    President Barack Obama is one of the worst presidents ever in terms of respecting constitutional limitations on government, and the states suing the federal government over healthcare reform "have a pretty strong case" and are likely to prevail, according to author and judicial analyst Andrew P. Napolitano.

    In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV's Ashley Martella, Napolitano says the president's healthcare reforms amount to "commandeering" the state legislatures for federal purposes, which the Supreme Court has forbidden as unconstitutional.

    "The Constitution does not authorize the Congress to regulate the state governments," Napolitano says. "Nevertheless, in this piece of legislation, the Congress has told the state governments that they must modify their regulation of certain areas of healthcare, they must surrender their regulation of other areas of healthcare, and they must spend state taxpayer-generated dollars in a way that the Congress wants it done.

    Newsmax - Napolitano: Supreme Court to Strike Down Obamacare

    I have heard judge Andrew Napolitano speak before and he is a constitutional brain. On the other hand I have heard others state that the U.S. supremes will not overrule this bill?

    Your thoughts?

    As with most issues, there are two sides to every story.

    If either Napalitano or Davis were sitting on the Supreme Court today, I might just listen to them about this particular subject. Since they are not, I have to take both opinions with a grain of salt and hope that the best outcome for the citizens of the U.S. of A. is the final outcome decided by the court.

    I predict they will refuse to hear the case.....there's something wrong with the way they can pick and choose.

    While I do agree that Obama is the worst President in history, this will not , nor should it be struck down by anybody. It is said that the federal government can not require that you buy a product. Bull, we are required to buy them every day with our taxes. Governments require you pay taxes, buy auto insurance, buy cars that have seat belts, (and use them). If you think for a moment this will be struck down you are fooling your self.
