To summarize: Ken Cuccinelli, Attorney General for Virginia, requested that the US Supreme Court expedite its presumed-inevitable review of the Virginia Obamacare suit currently wending its way through the lower courts (this is the suit that found the individual mandate both unconstitutional, and severable, from the rest of Obamacare*). The court has declined to do so; which means that the issue will probably not be actually addressed until the summer of 2012. This decision is of note for two reasons:
Personally, I can’t say that I can blame the Supreme Court for not wanting to be sucked in prematurely to the issue of Obamacare; it’s bad enough that they’re already expected to at least ameliorate Pelosi, Reid, and Obama’s incompetence on full, malignant display with regard to this abomination. Personally, I would have preferred that the Democrats had never put the Supreme Court in this position in the first place; then again, I would have also preferred that the Democratic leadership had stayed away from ‘fixing’ health care and instead stuck to things more suited to their intellectual capacity, like passing resolutions honoring National Rutabaga Day.
But that’s just me.

*The Florida decision was the one that declared the individual mandate unconstitutional and not severable from the rest of Obamacare (thus making the whole thing unconstitutional, too).
