With a potential supreme court hearing on the Health Care Bill looming in the distance, some Democrats go on the offensive and shine a spotlight on a supreme court judge that could prove to be pivotal to the outcome of the case. - source A group of 73 House Democrats on Wednesday demanded U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas recuse himself from any case examining the constitutionality of healthcare reform. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) and 72 other colleagues wrote Thomas on Wednesday to ask him to sit out any Supreme Court review of President Obama's healthcare law, citing the work by Thomas's wife on behalf of efforts opposing that healthcare law. "As members of Congress, we were surprised by recent revelations of your financial ties to leading organizations dedicated to lobbying against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," the Democrats wrote. "We write today to respectfully ask that you maintain the integrity of this court and recuse yourself from any deliberations on the constitutionality of this act." In a standard court case where a jury selection is deliberated upon, something like this would be considered a conflict of interest and would disqualify the jury candidate. Should these rules also apply to Justice Thomas as well, despite him being on the highest court of the land?
