Everyone is trying to read the tea leaves. With the Supreme Court set to issue its opinion on the constitutionality of ObamaCare in a matter of hours - on the final day of its term - there's growing speculation that Chief Justice John Roberts will write the opinion. And, if so, what does that mean?
It's certainly likely that the Chief Justice will author the opinion, but not confirmed. And the way this issue has been litigated, right now, there are still more questions than answers. Don't forget that during the appeals process, judges on both sides of the political spectrum both upheld and rejected the constitutionality of ObamaCare.
Many are pointing to the oral arguments in March where the Chief Justice raised sharp questions about the individual mandate, which forces Americans to purchase health insurance under penalty of law.
As I told Megyn Kelly on FOX News today, you really can't determine the outcome of a case based on oral arguments. One thing is clear, though. The Chief Justice is going to call it as he sees it. You can watch the entire interview here.
As you know, we've been at the forefront challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare, including the individual mandate.
We filed a significant amicus brief with the high court on that issue. We represent 119 members of Congress and nearly 145,000 Americans and urged the high court to uphold a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit that the individual mandate violates the Commerce Clause of the Constitution and must be rejected.
We also have our own lawsuit challenging ObamaCare that's being held before the high court. We expect an order in that case tomorrow as well.
We will know soon enough. A decision is expected shortly after 10am eastern time tomorrow. We will have complete coverage online and on our daily radio broadcast.
The wait is almost over. Thursday will be a very big day.
