Waldo Pepper: 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?so what if you are healthy and simply pay for whatever doctor visits you need at the time you are penalized by the government for not buy a product/service?
drgloryboy: 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?YesThis will mean you will be waiting for six hours because now everyone will at least have Medicaid insurance that no primary care doctors will take. This means 20 million more people will be going to the ER for both non-emergent concerns and for emergent conditions that they normally wouldn't have gone to the ER before the mandate for fear of going bankrupt. As an ER doc I will no longer be required to provide government mandated charity care as we as a nation will pay for those unable to afford insurance and will require those who can afford insurance to have it. Looks like I won't be having a problem staying busy at work.
bhcompy: bdub77: Doesn't matter. Americans got health care. This is a win for the American people, not just Obama. Obama will now go down as the first president who got Americans health care. His legacy in that regard, not to mention countless other things he's done as president, will solidify him as one of the greats.And yes I expect him to fully whip Romney's ass in November.Err, Americans didn't get health care. They got told to buy it, or else. Single payer would be Americans getting health care. This is a clusterfark, and it is not "Americans getting healthcare".
DontMakeMeComeBackThere: Sad how many people here are happy, not because the court ruling was good, but just because the Republicans "lost".You guys really need to get a life.
rcantley: Today's ruling underscores the urgency of repealing this harmful law in its entirety. - John Boehner.Fark you in your orange ass.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: NowhereMon: LOL free republic is melting down$10 says they call for Roberts to be impeached (or worse).
Planterz: Phinn: Really, anyone with two brain cells to rub together can avoid all federal taxes. It's really not that hard.Ah, finally the Cons show up to "love" their country with all of the respect and responsibility of enjoying a four course meal and driving away when the bill comes.What models for society!
ps69: [dailydish.typepad.com image 477x161]He just killed teh freedoms.
Kuroshin: There has been a new, punitive tax created, but no tax increases for anybody.
Dimensio: Please explain how, exactly, my taxes will be increased.

TIKIMAN87: Obama has just destroyed this country.
indylaw: I don't have much of a political or legal opinion on the merit of the Court's decision, but I look forward to two straight weeks of hyperbole, insurrection bluffs and greasy moron tears.
dognose4: So, the new tax on healthy people (that don't want or need health insurance) stands.
ignatius_crumbcake: Tomorrow's headline: "Mitt Romney says Obamacare was his idea from the beginning."
praymantis: It's a tax, it's a tax, it's a tax tax tax.
NateGrey: Republicans keep saying this is a huge tax increase.I have Employer paid health insurance.How much is the tax I will have to pay Contards?/Listening to Glenn Beck currently
cameroncrazy1984: Ned Stark: cameroncrazy1984: Ned Stark: Obama's reelection is assured, major Republican victories in 16 and 18 likely as log term effects of bill become apparent. You read it here first.You also said it would be struck down as unconstitutional. Excuse me if I decide to disregard your prediction.I said I hoped it would be, and that it would be good for the country if it was.That's not the same.You also hope that the long-term effects of covering more people will be detrimental to the country. You're equally as wrong on that.
bongmiester: So does this mean that Rush Limbaugh is finally moving to Costa Rica?
Anagrammer: OK, So the HUGE Obama tax increase on everyone, including those who make under $250,000/yr. is legal.I'd prefer that they decided against the HUGE Obama tax increase, but it looks like the HUGE Obama tax increase is here to stay.
cameroncrazy1984: Some nutball congressman called it the largest tax increase on the poor and middle class in American history. Notwithstanding the fact that the poor already get healthcare and likely will not be taxed.
Kit Fister: Does it count if we opposed it because it was a bandaid rather than a true fix for the actual problems with our healthcare system, and a massive waste of money compared to actually fixing anything?
randomjsa: So all the people who thought that it being struck down would be the best thing ever for Obama are now going "holy crap now we're in trouble"?
Jackson Herring: What a boner that was! Can you believe that time GHWB pulled that huge boner?
Don't Troll Me Bro!: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: NowhereMon: LOL free republic is melting down$10 says they call for Roberts to be impeached (or worse).Why would they do that? Obama would get to appoint another justice, who would surely be more liberal than Roberts.
Lucky LaRue: 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.My coworker's reaction:Me - Did you hear?Her - Hear what?Me - The Supreme Court upheld the entire law.Her - Oh... What law was that?Me - Um.. Obamacare.Her - Oh - I thought the already decided that.
praymantis: It's a tax, it's a tax, it's a tax tax tax. Obama and Democrats raised taxes on all the lower and middle class people in the US. IT'S A TAX! Per the SCOTUS.Oh where are all the liberals biatching about 5-4 decisions today?
