HERE IS PART OF OBAMA'S RESPONSE:
I think it is important and I think the American people understand, and I think the justices should understand, that in the absence of an individual mandate, you cannot have a mechanism to insure that people with preexisting conditions can actually get health care,” he said.AS THE BRILLIANT MICHAEL CARVIN POINTED OUT, IT IS TRUE THAT PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS CANNOT BE TAKEN-ON BY HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES UNLESS THEY ALSO TAKE ON PEOPLE WHO ARE HEALTHY AND YOUNG AND HAVE PREVIOUSLY CHOSEN TO BE UNINSURED (BECAUSE IT'S A SENSIBLE ECONOMIC DECISION), AND THAT THEREFORE THESE PEOPLE HAVE TO BE MANDATED TO BUY INSURANCE AND IN ORDER TO PUT MORE MONEY INTO THE SYSTEM THAT WILL BE SPENT ON THE FOLKS WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITONS.
THE MAJORITY OF THE COURT WILL RULE THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DOESN'T HAVE THE CONSTITUTIONAL POWER TO MANDATE THESE PEOPLE TO BUY ANYTHING - WHEREAS STATES DO, AND THEY WILL POINT OUT THAT ROMNEYCARE PROVES THAT STATES CAN DO THIS IF THEY SO WISH.
IOW: WHEN OBAMA ARGUES THAT OBAMACARE AND ITS FEDERAL MANDATE IS THE ONLY WAY TO DEAL WITH THIS PROBLEM, HE IS NOT ONLY ARGUING FOR A POWER THE CONSTITUTION EXPLICITLY DENIES THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, HE IS ALSO FACTUALLY WRONG.
AND ROMNEYCARE PROVES THIS.
PREDICTION: WHEN THE SCOTUS MAJORITY OPINION STRIKING DOWN OBAMACRE IS READ, MANY CONSERVATIVES WHO ATTACKED ROMNEY OVER ROMNEYCARE WILL EAT CROW AND KISS HIS ASS.
