Why Appeals on the Constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act Will Not Be Fast-Tracked to the Supreme Court

Posted Dec 20 2010 7:15am

The Disease Management Care Blog agrees with the spouse on one key observation about human and organizational behavior: if moms were put in charge, a lot of societal problems would be fixed - and pronto. For starters, war involving their children would end. Our nation's schools would work. 535 legislators would be looking for new employment. Taylor Swift's media ubiquity would cease.

If only.

The DMCB suspects the moms would also favor dismantling all of the lower court legal motions and appeals surrounding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate. It's going to end up at the Supreme Court anyway, so it'd be smart to just fast track it , right?

Alas, the moms aren't in charge. After researching the toxic legal issues and partisan undercurrents, the DMCB developed this handy decision tree posted above that amply demonstrates how our Republic can look forward to years of additional legal wrangling before we'll know for sure.
