U.S. Supreme Court to Rule on Obama’s Health Care Law Next Year. Decision Should Come Before Election

"The nation’s highest court will weigh in on President Obama’s landmark health care law in the midst of the 2012 election," the New York Daily News reports, adding, "Courts around the country have issued conflicting rulings on the constitutionality of ObamaCare, requiring the showdown announced Monday [Nov. 14, 2011] by the U.S. Supreme Court."

The story continues, "Arguments before the justices — five appointed by Republican presidents, four by Democrats — are scheduled for March, with a decision likely by late June, just over four months before Election Day. Key to most challenges is the law’s individual mandate, which will require that all Americans buy health insurance starting in 2014."

Most of the Republican candidates for president have said they would make what they call "ObamaCare" an issue in the presidential campaign.

  1. Last week, Scalia and Thomas were invited guests to the Federalist Society’s 2011 Annual Dinner. A highly conservative organization whose sole purpose appears to be to regress our nation, the Federalist Society not only asked the two Supreme Court judges to attend, but placed their names on publicity materials and gave them speaking opportunities as well. Sitting at different tables, Scalia and Thomas were only separated by the table of Paul Clement – the attorney who will likely argue the case against the health care bill in front of the Supreme Court, and the man who got his start clerking for Scalia himself. If this isn’t the most outrageous conflict of interest, then I don’t know what is.
