ialdabaoth: Ok, look. This is simple.If someone can't afford to stay competitive, why do they deserve to compete?If someone can't afford to keep working, why do they deserve to work?If someone can't afford to stay healthy, why do they deserve health?If someone can't afford to stay alive, why do they deserve to live?You get what you pay for. If you can't afford to pay, well... I suppose it's polite to pretend that it was nice knowing you, but you aren't much use anymore, are you?And if you disagree with all of the above statements, great! Politics takes money. If someone can't afford a lobbyist or a campaign, why do they deserve to have an opinion?
Jackson Herring: error 303: I got a breaking news alert on my phone from CNN that the individual mandate was struck down, then a correction 15 minutes later.You suck so hard CNN. I hope people lose their jobs over this one.CNN - The president has been shot.Correction - The president has shot a personal best three under par this weekend.Delete the CNN app and get the AP News app.
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.
Corvus: MY JUSTIFICATION OF IT BEING A TAX WAS RIGHT!How many farkers on here attacked me for saying that?
lousyskater: jayhawk88: Man I can't wait until my nutjob extended family members get home tonight and start tearing up Facebook.It has already started on my end. POPCORN TIME.

Yakk: Free Republics servers have blown up, this will be added to the conspiracy mix.
Smeggy Smurf: 3 of the 4 boxes have failed. Time to break out the 4th box. Good thing I've been teaching the boys how to do it as well.
GeeksAreMyPeeps: MasterThief: 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.And that is how the GOP and FoxNews will spin this
bulldg4life: Not if he has health insurance.Just like a million other things he could do to receive tax credits.
Lernaeus: /looking forward to more "suck it" kindness and compassion from the left today
Epicedion: Free Republic post headings:Will John Roberts be remembered in history the same as Benedict Arnold?Today is The Day U.S. Citizens Became Slaves of Their GovernmentObamaCare ruling means Americans hostage to 70 years of Supreme Court madness
HulkHands: Can't force you to have health insurance, but they can tax you for it
Thunderpipes: 17. Individual Mandate Excise Tax (Jan 2014): Starting in 2014, anyone not buying "qualifying" health insurance must pay an income surtax according to the higher of the following90% of HSA plans will not qualify by the way. Remember when you could keep your current insurance? 14 million people use HSA plans. So over 12 million people will be forced to drop their plans or pay more just on that alone.It is a loss for Obama, Vodka posting moron. He will lost millions of votes because of this. The Medicaid part screws his plans, and all America loses. This is bad news, for Obama.
weave: What's best about this is the wingnuts planned the word Obamacare to be a derogatory term but now it will live for decades as a term giving a Democrat credit for something that they'll never be able to get rid of because people would go ape about it.
Evil Mackerel: 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.Advise him not to breed./Please.
canyoneer: Not surprising.First SCOTUS ruled that the state can seize your property and turn it over to a corporation of its choosing.Then it ruled that corporations can spend unlimited money to influence the political process.Now it has ruled that the state can force you to buy a product from a corporation of its choosing.If you object to any of this, there is a law on the books (which no one has "standing" to challenge) which allows the state to declare you a "terrorist" based on secret evidence that you are not allowed to see, and based on this to subject you to indefinite detention and/or extra-judicial execution.Sounds like everything is in place now.
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.
Jackpot777: * shakes tiny impotent fist of rage *
StreetlightInTheGhetto: I really,really,really,really hope so.
dwrash: Striking down the medicaid expansion part is going to make implementation interesting..
dwrash: Striking down the medicaid expansion part is going to make implementation interesting.. since we know the Republicans will not do anything to fill that gap.
jayhawk88: Man I can't wait until my nutjob extended family members get home tonight and start tearing up Facebook.
Aphostile: Only in America will so many people get their panties in a bunch over something that will help so many in need.
vpb: MasterThief: 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.Except that the tax is only on people who don't get insurance. So no, he didnt' unless you think all or most of the middle class will refuse insurance.
pacochu: Obama should land on a hospital roof in a Life Flight helicopter while wearing a paramedics uniform.
Glenford: Epicedion: Free Republic post headings:Will John Roberts be remembered in history the same as Benedict Arnold?Today is The Day U.S. Citizens Became Slaves of Their GovernmentObamaCare ruling means Americans hostage to 70 years of Supreme Court madnessOnly in America, where ensuring that citizens have health care is seen as tyranny.You people are well and truly farked.
zipdog: Derek Force: 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
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: John Roberts siding with the left wing of the court... MY GOD! THE MAYANS WERE RIGHT!
m1ke: Yay more taxes to pay!!!!
