Obamacare’s arrival at the Supreme Court was inevitable, and as predicted it’s now knocking on the big white pillars:

After a year and a half of legal skirmishing, President Obama’s embattled healthcare law has arrived at the Supreme Court riding a surprising winning streak and carrying a constitutional stamp of approval from prominent conservative judges.

Only three of the 12 appellate judges who have reviewed the law have decided it is unconstitutional to require all Americans to have health insurance. Not a single appeals court judge has said the entire law must be tossed out, the position advocated by Florida and 25 other Republican states leading the legal assault.

The Supreme Court is expected to announce as soon as Monday that it will hear the Florida case, the largest and broadest challenge to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

I wonder which way Elena Kagan’s going to rule. The suspense is too much.

According to Rasmussen, 54 percent favor a repeal of the law, so who knows — maybe a SCOTUS rejection would inadvertently do Obama a favor next year.

If the Court hears Obamacare as expected, a ruling could come around the end of June, just a few months before the election. Let the games begin!
