Skip to comments.Obama Warns Supremes: Don't Overturn Healthcare Reform
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.

“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.”
Ahh a financial issues for the financial genius of congress to work on. I feel better already about the fate of medicare.
Congress is “great” with balancing budgets.
The Obama movementin its present day is in its pre riot stages, as Obamas community organization Acorn etc. sub rosa
creates the emotion to bring it about. What we see now is merely the tip of the riot iceberg.
The Obama movements supposition is that Americans are domestic cowards, and can be made fearful and shaped like a herd of docile cows. Is that supposition now true? So far it has proven true according to the Alinsky plan. The Supreme Court stands in Obamas way, and he is prepared to go against any ruling they make on the basis of Those Judges were not elected.
We are in for a very rough ride.Obama knows full well the Obamacare Health Bill mandates are unconstitutional. So does the court. I believe a power struggle is now happening behind the scenes between the executive and judical branches of gvernment. The stupified Congress looks on in horror , at a time when they should be censuring the illegitimate presidents comments publicly and legislatively, and convening a military committee to secure the nation and the safety of the Supreme Court, and the independence of the States.
The executive branch of government is now a loose cannon on the deck of the ship of state.Its time for Congress to act
to tie it down.
Have you read The Road To Serfdom?
Those times and these are eerily similar.
” Here in NJ it is very difficult for retirees to keep a home; while the state will freeze their property taxes, they are often already so high it doesnt help much ($6K and up). Right off the bat they have to come up with at least $500 per month for property taxes.”
NJ property taxes are INSANE!
I think he’s pissing off the libs on the court too. After all, they will be there long after he is gone and I would imagine that they value their reputations. Hopefully they see the foolishness and immaturity of BO and don’t want to support him. It will make them look bad to support him.
Nah. Hitler actually worked for a living.
Candor7, I love your comments!
It’s almost like...cowardice.
How else can one explain it?
I don’t see how people can live in states with such high property taxes. Quite a few years ago we were thinking of moving to NH but the prop. taxes there are very high.
Cowardice and greed. Lay low, and get re-elected....no patriotism involved.
” we were thinking of moving to NH but the prop. taxes there are very high.”
40 years ago, people from Massachusetts would move to Nashua, because the taxes were so low. It appears that they wrecked the state.....NH used to be a bastion of conservatism.
Well, the upside is there is no state income tax or sales tax. But the property taxes - woo hoo!!! The sky is the limit. Plus we’re just not used to the east coast.
“It wont! Just more scare tactics to force the USSC to vote obammas way.”
I don’t see anyone, especially a bastard like 0, forcing the SC to do anything.
“NJ property taxes are INSANE!”
They are, but it has had the uninteded consequence of pushing the swing voters to the right.
The arrogant POS/SOB doesn’t care who he pisses off. He ‘thinks’ he is omnipotent. And I’m sure...in his own little mind...
