Dad says 7-2 against mandate 6-3 against bill.
He pointed out a couple of things that Soto did at the time of her confirmation. He doesn’t think she’ll be as liberal as BO wishes she were.

From your Dad’s lips to God’s ear. I listened to both days’ of oral arguments last night. First time listening to SCOTUS. Contrary to many opinions, I had a hopeful impression that Soto might be more “open-minded.”
However, the statements and questions (and timing, i.e., the points of interruption) of Ginsburg and Kagan left me with a hardened impression that they were “politicking” -—Kagan more than Ginsburg.
Not surprising about Kagan. I have nothing good to say about her as a SCOTUS justice, other than that she has a pleasant voice. She does not belong on SCOTUS. She was put there by Obama for one reason, and one reason only. He knew she was a grateful cheerleader and could be psychologically depended on to do his bidding on ObamaCare.
Of course she should have recused herself on ObamaCare, but that was never going to happen (which is why she established personal precedent by recusing herself on the other cases). As far as Obama and she are concerned, she was born to vote in the affirmative for ObamaCare.
In all fairness, she may grow into a good justice, but she never belonged in SCOTUS in the first place.
After last night’s listening to the oral arguments, I feared what Chuckee has prognosticated today, but reading your’s and katieanna’s comments, I am more optimistic. Of course, we know what decision SHOULD be made, but I will be on pins and needles til I hear what decision IS made.
I sure hope your dad is right! This whole thing is so bad I can barely believe this is the USA. The way is was written - or should I say by whom, the way it was passed with all the dirty deals, and the doubling of cost already.
It could barely be worse!
Interesting. What things did she do?
