In my last post, I wrote about how Obama had the choice to decide when his health care plan would be heard before the United States Supreme Court. He could have the case heard this upcoming fall or he could have it heard sometime in the next year or two. Well, Obama made his choice:
The Obama administration chose not to ask the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to re-hear a pivotal health reform case Monday, signaling that it’s going to ask the Supreme Court to decide whether President Barack Obama’s health reform law is constitutional.
the Obama Administration intentionally missed the deadline required to seek a review from the 11th District court of Appeal which struck down his health care plan:
Since the ruling, the Justice Department had until Monday to ask the entire 11th Circuit to review the case. Administration lawyers didn’t file the paperwork by the 5 p.m. deadline, so the ruling would stand unless the Justice Department asks the Supreme Court to step in.The petition isn’t due until November, and the administration could get an extension.
