Preview of possible S.Ct. decision on Obamacare

It seems highly likely that the final say on the constitutionality of Obamacare will be had by the U.S. Supreme Court. If past patterns hold it will be 4-4 with Kennedy the swing vote. Doctrinally, I think he will vote against it, but he may decide that this is too great a leap by the Court and go with it. Stay tuned. See the linked article from the Economist which is an excellent publication (sometimes with a conservative lean).


  1. Ray said about Justice Kennedy " ...but he may decide that this is too great a leap by the Court..."

    Not when congress purposely misapplied the constitution's commerce clause to push their overreaching agenda. They've aggressively violated states' sovereign rights. Today's social progressive is moving our country ever more closer to its final straw.

  2. 44: Thanks for the comment. I agree. I hope Kennedy will enough loyalty to the Constitution to strike down the law.
