FU GEORGE W BUSH!
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.
The Tea Party will go crazy over this.
Libs thought they were gone, just wait.
Obama will lose in a landslide now.
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,
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.
Glad I’m on the north side of 50. The country is done, put a fork in it. In 40 years the transition will be complete to a third world country. It had a good run...
I cannot even put into words how disgusted I am. Just sickening. Thanks a lot Roberts, you really screwed us all.
Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare The Supreme Court has upheld the individual insurance requirement at the heart of President Barack Obama's...[Full Story]
obama is a goner.
Anybody who does not vote against Obama is now officially an enemy of the United States.
How about “Vote Republican” except Romney?
How about just “Vote conservative”?
Elections have consequences....especially when the commie rats win and control all 3 branches of government.
Folks, we’re screwed...but you knew that already.
I just donated to the Romney campaign, the tea party, and the NRA. I’ll never sit on the sidelines again. Are any of you now motivated to do the same?
Libs thought they were gone, just wait.
Obama will lose in a landslide now.
I agree 100%.
It's now or never, for the next four months.
Get the 'Rats out!
The fix was in from the start!
This is what a RINO dominated RNC has gotten us. Bad judges, bad government. I expect to see a rise of the Tea folks with even the so-called Reagan democrats calling this slide to socialism for what it is...
Nothing pains me more than to say this but,
Get ready for another 4 years of 0. This decision will be touted from the highest mountains of arrogance and liberalism as proof that the one knows what he is doing and is taking care of us.
Absolutely disgusting. I am so ashamed to be an American today.
God Help Us All
It appears SCOTUS upheld individual mandate in Obamacare as a tax; ergo, Obama just lost his re-election. d
Make no mistake about it, this is a big government move. Republicans are in it too.
Sarah Palin was correct: It’s the government against the people, not the republicans against the democrats.
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.
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.
Look long-term, I would rather our side be fired up then the other side for the up coming elections. I thing the SC just cost the libs the White House, the Senate and Congress. We are now motivated!
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.
How about just Vote conservative?
How about we get rid of Obama and then get rid of Obamacare.
It looks like the “Great American Experiment” is over with.
to all those that stayed home because McCain was too liberal, eff you.. To those bitching, just remember that when you don’t vote for the most conservative candidate that can win, the results might be what you think.
Elections have consequences people.
This won’t change anyone’s vote. Who that had planned on voting for Obama yesterday, will now vote against Obama on the basis of what the Roberts’ Court did today?
It won't matter. The fact that a mandate has been ruled Constitutional means that America is no longer worth fighting for.
Nine people voted today.
In November scores of millions of people will vote.
Patriots will not give up.
What it might do is increase the motivation and thus the numbers of anti-Obama voters.
Just took my flag down with tears in my eyes. My country is gone.
The only way to get rid of obamacare now ...
REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMA.
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.
I wonder if the democrats will be spiking the football?
If George Washington was here he'd slap your face for saying that!
How does it feel to murder your fellow Americans SC? You are disgusting fascists pigs. You just signed into law the death panels. May God have mercy on your souls because you are going to the hottest parts of hell for eternity.
I hope something is planned for mid Sept. I’m on vacation, and would love to be part of the largest TEA movement to decend on DC. Bring the fire to the beasts den.
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.
AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY
We just arrived there this morning at 10am EST.
The reason why you say this is because you are a gutless little wretch.
Real patriots fight for their freedom.
It's all over when the Supreme Court makes decisions based on politics and ideology instead of on the Constitution.
The fact that a mandate has been ruled Constitutional means that America is no longer worth fighting for.This country will always be worth fighting for. I will always fight for the ideal it has always represented and the unprecedented role in human history it has played. We need to somehow fix this country as it's foundations have been compromised.
So if it was 5-4 to throw out obamacare then it’s a political court. 5-4 to keep it the libs will say it’s a solid ruling by a just court.
