re: Supreme Court votes 7-2 to KEEP Obamacare! - Teddy Ruxpin
Ya, I said it in the other thread. If the ACA had passed with everything but the mandate, there wouldn't be much to strike it down on. While bad laws may suck, the Supreme Court isn't supposed to strike down laws because they may be unwise. With the mandate effectively gone, there's not much l...

It's interesting how in baseball everyone wants a clean ball but in football, kickers and QBs beat the shite out of them to their preference before the league cut down on that practice....

re: Supreme Court rejects TX's challenge to the ACA, reversing 5th Circuit - Teddy Ruxpin
I know it's maybe a bit circular getting to this place, but without the mandate being enforced there's really not a whole lot left to argue with regards to it's constitutionality. Bad and onerous law perhaps, but those parts were constitutional. Remember, it can still be replaced legislatively if pe...

re: Supreme Court rejects TX's challenge to the ACA, reversing 5th Circuit - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]Sometimes I just get confused on what SCOTUS is supposed to do.[/quote] One thing they aren't supposed to do is try to correct "bad" laws. While the ACA is arguably bad to some with the numerous requirements it placed on employers and insurers, that isn't within the Supreme Court's purview...

re: Supreme Court rejects TX's challenge to the ACA, reversing 5th Circuit - Teddy Ruxpin
[quote]Alien Tort Statute[/quote] I wrote a paper on this once. Memories. As for ACA, at least conceptually, you now have legislation that no longer has the poison pill of the mandate. The ACA probably would have been fine constitutionally if it never included it to begin with is the thought p...

Sepilok? I just googled and found that. That's a long way to go for that to be the highlight :lol: There's another one as well but looks about the same. I hope you're going to a cool beach, waterfall or something around this. Unique destination though. Hope you go. BTW I've read Brunei s...

re: Taking the L from ORD - Teddy Ruxpin
Ya I think I used the contactless last time back in 2019. The smoothest public transit move that probably isn't applicable now with mobile wallets and such was my FIL at the US Open in NYC. We get to Queens and he goes immediately to the kiosk and buys our return tickets. When the tournament l...

re: have a TWIC? then you have TSA Precheck - Teddy Ruxpin

re: Taking the L from ORD - Teddy Ruxpin
Ya I have a Ventra account for my visits. Whatever it takes to avoid a long line at a ticket kiosk as you either have people who have a hard time working them or the card reader is being a PITA. Those issues are public transit issues across the globe :lol:...
