    • Oh man. I am so glad I’m not a law-wonk. Yikes!

    • The volume of briefs filed should tell all Americans, the Healthcare legislation imposed on We the People, is so harmful to this country and our economy, as to justify going to the Supreme Court.

      We did not send these politicians to Washington to destroy what little is left of the so-called “middle class”, but to represent us. The so-called Affordable Care Act will destroy the healthcare system in this country beyond recognition.

      Politicians who voted for this should be outed from office in 2012, following suit of what occurred in the last election.
