Media Circus at Supreme Court today

(Hey, look! Even Presidential candidate Rick Santorum stopped by to throw in his two cents about Obamacare being unconstitutional!)

There will be plenty of action today around the Supreme Court as activists of every size, shape, and color come to make their feelings known about the upcoming ruling on Obamacare.

Yesterday, on Monday, the judges went through some procedural hearings which would decide whether or not it was even possible for them to hear the case. Their decision hinged on the court deciding that Obamacare either was or was not a tax.

Judge Scalia made fun of the Federal Governments attorneys by saying they were arguing that Obamacare was not a tax on Monday...so that the case could not be heard for two more years until the tax actually becomes active. Scalia also pointed out that the government would be arguing the opposite on Tuesday... that Obamacare was a tax and that the government had the right to do so under the Interstate Commerce Clause.

Good point by Scalia -- and that lets me know where he is headed with this.

He is going to vote against Obamacare. So will Justice Thomas.

That's two.

We just need 3 more votes.....
