    All bark, no bite. These cases will go nowhere. Waste of time and money.

    Interstate commerce. This will eventually probably go to the SC based on the govt forcing its own citizens to buy a product. That part will be struck out as unconstitutional but probably not the rest of the bill.

    Wrong, This case has a very strong argument on the Individual Mandate.

    I would bet you right now that the US supreme court would rule 5 to 4 that the Mandate violates the constitution.

    well, don't count your chickens before they are hatched.I am trying to remember/ find, I think it was the Wyoming (?)case.

    back in the 30's a guy was growing his own feed for his cattle or some such, he was taken to court and lost , it went all the way up I believe to the SC, where in he was accused of not buying grain etc. on the market.....he lost.

    You realize if the individual mandate is struck down and the rest of Obamacare remains intact for the most part, that could mean the beginning of the downfall of insurance companies as we know them? So yeah, I'm ok with striking down the mandate if thats the end result.
