    Not likely. We're talking Democrats here... icon_rolleyes.gif


    Right... because Thomas recused himself from rulings that directly benefited his wife's business. Oh that's right. He didn't. In fact, he didn't even bother to report his wife's earning on his tax returns. For several years. icon_rolleyes.gif

    We'll see yet again that the Repubs on the SCOTUS are blatantly biased and partisan.

    The Repubs on the SCOTUS will rule against the HCR bill and prove yet again that they're more interested in playing politics and influencing election outcomes than they are in respecting the Constitution.

    But, the blatant partisan bias of the Repubs on the SCOTUS will backfire and hurt the Repubs in the election.

    I have my doubts that their going to strike Obamacare down, but I sure hope your right. This bill needs to go. Let the states have it. If the blue states want to continue to run themselves in the ground with socialism, thats fine, but leave the other states alone. The people dont want it. Ohio proved that last week.

    Considering that most red states are recipients of federal largesse in the form of "wealth redistribution" from blue states, perhaps we should just keep our money and let the red states implode.

    LOL!
    Actually - Ohio proved that the American people oppose the Repub party's efforts to destroy the unions and replace people power with ever greater corporate power.

    But, if you want to live in denial with the rest of your right-winger buddies - go for it!

    Actually, Ohio voted down Obamacare with 66% of the vote. It proves that the people dont want this bill. It cannot be forced upon us.

    Justic Thomas didn't actually work on defending / opposing Obamacare. Justice Kagan did.



    Its spelled justice, hahahahahaha. I thought I would be an insulting liberal.

    re this "wealth distribution". Is there actually a federal program in the US for this like there is in Canada. Here it's call federal equalization payments where the fed govt doles out more money to the so called "have not provinces"

    Its not a specific program but the result of a host of programs that are paid for via federal taxes wherein blue states largely pay more and red states largely receive more.
