Subject: RE: BS: Nationalized Healthcare, good? bad?
Well, add my state, Virginia< to the list of Redneck Nation states that have filed suit even before the law goes into effect??? Little knee-jerkin' going on in Redneck Nation these days...

The problem with the concept of these law suits is that, yeah, the Repubs did a very nice job in the "lost decade" in creating the perfect storm of a Supreme Court... I mean, the Roberts/Alito court will more than likely take the case and override the US Congress... But the scarey thing is that their reasoning will be that yhe federal government really shouldn't have any power at all to force folks to do this of that... One of those this or thats is Social Security... That has me a little concerned 'cause I can see Cowboy Roberts and his sidekick Alito overturning the "mandate portion" of the act, thereby gutting it, and then Redneck Nation will go for Social Security with the precidence that is set in knocking out the mandate...

I tell ya'll that the passing of this bill, unless the progressives can tell a better story to the moderates in this country, may be the beginnin' of the unraveling of the New Deal...

Think about it... You know that the Repubs have hated the New Deal ever since the Dems got it going... And this hatred has been passed down from generation to generation much the way Redneck Natioon has passed down racism and bigotry....

Gonna be interesting...
