The Obamacarians don’t care much about the U.S. Constitution.  Now, we have the Secretary of Health and Human Services admitting she didn’t even consider the constitutionality of imposing the “free birth control” rule, nor obtain a legal memo on the legal mandate she imposed Catholic institutions, that will fine them if they refuse to violate their own religious beliefs.  Ideology over constitutionality. That seems to be the Obamacare Rule!  And Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is right, it will end up in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Reminds me of the equally clueless and indifferent to the Constitution, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, responding, “Are you kidding?” when asked about the constitutionality of Obamacare. No, we aren’t, and neither, apparently, are the Supremes.
