Predictions on the health care decision tomorrow

The U.S. Supreme Court building as seen from the U.S. Captiol June 27, 2012 in Washington, DC. The high court could hand down a landmark ruling on the Affordable Care Act as early as Thursday.

This final note, a look to tomorrow and the Supreme Court's ruling on the Affordable Health Care Act.

Whether you are in the media, a patient with a pre-existing condition or even President Obama himself, we are all waiting anxiously for the decision to come down tomorrow morning. Will the Court uphold it, or get rid of some or all of it?

For an early hint, we turned some other kind of experts to see where things might be headed.

Yes, we talked to astrologists.

First, Randy Goldberg in Washington, D.C.

Randy Goldberg: Oh I think they are going to keep all of it.

But then here is astrologer Craig Martin from Los Angeles.

Craig Martin: So I think from looking at the charts here, they are just going to take out the individual mandate and leave the rest.

All of this has to do with whether Venus will be in retrograde or not tomorrow -- which these two do not agree on.

So I guess we will all just have to keep waiting. Darn.

Everyone is all worked up about being forced to buy Health Insureance and say it is unconstituional. So whats the differance between the Government forcing people to buy car insurance (All 52 states require some form of it) and the Government requiring people to buy health insurance. Oh, of course you don't need to own a car, but tell that to all the people that don't live in a city (about 2/3rds of America). Walking 5, 15 or 30 miles to work is not an option for all pratical purposes and not possible for some. So you say I live in the city and don't need a car as I use public transportation. To get from point A to point B using public transportation it is a pretty sure bet that your local and or state goverment is Forcing you to buy a ticket. Bottom line is that I see no differance between being forced to buy Car insurance or other types of insurance and being forced to buy health insurance. Personally I currently have both right now.

Now aren't you ashamed of yourself for dignifying this pseudo-science? Just for fun? It has no place in serious journalism at all, ever, period.

I like your photo, Richard, but it should show the other end.
