I believe the mandate at the core of the proposed laws, requiring Americans to purchase health insurance or suffer a penalty shall be struck down. Additionally, I believe that it is possible that the Supreme Court vote against the mandate will be unanimous.
The mandate at the center of this current scheme is its Achilles heel, and this mandate is particularly peculiar in that the concept should be contrary to both strict textualist and progressive liberal ideologies. In essence, requiring a person to buy a service from another person or a private corporation without having first actively chosen to engage in some risky activity, and that the failure to do so would be in violation of a law, is a concept few if any Supreme Court Justices are likely to support.

9-0?! I have my doubts. Kagan and Sont are evil Marxists working directly for the kenyan. Is this to throw us off the trail?
Not good enough. The entire bill should be struck down.
Ginsberg has said they were sharply divided.
Remember too, that the severability clause was REMOVED from the final law, and therefore if the mandate goes down, so should the entire horrid piece of legislation.
Let’s see if the SCOTUS really does their job.
Sorry, but this is wishful thinking of the worst kind. There’s a greater likelihood that SCOTUS would uphold the mandate than vote against it unanimously. Besides, all the people who know these things say that Ginsberg wrote the dissent. If there’s a dissent, it isn’t unanimous.
I agree and said it way before this...It will be a 9-0 strike out.
The individual mandate was inserted into law in order to have a ghost of a chance to fund the great beast that is O’Care.
Without the mandate, the beast becomes a massive contributor to national debt year after year. It must either be killed, or it will kill us all.
Ginsberg has said they were sharply divided....
Just pray this commie witch does not “pass away” until after Obama is gone from the White House. God help us.
Obamacare is not going anywhere ,it will stick around like those burps from a forced meal of kippers
I also think the mandate will be struck down 9-0, but the rest of Obamacare will stand or fall by a 5-4 vote.
Nancy P former Speaker of the House, who has told us that she is a constitutional scholar (just like our Dear Leader) has said that Congress can pass this law and there is no problem with it.
She couldn't be wrong about such things. I mean she told us she knew what she was doing and that Congress needed to pass the law for them and us to find out what was in it. Surely the leaders of the Democratic Party and their flacks knew what they were doing.
If they didn't then....what else might they have not gotten right.....
A 9-0 unanimous vote would be make it interesting for the Dem leadership to explain. I doubt that they could spin this as George Bush appointed Neo-con judges destroying the will of the people, like they were planning.
All leftwingtards of all kinds PREFER fascist methods.
From their keyboard to God’s ears.
The decision to allow the AZ police to check the immigration status of anyone who comes in contact with the law, was unanimous. The rest of the law recieved different levels of dissent. Scalia, supported letting the whole law stand.
For almost 80 years we have been saddled with the failed Keynesian Economic System. It has bankrupted the US Federal Government.
The derivatives of the WW2 Wage and Price Control Dictates are as follows: Medicare, Medicaid, Romneycare and Obamacare.
All of these vote-buying gimmicks are funded by debt created by the failed Keynesian Economic System.
Currently this Debt is charged to those who cannot vote: our Grandchildrens future descendants.
There will be additional calls for State Constitutional Conventions if the Republicans try to preserve or retain ANY of Obama or Romneycare.
Obamacare is the Death Knell for America. It must be ABOLISHED FOREVER if America is to survive.
If Obamacare does survive, then I favor Regional Areas of the former United States of America. I think the States that the XL Pipeline will run through makes excellent sense for one Region, called The Texas Region. The Mississippi Region would be those States that the Mississippi River runs through. Pacific and Atlantic Regions are obvious, as are the Rocky Mountain States.
In this way people could vote with their feet and move to a greater or lesser degree of personal Liberty.
The Great Experiment of forcing the United States of America back into the European Feudal System began with FDRs Social Security System and will end with Obamacare.
No need for armed conflict, as we have already tried that with our bloody Civil War.
Just hold State Constitutional Conventions, split up the former USA into multi State Regions, and hold Fourth of July Remember When Days once a year, as we thank our lucky Stars that we in NO WAY are like Europe.
Although unlikely they can be impeached.
If SCOTUS upholds 0bamacare but strikes the Mandate they are WRITING LAW not ruling on the law because they’ll be adding a severability clause. Anything other than a total strike down is unacceptable because the Mandate is absolutely unconstitutional.
