According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll:
" more than half of all registered voters - 53 percent - said they were more likely to vote for their member of Congress if he were running on a platform of repealing the law, up from 46 percent before the ruling."
Ruling ups support for Obama healthcare, still unpopular By Patricia Zengerle. Reuters, Jul 1, 2012
"Before you look to do harm to Chief Justice Roberts or his family, its important that you think carefully about the meaning the true nature of his ruling on Obama-care. The Left will shout that they won, that Obama-care was upheld and all the rest. Let them".

Justice Roberts -- savvy person or odd duck?
By Michael Goodwin. New York Post, June 29, 2012
"There is speculation that Roberts ruled this way in order to help conservatives strategically, to leave Obamacare hanging around Obama's neck for the upcoming election. By asserting that Obamacare is funded by taxes, it now becomes just another tax increase that the Democrats will have to defend. If it is a tax, it may be the biggest tax increase in history. "

Thank you, SCOTUS. This Obamacare ruling fires up the troops as Americas eyes are opened! Thank God

“Do we really need to send a thank you emails to Chief Justice Roberts?”
But even then we’d be stuck with them being able to tax anything we ***don’t do*** for any reason.
A little overweight? Tax.
Refuse to have your kids vaccinated in case of Autism? Tax.
Don’t like vegetables? Tax.
Drive an old car? Tax.
Don’t have energy-efficient appliances? Tax.
Own a gun? TAX TAX TAX.
The list is endless.
In the short term, yes, but eventually the Dems will be back in power. Can you imagine what they’ll do if they ever get the White House, House and Senate at the same time?
Only if I could find one that thanks you idiot. What kind of health care do you get?...bet its better than Obama’s unconstitutional mess....
Yes, I can ... still remember some of the events that happened 2 years ago.
If this gets us to a 60 Seat Majority in the Senate, then I will thank him, but not before.
“Yes, I can ... still remember some of the events that happened 2 years ago.”
“If this gets us to a 60 Seat Majority in the Senate, then I will thank him, but not before.”
Let me add to your thought:
If this gets us to large enough majority in the Senate to impeach him, then I will thank him, but not before.
"The Federal Government may enact a tax on an activity that it cannot authorize, forbid, or otherwise control."
... and next time it'll be even worse, because their appetite is constantly growing.
This a far bigger tragedy than just national healthcare debacle
Lifespans and numbers are now more loaded to their side than we thought before
Scalia and Kennedy are old.....
And there is never any doubt how the left wing ladies will vote
All for growing govt and ends justify means.....
This mistake will take decades to fix no matter November unless we win in the randomness of who dies first
The beltway ruins good men and women
Move SCOTUS to middle America..
Except we will need more than 60, the senate has rino’s galore in it....unless conservatives take over their seats than that would be great....
Unfortunately nobody knows how to do it, because the scotus judges are human beings too. Two of them - Anthony Kennedy & John Roberts - have broken by the constantly growing pressure from the left media...
Dear Justice (heehee, Good One!) Roberts,
Many years ago, when my womanizing, worthless douchebag grandfather, William O. Douglas, was on his deathbed, he expressed to me a very great fear that the idiotic gibberish that he had written about "penumbras" and "emanations" for the majority opinion in Griswold vs. Connecticut would almost certainly stand as the most inane drivel ever written by a Supreme Court Justice.
Though it was quite difficult to assure him with a straight face -- even on that very solemn occasion -- that someone would certainly come along someday and write something even stupider given the rapidly deteriorating quality of the Harvard Law School, I must confess that none of the assembled witnesses on that day held out much hope.
So, please let me offer you a most sincere and heartfelt thanks on behalf of our entire deeply grateful family: Your opinion in the ACA ruling is truly a new low in terms of bad logic, inconsistency, silliness and -- let's face it, because there's no sense in sugar-coating it -- outright crap.
Thanks to you, my grandfather won't go down in history as the biggest dumb-ass in the history of American Jurisprudence.
Thanks Again, William O. Douglas's grandson Bobby "Big Dee" Douglas.
Nice tagline u have :-)
