The members of the U.S. Supreme Court will vote on the future of Obamacare today. This is the first of several votes that determines those who initially support the oppressive measure, and those who don't. Today's vote is non-binding, and is held to assess the various initial positions of the justices. From here assignments will be handed out, to write the majority and minority opinions.
There will not be much discussion today about Obamacare. Beginning with the Chief Justice, the members will share a few sentences and cast their votes. Work assignments will be dictated by Chief Justice Roberts, and the real work of opinions and written thoughts will begin. This will coalesce into a final ruling that will be released to the public, probably by the end of June.
The ruling could be revealed earlier if there is a greater consensus regarding Obamacare. If the prevailing sentiment is that it does not belong, the ruling may be more simple and direct. Will it stay or will it fail? It's difficult to tell based on the questioning process, because the justices have been known to play to the other side, just to draw out a certain line of thinking or interpretation. Now the real work behind the scenes begins. Hopefully, this tyrannical measure dies a large, public death. (Click here for a more detailed explanation of the process.)
