    The Conservatives on the court who constantly proclaim they are interpreting the constitution the way the founding fathers intended, have a very good record of putting their politics above the constitution.

    Bush V Gore, Citizens United, and many other pro-Oligarch decisions lead me to believe they will reject the mandate on pure BS grounds.  The constitution is like the Bible, I can interpret it to fit any need I might come up with.

    The talk about some of the conservative judges might vote to uphold the mandate because they've done something similar in the past is nonsense.  This court will vote what is in the best interest of the Oligarchs, no matter what they've done in the past.

    This should send a huge red flag to the people who are planning on sitting home  this Nov.!  The Supreme Court is reason enough to get off your ass and get out and work for someone who may be appointing new justices in the next 4 years!

      is in all likelihood far deeper and more honest than the legal debate going on in the heads of the RATS.
      Sorry, but I just cannot believe these operatives on the Supreme Court are going to act entirely out of character and hear this case only on the merits. CU is proof positive that precedent and "the way the law has consistently been read for over a century" don't mean shit to these guys.
      They have an agenda to move, and they will move it. Sure, they'll try to hide this behind bizarre, tortured opinions, but failing that they will issue a convenient ruling and then say "just this once" like they did in Bush v Gore.

      Class war has consequences, and we are living them.
