Good morning everybody I'm Bill Hemmer what a week that Shelby welcome here to America's Newsroom will be had a great weekend and ended up needing to have.
Stunningly great actually round one today -- -- -- -- on that later now we have a lot going on -- -- -- -- account everybody good to have -- with us on this Monday.
26 states have lined up against the White House and despite.
And however this decision comes out it could be the most significant statement on the limits of government that we've seen out of the court in eighty.
-- sure could Shannon -- is outside the courthouse this morning and channel star review three days of arguments this is just day one what is expected on day one.
We'll bill the interesting point on day one we heard the candy I have whether or not it's constitutional.
But today we may not ever get to that question because of what the justices have to consider it's an old 1867 tax -- what is says is.
You can't have a lawsuit against attacks you have not already paid.
So the question the justices will talk about for ninety minutes today is what they have to wait into the -- -- -- in point fourteen.
Someone has to pay a penalty for not complying with -- and booting this case until they could take it insults 4015 or even later bill that's day one.
So how real is the chance that this court puts off a decision say it -- that until 2014 or even beyond.
It is improbable but it is possible because normally the justices would get sixty minutes to an argument like this both sides actually in this case -- -- 26 states challenging the law and the government actually agree hey let's move this case forward gets old arcane law does not stop -- to get to a decision on America.
But the courts could be unusual step of adding an additional thirty minutes of arguments and actually appointed an outside attorney -- come -- and argued the position.
That the case is not right that they need to stop it right here in its tracks so they'd given it a lot of late today they actually considered a strong possibility.
Ninety minutes and then they get into the heart of the case tomorrow and beyond well unprecedented chanted thank you we can hear the folks behind -- to the protest they are -- fourteen -- -- throughout the week.
Janet things aren't they.
