Some of the U.S. Supreme Court’s most significant decisions are those declining to hear a case. Two weeks ago, the Court made such a momentous non-ruling in refusing to hear a lawsuit, Hall v. Sebelius, challenging government policies that deny otherwise eligible retirees their Social Security benefits if they choose not to enroll in Medicare. (I previously wrote about the case, and Cato filed a brief supporting the retirees’ petition for Supreme Court review.)
Despite having paid thousands of dollars each in Social Security and Medicare taxes during their working lives—for which they never sought reimbursement—the five plaintiffs were told by officials at the Social Security Administration and Department of Health and Human Services that they had to forfeit all of their Social Security benefits if they wished to withdraw from (or not enroll in) Medicare. This determination resulted from internal policies that were put in place during the Clinton administration and strengthened by the Bush administration. The plaintiffs sought a judicial ruling that would prohibit SSA and HHS from enforcing these policies, which they believed conflicted with the Social Security and Medicare statutes. A sharply divided U.S Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit eventually upheld them. By its decision not to hear the case, the Supreme Court let that controversial ruling stand.
At this point, one might ask why someone would want to give up Medicare. The answer is that some people would prefer to keep their existing (private) health insurance, but that for various regulatory and economic reasons insurance companies are wary of insuring people already covered by Medicare. Talk about the prototypical case of government programs crowding out the private sector!
We have not seen anything yet. That's how they control people. You would think they would be grateful for the ones who did not want to participate in medicare as it is going broke.
couldnt they keep both if they wanted?
Those liberals (along with Roberts) all need to go. Soon!
THEY ALL NEED TO GO,AND NOW
This is but one more crack in the dam. With all of the tyrannical madness going on right now its just a matter of time before the lead starts flying. Once that happens everything becomes a moot point until we re-establish a constitutional government.
The judicial branch is now as corrupt as the other branches of government. Roberts proved that when he ruled on Obamacare. I would like these fecking people to stay the hell out of my life and let me run my own business.
The Supreme Court enmasse are now TRAITORS to America! All must be replaced in order to save the Constitutional America!
The Supreme court already abandoned its role when it OKd Obamacare, that obscene violation of the Constitution. They are more worthless than the Republican party has become.

Patriots plan for resisting the Globalist agenda:
Develop Secure Community Co-ops (Interactive Neighborhood Watch on steroids). Groups should be from about 5 to 15 people in the same general area, neighborhood. All members should be conservative/responsible adults.
Members should work at fortifying local, county and state govts. as well as joining Shrf. Reserve Forces (as long as the shrf. is an oathkeeper), Constitutional Sheriffs Assoc./ USCDA, State Militias, Constitutional Militias, etc. Also, should be involved in TP, 9-12, John Birch Soc., etc.
SCC's should have a liason with other like-minded grps. in order to give/obtain support when needed.
The states should and hopefully will be the first line of defense against an overreaching tyrannical govt.(Don't count on it if you are living in a Blue State) Next, it would fall on the counties and local communities, working in concert with the various State Militia units, Co. Shrfs' Depts., Constitutional and SCC elements. After that, if needed, Bug Out procedures should be implemented. Hopefully, to safe areas.
