Obamacare……..what do you think? June 27, 2012

What do you think the Supreme Court will decide regarding Obamacare?  In reality, the decision was made months ago, we just get the announcement tomorrow.  But what do you think…….completely struck down, just the mandate, just the Medicare changes,just bits and pieces deleted leaving most intact, punt, or endorsement?  I don’t think the latter……I think it’s either the mandate goes down with reference to abuse of the commerce clause (in which case, goodbye liberalism), or a way is found to strike it down without reference to the commerce clause, leaving the liberal agenda woozy but alive.

I’m always ranting at you good people, this time, tell me what you think.  I’m open to almost any interpretation, but I think it gets struck down in some way.  If it doesn’t, well, it will just be the 4,085th nail in the constitutional coffin.  But one of the largest.

After watching the illegal immigration fiasco, I suspect that Obamacare will get the bits & pieces treatment. I suspect that the individual mandate will be struck down and perhaps the section mandating religious institutions to kick-in. However, if that is the case, this administration will continue to implement their socialist goal with executive orders.

p.s. Chief Justice Roberts may well have done Arizona a favor when he shifted sides. How many Americans know that a 4 to 4 tie in the Supreme Court would have thrown this back to the appeals court and the entire law would have been struck down. That’s the way it works. Remember, that an extreme, liberal-left justice recused herself. That meant that the decision was among the 8 justices. If Roberts had held out, the entire Arizona law would have been struck down.

I think Obambicare goes down 5-4 with “bits and pieces” (h/t irishsmile) upheld.

Just an opinion, I know. Which means absolutely nothing.
