Does anyone know what time the House is voting on the Holder contempt charge?

If Democrats are planning to walk out in protest, I would guess it will be later in the day to maximize the media attention. If the SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare is revealed today, they may even postpone the vote.

POTUS will be there to intimidate the justices.

He already knows he won, or he would not be there. It would be too embarrassing.

Basically what I was thinking. This guy only goes where he can soak up victories. He does not handle failure well at all. The best thing about this election cycle, I hope, will be watching him try to deal with others accusing him of failure.

Romney did not say he would ‘replace it with his plan.’

Please don’t tell false things about Romney.

He said firmly that he would immediately work to get rid of Obamacare.

About 15-20 minutes for the healthcare ruling.

Remember, there are two other cases that will probably be announced first.

it’s like waiting for the results of medical tests...maybe worse.

Waiting for results after you've been coughing up blood or found a major lump somewhere ..... you know it's bad, just not HOW bad or if it's going to be terminal. If SCOTUS upholds, considering all of the ramifications (financial, personal freedom, etc.) I think it will be terminal for America & we're going to have to burn it to the ground to kill the Obamacare malignancy and (maybe) rise back out of the ashes.

I cannot understand why polls say that most people want the part of the bill that lets ‘children’ stay on their parents plan until age 26.

How ridiculous can you get??

Why not announce as soon as the two positions — the ruling and the dissent — are written up?

Because the opinions are circulated among the justices as they are prepared and, reportedly, sometimes revised to attract a convergence of opinion. The decision is not a "vote" - there is an initial vote but positions can (and sometimes do) change as opinions are circulated and debated.

Obviously Scalia's dissent had been revised between June 15 and its release, as it referenced the Obama non-deport order.

Your words struck me. If this obamanation is upheld, those of us waiting for the results of medical tests will be waiting for our death sentence. No hope and no change.

The court will convene at 10am. Then they will be in session, and one judge will read a summary of one ruling and another judge another ruling. ObamaCare will probably be last, because the room will get noisy after that.

Thus is not advocating individual lawlessness, but

The lawlessness is in the existing government, all three branches.

Again, do we have enough people with righteous anger and courage to stand up against this?

No. Perhaps after a catastrophic event and a period of years of state-of-nature savagery, a useful number of righteous and brave individuals will rise out of the ashes. But right now we have virtually nothing but submitters, tolerators, enablers, collaborators...sheeple.

In Alvarez, the Ninth Circuit is affirmed. Per Kennedy. His opinion is for a plurality.

The statute violates the First Amendment. Breyer and Kagan concur and conclude that the Act as presently drafted fails First Amendment scrutiny. So Congress probably could rewrite it.
