    Don't get too happy, he is predicting a political decision rather than a legal decision.

    I have faith in the Supreme Court. I'm sure they will come out with a ruling that says the ObamaCare crap is unConstitutional.

    The supreme court will declare this monstrocity constitutional. Which will pave the way for even more absurd mandates going forward. Congrats on ruiining liberty.

    Swing vote Kennedy is pissing all over the individual mandate.

    We've heard nothing but opinions so far, and you know what they say about opinions.

    It's odd, because if Obamacare is found constitutional the harm it will cause to the Nation will be untold. The division that will occur will be on a level I don't think we have seen since the civil war. Obamacare is clearly unconstitutional and is a massive Government power grab. People had hope that Obamacare would be ruled out by the SC but if that does not happen the "hope" is gone and it turns into something else, true division.

    Bush was a horrid President and did way more than his fair share when it came to dividing this country, but to have Obama step in after Bush and continue and expand upon that destructive division might prove to be a politically unfixable problem going forward.

    SS/MC/MC/Welfare/Subsidies/Obamacare, Government will literally never have enough to produce what they promised. Even if you eliminated the entire 700 billion from Defense we are already lost in debt. The fact that these programs ask for more money every single year, not less when we already can’t afford them is testament to those that predicted these programs will never work nor have the ever worked in the long run. The cost for Obamacare has already increased dramatically and it has not even gone into full effect, you think some would get a clue.

    There's really only 9 opinions that matter.

    You don't seem to understand what is going on. The Leftists in America WANT the division of which you speak.

    Of course we don't know how this will play out, but here is the remark from Kennedy, which is the core supporting objection of conservatives:

    'Even before the administration's top lawyer could get three minutes into his defense of the mandate, some justices accused the government of pushing for excessive authority to require Americans to buy anything.

    "Are there any limits," asked Justice Anthony Kennedy, one of three conservative justices whose votes are seen as crucial to the fate of the unprecedented insurance mandate.'
