The Supreme Court has decided to rule on the Obamacare contraceptive mandate.

Remember, Obamacare does not have what lawyers call a severability clause. If they rule any part of the law unconstitutional, without this clause they are required to rule the entire law unconstitutional.

Of course, these rules existed when we followed rules. Nowadays, who knows?

    Lets se how committed the Chief Justice is now with his interpretation of the Constitutionality of the AHA. And as an additional reminder why this diabolical law must go I offer the story below.

    Don’t worry, I’m sure good ole Chief Justice John Roberts will be the deciding 5-4 vote on this and his deciding opinion will nebulously state that the word “contraceptive” is in reality the word “prophylactic” thereby making ACA constitutional because it’s good governance to be “pro” and not “contra” or some such silly logic. He will go on further to declare Obamacare “necessarily” constitutional by allowing the taxation of all sex acts instead of originally taxing Americans with the mandated birth control rider fee.
    This is constitutional law Obama-style. Get used to it, because this is how tyrannical governments are run.

    He will have this case and the case filed related to the stripping out of a veterans bill filled with the ACA in the Senate to rule on. Two, IMO strong cases that demonstrate the un-Constitutional nature of the law. If he fails to redeem himself, and you may be correct that he will not, then we will have to wait for 2014 and if not then 2016, and so on and so on.

    If this continues then the government actually owns the people. Diabolical.
