Two-thirds of Americans would like to see the Supreme Court strike down all or part of ObamaCare, according to a new poll conducted by The New York Times and CBS. The poll comes as the country awaits the Supreme Court's decision on President Obama's signature legislative achievement, which is expected to be handed down sometime before the end of June. During oral arguments in the spring, conservative justices expressed skepticism about the constitutionality of ObamaCare's central provision: The individual mandate, which requires most Americans to buy health insurance.

Popularity does not equal Constitutionality.

true and probably two thirds of people polled don't know what's in the bill and don't really care that much.

And that's the truth.

DEEZUS says:
Buuut, the Supreme Court was only looking at Constitutionality, it is not their place to decide if something is good policy.

Many many libs have posted many many times today that the country likes Obamacare.

The American people will decide the issue in November, DEEZUS.

And they would be wrong. Every online poll I've seen has 60 some percent voting against the Supreme Court ruling.

And then you'll come on here and whine about the results.

How many people who voted for the bill even read it? One? None?

What's the point? The Supreme Court's decision is not one that can be appealed.

So we should govern by poll?

Constitutional laws can be repealed, and Obama has created a new path whereby we can now simply ignore laws we don't like!

They won't repeal taxing authority. They will repeal this law.

And states have already announced their intention to ignore large chuncks of the law. I'd like to see Obama complain about that.

I can tell you that ignoring Federal CMS rules makes tax avoidance penalties and meter maids with a quota to meet look toothless and weak. They can take back across the board percentages. No one messes with them.

The states are not talking abiut tax avoidance. They're talking about ignoring certain things in the law.

If they depend on Fed Medicare and Medicaid dollars (they all pretty much have to), they will be more bark than bite. Send a few RAC auditors in with across the board percentage take backs and the hospital lobbies will be screaming for help and threatening legislators.

Yeah, I tried to get a link here for you and it just takes me to a stupid Obama story, but the one with the most respondents I saw was on Yahoo. Go halfway down the page on the right at yahoo.com home page and there's a poll there where three-hundred thousand some responded (you'll have to vote on it yourself to see the results) and it gives 63% against.

I looked at some of the patch.com polls as well and they were running about the same.

Rover says:
SCOTUS specifically ruled that states cannot be penalized by the fed under this act. They know Obama.

And of obama tries to attack them, ignoring that part of the ruling, they'll simply sue and win.

They cannot have full Medicaid withheld. That's *very* different.
