I love how the conservatives of this board automatically assume Obama doesn't care about the constitutionality of the law simply because he mentioned the law's popularity. It has powered the constitutionality test already and it went be judged inn its constitutional merits, it well be judged on it's wisdom and whether or not the law, due to the telling, will give too much power to the federal government.

Hayek - too liberal for republicans
"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."
-- Adam Smith

He explained again and still has it wrong!! This is incredible! The Supremes have "deference" only to the Constitution, not to Congress. Stop defending this clown. Rev. Wright referred to him as just another politician, and he had him pegged.He explained today: "The point I was making is that the Supreme Court is the final say on our Constitution and our laws and all of us have to respect it. But it's precisely because of that extraordinary power that the court has traditionally exercised significant restraint and deference to our duly-elected legislature, our Congress."
