Comments: How long will that tenuous state of affairs endure?
Thank God the Founding Fathers were wise enough to appoint Anthony Kennedy as the final arbiter of our most basic rights.
Seriously, the SCOTUS ruling on MessiahCare will be a muddle. That is what all decisions are these days. It's like a lazy kid giving a book report on a book he hasn't read, stay non-committal and vague. I never signed up to live under the rule of robed masterminds.

The 10th Amendment to the Constitution: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." I don't think that the Founder's intentions could be any more clear on this issue. I am still waiting for someone to explain how healthcare is a Federal concern.

How long? NO LONGER. OCare is "constitutional" [sic]....whatever the Constitution MEANS after today....

Good. The worse things get for Joe and Jane Six-Pack, the sooner the whole mess comes crashing down, Greece-style. Only with no Angela Merkel to bail us out...
Nothing will change until the average American starts suffering. The more suffering, and the sooner the suffering, the better for the Good Guys.
