Obama Faces Health Care Dilemma: (I bet he picks the worse choice)

With the health care law likely headed for the Supreme Court, the White House must decide whether to try and delay the case until after the 2012 election or go for an early decision to prevent money from being wasted if the initiative is struck down.

The Obama administration now faces a key legal and political dilemma -- what to do about the recent decision from a federal appeals court that said the new law's mandate that every uninsured American must buy health insurance is unconstitutional.

"They definitely don't want to see it go to the Supreme Court until after the elections,” said Kirsten Powers, a former Democratic operative and a Fox News analyst. “So my expectation is they would do whatever they can to slow walk this so that this does not get to the Supreme Court where possibly the individual mandate could be struck down which would be very damaging for the administration."

So the administration's strategy may be to postpone final judgment until after the election, and save the president potential embarrassment, but one of the lawyers challenging the law says the country deserves to know sooner rather than later. "People have to invest millions if not billions of dollars in revamping the Medicaid program, re-designing health insurance programs, saving for the mandate,” said Katsas said. “All of those sorts of decisions have to be made now by people who need to know what the rules are."


I believe they will try to slow walk it as Obama just can't afford another butt kicking defeat before the election (although I believe the writing is on the wall no matter what he does).

Of course, the Country will be forced to waste millions, if not billions, in money because they will refuse to move quickly. Moving quickly will just enforce his loss.

I really can't believe people still believe in Obama. Seriously. He is a complete FRAUD.

His re-election ad should be:

Obama 2012... I can't do much worse than I already have...

Just checked Drudge and saw these headlines (Obama lastest trickery and lies):


Move comes after Hispanics warn Obama on 2012 vote...

Bowing to pressure from immigrant rights activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria, such as attending school, having family in the military or having primary responsible for other family members’ care.

Basically, Obama wants to slow the deportation of illeagals so they can vote in 2012. Nice... He needs to GO!

People must be on vacation this weekend.

We have to pay attention to every action that surrounds the Obamacare matter.

They (Obama & CO) will use every trick available to him.... to not let the SCOTUS review this case.

It will expose them and the antics they used to force this thing down our throats.

They want the people to forget about it.... Nothing to see here.. Oh look another issue over there.

More transparency than any other Presidency. Another LIE!
