    Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton of the 6th Circuit court of appeals reached a similar conclusion in his review of the ACA as did the majority in the current case:

    Like Judge Sutton, Judge Silberman expresses a fundamental conservative judicial tenet: that issues such as the ACA are best addressed by the legislative, not judicial, branch. The will of the people through their elected officials should be paramount, and their will via Congress not discarded accordingly.

    In Lopez, and later in Morrison, the Court held that acts of Congress should be considered Constitutional until such time a court says they’re not.

    Even Justice Scalia has remarked that the people shouldn’t go running to the courts every time a legislative issue doesn’t go their way, that the issue should be addressed by elected officials.

    And in the Thomas More Law Center case, Judge Sutton noted that just because a law is ‘bad’ doesn’t mean it’s un-Constitutional.

    All of this makes it extremely unlikely that the Court will strike down the ACA, given the opinions of clearly conservative judges.

    The government has no authority to force me to buy something I do not want. If that's the case then they also have the authority to force people to buy guns.

    Bullshit! There WAS no debate! It wasn't even PASSED it was DEEMED!

    When
    Nancy Pelosi was asked if it was Constitutional she didn't even have an answer!: "You're kidding right?"

    Other than the series of committee hearings on the health reform provisions that began in 2008, the presidential election in which health care reform was a prominent issue, the eight months of legislative process (including five committee markups and floor debates in each chamber), and the national debate outside of the halls of Congress, sure. No debate.

    No, it wasn't deemed.

    Nice! So when you sick ars goes to the emergency room suffering from a stroke, if you don't have insurance, rather than spend my tax dollars on you, you need to die. No insurance, no tax dollars to save you...Then you should be put in a taxi and sent home.

    WORKS FOR ME!

    I will do like I have always done take care of myself or if I have to go to the emergency room pay for it myself. Like when my second wife had a miscarriage and had to spend time in the hospital. I set up a payment plan and paid for it. Something you seem clueless about.
