It’s supposed to happen in June; next month.
Since he grew up in Chicago, the capital of Illinois,
Chicago is NOT the capitol of IL. Springfield is the capitol.
I’ll bet Diana Ross and Mary Wilson told Obama where to go.
How can he file additional papers with the Court after the case has been submitted? Can the other side respond to this? The Court should not even read this submission otherwise.
And this has nothing to do with the case. A problem with Medicare is not for the Court to correct but for the legislature to pass legislation to address.
This is absurd.
Count on nothing from the Republicans. They’re too easily browbeaten into timidity to be of any good.
In a sane world, the supreme court would warn baraq not to f with them. In legal terms of course.
IIRC, Medicare was operating just fine before obammacare, so why would if be any different if obamamcare was removed? It won’t! Just more scare tactics to force the USSC to vote obamma’s way.
So he is trying to sow up the Medicare vote just like he did the female vote.
SCOTUS needs to send a letter back to the Kenyan guy telling him to go take a flying leap at a rolling donut.
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?
We’re a thoroughly corrupt Oligarchy. Among many other things.
I am from Illinois. I know Barry didn’t grow up in Chicago, and I also know the capitol. But since I am a product of Ill-Annoy public schools, I how need to trust the NATO spokeslady who claims Barry grew up in Chicago, and that Chicago is our capitol. We need to submit to their version of the facts. C’mon..
Really? But NATO says Chicago is the capitol. We all know the capitol of Madiganistan is Quinnoccio’s Puppet Village aka Springpatch.
” And this has nothing to do with the case. A problem with Medicare is not for the Court to correct but for the legislature to pass legislation to address.
This is absurd.”
They are desperate, that’s all.
Another day in Obamaland.

This is Swahili for: Obama warns voters: don’t overturn me.
How many Americans still leave the care of their elderly/infirm in the hands of the state (read: state workers)?
The Indians in Kenya/Uganda learned the hard way; take them yourselves.
