(CNN) - A leading senator is urging the Supreme Court to "do the right thing" and uphold the constitutionality of the sweeping health care reform law championed by President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats.
In a floor speech Monday, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, directly addressed Chief Justice John Roberts, urging him in a sharply partisan tone to keep the law, passed in 2010, in place.
"do the right thing" would be to subpoena, prosecute and sentence every person who signed the Obamacare law. This was a crime against the Unites States.
It would be a tragedy if the SCOTUS were to toss the entire ACA. The insurance industry has a grip around the throats of Americans; they drop people, turn people away. The ACA stops those practices. Allows folks to keep their kids on their policies longer, which I never understood why it was prevented in the first place.
The best part of the ACA is yet to come. Folks will be getting a refund check on their premiums if the insurers spent less than 80% on providing health care. Insurers are not allowed to keep more than 20% of the premiums they collect.
This man is an absolute idiot. He is directly responsible for much of the gridlock we have today and he is telling us to give up our freedom and money so Obama can be reelected. Americans want a president that is competent and not corrupt and not beholden to the corrupt union bosses totally unlike the current Kenyan village idiot one we have.
You're a day late and a dollar short, moonbat. The decision was made within a couple of days after the hearings. Only the opinions are being written now.
I just hope they read the bill unlike the DEMs who made the comment just pass the bill then we will read it to see what it says thanks Nancy.
Good Luck with that. The Supreme Court already has their decision made for them by their corporate masters.
