The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday accepted an Obamacare law appeal over contraception coverage.

5-4 that Ann Dunham should have used some.
My guess ..Roberts is soooo embarrassed that he’ll vote unconstitutional at ANY chance .no matter how thin.
Let me guess...it’s really just a “tax.”
Two cases, one of them is Hobby Lobby.
Please tell me that there’s a lawsuit challenging one of the most expensive aspects of the ObamaCare laws, that of requiring maternity and pre-natal care on all insurance policies..
Ok....since their is no sever ability, does SCOTUS actually have a chance to strike the whole law down? I know I’m getting my hopes up. Just askin’
Oh, one of those rascals will find severability, and rename it.
dang Ipad auto correct.
I think there unfortunately is precedent for a law without a severability clause being allowed to stand even after a portion of it was overturned. However, I don’t know the details, and possibly it was an entirely different situation.
This whole law is probably riddled with technical flaws, since it was inserted in the shell of a perfectly innocuous, short bill sent up by Congress (requesting something like an extension of some VA or military benefit, IIRC). The earlier language of the bill, except for the preamble, was simply removed and the Dems stuffed 2000 incoherent pages of garbage into it and passed it. On Christmas Eve. Hard to believe that’s legal, but it is.
Chief Injustice Roberts will call a “Mulligan” on ObamaCare.
Please, I’m just having my morning coffee!
Last time was a slam dunk but ol Roberts changed it to a tax. I don’t trust anything that guy does at this point.
This is out there, I know, but maybe Democrats will apply pressure for a finding for the appellants, then use the severability clause as an excuse to kill the law that is killing their party. They could go back to using the lack of socialized medicine as a campaign issue.
Like Johnny Cash said....”One Piece At A Time”.
Do you trust this man after he already screwed us once?
>Do you trust this man after he already screwed us once?
Isn’t this why we need abortion?
“...Roberts is soooo embarrassed that hell vote unconstitutional at ANY chance .no matter how thin.”
I just saw this news over at Ace of Spades HQ. Ace thinks like you do, although he’s less optimistic. He calls it his “dream” rather than a guess.
He also says that these conscience cases are about contraception which is so cheap as to be trivial; but isn’t it also about abortion and perhaps other issues?
“They could go back to using the lack of socialized medicine as a campaign issue.”
Oh how they must long for those days.
Obama was so much worse than I ever imagined he could be; but this law is indescribably, incalculably worse than I ever imagined.
