John Roberts siding with the left wing of the court... MY GOD! THE MAYANS WERE RIGHT!

10:13 ACA is upheld in it's entirety! Like the spiking of footballs commence!

I don't believe it. I'm actually shocked.

$10 says they call for Roberts to be impeached (or worse).

I bet. I can't believe Roberts swung on it either. Did it go 6-3? Seems unlikely that if Roberts went for it that Kennedy didn't as well.

I'm amazed it was Roberts. That's just something I was not expecting.

So goddamn it I guess we now have to care about our fellow man like Jesus said?!

Can't force you to have health insurance, but they can tax you for it

5-4 Roberts as swing vote. Wow. I was sort of expecting he would uphold, but I presumed that was conditioned on Kennedy doing the same.

Why does CNN have "Mandate Struck Down" tattooed on their front page...?

/which news agency has reading comprehension issues?!?

There is going to be some epic butthurt that is about to commence.

I'm taking credit for this, because my awesomnicitude is just that great.

'Congress had the power to impose the exaction in Section 5000A under the taxing power, and that Section 5000A need not be read to do more than impose a tax. This is sufficient to sustain it. '

Interesting decision.
 
2012-06-28 10:22:29 AM  
This is a surprise. I honestly expected the 6-3 conservative court to rule more in favor of "fark the poors because they smell"
 
2012-06-28 10:22:48 AM  
I doubt Mitt actually gives a crap one way or another.

Local Man: Why does CNN have "Mandate Struck Down" tattooed on their front page...?

Because it was, technically. It cannot be upheld as lawful to force someone to buy insurance. But it can be upheld as a tax to encourage people to buy insurance

Wait, does this mean we get to put Trig Palin in front of that death panel now?

So does this or does this not mean I have to wait in the ER for 3 hours because its filled with non-insured people who have the flu or a splinter?

Yes

My coworker just said "they can't do that because the founding fathers wrote the constitution based on the old testimate". Also, this is the end of the country.

I would have gone with ALL CAPS for added impact.

WOOOOO, commence the poo flinging!
 
2012-06-28 10:29:59 AM  
So how exactly does this work? I've always thought the best way to encourage the purchase of health insurance was to either provide a large tax deduction or just allow the cost of insurance to be subtracted from the final income tax amount.

Is that essentially what will happen, or is it something else?

I admit I haven't been paying close attention to this case (or ACA for that matter).
 
2012-06-28 10:30:00 AM  
I couldn't believe everything in there survived intact. I expect some clauses here or there to get struck down. Especially didn't think the court would say "fark you, it's a tax, not interstate commerce, biatches. OK, pass".
 
2012-06-28 10:30:00 AM  
WHOOOOOOOOOO! Suck it, Republitards!

Silver lining based on SCOTUSBlog: The mandate was not a legit use of the commerce clause, but it was OK as a tax.

So yes, Obama and the Democrats did, in fact, raise taxes on the middle class. After repeatedly promising not to.
