the opposite of charity is justice: Romney "repeal and replace Obamacare" speech. Long on the former, no details on the latter.Well, except that healthcare reform must include coverage for pre-existing conditions. Which Obamacare already has. Its like he is a logistics vampire and details are his garlic.
Weaver95: mr lawson: LOL...... Premiums are going to go Through the roof!/be careful what you wish for, ya might just get ityou mean that premiums weren't going to go up all on their own anyway?
bulldg4life: do you not know why health insurance and medical costs have been spiraling out of control for the past several decades?
wraithmare: I love that Freeper posts calling for blood to be spilled and open revolution are being pulled by moderators. Why does the Free Republic hate the First Amendment?!?! WHAR MY RIGHTS??? WHAR???
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.
Daveism: Lernaeus: /looking forward to more "suck it" kindness and compassion from the left todayKeep hitting us with bricks and you expect hugs and kisses in return? fark you in the ass sideways with a screwdriver. How's that for kindness and compassion? Call us un-American, traitors, communists, and every other term you can think of to denigrate us? We're soldiers, nurses, police officers, emergency management officials and non-profit child welfare workers - and that's just in my damn immediate family.WE'RE the ones expected to turn the other cheek? fark you. Your side clings to Jesus so much, where's the "turning of the cheek" that YOU'RE supposed to be so famous for? (also, didn't he have something to say about helping those less fortunate?)Our kindness and compassion is reserved for those that actually deserve it.
muck4doo: Weaver95: mr lawson: LOL...... Premiums are going to go Through the roof!/be careful what you wish for, ya might just get ityou mean that premiums weren't going to go up all on their own anyway?As a fellow libertarian, I'm sure you must be cuming your shorts over news of more taxes. Isn't this an awesome day?
Serious Black: Aetna's stock is down 4.3% today. WellPoint's stock is down 6.45% today. UnitedHealth's stock is down 3% today. You think they're happy about the ruling?
schattenteufel: TIKIMAN87: Obama has just destroyed this country.lol. explain.
Dancin_In_Anson: SevenizGud: Great, now I get to buy health care insurance for another 16 million losers.No, you get a tax increase.
Phinn: Because of government mandates and restrictions on employer-based health insurance, along with a similar level of control over doctors and hospitals.
sweetmelissa31: muck4doo: w00t! More taxes! Hooray!Are you outing yourself as one of the people whose ass we have to cover when you have an accident and expect treatment but didn't buy insurance?

mr lawson: Weaver95: mr lawson: LOL...... Premiums are going to go Through the roof!/be careful what you wish for, ya might just get ityou mean that premiums weren't going to go up all on their own anyway?Oh...they were to be sure...but now the insurance have a "captive" audience./oligopoly for the win
Aikidogamer: I find it interesting that sever-ability is now infered to be a part of legislation if it is not there...
The guiding principle is this according to a report on statutory interpretation from the Congressional Research Service quoting a ruling in Alaska Airlines, Inc. v. Brock, 480 U.S. 678, 684 (1987) (quoting Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1, 108 (1976)). "Unless it is evident that the Legislature would not have enacted those provisions which are within its power, independently of that which is not, the invalid part may be dropped if what is left is fully operative as a law." link
brobdiggy: It amazes me that so many of you think this is a great thing. It's just the government getting its foot in the door to have even greater power.1. Government makes everyone have health care, and starts to pay for many more people's health care.2. Government realizes this actually will increase the cost of health care. Needs to reign in costs.3. Government tells people "We pay for your health care, so we can dictate your health".4. Government bans Cheetos, DQ Blizzards, and King Size Candy Bars.// this has already started with the large soda bans.// so much for freedom of choice.

Isn't this an awesome day?it's not like I could have done anything to stop it...and ACA is a valid step towards fixing what we laughingly call our health care system. is it perfect? nope. is it needed? yup.
Serious Black: The free market has already said that sick people can't be covered because there is no way to make voluntary coverage for them actuarially sound.

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.
Mathematics of Wonton Burrito Meals: 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.Wait, the poor already get healthcare? Then why did we need to pass Obamacare?
WombatControl: And all this bullshiat being spewed about the "profit motive" is crap - free markets work because they assume rational self interest.
WombatControl: In a system like the one Canada has, you couldn't get that care at all without going to the black market. Finally, the Canadian Supreme Court struck that system down as a gross violation of human rights.

wildstarr: So I am taking volunteers from all of you who supported this to either a) pay my tax for being uninsured or b) pay for my insurance.Whatever you want. I'll let you decide.

MurphyMurphy: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Wow. He really sucks at this.Assuming you mean rmoney, I sincerely wanted to listen to what he had to say.I'm not sure if it was the manufactured and intentional derp, or that he has evolved some ability to make my attention drift just with teh sound of his voice, but yeah... he really sucks at this.Him and John Kerry should do books on tape. I could throw my Ambien in the trash.
inner ted: d3sertion: inner ted:there is so much fail there, all in just two sentences./hint for you sherlock: most middle class will refuse it cause the CAN'T AFFORD IT.//the stupid, it hurts. too bad i can't afford insurance to get it looked at.What the hell are you talking about? Most middle class people don't have health insurance now? You need to check your facts, clown.even fewer will have it now when their employer drops their current coverage and they can't afford to buy it on their own.that's what the hell i'm talking about, clown.
SandMann: So, any doctors thinking about moving their practices to another country? If so, which one? Early retirement? Career change?
Sid_the_sadist: I'm going to quit my job and go on welfare now. fark you guys, you pay for my shiat from now on. Including my healthcare.
Phinn: Serious Black: The free market has already said that sick people can't be covered because there is no way to make voluntary coverage for them actuarially sound.Which free market was that?
Weaver95: ACA is a valid step towards fixing
