Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi says the fact that the Supreme Court has decided to tackle the constitutionality of Obamacare in the spring shows that no one cannot say the challenge is not serious. Bondi also told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Monday although it is impossible to predict what the justices’ decision might be, the amount of time the court has planned to allocate to decide the issues surrounding the law shows its “incredible importance to the country.”
Earlier Monday, the high court decided to hear the case in March and allot 5-1/2 hours for oral arguments.

“You know, no one can any longer say that this challenge is not serious — by the amount of time the Supreme Court allocated to hear this case and the speed in which they took the case shows the incredible importance to the country,” Bondi said. “So we are very optimistic and we are very pleased — and in our opinion they gave us what may be an unprecedented amount of time this term for a modern day Supreme Court.”

Van Susteren noted that although the White House announced they are glad the case will go before the Supreme Court, she finds the claim “ a lie” since the Obama administration had battled an expedited review, instead taking arguments to lower appellate courts. Bondi agreed.

“But, you know what? We do — and the American people want it to go there, every taxpayer needs it to be there. and every business needs it to be there,” Bondi said. “And we are just incredibly gratified that the Supreme Court has now taken it. Arguments will be in March and we will have a decision in June.

“And again, the amount of time, as you said, that they allocated is truly unprecedented for a modern day Supreme Court,” she said. “So that just shows the tremendous importance to this country.”
