    Opening up across state lines wouldn't help that much. Articles on that have been linked before. It is as likely to raise rates in other states as to lower them. We can go over all the minor changes often offered up, but I don't really see the need.

    And conspiracy theories aside, a single payer system would be better all around. If we were serious about health care reform, that is the way we would go. Today, the public option would have been better than where we ended, but I doubt those who went crazy over that option will stand up and take their fair share of blame as to where we ended up.

    As for the court, as i read it, they are divided and it will fall to the tie breaking judges. It will be a split decision either way. Whiel i would prefer something more solid, it will be interesting to see where they fall.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Really? Because I find that he holds to his own judicial philosophy extremely consistently, and almost always explains his position clearly and very well in his many, many dissenting opinions. The only time I can recall him even seeming inconsistent is in a cross burning case...the name escapes me at the moment.

    Consistency does not always mean intelligent. You can be consistently irrational in your logic just look at Rhenquist. Rhenquist would author the most convuluted, yet consistent decisions that bent over backwards to reach the conclusion that he wanted.

    Or, you can consistently misspell a man's name, to make another example.

    I'm sure that's a matter of opinion. Lawyers usually have things against judges that don't hold the same opinions.

    Well, thanks for playin'....Someone call the SCOTUS, boo doesn't see the need, send 'em all home.

    And conspiracy theories aside, a single payer system would be better all around. If we were serious about health care reform, that is the way we would go. Today, the public option would have been better than where we ended, but I doubt those who went crazy over that option will stand up and take their fair share of blame as to where we ended up.
    Public option in this country will NEVER fly, so you can just forget it.

    As for the court, as i read it, they are divided and it will fall to the tie breaking judges. It will be a split decision either way. Whiel i would prefer something more solid, it will be interesting to see where they fall.
    5-4 still means that Obamacare goes bye, bye.....And Kennedy was asking more Libertarian style questions today, which are leading the pundits to surmise that he will fall to the right.

    that's a silly comment. Having argued a couple dozen federal appellate cases I note that often judges ask questions that appear to be nothing more than trying to outdo the people sitting next to them. Maybe listening makes more sense-especially to the advocates who have spent hundreds of hours on the cases
