Skip to comments.How will Supreme Court rule on health care law? (Obama to speak soon after opinion comes down)

[Updated at 9:03 a.m. ET] President Obama will be reacting to the Supreme Court's ruling on the health care bill shortly after an opinion comes down, CNN has learned.
[Updated at 9:00 a.m. ET] We're about an hour from the big ruling and CNN's Supreme Court Producer Bill Mears notes it is a crazed atmosphere in the press room at the Supreme Court this morning.
There's about three dozen live cameras outside and a dozen more other cameras around the building, Mears said. And there are about at least 100 people in line to hear the oral arguments but only 50 to 75 seats available. Not everybody who wants to witness history will get a chance today.

Smart money says that zer0bummer already KNOWS the outcome and is well prepared.(think Kagan, Sotomayor....zer0’s Stooges)
Hopefully one of our guys have informed top Republicans the outcome so they can counterpoint right away...
wonder if they will delay it again.
Regardless of what the ruling is, the “media” will spin it as a “Huge victory for Obama.”
Everyone waits on bated breath to see if the U.S.Supreme Court will dump ObabaCare and thus support the Constitution and the U.S. continuing as a land of freedom, or if it will re-enact the Dredd/Scott Decision and make the citizens into slaves.
I hope they strike the whole thing. It wasn’t even read before the vote. Pelosi said we had to wait. Disgusting hag.
As for obama, he is going to come out and say he is going to ignore the ruling. Republicans are going to get the blame. Witch hunt, ruin his re-election, blah, blah.
I hope the whole monstrosity is thrown out and Obama has a very public petulant hissy fit. KMA BHO!
I do believe this is the last day of session before recess
they can only pospone till later in the day.
Obama will seek to diminish the SCOTUS decision in public, alleging the decison to be undemocratic , since the Obama Congress passed it ( without one Republican vote, mind you)
and “democracy must prevail.
This is wrong. We are not a “democracy” we are a Republic,and we will not be ruled by a mob of nationalist socialists.
A constitutional crisis is about to be created, and Obama, I hope, will be clapped in irons.
I guess it all depends on that old “Reaganite” (actually a Ford man) Anthony Kennedy in the final analysis.
Let’s hope that Obama quits over the Supreme decision.
He knows the ruling and I want to know exactly how.
Without even reading the opinion Obama has already prepared his speech. Or rather his Teleprompter has been uploaded with whatever the Teleprompter thinks he should say.
Wouldn't it be nice if he could give the illusion of reading the opinion, understanding its arguments, digesting the conclusion, and then speaking on it?
He’ll probably just issue an executive order dissolving the Supreme Court.
Hope Hillary sends him a letter of condolence!! Obamacare passing was just another way of Obama stabbing her in the back.
Quite a heavy load there Zer0.
they can only pospone till later in the day.
Actually, the last day of the session was earlier this week, on Monday. Today is an additional-day to the term, for the purpose of reading what they could not get done during the official term (ending on 6/25).
Is there a live thread for this ?
Read the above (#3, Vaquero): Sotomayer and Kagan have already relayed most of the salient points of the opinion to the Oval Cubicle in the White Hut. The gnomes in the basement have been working on ways to spin this outcome, no matter WHAT it turns out to be, so it is all basically Bush’s fault, and the Republicans HAVE to be on the losing side of this issue.
Well, when you put it like that... good point :)
Actual I’d rather see him blame it on a Racist Supreme Court, gnash his teeth and claim Executive Privilege again as to his reasons for his plans to appeal their decision to the UN Security Council and the World Court at the Hague.
I should have added that, yes, it would be nice if the President actually had read the bill and the Constitution and could make a rational argument, but we already know what Obama thinks of the Constitution—what most liberals think of the Constitution.
Whatever happens, dems will claim it as a ‘win. They’re such liars - lucky for them the MSM will buy anything that drops from their mouths.
Well, now we know.
