  •  Medicaid Expansion, DOMA and Federalism (0+ / 0-)

    The court's holding on Medicaid expansion as a violation of federalism and Kennedy's reasoning in DOMA scare me.  They appear to find a constitutional mandate for a balance of power between the federal government and the states.  

    Looks like baby steps down the road toward fulfilling Ed Meese's dream:  repealing incorporation that applies the Bill of Rights to the states using the due process clause of the 14th amendment.

    If DOMA is struck down on federalism grounds there will definitely be some some clouds in that silver lining.

    I'd hate to win on marriage equality and lose the right to an attorney when a state prosecutes me.

    This aggression will not stand, man.
