    And if the Supreme Court is just another partisan branch of government, but unlike the other two branches, unanswerable to the citizens of this nation, then they cannot be trusted to impartially adjudicate disputes.

    Oh, lotsa luck, Barry.
    So you think the justices decide cases in order to get social revenge?

    It has already taken more than a breath. And why would you want people to go without health care?

    No, not really. For the record, I don't think anyone should recuse themselves from ruling on the case, either. But judges are people. Justices are even better people, but there is always the chance that deep down in their subconscious, some Justice may be thinking..........

    That would be true. But no one is saying the Supreme Court is just another partisan branch of government. No one at all.

    Actually, I think that's true. I think there will come some sort of single payer service available. Some day. There is simply too much pressure in that direction to resist forever.

    But it ain't gonna be 2500 pages long.

    Is someone going without health care? I thought that's why Mexicans risked their lives to get over here.

    Obama ignored the courts when they ruled to reopen off shore oil drilling in the gulf, what makes people think he will obey the courts rulings over healthcare?
    He will continue down his path unhindered, there are other examples of his disregard for the courts out there.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
