The long anticipated healthcare ruling may come as early as tomorrow say some court watchers. A panel of Conlaw experts weighed in and said the law should be upheld as constitutional, then went on to say it probably won’t be:
Bloomberg— The U.S. Supreme Court should uphold a law requiring most Americans to have health insurance if the justices follow legal precedent, according to 19 of 21 constitutional law professors who ventured an opinion on the most-anticipated ruling in years.
Only eight of them predicted the court would do so.
I’m going to be contrarian and hopeful: the Supreme Court will not rule against any substantial part of the Affordable Care Act. Which is complete wishful thinking on my part, I have no idea.
We’ll find out who is right and who is wrong soon enough. I guess if it is struck down, then there might be a few items the wackos have already passed that could be vulnerable to the same pseudo-legal philosophy. When wingnuts are in power conspraicies over government takeovers and all that crazy shit suddenly fades and scatters faster than fallen winter leaves.
