In as soon as ten days from now, the Supreme Court is expected to render its decision on the unconstitutionality of ObamaCare. During the week of June 25th, America will learn whether Obama’s attempt, using his draconian health care law and an unprecedented individual mandate, to take over 1/6th of our nation’s economy will fail to pass through the branch of government designed to protect our citizens from overreach and tyranny.
While we wait, Forbes has some good news.
So much for a national health care law.
Based on Intrade, there is a 69.9% chance that the Supreme Court will strike down the individual mandate in the national healthcare reform act, known in the political soap opera world as “ObamaCare”.
But, the Supreme Court couldn’t possibly thwart Obama’s challenge to them to disregard the U.S. Constitution and uphold ObamaCare’s unprecedented individual mandate. Because, two months ago Obama dared the court to do just that. Then declared, “It will be upheld, because it should be upheld”. Benjamin Franklin would disagree.
