The liberal pundits in Washington are working overtime in the days leading up to oral arguments before the supreme court on Health Care Mandate. Twenty Seven states Attorney General have filed suit saying that the Constition does not give the Federal Government the right to tell the individual citizen that he has to buy health insurance.
The liberal pundits have been churning out theories about how they can convince one of the Courts more conservative justices to vote to say the individual mandate is constitutional. John Roberts, Sam Alito, Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia are the more Conservative members. Anthony Kennedy is the swing vote who votes with the conservative majority most of the time but occasionally votes with the more liberal
wing which consist of Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
I have see pundits make arguments based on the writing of the decisions of Roberts, Alito and Scalia reasoning that they could see them voting to uphold the mandate. But my point is pretty simple. I cant see any of these three throwing away their career to uphold the mandate.
Pretty good summary about the case against Romney about Obamacare. Frankly you are going to have to get from 48 votes in the Senate to 60 votes to break a filibuster. Because as long as Democrats can block a repeal of the healthcare law with a filibuster they will. Just dont see Romney raising enough enthusiasm to get to 60 votes. Either in 2012 or 2014. Your are going to have to create a big conservative tide and frankly
I cant see Romney doing that
Not as many GOP blunders as you think
Health care law will cause people to lose coverage
Pretty interesting Life on the Rock about October Baby
