    perhaps the rejection of the Individual Mandate, oddly, will be what it takes to turn Liberals against the dangerous doctrine of Judicial Supremacy?
    You would think Citizens United would have done that.

    In Reply to AdamT,

    Congress DOES have the ability to force people to buy things, the real question is will the 5 conservative Supreme Court justices vote responsibly in favor the constitution, or return the favor to the GOP who gave them their seats? Im beginning to worry it's all about returning the favor. While I do believe it will be upheld 6-3 or 5-4 (the most likely outcome), its just plain ludicrous to think a vote could get this close when the bill is obviously constitutional. 5 Tyrants will decide the fate of the millions who need healthcare, while republicans call Obama the dictator.

    Loaning money to a Bank that has to pay it back =/= buying a company and giving it to it's union.

    I had my problems with both, but one is significantly more egregious than the other.

    where did congress get that proper power? and what training do you have to make pronouncements that it is OBVIOUSLY Constitutional when judges and legal scholars have split on this issue.

    Is that the way the deal was fed to you? Last I looked we were given bank stocks just like we were given car company stocks - no difference at all.

    And not that it's really our business what the companies did with the money but instead of the bank money going to unions it went to a bunch of Fat Cat CEO's who had driven the banks into the hole in the first place.

    Sadly I think you believe what you have typed above. One thing is clear, that 'Moderate' by your name is way off base.
