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.
Is the SCOTUS secretly guaranteed to have personal choice of health care and doctors and not for us serfs?
America is not worth fighting for, any more.
Newt was right about these judges
How exactly do you think that electing Romney is going to change Obamacare? You do know that a form of Obamacare was originally authored by Romney, don't you?
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!
Color me shocked and pleasantly surprised.
Can’t wait to see Romney argue against ACA now, since it was based on the Mass law. His only fig leaf was the constitutionality. Now that that’s been striped away, he’ll look like John Kerry; he was for it before he was against it!
How did Nancy Pelosi know the ruling? She needs to be investigated. Kagan should never have voted.
Public demonstrations are one thing but the real action from this point on is identifying who will vote for the GOP and getting those votes cast. This is a turnout election and we need to get every single freedom-loving American to cast a ballot. GET OUT THE VOTE! That is the name of the game for the next four months!
Congress can now apparently pass taxes while never having to admit they are taxes but the courts will uphold them anyway. A real Pandora’s Box was opened here.
