    Health Care Law: Do you support sending it straight to the U.S. Supreme Court?

    Considering the time, money, uncertainty in the business world and political wrangling that will take place over the next couple of years before the Supreme Court hears this case, would you prefer to see this issue brought before the Supreme Court within the next 60 to 90 days or do you think it should first be dragged out over several years with multiple District Court opinions, Appeals Court opinions etc.?

    The health care law should be treated the same as any other law, so no, I do not support sending it straight to the supreme court.

    Of course not, you want to keep "the hope alive".

    It needs to go there, and be killed. Then maybe we can get the House and Senate to actually craft a constitutional, helpful and productive bill that fixes problems instead of wastes money, puts us in debt and is mainly a "permanent vote machine" for one party.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It needs to sent the Supreme Court for that "One Shot, One Kill" that the Supreme Court can do.

    Yes, because it will end up there anyway.

    I do not support sending it straight to the Supreme Court, but I support it going to the Court. Just because people do not like the law doesn't mean that it can skip the steps between.

    I quite agree.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
