    Many observers from both the Left and the Right assume the Supreme Court will vote in a partisan manner. I suspect many people will be surprised by the outcome. Many self-appointed experts believe the outcome will be a 5-4 decision. But it wouldn’t surprise me to have a 4-5 decision. I don’t believe there is a single judge on the Supreme Court that would risk his or her reputation by voting on a position they do not believe is supported by the Constitution.

  2. Chris says:

    I disagree with you Devon, I’ve personally found many recent decisions seemingly political.

    In theory, there should never be a split decision on a constitutional question, and the large swath of split decisions lately makes me think they are partisan.

    For instance the DC gun law case. Is the constitution so unclear as to have that case end up split?

  3. Brian Williams. says:

    It is interesting that the Court is not only looking at the mandate. They are also looking at the constitutionality of the Medicaid expansion.

  4. Brian says:

    Can’t wait.
