As early as tomorrow or as late as next week, the nation will learn of the Supreme Court’s decision regarding Obamacare – a bill that mandates all Americans buy health insurance or be penalized by the government.
WASHINGTON — Television cameras will surround the Supreme Court on Thursday morning, as they did Monday, anticipating something that may, again, not happen.
…Last Friday was the deadline for justices to hand in dissents. Then whoever is writing the majority opinion – the betting is on Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. – has the option of responding to any criticism of the ruling in his own opinion.
…The court is not meeting Friday, so if the healthcare decision does not come Thursday, the next opportunity would be Monday. LINK
Today saw the Obama White House invoke Executive Privilage over the ongoing Fast and Furious investigation/scandal – indicating to the American people that perhaps the president was far more involved in the failed and deadly gunrunning operation than his own previous statements suggested. To follow that up with a Supreme Court decision that strikes down all or some of the Obamacare legislation would be among the most damaging 1-2 political punches against a presidential administration for some time.
Last week many in the media were indicating how the Obama re-election campaign was floundering.
Now it is the Obama presidency itself that is at risk…
