"Legislatively we can't do a thing, and we are going to move full speed ahead (with implementation).
-- A Democratic congressional official talking to the Associated Press about plans in the Obama administration to proceed with the presidents 2010 health law even if the Supreme Court strikes down its central provision requiring all Americans to either purchase insurance or be enrolled in a government program.
The looming Supreme Court decision on President Obamas 2010 health law has Washington in a state of high anxiety.

I have no anxiety. I have anticipation it is dead.
Republicans have to be ready to cut all associated funding immediately including the IRS money for obamacare.
Quite probably. However, if they rule that it is severable, their heads may be heard exploding all the way to California.
In this article, published last October, I suggested that
For the Supreme Court to agree with the Eleventh Circuit that the mandate is unconstitutional and to allow the rest of the law to remain standing would be the worst possible outcome for President Obama. That is what all judges who have found the individual mandate unconstitutional have done, with one exception.With that result, ObamaCare would resemble an ObamaCare patient, sick and dying but unable to get nourishment. The Dems have no viable solution to offer, because there is none. That result would revive ObamaCare as a campaign issue to a far greater extent than would a Supreme Court decision killing it outright.
Although for other reasons I would prefer to see ObamaCare killed outright, for defeating President Obama the mandate amputation procedure would be superior.
It is way past time for a revolution! its either take back America and force the “public servants” to abide by our constitution or kiss our arses goodbye.
True, and if I recall correctly, SCOTUS scrutinized the problem of interdependence at the hearing. They definitely had that on their radar.
That kid is a dork. Laboratory studies show that Romney is exactly the same as the fecal matter this child will produce if the Great Obama is re-elected.
I hope the do rule that it's not severable. IIRC, The Senate explicitly removed the severability clause from the House bill.
To rule otherwise would be judicial activism.
PLEASE DON'T THROW AMERICA AWAY.
During oral arguments, didn't they ask that if the Congress wasn't willing to read the bill before voting on it, then why expect the Court to read it?
Sounds to me like they strike it all, especially if severability was purposely removed.
There is a difference between no severability, and severability sent from the House but removed by vote in the Senate.
That's an express intent of no on severability.
We are so screwed....
The issue upon which this case hangs is what Scottish Law says about it.
As I recall they had to leave it as was because in the interim of House and Senate sending it back and forth, Scott Brown had gotten elected to the Senate. Unless it was agreed upon as it already was they would have had to vote again and by then they didn’t have the votes...something along those lines? It was a mess.
Yes it was, they wanted the whole enchalata. They wanted no wiggle room or weaseling out of it, It was so complex, and intertwined in it's control they wanted no chance of any American not under it's control and they knew it would fall apart if it did.
Even with Dingell who wanted this for 50 years and put severability in the House Bill in a couple of spots, it still was removed.
It will be a double moment of Shadenfruede for me if it struck down, no love loss here for Dingell ( long story ) and also it was first reported on of the lack of Serverability in "The American Thinker".
I told an Uber Liberal Attorney former Labor Organzier for Chavez friend about the article and he said Na, it will never fall because of this.
Oh am I gonna rub it in...
That kid is a dork.
He’s a cute little kid.
What happens if the court strikes most of it down and Obama tries to implement it by Executive Order or interpretation of regulations?
I hope the Supreme Court strikes it down. I’m relatively poor, too, BTW. The medical, insurance and big pharmaceutical rackets need to be busted. The answer is to bring costs and salaries down. We’re not going to live forever, even if we were to spend most of our production on that. For the time being, most of the money spent on it is debt (debt regime).
The best way is preventive exercise, rest, etc.
What movie is the death car / pirate car from?
