On eve of Obamacare ruling, Supreme Court Justice predicts ‘sharp disagreement’

With a wry smile, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg laid waste Friday to all those rumors about the fate of the Affordable Care Act in the Supreme Court.

“Those who know don’t talk. And those who talk don’t know,” she quipped Friday night at a conference hosted by the American Constitution Society at the Capital Hilton.


Ginsburg said she was responding to a “steady stream of rumors and fifth-hand accounts” about the court’s deliberations on the law.

Careful not to tip her hand on the court’s ruling — expected in the next two weeks — Ginsburg described the oral arguments in the case as unprecedented for the number of “press conferences, prayer circles, protests and counterprotests” that occurred on the courthouse steps.

Although she offered no insight into the tightly held decisions of her colleagues, Ginsburg did indicate that many of the court’s decisions over the next two weeks — which are also expected to include an FCC indecency ruling — might be close.

    Obamacare has put doctors out of practice already, when Obama was elected Palmetto was the Medicare people paying the bills. They were not paying the bills and doctors office had to re-bill and appeal, this cost money. Last year the gov wanted all files on the web. It took the doctors office, average 2 1/2 hrs per patient to install the data. Then the gov increased the billing numbers 70,000 more billing numbers. This became a billing nightmare. Because of non payment from Medicare and Medical + the illegals not paying for transport by ambulance they almost lost the business. With some local help and donations it is surviving so far but some of the bill still haven’t been paid. Palmetto hired or gov hired some subcontractors to help. more government! I was paying some of my doctors up front and then “TRYING” to collect from Medicare. I was also appealing! Some of the bills were paid before the got to the judge. I was getting documents from 4 different agencies. no one knew what the others were doing even though everything is suppose to be on the computer. It took a year an half to get it straightened out. My one doctor didn’t get paid or my surgery. Ian 2010 paid Nov. 2011. almost 2 years. Obamacare and HMO’s are worthless.

    Sad part of this whole thing is that all of this chaos is EXACTLY what Obama Hell Care s all about. That gutless, terrorist loving, halfbreed, coward has all the puppet strings of George Soros fine tuned right on target to destroy the health care of America. there are a lot of people out there that are just waiting for him to get the “pink slip” that will send him back to Chicago, without the usual security detail enjoyed by all the others that have gone before, I hope! *diabolical laughter*

    I see the whole law going down as it in every way is Horrible for America. Most of it doesn`t have anything to do with HC and it is tied to it. The thing that I wonder, are they actually reading this massive law that no one else bothered to read and if they do, will they even understand it???
