If it isn’t, it will be the worst decision since Dred Scott.
There is a short window, they are ending their session soon.
Yep I remember the CFR debacle
Barring fraud, even the election SHOULD be in the bag at this point. By almost any measure in use for the history of the republic, this president is an abject failure. Why it isn’t being said put loud as it would be with any other human being with his record, I’m not sure.
That's not the way I read it.
HERE is a link to a PDF version of the calendar (June 2012 is the last page of the file) and I don't see anything that would preclude decisions being released all week long and particularly on Monday or Thursday based on SC tradition.
It may be slightly nuanced but there will be no mistaking what he says. He will say this is why he needs four more years,that his work is incomplete and whatever else pops into his feeble mind.
I agree. I have to ask myself, what happens if the mandate is upheld?
Seriously. Think it through. I mean people’s reactions as well as the impact on our country, mid-term. There is no “long term” no matter how they rule so I don’t care about that.
The problem with the mandate is that the cost and penalty only applies to middle class working people and up.
and whatever else pops into his feeble mindAnd don't forget: whatever pops up on his teleprompter.
I agree — Intrade rates the chances of overturn at 74% this AM — down from 78%. My own estimate of the chance of overturn is 51%. I’m slightly biased towards overturn but just slightly. Overturn is definitely not in the bag IMO, and if just the mandate is overturned, Obamacare morphs into a monster of a completely different nature.

SKIN COLOR! As biased as the media is, they would be ripping into a white president, democrat or Republican, for the mess the country is in right now. But obama is black. As the first black president, the left sees him as too big to fail. As the first black president, he must be viewed as a great success, not a failure. Thats why there is very little, if any, criticism of him from the left for keeping Gitmo open, for keeping renditions going, for having kill lists, for killing US citizens without a trial.
No. The Individual Mandate also says that the Federal Government to check everybody's bank accounts to see if you are co-operating with the mandate. To that end thousands of IRS agents were hired to look at your bank transactions to see if you have purchased health insurance.
Next they will be asking if it is insurance up to the Federal Governments standards. And the answer to that for the majority of us will be No.
Currently that standard seems to include Free Contraception, the coverage of abortion and sterilizations.
You do realize that your health coverage is in the hands of Kathleen Sebelius under the ACA Mandate? And that she can rule whether you get treatments or not and rule what will be covered and what will not be?
The Despots are here and ruling already.
I won’t hold my breath for an announcement today. Or even this week. They can put it off for as long as they want to. And I have a bad hunch that when they do announce it, we aren’t going to like it.
based on what??
If just the mandate is killed, that kills the insurance industry and paves the way for single payer commie care.
If the RATS hold either half of Congress or the POTUS, they could block any bill to overturn the rest of the law.
Either it is today or towards Thursday or Friday.
I just got back from daily mass, if my memory is correct, the AZ law will be upheild, the other three struck down.
The old mss will be for a very rude awakening come this November.
