JUSTICE SCALIA: Mr. Kneedler, what happened to the Eighth Amendment? You really want us to go through these 2,700 pages?The Eighth Amendment is the constitutional protection against cruel and unusual punishment...i.e. torture.
JUSTICE SCALIA: And do you really expect the Court to do that? Or do you expect us to -- to give this function to our law clerks?
Is this not totally unrealistic? That we are going to go through this enormous bill item by item and decide each one?
Sounds to me like Scalia is ready to toss the whole thing. Obamacare has had a bad three days in the Supreme Court.
