-- -- my special -- of the remaining part of the show up so I add I guess it now comes back to.
What happens if that individual mandate -- shot down in the health care law.
Toward toward keeping this around isn't legal and to me it's of -- mathematical one.
That did the did the mandate was going to fund us take away demeans the which is fun this you've you've lost this -- Yes to a great extent you have.
And that that's why.
It's entirely possible that because there is no -- ability clause actually in the statute.
That the court could strike down the entire law.
-- on the other hand it's also possible that the court could strike down the unconstitutional.
Part the individual mandate.
And then leave to congress the responsibility.
Of correcting this flawed law.
And that's why many people including their Heritage Foundation -- with which I'm affiliated.
I really believe that congress should repeal the entire law.
And this would only if the individual mandate is not there -- -- even more important to do that.
And there are plenty of other ideas.
And many programs that have been.
Recommended by different organizations including heritage and others on how you solve the health care problem.
Without doing anything that's unconstitutional.
But you don't presidents have survived slap downs from the Supreme Court let's say this happens that this present on health care.
Abraham Lincoln had some dust ups -- this corpus.
But -- Jackson did as well over what what was considered -- self declared war.
Against the Cherokee Indians FDR.
For talking to coordinate that guy kept getting elected and reelected so I guess what and ask -- -- may -- -- more political question.
If you don't mind and that is is it really.
A conservative dream.
If they get a victory on this or is it they've just grease the skids.
President to do more assuming Israel -- Well I think that what this illustrates.
Is what the president might do if he was reelected I think the greatest.
That threat really but the Obama administration.
Would be what at -- president unfettered by having to face the voters again.
Might do in the subsequent four years.
He is the way in which he has talked about the constitution that it doesn't matter to him the way he has talked about that so why this that -- and Obama care should be.
That is the court should not full with obamacare.
Obviously -- -- disdain for the constitution.
Has he has had so many other in so many other -- -- And -- yet but I see no way he's writing it though that I can see saying.
It will be and Bill Clinton's -- this argument all along with an interview on on another news network today where he was Marla -- is -- -- -- -- about best.
This would be and I'm paraphrasing here just part of a Republican continuing after it.
To do value this president's crowning achievement and on and on and other words they might actually relish.
But deceit and the courts.
Well I don't think they would and I don't think it would help them at all.
He has such a pattern of unconstitutional actions such as making recess appointments when there is no recess.
Such as having the EPA.
Pass something by executive action when the congress has specifically denied that opportunity.
All of these things indicated unconstitutional.
President that would be a real terror a real threat to the country in the constitution if -- were reelected.
-- But you.
Would agree with me -- -- -- deal humbling -- strategy that he sat down on the court doesn't mean -- any less inclined.
To to take some -- Well not necessarily.
In those other cases there.
And not all of them -- -- where steps in and what the F.
Ultimately was able to to prevail because he was doing the right thing.
In this case we -- perhaps not entirely in the case Roosevelt.
But remember he was thwarted in his in his court packing scheme.
And -- even though media that tried it he was not move was not successful in in carrying it out.
So I I think that the I really think that if the court follows the constitution.
And holds the independent mend at the individual mandate.
I think this is good politics.
Because I think most people believe in the constitution.
And I don't think this would help the pro.
