Let's try this again

A few days ago, I was certain that the Ever-Less-Supreme Court would be coming down with the health care reform decision that day. So let's try it the Court will come down with the decision.

If for some reason there is a concurrence or dissent from Justice Michael Savage Scalia what will be his archaic antebellum precedent this time?  I can guess:

"Notwithstanding "[t]he myth of an era of non-government provided health care" in the first 100 years of the Republic, the States enacted numerous laws enabling private individuals to steal the leeches of any non-propertied person, or even compel a Native American to provide them with a leech, newt, toad, pig's blood, or ram penis.  All manner of medical care was provided not by the state but by private individuals such as witches, witch doctors, barbers, druids, medicine men and shamans.  The fact that the state did not require an individual be provided with a leech from the communal swamp did not harm a person's medical care whatsover, other than free market provided malaria and dropsy.  Oh, and ditto.
C'mon Scalia, you are always the Justice that puts the "dick" in dicta.
