I believe this is good in a real sense when the whole mess is resolved. In the end, it’s going to come down to five votes out of nine determining to what degree that hundred year old document, the Constitution, can be bent and folded to fit whatever law congress passes. When being forced to buy a private service or product can be deemed a “tax” by those said nine judges, I’m not very confident.
I followed the link and got an ‘account suspended” page. Can you elaborate, so we actually know what you’re talking about? or check the link. THanks!
Ok, I tried again, link fixed. DC court told HHS to fix the mandate:
Today, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. handed Wheaton College and Belmont Abbey College a major victory in their challenges to the HHS mandate. Last summer, two lower courts had dismissed the Colleges’ cases as premature. Today, the appellate court reinstated those cases, and ordered the Obama Administration to report back every 60 days—starting in mid-February—until the Administration makes good on its promise to issue a new rule that protects the Colleges’ religious freedom. The new rule must be issued by March 31, 2013.
Yeah yeah yeah. After the Obamacare decision, I have no faith whatsoever in the Supreme Court. The Constitution means whatever five people can say it means, whether it’s plausible or not. So these little victories in the Appeals Court mean very little to me now.
