    Spoiler is for size. This should be a sane, rational debate.

    Or hopefully they quit while they're behind and stop reproducing.

    Kagan Must Recuse Herself from Obamacare Case

    I see she didn't recuse herself. Corruption in the Obama admin, shocking.

    Several articles on Drudge make it look like it's all over but the screaming - Obamacare expected to be declared unconstitutional, and the entire law is likely to be tossed.

    Eh. I'll believe it when I see it. SCOTUS is notorious in zigging when you think they're zagging.

    From the LA Times:

    If Kennedy is agreeing that the law has to go, that pretty much seals the deal.

    Justice Scalia is kicking ass. I have heard him give speeches and q&a at some events before and he really is a brilliant jurist.

    Now the old jew? Not so much.

    There's already been more time spent on the reading of this bill in the past day than what was done by all the representatives combined before it was voted on.

    And who's going to pass it? The Republican Congress or the soon to be Republican Senate?

    The Pubs had better have an alternative plan up their sleeves or they risk never seeing the inside of the Capitol building again.

    fixed it for you.

    do you expect Drudge to post links to stories that say anything else?

    Anyone else actually listen to all the oral arguments? It was tedious.

    I heard the part where they all laughed at the guy for refusing to call it a penalty.

    this.

    oral argument "trends" in questioning usually mean nothing to the outcome of the case. If anything, the justices try to draw out the last bit of reasoning from a "winning" side so that these arguments can be used to bolster the conclusions that they come to.

    it would be unwise to try and guess the outcome of a case from the tone of the oral arguments.

    I've been hearing a lot of pundits saying that the SCOTUS ruling against Obamacare could actually hurt the Republicans in November, since it takes away one of their major issues. If they rule in favor of it, the Reps have an argument to make that now they're the only defense against the law going into effect.

    They do have an alternative plan; no national health care. Which happens to be the plan most Americans support.

    Ummm Medicare is National Health care. Will SCOTUS get rid of that too? I don't think that option would be overly popular with people.

    That's a possibility. I think that both sides will benefit from whatever the decision is, come election time.

    Eh, I think that's kinda BS. SCOTUS overturning Obamacare says it was unconstitutional, and eliminates one of his main accomplishments of his presidency.
