The court’s four liberal justices, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, joined Roberts in the outcome.

BETRAYED BY ROBERTS!

To preserve our Founding principles we must resist and repeal legislatively.

So Obamacare is a tax.

I guess it is time to campaign on the slogan:

Vote Republican! Repeal the Healthcare Tax!

So . . . .

if the mandate is upheld as a tax,

and

if Congress can impose taxes,

does that mean that a simple vote repealing the tax would kill Obamacare?

So states can’t help enforce the laws of the land, but the government can force you to engage in commerce. We have no freedoms at all left.

Time to start over.

Eff every last one of you in the Senate and the Congress.

IF the Congress and the states in the lawsuit do move immediately to destroy this monstrosity I will quit being used as part of the proletariat class come January and will completely lose interest in politics.

My money and my voice have had zero effect on anything except raising the level of noise and only two year olds continue acting like babies.

I loathe and literally hate my government.

There is no reason to hang the flag of the Red, White and Blue.

It’s Gadsen from now on.

As I predicted.

So, we are now slaves to the whims of the federal government.

It's a shame, but all too predictable. We have become apathetic and comfortable, no longer willing to fight or sacrifice for our beliefs or country.

Most here will whine and wail over this outcome, but that's all that will come of it...words.

Next, most will vow to “vote them out”, which is laughable considering our electorate and “choices”, particularly this November.

Welcome to 21st century slavery.

If you consider Roberts’ argument, you could say that he slapped Obama in the face in this respect: Obama insisted the mandate was not a tax.

The court says he lied.

This proves people have lost control over their government. It’s all in the hands of power players. Do you really believe that these justices were not under immense pressure from behind the scenes — threats intimidation cajoling bribes etc — and the timid one, Roberts, caved. The power players have invested billions and billions into this brave new world enterprise. You think they would leave it in the hands of 9 people to decide THEIR FATE??? The only hope left is ballot box, and there too it is going to get harder and harder, except that next election we still have a chance — I believe, I hope.

Nope. Just the opposite. I’m done.

Its obvious that those in power now have the ability to keep themselves in power and enrich themselves personally by fiat. Its further obvious that the idiots that put them in power not only approve of it but actually work hard for it. Finally, its obvious that my views are more and more in the minority and I’m not going to expend the energy to fight fights I’m sure to lose.

I can take care of myself and my loved ones, and frankly, that’s ALL I am going to do. The rest of America can go straight to hell.

What it might do is increase the motivation and thus the numbers of anti-Obama voters.

And replace them with what? The Republican party is infested with liberals, including those who pretend to be conservative. Trust me — even if Romney wins and the Republicans control both Houses, nothing will change. You can bet the rent that Obamacare won't be repealed.

Face it. There is no place in either party for real conservatives.

You can count on me for a vote against Obama. You cannot count on me for a vote for Romney.

I’m voting against both of them and if the two major parties each run a liberal for president again in 2016, I’ll vote against both of them, too. This is not the time to cave in or compromise.

They ruled that the individual mandate requiring us all to buy insurance is unconstitutional...and that should be the end of it. BAck to Congress to change, fix it, or shelve the whole thing.

But, no. They then (it sounds like) unilaterally and unconstitutionally took it upon themselves to basically re-write the legislation and call that mandate a tax and then say “now it is ok, proceed.”

How can the US SUPREME COURT WRITE ANY LEGISLATION?

Answer: They can’t. It would be unconstitutional.

The Congress writes laws. So with what the legislation clearly called a mandate to buy ruled unconstititonal, it should go back to congress to alter it into a tax...WHICH WOULD NEVERY PASS THE CONGRESS RIGHT NOW.

I am shocked and severely disappointed in Roberts. They are (if this interpretation is correct) writing legislation from the bench which is not within their power to do.

I guess we’ll see what it all means, but that’s how I am reading it now and it is very disappointing if that is correct.
