We could still be in for a real surprising, sneak attack Pearl Harbor-style that would knock the wind out of us in June. They could say it looks like SCOTUS are going to strike down GoebbelsCare, and then they fool us at the last moment. One of the lib Justices could be letting on Sun Tzu like, that they are opposed, blah blah blah, just for the sake of showing an "open judicial mind", and then vote to upheld as the fix would already be in, such as with Elena Kagan, who should be recused. The Fat Lady has not sung yet. Fallback plan: We MUST elect a solid GOP Senate and Congress to then eviscerate this legislation so that it is essentially dead on arrive come 2014. Stay the course. Pray. Keep sober and don't pop the champagne just yet. These libs don't go defeated into the cold, dark night that easily.

GREAT JOB OBAMA!

Apparently you are one of the many Americans who think this clown playing President is an incompetent idiot. To figure out the real answer, let me give you a hint.

His middle name is Hussein. Get it now? He couldn't be that stupid, it's impossible. Hussein is destroying America on purpose. Maybe you can now figure out the rest of the his story.

No, I have said many times Obama is calculating,manipulative,possibly one of the biggest liers in the known Universe,a radical marxist usurper whose mind is made up of radical marxist usurpery mind rot.
I first started to get a clue when Ted Kennedy publicly embrassed this mealy mouthed weasel.
Otherwise,I would have never voted for Gramps in 2008.
That is why I will not vote for Romney this time around. I still have that creepy feeling that I compromised my priciples to much to vote for McLameO.
Like others the only way I could even bring myself to vote for him is Palin.
In hindsight, wonder how many people, now that Obama has “served” nearly a full term as Present-ident , think maybe Palin would not have been to bad???

I think 99 percent of the folks on this site could have told these Jack Wagons that this law was a train wreck.

The funny thing is, like the Congress that passed the law, I didn't read the bill and I could have told them it was a train wreck.

But nobody listens to me...geesh

Thanks for listening,

Even worse than the terrible job the president’s SG did, were certain supreme court justices actually trying to assist the helpless clown with his arguments.

There was not even a SHOW of impartiality on the parts of at least two of the four leftist wing-nuts on the court.

I think that the SC will vote:

9-0 to allow the case to continue
7-2 that the individual mandate is unconstitutional
5-4 that the law cannot be severed and thus is toast

My premise is that two lib judges will see the light on the commerce clause issue, but hold tight on the severability issue.

Watch. If it is overturned, the Administration will claim that its a narrow interpretation and proceed as planned.

At that point, passive resistance and noncompliance is the answer.

You don’t need to be a supreme court justice to know the constitution does not give the federal government the authority to FORCE anyone to purchase a good or service simply because they are breathing.

Its an assinine argument to try to make, and its abjectly shameful that I any Justice would vote for it, but we all know that the leftists on the court will, because the constitution is irrellevant to them.

“Without the individual mandate, if they enforce the rest of ObamaCare, the health insurance industry will not collapse, nor will it implode. It will evaporate. Gone in thirty seconds.”

That's why eliminating only the individual mandate will be, at best, a Pyrrhic victory. If the federal government can require insurance companies to cover various expenditures (contraception, wellness visits, mammograms, PSA tests, etc.) with no co-pays or deductibles and individuals can select out of the insurance pool, then either insurance premiums for those who remain in the pool will go through the roof or the companies will stop writing policies. In either case, the federal government will have an “excuse” to move in and “rescue” the health insurance system at taxpayers’ expense by expanding Medicare/medicare to cover everybody.

“Mittens could close out Bobo then and there by having a speech ready in which he admits Romneycare was flawed/Obamacare was unconstitutional and Congress must repeal/properly, the states are incubators, not the fed/how do we properly engage the real problem, extending care to the 24 mill who don't have it-won’t get it-too stupid to care, and are clogging up our emergency rooms for the rest of us.”

This argument has been there for the taking by Romney for months now. The only reason he hasn't pursued it is that he is afraid to admit he made a big mistake while Gov. of MA. The “states as incubators” argument was used in the 1990s to develop the consensus around welfare reform. Some states’ experiments worked, and others didn't. There was no shame in having tried policies at the individual state level that didn't perform as expected. It happens in many states with various issues all the time.

As am I...no telling what Obama is plotting and I am not that comfortable with the SCOTUS. However, the news is truly looking good.

“The only thing better than getting Obamacare declared unconstitutional... the knowledge that the Democrats threw away their majority... for nothing ! ROFl”

They gave their supporters more a trillion dollars, instituted repressive regulations of our financial markets, and desecrated our military with the open inclusion of people with at odds sexual orientations to quarter with our troops.

I’m wondering... Do you think Obama and the Dems would be brazen enough to still carry through with implementing Obamacare, mandate and all, if the Supreme Court were to strike it down. If Obama and the Department of Justice decided to take a defiant “well, we’re going to do it anyway, so try and stop us” position, what would happen?

The Republican RINO’s would have just given the money to their supporters instead, so that’s a wash.

The financial regulations will be repealed.

And DADT can be reinstated by the next Republican president too.

Like I said the Democrats threw all their power away for nothing.
