Senator Max Baucus (D-Mont.) thinks the president should seriously consider delaying the individual mandate tax on Americans who don’t purchase health insurance by March 31 -- that is, if Healthcare.gov isn’t up and functioning properly sometime in the next 30 days.
The individual mandate was always more controversial than the employer mandate. That is why Obamacare specifically gave HHS the power to suspend it.
Obama will settle for nothing less than the full repeal of the debt limit. What should Republicans ask for in return?
Well even the Democrats are questioning Obamacare now.
“Equal justice under the law is a basic, founding principle of our country,” Griffin said, “so whenever Washington helps businesses and ignores families and workers, Americans have a duty to speak up.”
Here’s a poor, unsuccessful letter I sent to the editor of Politico:
Sometime in the next month, the United States Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of Obama’s individual mandate, the provision forcing everyone in the United States to buy health insurance.
Sometime in the next month, the United States Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of Obama's individual mandate, the provision forcing everyone in the United States to buy health insurance. Based on how badly this provision was defeated in the oral arguments, it will likely be struck down as unconstitutional.
Confronted with a 'train wreck,' the new archbishop of Baltimore implores us to 'pray diligently as communities, as families and as individuals.'
When President Obama made his famous declaration about how he was confident that “that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress,” many observers figured the chief executive missed April Fools’ Day by a single digit.
Back in the 1960s, conservatives angry at the Supreme Court's rulings under its liberal chief justice put up billboards with the message: "Impeach Earl Warren." Today, you can order T-shirts and buttons with an updated demand: "Impeach John Roberts."
Former law professor Barack Obama is alleging that a "good example" of judicial activism would be the Supreme Court (in his words, "a group of people") overturning "a duly constituted and passed law."
As an attorney who has argued a number of appellate cases, I can testify that judges' questions during oral arguments are not necessarily a good predictor of the outcome of a case. Judges often use oral argument as a sounding board for competing jurisprudential theories and as a vehicle for playing devil's advocate. The questions asked don't necessarily telegraph how the judges are feeling about the case, or the way they will ultimately rule.
It looks as if it's going to be Mitt Romney after all. With Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush endorsing the former Massachusetts governor last week, there aren't any white knights left to play the role of GOP savior. But that news hasn't reached his competitors yet.
When Mitt Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he saw a problem he believed government should solve. Ninety-three percent of the people in the state had health insurance -- including private insurance, Medicare and Medicaid -- but 7 percent did not.
