    Of course, we all knew this was going to be their ruling. Two of the three judges were Obama appointees. It will now be appealed to the Supreme Court where it will be struck down as unconstitutional by a 5-4 decision, I predict.

    I don't think there's any doubt this is going to the supreme court. Kennedy will probably end up being the swing vote, again, but I have no idea where he stands on the commerce clause etc.

    Sorry. I was thinking of the case that's before the Fourth Circuit.

    I am surprised they ruled at all, the woman lacked standing because she now has health insurance. When it goes to the full court they will probably dismiss the entire suit for lack of standing.

    Big blow to Obama in a damned if they do damned if they don't scenario. Now Republicans many independents and still many liberals will be eager to get someone in the WH that will do away with the unconstitutional law.

    OKay, give me a hint. Did you read the article or are you delusional? Two republican appointed judges upheld the HC law. Explain why this is a blow to Obama.

    No, two of the judges were appointed by GW and Reagan. So much for the "partisan judge" argument.
