There are few people who have sifted through the Supreme Court's oral arguments about the constitutionality of President Obama's Affordable Care Act as meticulously as trial consultant Ryan Malphurs. He explains what the three-day marathon sessions tell us about how the Roberts court works, why Chief Justice John Roberts might end up being the swing vote, and, of course, Malphurs offers his predictions on the court's decision. It's expected to be announced before the end of the month.

Why worry about people who can't afford health care, who are excluded from coverage because of preexisting conditions, who are priced out of the market of affordability, and who will die prematurely? As long as we have our precious rights, right? After all, the right to die, the right to go into bankruptcy due to trying to pay health care costs, and the right to have insurance companies tell us what they will and will not cover MUST be protected by the Constitution!

It is worth remembering that Justice Kagan would have been US Solicitor General and arguing for Obamacare if she was not on a member of the Supreme Court now and "impartially" casting judgement on it.

Perhaps the President regrets not keeping her at the post and maybe doing a better job defending his constitutionally questionable signature legislation which his entire Presidency will be based on.

Everyone wants health care reform, but we want a reform that doesn't compromise and attack and limit religious liberty and protection of conscience - is that too much to ask?
