    Since you mentioned 'studies that show sometimes waiting is better than acting quickly', perhaps you'd be kind enough to provide a link to said study, rather than make us look up something 'you' claimed?
    Boo also ignores the wait time in MA for a doctor appointment and because of that wait time the ER's are more crowded now than ever before. Imagine adding another 30 million to the healthcare system and what that will do to ER's and healthcare costs? Nothing is ever going to change Boo's mind but Boo never backs up his claims with actual data other than distorted cost figures. Somehow adding 30+ million to National healthcare is going to magically lower costs and increase access.

    I'm guessing the poster of this thread doesn't put up threads titled "Obama Health-Care Act Ruled Constitutional" every time it's upheld in court.

    lower court rulings are immaterial.

    Unless it's not appealed (which it will be in this case).
    The ones who held it up aren't really any higher in the court system than the ones who didn't.

    Well, If Obama (and you) are so confident that the SCOTUS will uphold the law, then why the stalling game?

    What stalling game? Every case that comes to the SC has to go through a very specific process.

    Didn't the judge order the government to file their appeal, or comply with his decission? That was stalling.

    It's going to get appealed by one party or another in every case that was brought to court.

    Yes, but in this case it was the government that was ruled against, and just simply ignored the court, then had to be threatened by the judge. This is some group we have in charge.

    Like criminal laws, court rulings are only immaterial when they are inconvenient to Republicans.

    "The stalling game" is the legal challenge itself. If conservatives were so confident the American people would be dissatisfied with the results, they wouldn't be trying to bring the program down before it even begins. At every turn, the GOP says one thing and does another. Its hypocrisy and doublethink are legendary.
