Supreme Court takes up Obamacare, and I’m sure I’ll have lots to say about it. It seems unconstitutional on its face, and I’ve never heard a decent argument for it. It always rests on political posturing and what Thomas Sowell called, “Cosmic Justice.” But we’ll see how the SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) responds.
In terms of this upcoming election, Obama is in a tight spot. If SCOTUS upholds it, many people will be motivated to vote against Obama no matter who the opponent is. Something like 60% of the population hate it. Romney has said he would get rid of it, and most of us want to be rid of it.
But if the SCOTUS strikes it down, then we have the issue of Obama trying to ram down our throats a manifestly unconstitutional program. It is proof positive of just how bad his judgment is, and people will be motivated to get rid of him.
It’s really a lose/lose situation for Obama, and I’m shocked that they allowed it to go to the SCOTUS right before an election. It also, if upheld, makes SCOTUS look bad and people will have a lack of confidence in the legal system. That is bad.
