A ruling on Obama could come as early as today. What’s your prediction? Will it all go down? Split decision? Will the mandate survive? Don’t come back in a few days and tell everyone how right you were at the water cooler debate, get on record now.

    Thanks! You just jinxed it by assuming it is a done deal.

    Mandate down.  And, the Supremes being animals of politics, will demand the Congress re-do the parts people like, but pay for it in another way.  Then, the how we do it becomes a distracting issue for November.  This plays better for Obomb.  Romney and Republicans better have some simple sounding, easy to understand and like ideas to roll out next week.

      I think most of America would be ecstatic if they just passed a law saying that all insurance carriers must accept customers with pre-existing conditions.

        Most CONSERVATIVE Americans will want to see Tort Reform and penalties for fraud near the top of any new bill.  That would be the “sugar coating” on a bitter pill.  We would want to see some limits on care for illegals – not NO CARE as we are Christians, but a limited care.  We would want to see some level of “co-pay” for each visit to help encourage people to use some discretion. I want to see a limit on illigit births, like forced sterilization after 2,  but that is where my radical-me starts to come out…

          Americans want to see a plan that lowers the cost of health insurance. It is that simple.  America has the best health “care” in the world but the cost is what burdens families. Obamacare did nothing to lower costs and in fact raised the costs of health insurance by putting mandates on pre-existing conditions and covering grown adults until the age of 26.

          What the GOP needs to do is have a real plan that lowers costs by providing people with more consumer choice options that extend beyond their state boundaries and allows patients to purchase plans that fit their needs and wants. 

          I am no expert on the ins and outs of the health care industry. Half the time I have little understanding as to my own plan. What I do know is that most Americans have insurance and are happy with their quality of care but they hate the price tag. Most would be “ecstatic” just to have their costs go down. Once that is done a common sense plan to deal with the those who truly cannot afford access should be established.

        Would not make me ecstatic. I have to cover the cost of those who wait until they need care and then sign up at the last minute. My premiums are higher due to those individuals. Of course, when given the option, I will cancel my own policy until the moment I need care and you can pay the higher premiums on my behalf. Much appreciated.

    I can’t decide. I think it’s 60-40 in favor of the whole law going down in flames.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and predict it will be a 6-3 vote against the individual mandate.

    Against – Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, Alito, Kennedy, Breyer

    For: Kagan, Soto, Ginsburg

    Throw the whole thing out 5-4

    Against: Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, Alito
