    [QUOTE=cpwill;1060338601]It is fantastic to hear this. It would be even better if it's not a 5-4 Decision to strike the mandate, but I don't think that's going to be likely.







    Sounds like Justice Kennedy has the same concerns around 60% of the public have concerning this HC law.

    to quote several of my leftwing friends-a good start

    but sadly it appears there has been a retreat from that bold and obvious step

    Thanks for posting this. Our freedoms are being eroded little by little.

    No it's not, it's really inevitable if this bill gets struck down. The status-quo can't last forever, and change is needed.

    I doubt people are going to be very enthusiastic about another major tax and spend program until we do something significant about the current debt situation, which will undoubtedly turn critical again after the election.

    Not really, we could see a slow-growth expansion of the two-tier system and still provide "universal coverage" without going single payer. Single-payer couldn't even pass with heavy house and senate Democrat majorities and a Democratic president with health care reform his primary goal.
