    Even most Democrats think the law will loose in court. What does that say about all the posters here who keep saying Republicans are out of touch on Obamacare?

    doesn't matter what the people believe. It matters what the SCOTUS believes.

    I'm not convinced they will find it unconstitutional.

    What's not to find unconstitutional ?

    If they do, we may need to find us a new SCOTUS.

    Obama Care IS unconstitutional. But surely you recognize that the constitutionality of a law is not dependent on its popularity.

    The conservative SCOTUS has swayed public opinion to their principles over that of legislation passed by Congress ... a very ironic outcome to their own "stated" philosophy against judicial activism.

    The simple act of passing Legislation does not somehow make it Constitutional. If it did we would not need a Supreme Court.

    Quite true. I do, however, believe that the court learned from Roe v Wade and prefers to dodge controversy when it can. Striking down the mandate but allowing Obamacare to be dealt with by Congress would do it.
