Sorry, Hugh, but I think you are trying to make lemonade from this lemon, and I don't know if you can find enough sugar to make it palatable.

Questions to think about....

Is a bad bill unconstitutional just because its bad.
If a bad bill is not found to be unconstitutional, would you really want the court to throw it out anyway?

If ObamaCare, as detestible as it is, really is constitutional as a tax, then shouldn't it stand? Isn't that the conservative principle?

If it is constitutional as a tax, then it should have been clearly represented as a tax. As it stands now, Obama and his minions will still insist it is not a tax, and thus falsely claim that "We never raised taxes on the middle and lower classes!"

I guess being deliberately defrauded is part and parcel of the Left wing. "Who cares if we lied? It got the job done, didn't it?"

Yup. That's the leftwing all over. Gaining power over people like me by any means necessary.

Pardon me for saying it, but you people just stink to high heaven.

You missied the point of my questions. If Obama care is a tax and if as a tax it is constitutional, then shouldn't conservatives want the SCOTUS to uphold it even though it is bad law BECAUSE that is what the Constitution says? Aren't conservatives always saying the Constitution should be followed?

And I am no Democrat. Obamacare can't be cancelled fast enough as far as I am concerned.

Over at HughHewitt.com I have ventured the opinion that perhaps --just perhaps-- originalists will eventually recognize Chief Justice Robert's decision and opinion yesterday as a bit of judicial genius that will be his Marbury v. Madison --the case that at first glance seemed a win for an executive whom the then Chief Justice opposed but which was in reality a huge win for the Court and the original design of the Constitution.

We won't have even a preliminary assessment for at least four months, and even if Mitt Romney wins the presidency, the success of this...
