    This is a bipartisan panel, and none of them like the mandate.

    Talk about a slanted article.

    Slanted article? When did the AP become anti Obamacare? How is reporting the fact that the court thought the mandate is stretching Congress' powers past the limit of common sense equal a slant in your world?

    And by "the court", you and the author mean one member of panel (since that's the only one he ever quotes).

    All there judges on the panel questioned the mandate.

    By the way, the article mentions specifically that two of them asked about removing the mandate from the complete law. Thanks for showing your slant though.

    What both you and the author of the article fail to realize is that asking a question about something doesn't equal agreeing with the premise of the question.

    Where did I say it did? The thing is that everyone that heard the arguments thinks the signs are bad, but feel free to live in Polkland if you like.

    the federal govt has NO constitutional authority to compulse us to buy insurance from a private company or face a government fine. /obamacare.

    also the constitution does not give the federal govt the responsibility to insure us. All powers not expressly granted to the federal govt are reserved to the states. /obamacare.

    either way it was just a stupid waste of time at this point......maybe i'll be wrong but i dont think so, its up to the courts.
