I thought I would do just a random opinion poll here on Dailykos. Everyone knows the Supreme Court is likely to rule on the ACA next week (either on Monday or as late as Thursday).

As noted above, the WH feels it has the power to confirm Richard Cordray to the CFPB and thus overcome partisan objections.  This is going to turn into a big fight because the precedent will be set.
