    Until it is decided by the S.C. all these little rulings here and there are meaningless. So yes it should go the Supreme Court.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Yes, they are. But this is our process.

    The health care bill is in need of many improvements. With people who know how to read and write, the paperwork can be reduced.
    A public option must be included.
    Lets also hope that the decency and quality of our people is not as bad as has been recently shown.
    If the Supreme court makes the wrong decision, American progress can be set back by years , I hope the SCOTUS realizes this.

    Don't be too sure they will kill it. It's more political than substantive, and since they will vote the Rep way, the way it always does, it will depend on how the political winds blow at the time.

    Really? What a waste of time and money. We alllll know it'll go all the way. Stupid to not put it on a nonstop flight.

    It maybe a waste of time since it will end up there, but that doesn't mean that we should skip the process. It is there for a reason. Plus if we do it this time it what happens the next time something like this happens?

    then we can go back to destroying it via the political route. defunding in 2011, debating in 2012, and overturning with a Republican White House in 2013.

    I wonder if FDR's social security had the same tortuous route in the 30s, thanks to the wealthy conservatives..
    One conservative book, and one liberal, and one unbiased.......
