IN 3 DAYS OF OBAMACARE ARGUMENTS IN SUPREME COURT ... LIBERAL MEDIA ARE IN TOTAL FUNK OVER HOW BADLY THE ADMINISTRATION'S ARGUMENTS FOR OBAMA MANDATE WENT

What a wonderful 3 days of "teachable moments"!

How badly did it go for Obama?

The 3 networks barely covered it and, on the critical 2nd day, ABC and NBC didn't even lead off with it.

In 8 hours of morning news shows, the 3 networks spent a scant 4 minutes and 19 seconds TOTAL!

This is what the media do ... overblow a story if it advances their agenda (The George Zimmerman story) and hide the facts if they don't.

Did you follow any of it ... listen to the audio?

What a civics lesson and what insight into the checks and balances embodied in the Constitution and the brilliance of the founders in setting up the system those mastermind utopians on the left want to tear down.

Here's a little tidbit ... an example of the thinking of a leftist activist appointed to the Court by Bill Clinton. Talk about your typical big government, centralized-control, authoritarian activists.

It was in response to Obama's vague answer to the question of whether or not the federal government has the authoriuty to force people to buy cell phones, eat broccoli, purchase burial insurance, etc.



“I would have thought that your answer [to] can the government, in fact, require you to buy cell phones or buy burials that, if we propose comparable situations, if we have, for example, a uniform United States system of paying for every burial such as Medicare Burial, Medicaid Burial, Ship Burial, ERISA Burial and Emergency Burial beside the side of the road, and Congress wanted to rationalize that system, wouldn't the answer be: Yes, of course, they could.

“And the same with the computers, or the same with the cell phones, if you're driving by the side of the highway and there is a federal emergency service, just as you say you have to buy certain mufflers for your car that don't hurt the environment."
- Stephen Breyer



Do you see why we CAN'T have any more people like this appointed to interpret the Constitution?

These people want to control each and every aspect of your lives.

And liberals are in SHOCK that no one can see how wonderful their utopian fantasies are! They literally don't SEE the validity of the rational, legal, Constitutional arguments against their dream.

They're STILL babbling .... "but, but ... what about the interstate commerce clause" and "Yeah, but the general welfare clause" means ..."

A decision STILL must be made and it's MIND-BOGGLING that we are hanging by a string, but at least these weak arguments were exposed in the proper arena.

It's telling, also, how those on the left, who jump at any chance to overthrow the will of the people by running to activist courts, suddenly are whining for the Supreme Court to butt out.

COLLECTIVE COGNITIVE DISSONANCE!

Like I said ... so many treachable moments ... if you're interested in learning.

I'm assuming that, by our last discussion, I'm not intruding.. . and understanding that I have never been behind the PPACA...

First off, yes - it was argued poorly; but that is largely because the entire argument on individual mandates has been an absurd round of semantics and euphemisms. It's still a duck. Dress it how you like.

Second, worked into a funk? All the ones I listened to seemed to think the oral arguments to be somewhat humorous. The parts I got to hear were pretty funny, or as funny as the Supreme Court gets.

There are parts to the PPACA that are GREAT, but as it went through it was an all or nothing deal. As a whole it is less than great.

The system needed and still needs a lot of fixing. Leaving it to businesses that have interest in profit over morality and the general health and care of their "clients" (many / most who actually have very little say in what they are provided due to the absurd system by which most of us get insurance and healthcare)is disgusting. Our current system is disgraceful.

Hopefully they will keep the parts that were actually good and sensibly toss the rest.

I wonder how this will impact Mr Romney's plan in Massachusetts.

I wonder, if the government is so bad at issues regarding healthcare why is it good enough for all the member of the Court and Congress and all of the military and veterans, but not for anyone else...

More people in the US are covered by government healthcare of some sort or another. We do not, and have not had for a long time, a purely private health care system.
