Yeah, I agree that it is a hard call until June.
They can eliminate one aspect of the law, like the compulsory requirement ( which IS unconstitutional ), but then implement the rest with a "opt out" clause.Terje was right.

To re craft the law, without the mandate, is the job of the legislature, not the judiciary.it's all young and fun and skiing and then one day you login and it's relationship advice, gomer glacier tours and geezers.

Severability was left out because after Kennedy got sick, the dems couldn't railroad through anything totalitarian thing they wanted and had to cobble together a steaming pile of crap for obamas signature legislation

Don't know who said this but pretty much nailed it IMO:
Let me get this straight . . . We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, Which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!
