    Totally agree. IMO, I think President Obama has stepped "in it". Polls on the HC bill show approx. 70% of voters don't want it. If the Supremes give it the go ahead, the voters will hand the president his walking papers. They want something dealing with HC, but not this rock.

    Why is it the GOP is willing to accept the Supreme Court decision to strike down the Health Care law should it decide to do it as a "just ruling", but continue for decades to force the Court to back away from their abortion "just ruling"? I guess it just depends on which side of the political fence you happen to be sitting on eh?

    You know that's pretty easily flipped around, right?

    "I guess it just depends on which side of the political fence you happen to be sitting on eh?"

    Both sides decry rulings and possible rulings when it doesn't meet their political agenda.... simple statement that both sides are hypocritical about Supreme Court "just rulings".

    I would submit that the point is that a sitting President is commenting on a decision while the decision is pending, in a "they better not" way.

    This is not as conservative politicians decrying past decisions, such as Roe v Wade, or liberals with Citizen's United, that they disagree with. This is about the sitting POTUS playing politics, lying, and basically besmirching, what is supposed to be a co-equal part of our checks and balances, while a decision is pending.

    Its BS from the dictator wannabee.

    This President just insulted the USSC by calling them "unelected officials". There is a cancer in the White House.

    Erm, you know that they aren't elected officials, right?

    The hypocrisy in this thread is absolutely astonishing. For how many decades have conservatives been whining about unelected judges trying to legislate from the bench?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I'm starting to believe President Obama is paving the way for another "presidential whine" to twirl up and pander to those few who want this HC bill. I think he sees the writing on the wall, that the Supremes will rule his and pelosi's HC bill is not constitutional.
