Obamacare – Day 3

Posted by Troy on 28th March 2012 in Current Events, Political

Today was the last hearing on Obamacare before the Supreme Court.  Today’s topic was the severability.  If the individual mandate is shot down, can Obamacare survive without the individual mandate?

You may remember that, when it was passed, it was pointed out that it did not have a severability clause.  Many on Obama’s staff urged him to include a severability clause.  However, at the time, he declined to do so.  At the time, he said that the bill could not stand without the individual mandate as it was the funding mechanism.  Of course, now they are saying that it could be severed.

I like it when one justice invoked the Eight Amendment and said there was no way they were going to go through a 2,700 page documents and pick out which pieces could stay and which ones would not.

I will boldly predict that it will be a 5 to 4 vote.  Two of the Liberal judges were appointed by Obama, and one of those worked on the Healthcare Act directly (Kegan).  Gingsburg thinks the US Constitution is outdated.  Basically, the Leftist judges really didn’t care what The individual mandate will be thrown out, and the rest of the bill will be thrown out due to a lack of severability.  All the Democrats that sold their souls to the Party to pass it an and lost their jobs because of it will have destroyed their careers for naught.

Long Live the Constitution!
