ObamaCare Petition Now At Supreme Court

Although other petitions have landed there, Gabe says, this is the one the Court will most likely accept.

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) stole a march on the Obama Administration this morning by filing a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court appealing the 11th Circuitís Obamacare decision.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) had announced on Monday that it was not going to ask all 11 judges of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to review en banc the August 12 decision of a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit that found the individual mandate unconstitutional. This opened up a path to an appeal by DOJ to the Supremes.

However, with this petition, the NFIB jumped ahead of Eric Holderís slow-moving DOJ (which until Monday had done everything it could to slow-walk this case filed by 26 states and the NFIB). The NFIB is obviously not appealing the three-judge panelís opinion about the unconstitutionality of the individual mandate. But the NFIB is appealing the portion of the panelís decision that held that the unconstitutional individual mandate could be severed from the Obamacare legislation.

Either way the Supreme Court rules, it's bad for Obama. If it strikes ObamaCare down, it's a big problem, because then he has to run for re-election promising his base that he'll pass some kind of health care measure in his second term.

And everyone not in that base is not giving him a second bite at the apple, when he screwed the first shot up so badly. And worse yet, did not listen to the people while doing so.

How could he appease the public on that? "This time, I promise I won't completely ignore you and shut you out of the discussion"?

Few would buy his promises to be more inclusive or bipartisan this time around.

Obama would risk derisive jeers even saying anything like this.

Vote For Barack Obama

Remember that time he burned your house down? Yeah, well he promises this time he'll only light three matches at a time.
