The central piece of Barack Obama’s biggest legislative accomplishment is jeopardy.
Supreme Court Health Care law, aka the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, some say, aka the Civil Rights Act of 1964, not exactly is being weighed on heavily.
Never before in our nations history has Congress attempted to force Americans to purchase a product, in this circumstance, the government cut deal with insurance companies that agreed to expensive regulations in exchange for the government forcing citizens to buy their product, oh and the government would get hundreds of billions in tax dollars from subsidies.
So, if outcome number one happens, and the Supreme Court Health Care decision does allow the law to stand, then any industry with lobbying power would fight for a law forcing citizens to buy their products, not to mention the private insurance companies crippled and the eventual government takeover of healthcare.
On the other side of things, if the Supreme fails to completely strike down the law, then Congress and the president will have to correct the court’s error and restore a “constitutionally limited government,” which means, an even important decision for voters in the upcoming election.
After here what the statements, of the alleged swing vote, by Justice Anthony Kennedy, CNN’s Jeffry Toobin called the morning, “a train wreck for the Obama administration.” He concluded saying, “This law looks like it’s going to be struck down.” Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said after hearing Kennedy, “I’m not predicting he’s going one way or another, but I was very heartened by the questions he was asking.” We’ll all just have to wait.
