Vice President Biden predicts Supreme Court won't rule health care law unconstitutional

Full story: Washington Post

"I'm not going to speculate about something I don't believe will happen," Biden said on CBS' "Face the Nation" when asked by host Bob Schieffer what might happen if the entire health care law is thrown out by the court this summer.

The USSC would be doing taxpayers a huge disservice taking the Health Care away along with harming 60 million uninsured.

Americans pay by far much more now for uninsured than they would with a Universal Plan to treat in a preventative way but some don't want Americans to know that fact.

As for forcing each American to carry insurance, that will be struck down. It goes against civil liberties. If some Americans want to simply die if they get sick, that is their choice but not their choice to decide that for others.

The USSC should strike down the necessity for all Americans to be insured and then Americans can sign a legal document so if they get sick or need an ER, they will be turned away and left to die.

As for the economics of the health plan, it is sound.

Obama can go above the USSC if they attempt to strike the whole thing down by considering health care a national security risk and be done with it that way. I would do that if they struck the whole thing down. He has that power and once done, cannot be reversed by a future administration.

Obama's mistake was looking out for all Americans including the ignorant and doing so, that one area goes against civil liberties. That will need to come down. Some Americans want others to die but it will be them who die lacking healthcare instead when all is said and done. I say good. Let rebels kick bucket.

Joe Biden doesn't know when his fly is open and he's going to comment on rulings of the SCOTUS?

Tell me who pays for all the illegals and poor people that are using the public hospitals now? They will have insurance now, but the tax payers still pay.

It's called balance of powers. You on the other hand support a rogue executive banch.

I go by facts of the constitution since I know those through College. I also know opinions can often seem like facts but my opinions or those of others mean very little when it comes to the constitution.

I posted facts. Obama is wrong about forcing people to carry insurance to be constitutional and the USSC has gone outside of their area on most of his health care plan.

Did anyone here know the President can fire all the Justices of the USSC if he wanted? The VP of former President Bush speaks out a lot and so does Newt and both of them said as President they would use that power to fire some in the USSC but for different reasons than this topic.

Obama used to be a constitutional lawyer and teacher so he knows better but he is a politician and will lie. Every President has lied. Reagan lied a lot and I liked Reagan and love Nancy. I like our First Lady we have now because she stays out of politics for the most part unless it is close to an election. Laura Bush did the same. I like her too. Hillary was too aggressive as First Lady going into politics but she had political motives for herself as we see now.

There will be universal care.

Who might that be with the household income? Right. Kagan is as pure as the driven snow and Sotomayer is open minded. Right? BWAHAHAHAHA!!!! You meant four rogue justices.

Obama doesn't know Constitutional Law if he'ds warning the court to NOT overturn his bill becase [people would lose insurance.
This is a Constitutional matter, not brownie points for the boy President. Now, let's hear all of those Constitutional facts you brag about.

Neither Supreme Court Justices, nor Article II Federal judges can be fired. They are appointed for life.

The can be impeached if there is grounds, but not fired.
