    As long the make up of the current court stays the same, I think ObamaCare will be overturned.

    And when the Supreme Court rules that the healthcare legislation is un-Constitutional, they also need to rule that forcing employers to provide health insurance to employees is un-Constitutional also. Last of all, they need to rule that forcing hospitals to treat patients who cannot pay is un-Constitutional.

    It is interesting how nobody seems to see this. I guess that is because most of you have your insurance paid for through your employer and don't want to be forced into having to buy it on the open market paying for it completely on your own. Therefore, it is okay in your minds. Where in the Constitution does it say employers must provide health insurance to their employees? Where in the Constitution does it say that privately funded hospitals must treat people who can't pay for the care they are receiving?

    What this tells me is that most of you don't care whether something is Constitutional or not, unless it might have a direct negative affect on you. If the Supreme Court ruled all of these un-Constitutional, I can just imagine the screaming from everyone on both sides how we cannot allow this to happen.

    A "Fox News" poll. Hilarious. I wondered how they worded it?

    Fox News - owned by Australians and Arabs. I'm sure they have the "best interests" of the nation in mind, after all, we know how much Arabs love the US.

    If rdean wasn't such a lazy son of a bitch, he'd have actually looked at the raw data and saw the poll was taken by two polling agencies, one Democratic and one Republican: Anderson Robbins Research (D) / Shaw & Company Research (R).

    All Fox did was pay for it.

    That little boy troll is more proof that ignorance is bliss.

    Public opinion polls are not the way we do constitutional law.


    Much as I agree with this opinion poll, it really is not the way we should go.

    Now, I do hope the justices see that congress moved way beyond and outside its authority here. But I don't see that happening. I think they will let it slide. Thomas and Scalia are in the mind that the government can do anything it wants.

    They may refuse to accept any case dealing with it. But opinion polls have no influence on US Supreme Court Justices. Polls are for the legislature and the President. I think polls should be outlawed myself. Even the college football poll!

    You're a racist and a zenophobe for hating on Auzzies and Arabs. Besides, we should only trust MSNBC, which is owned by G.E. who has a former CEO in the White House telling Obama what to do.

    And we know how much G.E. loves America don't we? From the "Evil Right Wing" HuffPo:
