    This is will be the biggest case to go to the SCOTUS in decades. Maybe, the biggest since Roe vs. Wade and Brown vs. Board of Education. I think this case will be right up there with those in the history books.

    Like I said earlier...they chose to not appeal to the full court and go straight to SCOTUS. Do I have to do everything for you, CNN? haha

    We in Virginia have an arrogant and reckless AG named Cuccinelli who since getting into office has worked feverishly to reverse had won civil rights while pushing religious & social intolerance.
    Cuccinelli is the ring-master of the politically charged circus of clowns trying to take away power from the citizens and return power to the healthcare insurance company's death panels.

    The sooner the better. Anyone who thinks they can handicap the Supremes should quit their day job and start taking bets on their decision. Anything is possible.

    Can't wait to see what the Roberts/Alito/Scalia/Thomas cabal does with this case. Maybe the Heritage Foundation will send them and their spouses on an around the world junket to see how other third world health systems work. Remember the key words of the Founding Fathers, as interpreted by these legal giants: "I have mine and thy shall touchest it not." Its also ironic that it is announced that the Affordable Care Act will be reviewed by the Supreme Court on the same day that it is reported that premiums jumped almost ten percent in the last year, with more on the way. Guess who will be applying maximum pressure to destroy the only plan to reduce health care costs?
