Some lunatics have signaled their willingness to throw Healthcare for the poor under the bus all for the sake of a sixth vote for the absurdity of same-sex "marriage". A 5-4 split would be too acrimonious and thus insufficient for the respect that same-sex relationships apparently deserve. A 6-3 split, although not ideal by any means, would be much more fitting, and if more poor people have to die because they can't afford adequate medical care, then so be it. Because gays having a hissy fit over having won ONLY a bare majority would be far worse than the poor dying from poverty.
The Left can go fuck itself.
