Question by Steve: If the Supreme Court rules that Obamacare is Constitutional, what will happen when the states?
that have so far refused to more forward on creating their health insurance exchanges, request more time to create them? They’re going to say that they didn’t have enough time between the ruling, and the January 1, 2014 deadline to create the exchanges.

Should they be given extra time, or should they be told “too bad, so sad”?

Best answer:

Answer by Liberals Are Weak
Court will not hold it up

But in any cause if the Republicans win the senate in 2013 (23 Dems up for re-election) than they can use the same procedure “reconciliation” to kill Obamacare that Reid used to implement it. Killing the filibuster and require only 51 votes. They can also block appointments and funding

And if a Republican wins the Presidency he or she can use the same president that Obama created by giving a blanket voucher of exemption to all that asks for 99 years DOne and Done

San Diego, California (PRWEB) July 03, 2012

Daniel Gilleon, a San Diego trial lawyer and a partner in the Mitchell | Gilleon Law Firm, appeared on Fox 5 TV San Diegos morning news broadcast on June 28, 2012 to discuss the United States Supreme Courts decision regarding whether or not the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as healthcare reform or Obamacare, was Constitutional and therefore able to be legally implemented. Mr. Gilleon appeared on the broadcast live as the decision was being announced and provided his feedback and perspective.

Specifically, Mr. Gilleon appeared on the Fox 5 TV San Diego broadcast with Attorney Gary Aguirre, and the two attorneys discussed some of the legal issues brought about by this Supreme Court decision as well as some of the potential reaction that Americans could witness in the coming days and weeks. This discussion was held as the decision was being released to the public. The case is officially known as NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT BUSINESS ET AL. v. SEBELIUS, SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, ET AL., Case No. 11-393 that was argued on March 26, 27 and 28, 2012.

After some initial confusion on the part of the broadcast team regarding whether or not the Supreme Court had upheld what is known as the individual mandate portion of the healthcare reform law, the team corrected itself and announced that the Supreme Court had in fact upheld the individual mandate and the law as a whole.

Mr. Gilleon provided insight into the decision by stating that when the bill originally was signed into law, most legal experts expected that the law would be found to be Constitutional. However, he continued, a federal judge issued a ruling not long thereafter that found the law unconstitutional, and that this opinion appeared to sway the public.

Mr. Gilleon continued on to state that the specifics of the ruling seemed to state that this ruling held that failing to purchase healthcare coverage would not be viewed as a penalty, but would rather be dealt with as a tax. Finally, Mr. Gilleon offered his opinion that while there will likely be many people who would be unhappy with this decision, there would also be many people who would benefit from it.
