By Michelle Malkin  •  June 10, 2013 02:42 AM

Loyal readers will recall that in the fall of 2009, I published special reports on the parental revolt against Big Labor’s attempts to force their way into the homes and lives of families who care for developmentally disabled loved ones. One of the moms I spotlighted, Pam Harris, refused to surrender. Her class-action lawsuit challenging […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 19, 2012 10:01 AM

Supreme Court rules against SEIU

By Doug Powers  •  June 21, 2012 11:43 AM

**Written by Doug Powers There will be no ruling on Obamacare or the Arizona immigration law today, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t any SCOTUS-related news. This morning, Big Labor’s already bad year took another hit: The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that unions must give nonmembers an immediate chance to object to unexpected fee increases […]

New York Times/CBS poll: Obamacare definitely not getting any more popular

By Doug Powers  •  June 7, 2012 03:07 PM

**Written by Doug Powers It’s looking like the Supreme Court would be doing Obama re-election hopes a favor by flushing this thing down, even though Nancy Pelosi’s constitutional expertise leads her to believe it will be upheld 6-3. From the New York Times: More than two-thirds of Americans hope the Supreme Court will overturn some […]

White House to SCOTUS: ‘Extraordinary disruptions’ to Medicare if Obamacare struck down

By Doug Powers  •  May 4, 2012 02:03 PM

**Written by Doug Powers “Don’t overturn the health care law or else _____ will happen” part deux: Medicare’s payment system, the unseen but vital network that handles 100 million monthly claims, could freeze if President Barack Obama’s health care law is summarily overturned, the administration quietly informed the courts. Although Obama’s overhaul made significant cuts […]

Obamacare arguments, day 3 open thread: Fate of the mandate; Updated

By Doug Powers  •  March 28, 2012 12:12 PM

**Written by Doug Powers If the SCOTUS strikes down the individual mandate, does the entire health care law get tossed in its entirety, or just the mandate part? That’s what this morning’s arguments at the Supreme Court revolved around. The afternoon session will hear a challenge against an expansion to Medicaid, which states are saying […]

NYT: White House Organizing Prayer Vigil Outside Supreme Court During Hearing on Obamacare

By Doug Powers  •  March 9, 2012 04:20 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Well, Congress passed the health care law, and contrary to Nancy Pelosi’s assurances, Kathleen Sebelius still doesn’t know what’s in it. That, however, isn’t delaying Obamacare’s expected arrival at the Supreme Court, where Team Obama will pull out all the stops. From the New York Times: The White House has begun […]

By Doug Powers  •  November 16, 2011 08:51 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Tuesday, as Michelle noted, C-Span asked the Supreme Court to allow their cameras to televise oral arguments when the Court hears the Obamacare law case next spring. Nancy Pelosi agrees: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that Supreme Court arguments over President Obama’s healthcare law should be televised. “When […]

Document drop: C-SPAN asks Supreme Court to open Obamacare oral arguments to cameras

Just in from C-SPAN: A request to Chief Justice John Roberts to allow camera coverage of the Obamacare oral arguments next spring.
