    I predict the mandate will be ruled unconstitutional. Although I can see a scenario or two where maybe Justices Roberts and Kennedy rule it Constitutional, I don't think its likely anymore after the oral arguments.

    Re: What wil SCOTUS decision on Obamacare Be?

    I am betting that after a spirited discussion, they decided that it could go either way, one or two are on the line(Roberts and kennedy) and really divided in how they want to rule, some one says "well, just punting it is a nice, legal, safe, convenient way to handle this", and they go that route.

    I am not betting much more than about a penny, but that is what I suspect will happen.

    1. I think the whole thing will be thrown out;
    2. If that doesn't happen then the mandate will be declared unconstitutional and the rest will stay.

    Anybody here have an office pool on this?

    I voted "Whole Bills Stays", which maybe just wishful thinking on my part.
    This SCOTUS is suspect,IMO, allowing personal politics to influence their thinking. I personally think that Clarance Thomas should recuse himself, for his wife's paid involvment with anti ObamaCare causes.

    The cost associated with the mandate should and predictably will have absolutely zero effect in the determination of it's legality.

    What will be the next "must buy" item that congress comes up with? Perhaps a little green electric cart with a wind/solar charger made, just by chance, in Nevada? Perhaps a breathalizer to install in every car to prevent DUI/DWI? There is NO END once you decide that the federal gov't can FORCE all citizens to buy something or pay a fine. USA, USA, USA...

    Maybe as many as four Chief Justices may have a conflict of interest with the Obamacare ruling.

    The problem is that this Court rules politically and not Constitutionally. If they go by precedent there is no possible way this could be ruled unconstitutional. But the Roberts Court is corrupt.

    I predict that there will be many peopel claimign the result is unjust and that this is proof of how the judicary is out of control, This will happen regardless of what they decide.

    You can't force someone to buy something they already have, so you mean you can't force someone to pay for their healthcare......it's in the Constitution. Free HC for all. If only it were true huh?
