    I predict 3 votes to keep Obamacare as is, 4 votes to toss the whole law, and 2 votes to toss the mandate and the insurance reforms. This will give a 6-3 decision against the mandate.

    Flip it. 6 votes to end it all. 3 (Kagan, Ginsburg, Sotomayor) to keep it.

    5-4

    Both parties seem to favor voting along party lines. The Supreme Court is a joke.

    If its found unconstitutional, thats actually bad news for Republicans. It means the only other choice for universal coverage is single payer, government run.

    If the mandate is struck down, the movement for single payer will grow to epic porportions.

    I think you guys predicting 6-3 think the Court has more balls than it does. It's gonna come down 5-4 on the Mandate, the Rest I believe will stand.

    Hope I am wrong, but I don't have much Confidence in this court, Despite the Spin from the left that it's the Most Right wing Court ever.

    I have said all along, as much as I don't like Single Payer, it would be a Huge Improvement on the Joke Obama and the Dems Sold us.

    I predict Quantum Windbag is going to be wrong.

    There is no logic behind my prediction other than that the odds are in my favor.

    I agree.

    isnt it funny though...how the mandate was a conservative idea...until it was a liberal one...and then it was unconstitutional?

    I mean sheesh...shouldnt the Republicans have claimed victory and spkied the ball?

    makes no damned sense at all.

    I hate the mandate. I understand its value...but IO hate it. Because without price controls it allows for MAJOR price gouging.

    And yes, though my wife works in the health insurance field ( and does quite well ) I am in favor of a single payer government run system. Ill take the jerks I can vote out over the jerks I cant any day.

    Works for me.

    On the other hand, if I am right I am going to look really smart.

    I don't think you fully understood the joke at all. This was NOT the package that was originally specified or even asked for. ACA, as we have it today is actually what was handed back to the Dems after the Reps got through with it. They were obviously hoping that the measure would either fail a legal challenge or, even funnier, that it would pass and then fail to live up to it's promises. Either way, they get to smirk and point their finger at Obama.

    What a way to run a country.

    Would you like a list of conservatives that opposed the mandate way back when it was first suggested as an alternative to Hillarycare?
