    3 days of testimony begins tomorrow at the SCOTUS for the constitutionality of Obamacare.

    Thoughts or predictions? And a live feed isn't available is it?

    I can't predict what the SCOTUS will do, but I have an if-then prediction.

    IF the court strikes down all of Obamacare, or the individual mandate, we will have a single-payer system within four years.

    If it lets Obamacare stand, we will have a single-payer system within twelve years, but not necessarily in four.

    As for the live feed, I don't think that Supreme Court trials have ever been televised, so I'd tend to doubt it.

    I don't see q single payer if its struck down. Congress will never go for that after the damage they took from passing this. As to your second point, I'm confident that was the plan all along. Hopefully it fails also.

    This is probably the most important issue the SCOTUS has ever presided over. The outcome will either turn America into a tyrannical state, or set precedent to uphold the constitution.

    I shudder to think of the America to come should they decide in favor of the individual mandate.

    A good chunk of Liberty could be lost.

    The problem is, if struck down or repealed, it won’t be replaced with anything, not in this hostile political climate.

    And millions will go without health insurance, just as planned by the GOP.

    In addition, the Act’s more popular and beneficial components – such as guaranteed coverage for pre-existing conditions and coverage for adult children up to age 26 – will also be lost.

    There are people camped outside the building. Been there for 3 days hoping to be the first in line to get seats. I just don't understand why a live feed is not allowed. One pool camera. Let everyone see what's going on rather than a select few who had nothing better to do in their lives than camp on a public sidewalk.

    Prediction: the mandate will stand.
