ObamaCare: Supreme Court may postpone ruling till 2016

This morning's newspapers report an ominous development in the ObamaCare litigation, now pending in the U.S. Supreme Court: The Court posted a seemingly minor but potentially important administrative change that reminds us that it could postpone a final ruling on the constitutionality of ObamaCare until the middle of 2016!  Specifically, the high Court increased the time it will devote to hearing oral arguments on whether the mandate to purchase health insurance is a "tax" for purposes of something called the Tax Anti-Injunction Act (26 U.S.C. § 7421(a)).

Team Obama changes its story -- again! -- on whether health mandate is a tax

This morning, reversing position yet again, the Obama Administration testified in the House Budget Committee that the ObamaCare health care mandate is not a tax. President Obama's acting budget director, Jeffrey Zients, was asked by Republican Congressman Scott Garrett of New Jersey whether the IRS-collected penalty on those who don't comply with the health care law's mandate to purchase government-controlled health insurance is a tax. Zients replied, "No."

Will the Supreme Court Strike Down All of ObamaCare?

This week, a federal judge in Pennsylvania struck down the individual mandate -- the linchpin provision of the President's controversial health care law. So have other judges.  But this judge did something more: He struck down several parts of the law, not just the mandate.    Which revives the hope -- however slight -- that we might yet win a total victory in the courts.

Another US Court Upholds Obama's Health Care Mandate

Yesterday's decision proves once again we cannot count on the courts to overturn ObamaCare.    On a 2 to 1 decision, the US Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the constitutionality of the individual mandate -- the ObamaCare mandate requiring everyone to purchase government-controlled health insurance.
