    Covered or not, private insurance or taxpayer-funded government health care... patients only stay in the hospital as long as is medically necessary. It's the same standard for everyone.

    So why go about the most expensive way of doing this?

    Yep, I'm from the DC area and know lots of attorneys who practice there. Almost none of them take the DC bar. Most seem to go with VA.

    I took (and passed ) the LA and FL bars, which is a bit of a wicked combination. LA is civil law and has a full day of essay ... and no multistate. It's a three-day exam. I think the essay portion was just three questions. Then FL has the multistate and that weird common law.

    I tend to scurry away from people who can't hold up one end of an intelligent conversation.

    One of my favorite professors was from Tulane originally and was very "French Quarter" (imagine a Cajun Ricardo Montebalm-the guy who played Khan in the star trek movies). He was always talking about the Napoleonic codes. He was an expert on admiralty law which I guess is big in New Orleans.

    I don't see what difference that makes. The fact is that only the individual mandate's constitutionality is being questioned.

    The entire law does not revolve around the mandate, just the bring forced to cover sick people does. you are making the same augment that the government us making the result of which is to by-pass congressional authority on policy matters.

    This needs to be done, but also repaling every law that says only a doctor can do x would be even better

    Yeah, Tulane has one of the best admiralty programs in the country. I took one class but in retrospect I think it would have been cool to specialize in that area. Lots of travel to interesting places. Of course there's also 2AM helicopter rides to oil rigs in the middle of the Gulf... I worked for a firm in N.O. for a couple years that was half admiralty.
