  • Yes, if you believe in an omnipotent Federal Government, i.e. a douche rocket Democrat.

  • Remember the browbeating Obama gave Chief Justice Roberts?

    Paybacks are a bitch!

  • I wouldn't be so quick to cherry pick excerpts from these proceedings in an effort to predict a winner just yet. Some tough questions were given to both sides from both Liberal and Conservative justices.

    • @picklethepug I listened to the whole dame thing. Please do the same and then tell me what tough questions for Obamacare did the Liberal side justices give? It's going to be 5-4 with Kennedy the deciding vote. He’s been the fifth vote for a conservative majority on several landmark cases finding limitations on federal power.

    • @flashj2 I did listen to it. If you understand legal questioning and how constitutional questions are approached, you'd have a better idea of the subtleties of their words, especially Kennedy. On the surface he said many things that would leave you to believe he's going to vote against it, but he said a few things that really left me wondering. But like I said, you could be right. I'm just personally a bit more hesitant to make any predictions right now. Theres been similar "grilling" More..

    • @picklethepug It really boils down to can the government force people into commerce and if they can, there is no limit on its power to do so. Even Sotomayor argued that point.

    • @flashj2 precisely my point about how it could go either way. And the question isn't whether or not the government can force people into commerce, the question will come down to whether or not everyone is a healthcare consumer regardless of whether or not they have insurance coverage. The "broccoli argument" is bogus because hospitals don't end up giving away billions of dollars in broccoli every year to people who wont buy it then charging me to make up the difference.

    • @picklethepug The broccoli argument is a red herring. What I mean is exactly what I wrote. Obamacare mandate is aimed at people who aren't participating in commerce, i.e. people without insurance. So basically Congress is creating commerce to regulate and that is not in the enumerated powers..
