    I know we won't know for sure until June, but there seems to be a general consensus around the country.

    Nancy should "unpass" it so we don't have to know what it says.

    I wouldn't put any confidence in anything Andrew Napolitano says,
    after hearing his famous "what if" nonsense.

    The man's a fear mongering opportunist at best, and a kook at worst.

    I believe he's one of the few remaining patriots that actually understands how the Constitution limits the federal government's role in our lives. He also understands the term 'original intent' when interpreting it.

    Yes, but it's how he delivers that understanding of the constitution that I object to.

    He takes isolated and one time events to their most extreme definitions, and then presents them as an everyday occurrence that threatens the very existence of this country.

    In other words, he lies.

    Finally made 1000 posts
    My concern is what kind of deal they will make amongst themselves to vaguely word the decision so the insurance mandate is struck down, but government can still do other things with the overall intent of the law.

    This is how I envision it coming down. I doubt very much that the USSC will do anything so radical as to throw the entire law out. Justice Kennedy probably wouldn't allow that and I believe he'll have the most influence on the decision.

    What does this nonsense mean?

    Besides, lets face it, you simply object to the Constitution.

    Example of a lie?

    Your take is probably a pretty good one.

    I'm thinking they will uphold the law. You know, promoting the general welfare and that interstate commence clause thing.

    I would be surprised if they throw it all out. I'm pretty sure it is 4-4 to make the mandate to buy insurance unconstitutional and still think Justice Kennedy could have gone either way but leaned toward killing the mandate. I give the odds of throwing the whole thing out as less than 50-50.

    What would happen if one of the justices got sick and incapacitated before the opinions are written and the decision is announced in June? I read that they actually voted to determine their decision last week but any justice can still change his or her mind after reading the written opinions.
