If the Court is weighted in any direction it's toward the Church.
I'm not so sure about that. Just because a person is "catholic," that doesn't always mean much.
And the next president, whoever he is, is going to get to make at least one appointment anyway.
This is an interesting conversation, though, because rather few people are really talking about what actually might happen in very practical terms, if the individual mandate doesn't get totally thrown out in the next couple of weeks.
In March or whenever it was that it went to the floor in the Supreme Court, it didn't sound like it was going to remain intact, but no one outside those chambers really knows for sure, at least officially or in any way they can let on.
I'm not sure whether if part of it is struck down and some stands, what we'll be stuck with. It's not outside the realm of possibility that there's a hidden stunt buried in it for that eventuality.
