ignatius_crumbcake: Tomorrow's headline: "Mitt Romney says Obamacare was his idea from the beginning."
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: $10 says they call for Roberts to be impeached (or worse).
Thunderpipes: Weird, Obama stated over and over this is not a tax. Now he argues it is.At least they shot down the forced Medicaid expansion. That will throw a big wrench into his plans. 26 states can tell Obama and the Feds to suck it now, and they will.Still scary. Means Congress can regulate your behavior via taxes. Vote Republican? Obama can impose a tax on you. Buy an American car? Obama can impose a tax on you. Christian? Obama can impose a tax on you.Now liberals, if we get a Republican advantage, how about we implement a tax on the unemployed? No job? Fine, pay a tax. I know you think you just won, but you just screwed everyone equally with another erosion of individual rights.
Doctor Funkenstein: Wait, does this mean we get to put Trig Palin in front of that death panel now?
Velveeta_Poindexter: Does Kennedy just flip a coin these days?
Skarekrough: Holy....shiatsnacks.Really?Seriously?My God. I swore that thing was dead.
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Thunderpipes: 26 states can tell Obama and the Feds to suck it now, and they will.Oh yeah, the States just love turning away Federal money.
EatenTheSun: So the Commerce clause actually has limits, but the Feds can create any sort of tax they want? This is great news!
PanicMan: 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.
lousyskater: I didn't really care which way this went, but man I need to get some popcorn for this one. DIS GONNA BE GOOD.
Robert1966: Yay! The United States enters the mid-twentieth century!
unlikely: This is a surprise. I honestly expected the 6-3 conservative court to rule more in favor of "fark the poors because they smell"
St_Francis_P: Lsherm: I was kind of hoping that they would strike it down and we'd get a true public option out of it, but this is probably for the best. Baby steps.Kind of what I was hoping, too.
NowhereMon: 10:13 ACA is upheld in it's entirety! Like the spiking of footballs commence!
Thunderpipes: Still scary. Means Congress can regulate your behavior via taxes. Vote Republican? Obama can impose a tax on you. Buy an American car? Obama can impose a tax on you. Christian? Obama can impose a tax on you.
FZ6: What's really sad is that rather than look at whether or not this thing is actually good or bad, people are more concerned about the democrat vs republican aspect. Yep - that always goes well...
DeltaPunch: St_Francis_P: I doubt Mitt actually gives a crap one way or another.Can you imagine what they would have run on? All summer long it would have been "Obama's unconstitutional health care bill", even if only certain parts of it were struck down...
Yakk: I am stunned Roberts did this.
what_now: Can I just put one SUCK IT, CONS in here, and then come back after my meeting and discuss this rationally?
St_Francis_P: I doubt Mitt actually gives a crap one way or another.
