Obama in no hurry for Obamacare to reach Supreme Court

H.R. 3590 - The Health Care Reform Bill as passed on March 21, 2010 -- Complete text signed by President Barack Obama (also known as "Health Reform" and ... Act 2009 / 2010") 2,409 pages -- Searchable

Most likely, President Obama is afraid the Supreme Court will overturn his socialistic takeover of American health care. The longer he waits, the more of the law gets deployed. It is very hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube. President Obama may also be secretly hoping a Conservative Justice will be forced to retire and he can add another liberal to the court.

(NewsMax) — A U.S. Supreme Court showdown over President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul may be inevitable. His administration is in no rush for the court to get involved.

The Justice Department yesterday said it will oppose Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s request that the court immediately review the law, which a federal trial judge said was unconstitutional. The administration said the high court should follow its usual practice and first let an appeals court rule on Cuccinelli’s challenge.

The government’s approach would give it a chance to rack up lower court victories and perhaps build popular support for the law before the justices take up the case. It might also set the stage for a Supreme Court ruling only months before the 2012 presidential election.
