House GOP leaders prepare for high court health care decision

Washington (CNN) - House Republican leaders know that immediately after the Supreme Court rules on the health care law Thursday, they'll need to answer questions about what happens next on Capitol Hill - and they're ready.

At Wednesday's weekly meeting with rank-and-file members, House Speaker John Boehner announced that he and GOP Conference Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, have designated two top House Republicans to lead a rapid-response team, according to two GOP sources familiar with the discussion.

    Silence DoGood

    Of course the GOP advisory to "not spike the ball" means "If we win, be cruel and SPIKE THE BALL".


    Any American with an IQ above room temperature was well aware of that fact, so we're not surprised.

  2. Vote the Tea Party OUT in 2012

    I am guessing that they will uphold most of it but strike down the mandate part...which means then the Dems will go after single payer again. If they strike down the whole thing and the vote is 5-4 with the conservatives and the liberal wing split then it will appear to be along party lines and that makes NO court look good. Plus the fact Justice Thomas' wife came out publically against the act,,,even raising money to do so thus we know how he's going to vote. He IMO should do what Justice Kagen did on the AZ case and recuse himself...but of course he won't.

    Whatever happens, let's not forget....
    Pre-existing conditions: people not being able to get insurance or even worse, been paying for years and then being cut off when u really need it.
    Out of control costs for our parents that many of us are helping to pay.
    Keeping our kids on our insurance longer.
    Just insane criminal costs in general that we already couldn't afford.... And they want to be able to continue to raise prices to their hearts content. So... If it gets changed, we will have major issues with the system still.
