The healthcare battle wages on. As I listen and read the comments of the justices, the analogies they make sometimes sound very odd.
When Justice Scalia said that "it's like taking the heart out of the statue (which is the image of a carved person or animal) the statue is gone. And I'm like, a statue does'nt have a heart". After listening to it a couple of more times, I know he meant statute (a law enacted by the legislative body).
Justice Kennedy said "it is not for us to decide what the important parts of this law are, that would be judicial activism". Well, why did you nine decide to hear the case that looks like judicial activism.
Most of the pundits are saying the Obama adminstration are looking bad, they are losing their argument.
Wolf Biltzer toldhe had did a one hundred eighty degree turn from discussions he had with him in the past. Jeffrey believed that they would uphold the affordable care act, now he thinks they will overturn it.
The fine nine need to talk more in layman's turn. We know they're the fine nine but come on. Which one said something like if the federal government make you buy healthcare they could one day make you buy broccoli. That does not equate. Getting sick and eating broccoli to keep from getting sick is not the same. What if you fell down the steps and broke your leg.
We Americans just hope that we can get afforable healthcare, they need to make Obamacare more about the real care we need; universal healthcare for all Americas. The people making the decisions about the majority are doing fine with their healthcare, we are helping pay for it with our tax dollars, so what do they really care about everyone else.
