Article:

The same Supreme Court justices whom President Obama blasted during his State of the Union address this year may ultimately decide the fate of his crowning achievement as more than a dozen states have called on the courts to strike down the health insurance mandate of Democrats' health care overhaul - a move that would threaten the entire law.


At issue is the scope of the federal government's power over states and individuals. Critics of the law say the requirement that all Americans buy insurance or pay a fine, if allowed, would mean that Congress has virtually boundless authority to compel actions. Proponents argue that legal precedents support an expansive reading of the legislative branch's license to regulate such activity.

I think in the end-as I am sure many of you, the Supreme Court will be the ending day for HCR. It is just too riddled with unconstitutional mandates and requirements. They will ensure America stays free and not a socialistic leaning left country (I hope)

Nice article laying out both sides of the arguements.

I'm betting that they decline to hear the case. That's what they do when the constitutionality of the Federal Income Tax is challenged. They know that there is a strong legal case against it, so why take a chance by allowing the arguments to be heard?
