Show them we can do better, Fark.

My VCOM (Very Conservative Office Mate) is flipping over today's decision. I asked him if he hated the freedom of insuring his kids (he has a lot) until they're 26. He said of course not. I asked him if my daughter, who has a pre-existing condition (asthma) should be denied insurance when she becomes independent because of that. He said of course not. I then asked what he objected to, and he told me we were all going to lose our insurance and be forced to buy government insurance and we wouldn't be allowed to see our own doctors anymore, but would instead have to go to whomever the government tells us to. Plus we would have to pay thousands more every year to pay for insurance for illegal immigrants.

This is how people "think".

Impeach Roberts.

*

Did Roberts wake up next to a horse head one morning?

*

America is gone.
The most horrendous monster of a law that the world has ever seen has now been cemented into place.
There may still be a nation named America but we can now kiss goodbye to prosperity as we used to know it.
Minimum 16% extra tax, and that's just for starters.
If only "the poor" would be asked to pay their fair share, but I suspect that will never happen.
Everybody pays for everyone else = "the rich" (anybody who pays taxes) pays for everyone who don't.
In order to "save" 30 million uninsured (allegedly) the other 280 million are now to be strangled, slowly.

*

Look on the bright side.

At least we can now run ads until the election saying Obama and the Democrats have imposed the largest tax increase in American history.

They can now run ads of death panels.

They can now run ads of legislation that will increase premiums.

They can now Throw Grandma off the cliff and blame the Democrats.

*

We are all now officially slaves owned by and for the U.S. Federal Government.

*

This just in on the News Wires:

"Supreme Court Consumes Bath Salts and in Zombie-Like Attack Eat the Constitution".


Anyone who has health care with an employer just lost it today. Your employer will pay the fine and you will be dumped into the health care pool. Your salary will go up little to none, but your taxes will go up big time to pay for all the deadbeats. The hard working poeple just lost big time! I just hope the unions also are subject to be dumped in the pool with the rest of us!

*

I have never been more ashamed of my country. Today my country is dead to me.

Long live Texas!

*

Roberts is a GD'd Traitor! Thanks for nothing, W.

*

Roberts betrayed us.
Kennedy wanted to strike the whole thing down.

Kennedy said the whole thing is unconstitutional which it is.

Bush should have picked Janice Rogers Brown.

We need a 2nd revolution. This is tyranny

*

John Robert's poison legacy: Mexican takeover of America, and Socialist dictatorship. IMPEACH this traitorous bastard.

*

This is why elections count. To all the imbeciles who stayed at home and allowed this socialist would be dictator to become president; how do you like the new taxes that are being crammed down your throat?

Nobody knows how hard they are being hammered by this outrage. We have been effectively raped by our own government.

*

The only problem that Liberals have with the history of chattel slavery in the America is that the slaves were privately owned.

*

The law was not written or constructed with the mandate as a tax. If the mandate is a tax then the law should have to be rewritten and sent back through the process. Written as a mandate the law is now invalid. Try to get it through as a tax.

If not, then slaves have risen up throughout history. It might be time for civil disobedience and whatever else needed to remove the entire population of politicians from their perches. Enough of this crap. If representatives no longer represent us then let them be removed.


This next one nearly killed me:

It's time to start viewing the federal government with hostility.

*

This is fascism. Welcome to the Fourth Reich.

*

The Confederate States of America doesn't look so bad now, does it?

*

"This is why elections count. To all the imbeciles who stayed at home and allowed this socialist would be dictator to become president; how do you like the new taxes that are being crammed down your throat?
They are as culpable as the blithering morons who pulled the lever to elect this dictator."

How about imbeciles who supported the architect of Obamneycare as the GOP nominee? They should be happy today. Their guy's ideas won.

*

This is going to bring about a revolution. Got your guns ready?

*

Roberts should say it like it is: congress passed the law, not me. Be mad at congress, not the court.
BULLshiat....he was a Stealth Marxist all along

IMPEACH ROBERTS

*

If the Constitution was not a dead letter before today, it is now. There are no longer any constraints whatsoever on the power of the government as against the individual, nor does it recognize any.

We are indeed, for all intents and purposes, slaves of our government, to dispose of as they see fit.

And I for one will act as any slave would; they will only get the bare minimum out of me. It's off to Galt's Gulch.

*

In shock. Who knew Roberts was a lib..and a coward.

*

No only disgusting, but this ensures Obama will win in November....
Roomey will win now

*

"...but this ensures Obama will win in November...."

On the contrary, this has awakened a sleeping giant. Now, anyone who does not get out and vote against Obama is officially an enemy of the United States.

*

OBAMACARE = SLAVERY

repeat often to everyone.

OBAMACARE = SLAVERY

that is out talking point.

now vote out every single democrat.

*

Will somebody please ping me wrt location, time, etc., of commencement of our rioting.

*

I will not vote ever again for the GOP rather I will vote for the most liberal/socialists/leftists etc candidate from now on.
Voting any other way will not matter as it will be a waste of time and a vote.....

Above post is totally emotional reaction....


This next one makes sense since their entire economic policy is based on the dreams of a 13-year old...

A 4th grader can see that this is not Constitutional.

If the government can do this, what the F can't it do to us?

*

When and Where is the first anti-slavery rally?

OBAMACARE = SLAVERY

*

If the GOP is smart...
I see a flaw in your statement.Ed: so do I

*

RIP America.

*

Could John Roberts have been "blackmailed"? It may not be as farfetched as it sounds!
I think my husband and I are going to sell our home and his business. We are going to buy a camper and become gypsies! I am NOT giving one more damn dime to any of these marxists!

*

We now have to demand of any elected Representative and Senator that they will not get our vote unless they promise to repeal this monstrosity...or our freedom is lost forever.

*

Sorry to say, if you think this is ever going away, you're tilting at windmills. There is no way this is ever being repealed.

*

"prepare yourselves.."

My fellow American, we have been preparing for a civil revolution since 2008!

The freeloaders will not give up theirs without a serious fight and God willing, the good American people will give them a fight they won't soon forget. the fighting won't end until the American people take back their Constitutional government.

The adverse decision from SCOTUS is exactly what our forefathers feared in creating another government when they wrote the Constitution in the first place. Their fears have come true, unfortunately, the American people will have to again pick up arms to repel another oppressive tyrannical government.

Prepared, you bet your a$$!!!!

*

So, the federal government CAN mandate commerce, they simply need to represent it is a negative tax: Do this or else get taxed. So much for the US Constitution.

Since the federal government refuses to obey the constitution we should too! REVOLT!!!

WhyteRaven74: Waldo Pepper: I guess I just think this whole thing is a scam and we are all being taken for a ride.

Yes because we're all as dumb as you to think "Well hey, nothing's gonna happen to me, and regular doctor visits? For pussies".


Solving our healthcare woes is a problem with business model. I answered this question at length like four or five pages back but I guess everyone was too busy fecklessly arguing that it got lost in there.

He is right though, this is a scam. It's a preemptive bailout for the health insurance industry because they are trying to protect themselves from low-market alternatives from rising up and disrupting them. This doesn't even solve the fundamental issue that healthcare is too expensive. The only way to address that is via disruption not making everyone have healthcare which is just going to turn into a massive clusterfark at the end of the day for everyone financially. That's the short uncomplicated answer. Adding more debt on the existing deficit is not the solution, and since people are now more educated via the internet and are wising up to the need for financial education, people are recognizing this bullshiat for what it is, hence the outrage.

I used to be 20 years old and a dumb naive idealist who worshiped Michael Moore but then I actually learned about how the world and realized something: You can't spend what you don't have. If we follow through on this (which I highly doubt this is likely going to get shot down before it even gets a chance to take effect) then it will only make things worse down the road rather than better for reasons that I already elaborated on in an earlier post so go back and read that if you want a more comprehensive view of how to fix this shiat and why Obamacare doesn't work.

Obamacare isn't perfect, but it's a hell of a lot better than the alternative being offered by the Republicans.

Here's a car analogy: Suppose your old car is on its last legs, and you need to buy new one. So, you shop around for a while, and you decide on a five year old minivan with about 80,000 miles on the clock. It's not great, but it's safe and reliable. But your teenage son hates the minivan. He hates it so much that he's worked himself into an irrational rage, and one day he decides to go out to the garage and set the minivan on fire, in a fit of adolescent spite and stupidity. But John Roberts is driving by and puts out the fire last minute, and takes your son's matches away too. So now your teenage son is livid, and holds a press conference where he says that the day he turns 18 he's going to buy some more matches and burn that damned minivan and the garage it's in down to the ground, and then he's going to buy a newer more awesome car with all the money he makes at his part time job at gamestop.

And nearly half of America supports your son, because they hate the minivan too, and they would rather walk than ride around in a car driven by a black person.

WombatControl: Here's a clue: health insurance is not health care. All "universal" or "single-payer" systems work by rationing care. You want treatment for your rare cancer? Some government bureaucrat will determine that the treatment isn't cost effective, and you will either die waiting for it, or you'll never be given the chance. Not only do you end up dead in that scenario, but new and innovative treatments never get developed because said bureaucrat won't pay for them. Oh, but you have "free" health insurance - just not free health care.

Nothing is free. Health care is not free, and it can't be made free by government fiat. If the liberals got their way we'd have a system in which everyone but the ultra rich who could afford private insurace (or black-market care) is stuck waiting in lines for treatments they may never get.

If the statists got their way and we magically had an NHS-style system in the United States there would be riots in the streets because Americans do not take kindly to the government dictating to them what they can and cannot have. At least those Americans who still believe in the spirit of this nation's Founding, anyway.

/I'm sure this has been posted already.
//Can't be posted enough.

Sorry I am a libertarian not a conservative. Freedom is the only thing that means anything everything else is a byproduct of freedom. Again freedom died today people that are celebrating its death are idiots.

I know tons of self-labeled libertarians. Why is economic freedom so much more important that social freedom? My libertarian friends talk about how they vote Republican because the Republicans want "freedom" - but what they mean is "economic freedom". The Republican Party doesn't want freedom of reproductive choice, freedom of religious choice, or freedom of marriage. If you vote for a Republican, you are implicitly saying that money-related "freedom" is more important than your freedom to do as you please with your own body or in your own bedroom. That's fine if you believe that, but own up to it.


democrats no more believe in freedom than the current incarnation of the gop. they believe in freedom to do what you want as long as it doesn't conflict with the goals of the collective or how they think you should live your life. this is why true authoritarians like weaver feel so comfortable making the switch.

they want just want to slide what is morally acceptable open a bit, but don't for a second conflate that with true freedom. liberals definitely believe the government has the constitutional ability and more than that the obligation to restrict freedom as it sees fit to forward the goals of the collective.

they don't believe in any personal freedom whatsoever. the freedom to do with your body what you want only extends to things they deem moral. they don't have a problem with killing fetus, so you can do that. its got jackshiat to do with personal autonomy. that's why drugs are illegal, sex with your llama is illegal, sex with your sister is illegal. they don't want people to be free to marry anyone they want. they want people to be free to marry who they think is morally acceptable.

they have the exact same categorical failings as republicans, but at least some republicans in many regards can be said to favor the individual rights over the collective in all conflicts.

yes the republican party is dominated right now by the religious right who we need to dump on their asses, but democrats are inherently authoritarian and think all personal autonomy is up for regulation if it conflicts with the goals of the collective.

this is observable by everyone with a brain stem, and that is why true libertarians still side with conservatives more often than not. religious based moralism as practiced by the gop is abhorrent, but it is not immutable and there is the undercurrent of individualism still running through the party that will some day rise again; while collectivism can't exist under any other terms.

"Buy this or else be taxed..." Laws
June 28, 2012, 12:00:49 PM CDT · by CodeToad

Since the government can now demand citizens buy something or else be taxed for it, and we have previously said this on FR but I wanted to re-introduce it, the Republicans should mandate the following taxes. Buy this Or Else Be Taxed: 1. Guns, one per year per family. Tax for not doing so: $1,000. 2. A Bible, one for each family member. Penalty: $1,000 per Bible not purchased.


Okay, but the regulation on guns is that they must not be capable of firing a bullet that can pierce the skin. It's NERF or nothing!

ObamaCare - Explain It Like I'm Five by captainpixystick

Bob: Hi, insurance company. I'd like to buy some health insurance.

Insurance company: No. You had cancer when you were 3 years old, and the cancer could come back. We're not selling you health insurance.

Bob: It's not my fault I got cancer when I was three! Besides, that was years ago!

Insurance company: If we sell insurance to you, we'll probably lose money, and we're not doing it.

Bob: But I need insurance more than anyone! My cancer might come back!

Insurance company: We don't care. We're not selling you insurance.

Obama: Hey, that's totally not fair. Bob is right, he does need insurance! Sell Bob some insurance.

Insurance company: If we have to, I guess.

Mary: This is cool. Obama said the insurance company has to sell insurance to anyone who needs it.

Sam: Hey, I have an idea. I'm going to stop paying for health insurance. If I get sick, I can always go buy some insurance then. The insurance company won't be able to say no, because Obama's told them they have to sell it to anyone who needs it!

Dave: That's a great idea! I'm not paying for health insurance either, at least not until I get sick.

Insurance company: Hey! If everyone stops paying for insurance, we'll go bankrupt!

Obama: Oh come on Sam and Dave, that's not fair either.

Dave: I don't care. It saves me money.

Obama:(Facepalm) Oh for god's sake. Sam, Dave, you have to keep paying for health insurance, and not wait until you're sick. You too, Mary and Bob.

Mary:But I'm broke! I can't buy insurance! I just don't have any money.

Obama: Mary, show me your piggy bank.

(Mary Breaks it Open)

Obama: Oh, wow, you really are broke. Ok, tell you what. You still have to buy insurance, but I'll help you pay 95% of the cost.

Mary: Thank you!

Obama: I need an aspirin.

Insurance company: We're not paying for that aspirin.

**FLASHBACK after credits**:

All the People:
Wait! Won't this just mean we all give money to the companies and they keep it all?

Obama: No, they will be required to spend 85% of what they get paid in premiums on actual healthcare.

Since there's no way I'll ever reach the end of this thread from my mobile device, I'd like to say a couple of things before I give up and actually do some work here at the office...

As a liberal, socialist-leaning American progressive, I'd like to extend my gratitude to Chief Justice Roberts for making the right decision. I'm not even going to cynically assume that calling it a tax was throwing a bone to Republicans, but instead was an honest read of the Act's functional mechanism.

Even a lower-middle-class socialist like myself understands that to have things, they have to be paid for; and if government does it, I know I'll be on the hook to help pay the costs. Until I can sink my current monthly health insurance payments into a Single-Payer socialized plan like I want, I'm willing to play by the PPACA rules as protection against the denial-of-coverage whims of for-profit medical insurance companies. Maybe I'll go broke paying my deductibles one day, but at least I'll get treatments without being shafted with the whole bill.

I'd also like to congratulate you, John, on perpetrating the most epic troll of the sociopathic, small-minded conservatards; leaving them to STFU and stop using the word "Unconstitutional" before the word "Obamacare" when barking out their rote-memorized talking points. Even as the din of their roar toward you slowly drowns out the fact that you were the only one of the five Yeas who said "it's a tax" versus the others who said "it's interstate commerce," know that those of us who may hold a grudge for the wrong decision you supported on Citizens United, we're adult enough to appreciate the sober decision made here; one squarely to the advantage of America's most vulnerable citizens.

In conclusion, I just want to say thank-you in clearest terms. So, thank you. More decisions like this, please.

WombatControl: 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.

WHISKY. TANGO. FOXTROT.

Really? Now Americans have health care? You mean no one in this country had health care prior to Obama? Is this what you really think?

Here's a clue: health insurance is not health care. All "universal" or "single-payer" systems work by rationing care. You want treatment for your rare cancer? Some government bureaucrat will determine that the treatment isn't cost effective, and you will either die waiting for it, or you'll never be given the chance. Not only do you end up dead in that scenario, but new and innovative treatments never get developed because said bureaucrat won't pay for them. Oh, but you have "free" health insurance - just not free health care.

Nothing is free. Health care is not free, and it can't be made free by government fiat. If the liberals got their way we'd have a system in which everyone but the ultra rich who could afford private insurace (or black-market care) is stuck waiting in lines for treatments they may never get.

If the statists got their way and we magically had an NHS-style system in the United States there would be riots in the streets because Americans do not take kindly to the government dictating to them what they can and cannot have. At least those Americans who still believe in the spirit of this nation's Founding, anyway.


Taxation without representation and religious intolerance? You could buy tea if you wanted, you just had to pay a higher tax on it. The British didn't ban the sale of tea.

This nonsense about people waiting in lines and dying for healthcare is hilarious. The system will be no different than it is now, except those people who come in off the streets who couldn't pay for important live-saving procedures will now not have to survive off of the teat of the hospital.

Just because everyone gets the same care doesn't mean that a doctor will pay more attention to the guy with a splinter more than the guy with a heart condition. These types of arguments completely ignore how care priority works in hospitals.

Roberts surprised me. He surprised me in that he didn't read his own opinion. His opinion basically says that congress not only has the power to tax, but the power to tax individuals arbitrarily.

His decision seems to say that Congress decides what lifestyles are and are not fair to tax. Where does this line of reasoning end? "Oh, you haven't voted in the last election, that's another 1% on your tax bill."... "Oh, you didn't exercise regularly this year, that's another 1% effective tax rate."... "Oh you didn't purchase anything on Amazon this year, that's another 1%"

You might look at my hyperbole and be dismissive, but that's essentially the door that Roberts opened. He opened the door to most any individual lifestyle and/or individual financial decision to be taxable.

Very bad decision. I don't mind health care, I don't even mind government-run health care. Just for farks sake, let the individual opt-out of it, let individual freedom rule over this stupid legislation that wasn't even read.

I then asked what he objected to, and he told me we were all going to lose our insurance and be forced to buy government insurance and we wouldn't be allowed to see our own doctors anymore, but would instead have to go to whomever the government tells us to. Plus we would have to pay thousands more every year to pay for insurance for illegal immigrants.

I guess you Republicans didn't think your cunning Catholicizing the SCOTUS plan through. Only Ron Paul was smart enough to figure out how to get abortion banned. You do it by removing federal court review over abortion laws at all levels of government.

I won't praise our health care system, don't get me wrong. I'd say your system is definitely superior in quality and wait times. I'm saying it makes sense when you have a bunch of people paying into a single system, managed by the government (think of the unemployment system), that allows most of your basic health care needs to be met, your ambulance and emergency visits, doctors visits and hospital stays. If you have a population who aren't afraid to go to the doctor anymore to get something fixed before it becomes a problem you'll have a healthier general population and a more productive population.

Say what you will about conservatives, but I have to admire how awesome the echo chamber is at getting out their message.

Obamacare went from "it's unconstitutional!" to "It's a tax!" in 2 seconds flat across the board on every conservative news site, twitter account, radio station, and of course FOX. My red state relatives are already repeating it.

I remember when it was going through congress and the phrase was "it's being shoved down our throats!"... and you could tell who watched conservative news because they not only used similar words (or similar arguments), but the EXACT SAME WORDING VERBATIM to state their case. If you pay attention to it you can see the pattern repeating across issues again and again.

It's a little unnerving actually.

Do you understand that generally liberals and Democrats don't see taxes as fundamentally the worst possible thing ever?

That we understand we're part of a society, and that we'll get a greater benefit through the effects of the law and the mandate than we would through NO TAXES AGAIN EVER? That we don't worship Grover Norquist, and that we realize that there are more important things out there, like public health and health insurance and health care reform to improve the massive privatized sinkhole it has become in the last few decades?

nickerj1: Ginsburg, writing separately for the four liberals, said they would have upheld the mandate under the commerce clause too. "Unlike the market for almost any other product or service, the market for medical care is one in which all individuals inevitably participate," she wrote. "Virtually every person residing in the United States, sooner or later, will visit a doctor or other health care professional."

This is why some of these Justices need to be dismissed from the bench. Your logic is false, woman. You admit it in the second statement when you use the word "virtually". Not every individual is an actor in the medical care market because: I can go to another country and get health care; I can render my own health care; I can never use health care. And before you invoke Wickard v Filburn and argue all three of those options "affect" the medical care market, we both Wickard was the wrong decision. Robert's opinion is correct, in that it is not valid under the Commerce clause.

We are now all slaves.

 Welcome to the Communist States of America.

This nation is D.O.N.E. Now, all we need is for 0BowMao to be re-elected to put the final fork in it. It was a nice run since 1776. Will the last person out of this failing Ameritopia please turn off the lights?


The republic has officially ended. We are now officially a fascist democracy, and it will devolve into a tyrannical autocracy.


Roberts is more evil than Obama. He pretended to be a conservative, but he is nothing more than another beltway liberal who is more interested in cultivating his Washington society friendships than he is in protecting the Constitution, or the rights and liberties of Americans.

He is worse than Souter, he is the Chief Justice as well as being a traitor.
R.I.P. America


Every judge voting in favor of this should be impeached. They just torched the constitution.


Its time to join your local militia. Buy ammo and stock up on food too.

What does Obama have on Roberts?


I don't care if this gets nuked by a mod:
Roberts is a flaming farking bag of douche and has the legal mind of a pile of dogshiat.
If we're going to live in a socialist dictatorship I hope we at least get some snappy uniforms to wear.

 Now, anyone who does not get out and vote against Obama is officially an enemy of the United States.

I won't. I WILL NOT SUCCUMB TO THEIR SLAVERY ANYMORE!
If they darken my door they won't leave. My line has been drawn in the sand.
They can kiss my ass. 

OBAMACARE = SLAVERY

Will somebody please ping me wrt location, time, etc., of commencement of our rioting.

Great. Now we can look forward to doctors immediately closing up shop while patients will be left to be treated by Obama-voting, unqualified, affirmative-action hacks who can barely speak English working in government clinics.

It's a good day to be a Communist.

remembering that Roberts was the Justice who swore obama into office the second time, and in secrecy...why the secrecy?

There is no reason that a law could not be passed now that says
"you must buy 5 pounds of broccoli per month or pay a $100 fine"

It's way past time for a tax revolt in this country. Refuse to file, refuse to pay and refuse to become slaves!
Come and take it assholes! 

The language and the smirk tell you what this was about all along, and even 0bama alluded to it long ago.

It's reparations. 0bama said that he didn't favor a reparations payment, but instead preferred implementing perpetual social programs that achieved more wealth transfer in perpetuity, all the while keeping the race-grievance industry alive.

Looks like my prepping will be going into overdrive. If dear leader gets re-elected, he'll milk the legal standard this sets so much he'll make Hitler look like an amateur.

Welcome to full-blown Socialism!
America is no longer a Democratic Republic. Well, George, Ben, Thomas: we tried. Made it over a little more than 200 years, but your American Experiment is over. 

The last straw has just been placed on this citizen's back.
This is no longer the country of limited government as designed and demanded by the founders.
Secession has to tried again.
We have half the country which wants to live off the other half. Half believes the moral high ground is killing the unborn. Half the country hates the military while claiming to support it. Half the country completely disagrees with the founders brilliance of limited government.
We cannot resolve these differences EVER at the voting booth. Only a divorce between the parasites and the body of producers is a viable solution.

His campaign promise that he would not raise taxes on anybody earning over (what was it?) $250,000 has now just been verified by SCOTUS as a lie. He just raised taxes on the poorest of the poor. I wonder if Roberts intentionally gave the Repubes a campaign issue to hammer on Obama with.

Let me tell a story about why this is a good thing: 15 years ago my mother got cancer. She fought hard and won. Complete remission/surgery to remove lumps. Immediately after her surgery she was dropped from her insurance. Following her cancer, she continued to work (ran her own restaurant) but was not able to purchase health insurance. She tried everywhere, was willing to pay huge sums of money, but not a single insurer would give her a plan due to "preexisting conditions." 3 years ago she started to recognize the signs that something was wrong. She went for a blood test and boom, she had cancer again, but couldn't get it treated. Her only option was disability, something she had avoided last time because she wanted to continue to work. It took 2 years for her to get disability by that time her previously treatable cancer had become stage 4 terminal cancer. She is continuing to fight, about to start her 4th round of chemo/radiation. If she was able to get insurance before this happened not only would there be a good chance they could have cured it, but it would have been less expensive for the entire health care system. I'm telling that story to every idiot that says something stupid about the ruling today.

I love it. Teabaggers go on & on about how much they hate "Obamacare"

But if you ask them if they like the idea of preventing insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, and they're in favor.

if you ask them if they supported requiring companies with more than 50 employees to provide insurance for their employees, and they're all for it.

If you ask them if they favored allowing children to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26, they're mostly cool with that.

If you ask them if they're in favor of mandatory health insurance for all Americans, and they're AGAINST it. However, if you ask them how the uninsured people should be handled, their answer is pretty much "Let them crash"

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).


My understanding is it's basically like a tax incentive, but in reverse...you get the "incentive" to buy health insurance by paying a surcharge on your taxes if you DON'T buy it. That's basicallly how Romneycare works in Mass, at least.

I was surprised at the ruling, was expecting a 5-4 shootdown, personally.

As for the "scabby bandage" analogy someone else used, I agree...but this particular scabby bandage was originally proposed by conservatives, then co-opted by liberals. Meanwhile, the original conservatives have neither come up with anything better nor summoned the intestinal fortitude to get rid of things like Medicare.

So, it's better than nothing...I hope.

WombatControl: 1.) This just energized the living fark out of the GOP base. It was ObamaCare that motivated the Tea Party in 2010. Now it's going to do the same in 2012.

2.) It just took away their "RomneyCare" attacks. (Yes, the whole "RomneyCare" bit was incoherent to begin with, but it's less coherent now.)

3.) Obama is now responsible for a major middle-class tax increase. After saying that he wouldn't raise taxes. Repeatedly. This will be in every Romney attack ad through this election season. It should be in them now.

From now on, it's not "ObamaCare." It's the "Obama Health Care Tax". Let's have the President own his massive tax hike right through to November.

From SCOTUSBlog: "The rejection of the Commerce Clause and Nec. and Proper Clause [arguments in favor of the ACA] should be understood as a major blow to Congress's authority to pass social welfare laws. Using the tax code -- especially in the current political environment -- to promote social welfare is going to be a very chancy proposition."

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.

Congress levies taxes, not the executive, retard.

?

Obama controls his biatches, and you know it. Still a loss for Obama. Can't work without the Medicaid expansion, and the states are pissed off and will not comply. Most Americans are against the mandate, so you just pissed off a bunch of people who are independents. He is a complete liar and flip flopper since he insisted this was NOT a tax. That will cost votes too. Suck it, libs!

Three things:

1) Can we finally put to rest the notion that the Supreme Court was rigged for Republican initiatives? It's tiresome, and in reality the butthurt that usually comes from SCOTUS decisions is because it's your particular ox that's being gored, not because they're ideologically fixed and conspiring to fark Democratic initiatives.

2) The Congress could have saved themselves a lot of trouble by simply calling it what it is, a tax. It was always a tax, and calling it something else was always a big charade. We need to get over this tax-averse attitude we have in this country if we wish to maintain any semblance of the standard of living we currently have. We can't continue to live off of other peoples' largesse for much longer.

3) Congratulations to Barack Obama on his reelection. This essentially sealed the deal, the rest is just pro forma screaming.
