Supreme Court grants victory to President Obama, upholding constitutionality of 2010 healthcare law

Supreme Court grants victory to President Obama, upholding constitutionality of 2010 healthcare law.

The Court has spoken. The HHS Mandate stands, at least so far. An enormous number of lawsuits against the Mandate are wending their way through the courts. For those of us who oppose this Mandate, the message is simple and clear: Game On!

    Ah, Rebecca, I wish I had any confidence left in the courts, or the national Republicans, Maybe I’m wrong but, I no longer see any limits to the Federal government.

      I know. But we have to fight on. As Lincoln said, “The war is forced on us.”

        I agree, just sometimes it’s difficult. Thank God for friends like you. And it may well be the singular thing that defeats Obama.

        See you in the front line.

          See ya.

    Seems a very close decision, and hard not to see the politics in it – the Clinton and Obama nominees voted party line – that’s how it looks from here. But yes, don’t lose heart and carry on the fight.

      Jessica, that’s a very astute observation. The Court has become politicized and polarized like most else in America today. The 5/4 split you saw reflects the cultural biases of the justices themselves.

        I am praying for your cause, and that right prevails. I know you will stay strong in Christ.

          Thank you Jessica!

    In his first TV interview as POTUS, Obama rejected the idea that this was a tax – now he seems happy to admit it was. Was he lying back then?

      I don’t know about this interview. But he also said that he was opposed to same-sex marriage, AND he promised in writing that the Affordable Health Care Act would not force people to pay for abortions, AND he also promised the religious groups would be exempted from doing things that violate their teachings.

    I am sure if you check you’ll find he did; another in a long list of broken promises. I have posted some prayerful thoughts for you and other faithful American Catholics on my blog.

      I never doubted you for a minute! Thank you for your posts on this.

      Jessica, I just looked at your blog. Thank you for your solidarity with us. I am going to reproduce the verse you chose … beautiful.

      1 Peter 1:6-9 In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

    Thanks for looking at and liking my blog post “What Satisfies a Hungry Heart?” I read your “About” page and a couple of your posts with their comments. You have a lot to say, and you’re ‘right-on’. We need more people like you in our government. May you be encouraged and strengthened in the Lord daily. Tricia
