Poll: How Do You Think The Supreme Court Will Rule On 'Obamacare'?

The controversial law has been the subject of recent TV commercials, political speeches and protests.

Since everyone else is weighing in, we want to know what you think.

There is nothing activist about upholding an existing law; are you accusing Chief Justice John Roberts of acting with liberal bias? Seriously? An activist ruling would be Citizens United - the case before the court involved a narrow issue, namely whether a propaganda film could be aired within a narrow window of time before an election. Contrary to standard procedure, the court instructed the litigants to re-argue a much broader case and overturned about 100 years of stare decisis in their final decision.

Reaction from a person on another board at hearing the decision: "I cried. My uterine cancer is back, and on the off chance I survive, or decide to treat it, I would never, ever have been able to get private insurance again. There aren't words for how grateful I am."

So making people pay a tax for benefits that they can't afford is acceptable but requiring those same people to have legal ID to vote is racism?

Making people pay a tax if they "choose" not to buy health insurance is acceptable because we all end up paying when the uninsured go to the emergency room because the clinic won't see them without payment, or because they wait so long because they can't afford to go to the doctor, that their condition becomes critical, and the costs skyrocket. Voter ID is not racism, it is voter suppression, plain and simple.

Will you support a full retraction of the Requirement that anyone who shows up at an Emergency Room must be treated? Then if a child or adult shows up to an ER with no insurance and cannot prove that they can pay out of their own pocket that the Hospital can refuse to service them - or if they do the Hospital must do it as a Charity cause and cannot raise rates to cover those costs? And if a Hospital refuses to help them that person is wheeled out to the side walk and if they die they die. And no, I am not kidding because unless you and others are ready to get rid of the Health Care Freeloaders Mandate that is already in place then I am sorry but people have to have either insurance or pay the penalty.
