The ObamaCare Argument DOA – The Third and Final Day

The ObamaCare Argument DOA – The Third and Final Day | Domestic Politics, Foreign Policy & Culture | Scoop.it

Obama's Solicitor General never imagined that other's would find flaws in his arguments. Everyone has. Because it's not the Administration's arguments that are flawed, but the law itself. The LAW - is unconstitutional on many levels.

 

The surest sign your lawyer hasn't done a good job is when you issue a statement defending his performance.

 

The conservative justices were obviously concerned that if they left parts of the law in place, the votes would not be present in Congress to fix it. From the “Louisiana Purchase” to the “Cornhusker Kickback,”so many “venal” deals (as Justice Scalia described at least one of them) were struck to get the votes needed for final passage, “legislative inertia” would prevent remedying any problems with the law.

Nine Justices will decide the fate of ObamaCare

 

Fundamental to our system of governance is the concept of federalism -- the division of power between the federal government and the states. Cemented in the Constitution, this concept provides the federal government with only certain, specific ("enumerated") powers, while the states hold all other powers of governance over the individual. This division, along with separation of the federal powers into executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, is the bedrock that secures individual liberty in the U.S.

 

Although federalism has eroded significantly in the last century, it faces its most serious threat via the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare. This week the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) heard six hours of oral arguments over three days -- the longest amount of time allotted in almost half a century -- and a record-setting 130 amicus briefs in cases consolidated under the title, Department of Health and Human Services, et al., vs. State of Florida, et al., which challenge the constitutionality of the law.

I think Obamacare was a really bad idea. It's a good article though. I was surprised it had a 6 hour argument on it!

This article relates ObamaCare to Federalism. Through ObamaCare , Federalism, the basis of our country's original being, is being completely tampered with. This health care movement completely confuses the branches of governance on a state and federal level. These two governments are forced to dip into each other's  responsibilities and everything will eventually knot itself up.

This article is about ObamaCare and the strong opinions that come with it. This healthcare movement confuses the branches of government, a lot will happened and people and citizens won't know whats going on and everything will eventually be messed up.
