“An Obama administration lawyer, urging caution, said it would be “extraordinary” for the court to throw out the entire law. About 2.5 million young people under age 26 are on their parents’ insurance now because of the new law. If it were struck down entirely, “2.5 million of them would be thrown off the insurance rolls,” said Edwin Kneedler.”
So I guess the Constitution should not matter since we have already done something not allowed by it. /s
The same logic could be used to try to justify letting someone who unknowingly received stolen property keep it, because they now depend upon it in some way. The liberal justices, in furthering this line of thinking, have really shown themselves to be the Constitution-hating legislator-wannabe's that we've always known that they were. You expect this from the Administration itself. They're just distorting and lying to get what they want. But a Supreme Court justice should at least be capable of putting together a semi-coherent argument that at least has some shred of appearance of being rooted in the Constitution. But the lib justices pleas to salvage parts of the law or to rework it display an incredible incompetence in addition to their obvious bias. They really should be impeached for such a bold demonstration of Constitutional contempt.
That was always the plan. Bribe the Senate, bullsteer the House, then blackmail the Supreme Court into passing the whole thing "for the children".
That's why Obozo bitch-slapped the Justices at the SOTU. He was letting them know, "I'll come after you if you screw with my legislation." That's right out of Julius Caesar's playbook.
We'll see if it works.
