The odds spiked into the 60-percent range after March's oral arguments were deemed a disaster for President Barack Obama and his signature piece of legislation. The only time it had climbed over 50 percent was in December, when the Supreme Court decided it would hear the case.

Intrade has been an inaccurate predictor before. For example, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry were, at one point, better bets than Mitt Romney to win the Republican nomination.

If it does get voted down, I will expect to see obama’s intrade numbers head for the bottom of the deep blue sea.

As my mom used to say “Don’t count your chickens before there are hatched.” Roberts scares me - he is not a reliable vote for strict constitutionalism - maybe another “swinger”? Or he is allowing politics to cloud his decision?

I wouldn’t be surprised Clinton give a friendly call to Ms. Ruth and told her to help screw over O on this one.

Good point. I believe we’ll see the clintonistas voting to strike down obamacare.

When Roberts sides with Federal pre-emption on immigration, then I’m not so sure

Yep, he is showing all the signs of being a squish who hides behind caring about the “legitimacy” of the Court than rendering decisions which may be upopular in the DC cocktail set but are, nonetheless, well rooted in the Constitution.
