D'antoni and you knew that any time we get favorable court rulings in this day and age it's up. Time for the trumpets to sound yesterday we had one of course when the a federal appeals court judge the district court judge. Ruled that the NSA was unconstitutional. And in their efforts to listen to him and and on your phone conversations and track your FaceBook and Twitter accounts and all the rest and so that was. That was a huge victory although it will wind up being appealed by the government and go to the Supreme Court almost certainly. But there was another. A ruling that -- should be aware of this story from my newest Macs dot com the Archdiocese of New York applauded a judge's decision yesterday. The so called non exempt religious groups are not bound by obamacare as a requirement to provide. In their health care insurance plans coverage for contraceptives. And other birth control options. In a statement. The spokesman for the archdiocese. Called Brooklyn federal court judge Brian -- ruling a thoughtful decision. And that non exempt Catholic health and educational organizations have. Religious freedom rights. -- barred the government from enforcing the mandate against Catholic healthcare system. Catholic health services of Long Island cardinal Spellman high school and monsignor Farrell high school. The Roman Catholic archdiocese of new York and the health and educational groups. Challenge the mandate on religious freedom grounds as they should. The US issued a rule exempting the archdiocese later. But schools and health care affiliates were still subject of -- law which -- effects on January 1 of next year. Kogan wrote the groups have demonstrated that the mandate despite accommodation. Compels them to perform acts that are contrary to their religion and there can be no doubt. That the coercive pressure here is substantial. Now groups that don't comply -- this mandate are subject to fines of a hundred dollars per day per affected beneficiary. Catholic health services and Long Island the largest of the group's. Overseas six hospitals three nursing homes and they hospice service and has a health plan covering almost 25000 people. The ACLU. Filed a brief in support of the government here they lost.

For they are out Hawaii and vacation. There in a seventeen day Wahoo. Christmas outing. And apparently my my fears are well founded the Obama administration according to Jay Carney barker. Official White House a liar not press spokesperson. For lack. The Obama administration is working overtime. To make sure that everyone who wants health insurance -- January 1 is able to get it said Jay Carney to reporters on Monday. However. What about the present himself. As he. Signed up for obamacare yet. A reporter Cleary. And yesterday's press briefing. Carney replied. He's the man. I have no updates on that the president will purchase insurance on the exchanges. He doesn't have to do it the reporter said. He doesn't -- great obviously it's. The enrollment -- march 31 so when we have an update on it will provided to the. Then asked if -- White House is reasonably confident. Let everyone who needs to get coverage by January 1 will be able to get it Carney said some. Uninsured Americans may not enroll until January or February or march. Crave more mayors I don't know and I know reverend. And I don't think the -- expectation was. That every uninsured Americans would have insurance on January 1 as welcome as that development would be said. People who want their coverage to begin on on January 1 must enroll by December 23. Carney said the administration is acting very aggressively. To ensure that those who -- older and communication with their insurers to make sure they know when their premiums or do.
