    Would a Mod please move?

    OK: I predict they throw the whole thing out lock stock and barrel.

    The only thing I'll predict with any certainty is that the mandatory health insurance provision bites the dust. Flagrantly, blatantly unconstitutional. Beyond that, my guess is a lot of it stays in place. Teabaggers may not like it, but there are a lot of aspects of Obamacare that are beneficial to people like me and my wife (mid-50s, middle-income).

    The mandate gets tossed. Maybe one or two other things get tossed. The rest stays.

    The Supreme Court doesn't care about that.

    Nope. Completely Constitutional. Mandate stays. Whole thing stays.

    6-3 to uphold everything

    Alito, Thomas, and Scalia?

    I'm guessing 7-2 or 8-1, with only Thomas or Thomas/Alito dissenting.

    I'm going to predict this thread endures a couple of cooling-off periods, possibly one before the decision is announced.

    I hope not. It seems we've had some outstanding, spirited, civil debates on this topic. But all bets might be off when we aren't dealing in hypotheticals any more. I remember how the Bush-Kerry election thread was really good until Kerry lost. Then it was like a nuclear bomb went off here.

    That's because liberals are poor losers.
