"And the Republicans in D.C.(as they have done, over the past 3 1/2 years,) will do NOTHING to stop them!!"

Not precisely true. The House voted to repeal it. Need to keep the House, take the Senate and presidency to finish it off - or what's left of it after the Supremes decision.

I’m beginning to think they will lose this fight.

My prayers are being answered - not just the Walker victory but personal stuff too (that seemed impossible) - and I've been praying about this a lot so I'm starting to thank God in advance for victory over unconstitutional commie-care.

Kathleen Sebelius

“Sebelius” is Communist for “Traitor”

A report last week said Obama has privately expressed concerns he could have to revisit healthcare issues in a second term — an attitude that contradicts the confidence he’s expressed publicly that the court will rule in the law’s favor.
Obama is pretty confident of winning a second term. That would be as bad as the health care law or worse !

I get the feeling they might not do it that way this time.

Try to avoid any political leanings.

Yep. They are going to try and pretend the ruling does not change anything.

But that ham handed finger in the Court’s and congress’ eyes will be front and center and seven out of ten voters want that program all or partially scrapped.

Unfortunately, it can’t be Romneycare Myth who will be able to talk much about it and neither of the Republican leaders seem to have voice boxes.

And, if I am 83 years old and need a new heart???????????

You don't have to be nearing some arbitrary expiration date to be feeling the effects of obamacare. Every year since this abomination has passed, premiums at my company have gone up and our coverage cut. Right now we're on a plan with such high deductibles that people have to save all year for anything more than wellness visits. I guess it's too expensive to actually make coverage available for everyone, so they're working to cut everyone back to where the uninsured were to begin with, only they're forcing us to pay their insurance cronies for the privilege.

That’s not coverage you “need”, that’s coverage you “want”. You just have to trust our betters in DC, to decide what you need.

IF that happens, then the country is saved, because that means we have people with some horse sense. If it comes down to a 5 to 4 vote, then Romney damn well better pick the right people on the court as he’ll probably have the chance.

I’m hoping for a 6 to 3.

My guess:
6-3 to shut down the mandatory payment clause;
5-4 to ignore the lack of a severability clause. Hope I'm wrong, but I believe the Supremes have done it before.

If 5-4 for Obamacare to remain in place, watch new lawsuits come out of the woodwork about the 1000 plus waivers already in place. Think equal protection under the law. I'm surprised such suits haven't surfaced yet, but I guess everyone is waiting on this decision.

Without the additional funding of the individual mandate requirement which is the foundation of Obamacare for financial viability, how can the rest survive? Would it not be an empty shell that the States and companies and individuals could just ignore? What's Holder going to do? Arrest all of us? Can the IRS withhold millions of tax returns or carry through with a penalty that runs contrary to a USSC decision? I doubt it and no one will stand for that.

My problem is with all the bureaucratic agencies and jobs already in place. Somehow, someone, will change the names of the agencies and job descriptions to allow those Fedgov employees to remain in place.

Once an agency exists, it never goes away. They need only to change the names to something like The Bureau of Healthcare Reform or some such nonsense with sub-groupings such as Bureau of Healthcare Statistics and be redundant with other HHS agencies. Sure Sebelius/Obama will find a way to keep those suck-up jobs and Congress won't have the nerve to eliminate them since the Dims will cry "it's for the wimmins and chillens".

I don’t know if I’ve ever experienced a supreme court decision that would give me such relief... this is the main disaster of this regime... we could absorb all the giveaways, the stimulus, the tarp, but trying to untangle this turkey will be a mess like no other. Please, GOD, we don’t deserve it but please guide this court to sever it, root and branch. Amen.

They thought their guy was going to beat Walker too. And the contingency was to slap the guy in the face.

It still amazes me that they are trying to now promote this as a “most important” women’s health issue! What about “keep your laws off my body”? Have these “progressives”, and “feminists” forgotten that quickly? Who is/was lying? You can’t have it both ways... You either keep the gov’t OUT of private medical decisions, or you open yourself up to the gov’t controlling ALL of your medical decisions. It will no longer be “your body”, it WILL be the “Government’s Property”, and you better believe there will eventually be fines for ANYTHING they deem to be “bad for your health” whether it is or not. Mandatory vaccinations, no matter for what, or what your religious/moral beliefs, etc... Insanity in its highest form.

I’d really like to hear what these “contingencies” they have planned are...

“Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said she is “confident and optimistic” that the high court will uphold the law, but added “we’ll be ready for contingencies” if it does not.”

Yeh ready to subvert the legal decision of the highest court in the land.

After Nov Kathleen will be packing up along with her muzzie lovin commie boss.

“Whatever the circumstances … care will be there. Affordable prices will be there. Coverage will be there that you need.”>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Looks like the Obama fascists are planning to disregard the ruling if SCOTUS strikes the law. That will set the stage for some very serious conflict, under which fascists supposedly flourish, but the Obama fascists underestimate the American people and their defence of the Constitution.

Oh yes, make no mistake, Obama and his supporters are fascists , good read:

After all these years of fighting for so-called equal rights, the main point Sebelius can make is that women need a law that gives them peace of mind.

And men become unpersons. Identity politics in the raw.

Yeah, citing Andrew Jackson as precedent: "Chief Justice Marshall has made his decision. Now let him enforce it."

And promptly initiated the Trail of Tears.

But that will be a very bold posture on Barky's part, with only Dingy Harry Reid and six months between him and impeachment.

I don't know why John Boehner is restraining the House from impeaching AG Eric "Superior Knowledge" Holder. They should have impeached four months ago, so the Dims would be spending their time right now, defending Holder in the Senate with the public looking down their throats.

I swear, it's because the RNC wants Obama returned to office so he can finish Obamacare .... and take the heat for it, while private employers dump their healthcare plans (which was the whole idea in the first place, from the GOP side).

It’s getting to the point where there are just way too many Whitehouse officials to impeach in one session of congress, but then that was probably Zero’s plan from the beginning.
