The Hot Theory on How the Supreme Court Gets to a 6-3 Vote to Uphold Obamacare
Let’s talk about the Supreme Court. I am fascinated to watch the media, folks. What is happening today at the United States Supreme Court is what has happened for 222 years. There’s nothing special about today. There’s nothing unique. The court is doing nothing today that it hasn’t done since its inception. But if you read the media you would think that the vote the court’s taking today is unprecedented. Also, various stories, media obviously begging for a leak on the vote. There hasn’t ever been one that anybody could recall. Even Roe v. Wade didn’t leak, and that decision wasn’t announced for months after it was reached.
But the media, here’s a story, this is Associated Press: “Justices Meet Friday to Vote on Health Care Case — While the rest of us have to wait until June, the justices of the Supreme Court will know the likely outcome of the historic health care case by the time they go home this weekend.” Well, of course. They’re voting on it. Is it unfair that the justices know and we don’t know? “While the rest of us have to wait until June, the justices will know the likely outcome.” Well, of course, duh. They are the likely outcome.
“After months of anticipation, thousands of pages of briefs and more than six hours of arguments, the justices will vote on the fate of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul in under an hour Friday morning. They will meet in a wood-paneled conference room on the court’s main floor. No one else will be present.” You know, folks, it is hilarious and it’s pathetic how the media are all aflutter about how the court is gonna vote on Obamacare today and then not announce their ruling ’til the end of June. It’s not fair. It just isn’t right. They know and we don’t. We have to wait until June.
