Why the Court will strike down the healthcare law

Some desperate liberals are trying to make themselves believe that fear for its "legitimacy" will prevent the Court (by which I mean, the five Republican justices in the majority) from striking down Obama's signature legislative accomplishment a few months before a presidential election.

Nonsense, says TBA. Look at the nine justices and their 5-4 split. It's like a pencil balanced on its point: it can't last forever. Which way will it fall?

If Roberts et al. can throw this decision and help get Obama out of office, Romney will likely get to replace Ginsburg and perhaps even Breyer, as well as assure right-wing replacements for Scalia and Kennedy if they step down. They have the chance to keep the Court on the Republicans’ side for at least another generation.

Versus the likelihood that Obama would get to appoint at least one replacement for a Republican justice in a second term, and tilt the Court’s balance with incalculable effects.

With the stakes so high, do you think Roberts et al. care about "legitimacy"? Of course they don't.


  1. Sure Mr. Justice Roberts cares about "legitimacy"! Think "dangling chads".

  2. Right. Bush v Gore 2 - The Reaping.

  3. A trip to the walk-in clinic with my daughter for a cough was $200. She was prescribed cough medicine and within a few days she was well. I didn't go to the clinic when I had the same cough and it took a good month to run it's course. Without insurance how does one afford medical care for their children? I mean, this was for a cough. What if you have 4 children? This is insane. We need universal healthcare and I hope this thing goes back to the drawing board so it can be done right the next time. jmho

  4. I was suggested this blog by my cousin. I am not sure whether
    this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about
    my trouble. You're amazing! Thanks!

    Search Engine Optimization services. It s worth it to start taking steps toward these initiatives now because
    the more actively involved seniors and their adult children get on the Internet.
    Today, all companies want to have a successful website need to fork over the money for
    5 years on a domain when they register it. Is there any information you could
    add podcasts to your marketing mix.
