There’s a fox in the woodshed! Why has the Justice Department filed a petition asking the Supreme Court to expidite a decision on Obamacare?
It is a sure sign that the Justice Department knows something that Americans aren’t privy to, because logic says Obama would not want Obamacare to reach the Supreme Court until the Presidential Election in 2012.
The Justice Department says it will file a petition today asking the Supreme Court to uphold the individual mandate in the health reform law. In a statement, the Department says: “Throughout history, there have been similar challenges to other landmark legislation such as the Social Security Act, the Civil Rights Act, and the Voting Rights Act, and all of those challenges failed. We believe the challenges to Affordable Care Act — like the one in the 11th Circuit — will also ultimately fail and that the Supreme Court will uphold the law.” http://www.politico.com
It really doesn’t take the Supreme Court to tell us that the individual mandate to buy healthcare insurance is not legal. But, the Supreme Court is our final decision maker and they tend to rewrite the laws not interpret them as stated in our Constitution. Since our Judges tend to construe laws to fit their Ideology – anything goes and the final decision is anyone’s guess.
The fact that Obamacare has been removed from the backseat of the bus to the front tells a story in itself. The last thing in the world Obama would want at this time during his declining approval rating is to have the Supreme Court declare it unconstitutional; so it appears the Obama and the Justice Department knows something that we don’t know.
Obamacare remains a concern to all; (1) Businesses refuse to hire until there is a final decision on the legality of Obamacare, (2) Healthcare costs will be prohibitive if Obamacare isn’t repealed, (3) Patient’s care has already been compromised do to Obamacare, and (4) The Individual mandate that requires everyone to obtain health insurance is a sure sign that the Government isn’t a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
Obama doesn’t like to play poker unless he has a “royal flush.”
May God Bless America
