VIDEO: OBAMACARE IS A TOUGH SELL

This is what happens when an honest man, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, is asked to make a dishonest argument before the Supreme Court. The nine justices of that Court have finely tuned BS detectors, and he knew his presentation was going to set them off. Anyone with a conscience would have been nervous:

SUPREMES VOTE TODAY ON OBAMACARE

Although we the mere voters won’t be privy to the outcome until June, the nine justices of the Supreme Court will convene in a private conference today to cast their votes: After months of anticipation, thousands of pages of briefs and more than six hours of arguments, the justices will vote on the fate of [...]

VIDEO: CNN LEGAL EXPERT CALLS OBAMACARE SUPREME COURT DEFENSE A “TRAIN WRECK”

Today’s oral arguments before the Supreme Court focused on the constitutionality of the individual mandate, and it didn’t go well for the Obama administration. CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin described it as follows: This was a train wreck for the Obama administration. This law looks like it’s going to be struck down … if I had [...]

THE AUDIO FROM TODAY’S SUPREME COURT HEARING ON OBAMACARE

Want 90 minutes of rollicking fun? Go to the official site of the U.S. Supreme Court and listen to the oral arguments from today’s ObamaCare hearing. The topic is the Anti-Injunction Act and whether it deprives the Court of jurisdiction over this case (at this time). Actually, it’s quite interesting.

OBAMACARE CAN’T BE SERVED À LA CARTE

In today’s American Spectator I use a gastronomical analogy to suggest that the individual mandate is not severable from Obamacare and, by extension, why the Supreme Court must send ACA back to the kitchen: Two years ago, when the chefs of the Democrat Party emerged from the legislative kitchen with that noisome combination of noxious [...]

CAN PELOSI REALLY BE THIS STUPID? NOPE!

Much has been made of Pelosi’s allusions to the Declaration of Independence in this floor speech. It sounds like she’s a little fuzzy on the difference between that document and the Constitution, which is the actual foundation of our system of government and the yardstick by which ObamaCare’s legality will be measured by the Supreme [...]

SUPREME COURT PRIMER: HOW THE PROCESS WORKS FOR ORAL ARGUMENTS

Next Monday, the Supreme Court will begin 3 days of hearings on Obamacare. Not many people know the details of the oral argument process (including yours truly), so this video primer from Senator Mike Lee (who served as a law clerk for Justice Alito) is interesting indeed: [ht Ross Kaminsky]

WHERE’S MY $2,500 MR. PRESIDENT?

Barack Obama promised, during the 2008 presidential campaign, ”We will bring down premiums by $2,500 for the typical family.” Many of us said at the time that this was almost certainly BS. Well, now we know for sure: [ht Milton Wolf]

VIDEO: DOCTOR OBAMA DOES THE ELDERLY

AmericanDocs4Truth has produced an excellent sendup of the infamous “Granny” video produced by the Obamazombies when Rep. Paul Ryan announced his inititial Medicare reform plan. Then they explain some home truths about ObamaCare that most Americans don’t know: [ht Paul Hsieh]

OBAMACARE & APPEALS TO SUPREME BEINGS

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses the antics the Obama administration and its lickspittles will be up to during next week’s Supreme Court hearings on ObamaCare: Next week, almost exactly two years after the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was foisted on an unwilling electorate by a combination of congressional skullduggery and presidential [...]
