Roberts already made it crystal clear that he will uphold Obamacare based on politics, not law. Unless he has somehow changed his mind in the interim, this is a waste of time.
it’s getting clearer by the day that it’s just a question of time before the SHTF and the people will take back DC. Once that happens it would do to amend the Constitution so all elected officials can not exclude themselves from any laws they pass. They get no special treatment or perks in any way, period. All newly proposed legislation before voted upon would have to first pass Constitutional scrutiny.
Duh!!! That’s why Roberts let it pass. That’s how it is supposed to work
I do not trust this Supreme Court to rule the right way a second time, considering they blew it the first time.
Prediction: John Roberts will decide to rule that for purposes of this bill the Senate is actually the House.
As I recall, this was discussed earlier and the Senate took an existing House effort and turned it into Obama Care. It did originate in the House as I recall
Surely you don’t expect the Supreme Court to actually uphold the language and intent of the Constitution??!!!
Roberts has already proven that to be nonsense!
Only if the Supreme Court actually reads the Constitution.
The Republican leadership are so F-ing stupid!
This “technicality” is simply the law, and it’s been evident since the Supreme Court ruling.
Few noticed it because they were busy pitching fits instead of thinking.
By defining healthcare “penalties” as taxes, the Court rightly handed the issue back to Congress, which has the Constitutional power both to tax and to repeal taxes.
Read Roberts’ opinion. He basically said that it’s not the job of the Court to legislate or to undo legislators’ boneheaded laws. Not in those words, but that’s what he said.
Congress got us in this mess; we need to pressure them to get us out of it.
We have 4 members on the court who will vote to do the right thing, the thugs now have 5. Its basic math even 7 year old can understand.
