    This is not a thread of the merits, nor cons of the Health Care Act (that we need to vote yes and read it later).

    The constitutionality of it is before the court.

    It passed, and is now before the Supreme Court challenged.

    Will it be totaly overturned, and toss out the whole law?

    Will it be approved? Will The Supreme Court upholds the entire law?

    Will The Supreme Court punt?

    Will the Supreme Court strikes down the individual mandate and keeps everything else?

    Please I ask no opinions of merit or cons, just what do you believe the decision will be?

    It will be upheld but sent back to congress for "refining".

    In a 5 to 4 vote with Kennedy being the swing, it passes. There will be some fine tuning afterwards but it will be upheld.

    Great thought, but I am not comfortable with polls yet sir. Still have one punch on my rookie new person ticket.

    You can, no offense taken if you do, or someone else does.

    I hope it gets completely thrown out and a real attempt at healthcare reform takes place. The government has no right to force people to purchase anything. If it stays, then what will we be forced to buy next?

    I think it will pass with Kennedy and Roberts siding with the U.S. government.

    Yes, we will wait til june because after today's vote , the opinions need to be written, then passed to all judges, some may write their own opinions too , at which time some could/would change their votes, and then when they are ready the public is notified.

    And until then it is just fun to speculate and ponder.

    I will say I am 75% certain they will find the mandate unconstitutional and as a result will strike down the law as a whole considering it lacks a proper sever ability clause. Many good points were brought up by the justices from the audio I heard, most of which, had poor or no response by the government's lawyers.

    Personally I don't see how they can't strike this law down. To find it constitutional would be spitting in the face of what our founding fathers intended for this country.
