Are republicans mad enough to kill Obamacare like this?

Let's cut to the chase: Affordable custody still exists and, as things stand, will continue to exist until the supreme court tells something or the other about this ruling political decision of this ideological hatchetman by a judge. The question for us right now is really what the Supreme Court will do. So let's answer it. Only before the decision is taken to the Supreme Court will it be reviewed by the entire fifth circle in New Orleans. Suppose at the moment that the fifth circle, full of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi conservatives, maintains Friday's decision. It has 10 judges appointed by Republican presidents (including four of Donald Trump) and only five nominated by Democrats. Probably, Pro-Obamacare litigants will appeal to Supremes, who seems to have three basic options. One, they can decide not to hear it and let the fifth circle's decision stand. Two, they can maintain the Obamacare suspension. Three, they can turn the fifth circle and save Obamacare. At the moment, I bet &#821 1; and of course I hope – that the court will choose alternative three. John Roberts thinks I will join the four Liberals when I turn down this decision. The legal basis is simple and relates to the fact that the referee does not recognize the congress's intention to treat separate parts of the law separately ("understandability" in the word). On the team this decision should be chosen 9-0. If you missed the New York Times edited Saturday by Jonathan Adler and Abbe…

Let’s cut to the chase: Affordable custody still exists and, as things stand, will continue to exist until the supreme court tells something or the other about this ruling political decision of this ideological hatchetman by a judge. The question for us right now is really what the Supreme Court will do. So let’s answer it.

Only before the decision is taken to the Supreme Court will it be reviewed by the entire fifth circle in New Orleans. Suppose at the moment that the fifth circle, full of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi conservatives, maintains Friday’s decision. It has 10 judges appointed by Republican presidents (including four of Donald Trump) and only five nominated by Democrats. Probably, Pro-Obamacare litigants will appeal to Supremes, who seems to have three basic options.

One, they can decide not to hear it and let the fifth circle’s decision stand. Two, they can maintain the Obamacare suspension. Three, they can turn the fifth circle and save Obamacare.

At the moment, I bet &#821

1; and of course I hope – that the court will choose alternative three. John Roberts thinks I will join the four Liberals when I turn down this decision. The legal basis is simple and relates to the fact that the referee does not recognize the congress’s intention to treat separate parts of the law separately (“understandability” in the word).

On the team this decision should be chosen 9-0. If you missed the New York Times edited Saturday by Jonathan Adler and Abbe Gluck, read it. It is unanswered. Adler and Gluck have both been involved in ACA trials-Adler against, and Gluck for. You would think that they could not agree on something like this, but they do. They clearly explain why this decision is lawless, and they leave this hack judge’s entrances on the floor.

So yes, it should be 9-0. But it’s not likely to be. At least three fair-Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch-have rarely shown any evidence of being anything but Republican party operatives. Brett Kavanaugh we do not know much yet. Adler and Gluck note that his writings would suggest that he reject his judge’s reasoning. But we have all seen this movie before, not we?

That takes us to Roberts. He has shown consciousness in the past (in the first Obamacare case) about the Court’s position and the real consequences of its decisions. Once upon a time, he even seems to acknowledge that there is such a thing as the general welfare that conservatives naturally despise.

And even though he does not care about millions of people with cancer, he cares about the reputation of his court, which will be destroyed if a majority follows the reasoning of this judge and makes a clear political decision. Destroyed. At the moment, it is voting around 50-40, agreeing not to be approved. I have no doubt that these numbers should turn around and stop turning for a long time. Roberts cares about this.

And it is right for justice to care about it. They are not God on Mt. Sinai. They make decisions that affect life, which speed or hinder justice, and they should care about. I wish they cared more so that they would not agree with exclusions that “racism is basically away from electoral politics so that we no longer need a voting act” (no, they have not gone away with the whole law yet, but it’s almost safe).

The mention of VRA actually reminds me that I could be dead wrong in my optimism. Perhaps Roberts does not care. Perhaps he can only see it as another instance of calling balls and strikes. Maintaining this decision would make a strike of an increase that landed in the fifth line, but who knows?

And of course I assume that all four of today’s liberals are still there. What happens if, to express it gently, does the fate have other plans?

So the court may uphold this judge and abolish Obamacare on this thin ground. What then? Obviously, I hope that does not happen. But I confess that the little devil on my other shoulder would love to see what happens to these bastards if they do this. They would pay for this for 20 years.

They will not get any better. There is nothing better, at least in the terms they are discussing. It’s only worse and meaningful, and they started already on the road with last year’s tax bill, which eliminated the penalty imposed on people who did not go out and bought healthcare.

They have no plans to insure the uninsured. They do not want to insure the uninsured. Oh, maybe, if you are basically healthy and reasonably good (which makes you statistically more likely to become white, which is just a coincidence, honestly!). But if people are sick and poor, forget about it. Republicans do not want to insure these people. They think these people are moochers, as Mitt Romney famously said when he thought no one recorded him. If they die, they die. Reduce the excess population, as a famous Republican once expressed it during an engaged Christian era.

I have never seen more nauseated hypocrisy in 30 years writing about these people than we witnessed this election period with Republican candidates who drove around affecting their devotion to people with existing conditions even though they tried to join a Congress voted for to abolish Obamacare 70 times and will continue to do it about and when Republicans have their way; despite the fact that some candidates, especially Missouri Josh Hawley, were parties to the trial itself, which was held on Friday.

Fortunately, most voters did not buy it, even though Hawley was chosen by a depressing big margin (Missourians, when he voted to abolish Obamacare, will you figure out he lied?). And if that trial succeeds, these people have no idea what kind of anger it will unleash. No clue.

And they lay the foundation for a massive blowback. I have not supported Medicare for all, just for practical reasons, but if they do, they will be heading to Medicare for All within a few years to convert me and millions of others to followers. [19659002] For many years, Republicans have been able to hide to some extent behind the complexity of the team. Most people do not really understand why it’s a lie when a republic says that he or she supports covering people with pre-existing conditions (because they oppose the specific measures that must be taken to provide such coverage). But they catch on.

And if this decision says, people will know. They will know that the Republican party blew up the healthcare system. No party has ever done anything like this in our history. Imagine Republicans from the 1950s who remove social security, or the 1920s Republicans who abolish labor laws or democrats from the 1880s (yes, it would have been democrats then) find a small way to renegrate on black people’s freedom from the server.

All these things are unthinkable. But with today’s GOP nothing is unthinkable. John Roberts, we are watching you.
