Obamacare - Health Care Law - #3282 - Rush Limbaugh: Where We Stand on Obamacare (2) All In: Department of Justice Appeals Obamacare Ruling to Supreme Court - Hot Air (3) Obamacare Has Arrived in the Supreme Court

RUSH: Now the health care situation. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the individual mandate, but they left the rest of Obamacare intact. Now, I'm pretty sure that is different from previous rulings in other courts. I'm talking here about the 11th Circuit. So it was thought, it was speculated that the regime would ask for the entire 11-judge court to hear the case rather than just the three-judge panel that decided. And then the regime shocked everybody or I think shocked everybody, "No, no, no, you know what, we're not even gonna mess around with the 11th anymore, we're just gonna go straight to SCOTUS," straight to the Supreme Court. And I said, now, wait just a second here. That tells me that they think that they're gonna win this at the Supreme Court. I frankly think, folks, and I have no problem telling you this, I think they're gonna lose it at the Supreme Court. But that's just me. I think Obama is gonna get paid back big time for his dissing of the Supreme Court at that State of the Union show. I think his moment is coming. This health care bill when it finally -- but I'm way ahead of things here so I don't even want to go there any further than I have. It's just an opinion based on no knowledge.  Read more.........

All In: Department of Justice Has Appealed Obamacare Ruling to Supreme Court - Hot Air - Here’s the DOJ press release. It’s a comfort to know that we’re now just nine months away from our super-president, Anthony Kennedy, telling us whether this thing is illegal or not.  The administration seems convinced that proceedings before the court will play out in its favor — with a speedy vindication by the high court and a chance to settle all of the uncertainties so the law can finally move forward…  A quick ruling would give more confidence to businesses, the insurance industry and consumers that they’ll know what to expect with the law, the official said — citing recent findings that at least 1 million young adults ages 19 to 26 have already gained coverage through a provision that lets them stay on their parents’ insurance.  And by going to the Supreme Court now, the Obama administration addresses a painful practical reality: A second Obama term is no longer as safe a bet as it was a few months ago. So if the Supreme Court doesn’t take up the health reform law this coming year, it may get the case with a Republican in the White House — and a Department of Justice that doesn’t lift a finger to defend the law in court… Read more.........

Obamacare Has Arrived in the Supreme Court - Heritage Foundation - The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) stole a march on the Obama Administration this morning by filing a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court appealing the 11th Circuit’s Obamacare decision.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) had announced on Monday that it was not going to ask all 11 judges of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to review en banc the August 12 decision of a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit that found the individual mandate unconstitutional. This opened up a path to an appeal by DOJ to the Supremes.  However, with this petition, the NFIB jumped ahead of Eric Holder’s slow-moving DOJ (which until Monday had done everything it could to slow-walk this case filed by 26 states and the NFIB). The NFIB is obviously not appealing the three-judge panel’s opinion about the unconstitutionality of the individual mandate. But the NFIB is appealing the portion of the panel’s decision that held that the unconstitutional individual mandate could be severed from the Obamacare legislation.  Read more......  Article contributed by Steve Peters.
