The good news

As David Sirota points out, if the courts knock out the insurance mandate, it makes the bill more progressive. But everyone’s writing as if it can be separated from the rest of the bill, and from what I’ve read, that’s not a given.

On the upside, the insurance companies are freaking out at the thought of losing the mandate, so there’s that!

  1. ” the insurance companies are freaking out at the thought of losing the mandate, so there‚Äôs that!”

    Don’t worry, John Roberts will remedy that and much more besides. It’s his job after all, to “interpret” the law.

  2. And, again, if Elena Kagen recuses herself (as she said she would during confirmation hearings), all the conservatives need is a tie.

    Can Roberts choose the case which he will agree to bring before the Surpremes? If so, will he chose this one? He’s more of an “activist” judge than his predecessor — and what’s to stop him?
