Obama says the decision upholds the fundamental principle that in America - the wealthiest nation on earth - no one should fall into financial ruin because of an illness.

He also pointed out that the Republican nominee Mitt Romney supports the God awful individual mandate. Get ready to be reminded of this constantly. The GOP-e really messed up.

For him , his voters, and the Democrat Partyu, it was. For his voters, it was a Pyrric victory, for it will end up costing them their lives. It was a victory for obama and the DEmocrat Party becaues obamacare was designed to destroy the commerce system of the United Syayes over a period of time. The end goal of both obama and the Democrat Party.

///
yes. instead, those of us, hanging on by our fingernails,
should fall into financial ruin, or lose our jobs,
BEFORE we get an illness.
-
but once all of us, are unemployed,
and living on foodstamps and “free” medical care...
then, we can all relax and be happy!

The mass exodus of corporations to foreign lands will begin tomorrow.

You can’t do business in America anymore.

Well, sure. Slaves always have at least the security of being looked after by their masters.

I'm going to do just like I did when I lived in MA: Not paying. Come get me, prosecute and jail me if you live long enough to get that close to me.

It's time for the "Fourth Box". No more typing. No more voting. There is only one solution left.

If anything, it’s a pyrric (too costly, non-monetary) victory.

If I was obama I would put down the trumpet and be afraid, very afraid.

I pray THIS will sink that SOB into the dumpster of history.

Sounds more and more like a king, doesn’t he. I never dreamed we’d have a king named obama.

I get my healthcare from the VA. The VA hospitals will be over run with illegal immigrants and those who have to pay a fine to get government care.

I served in the Navy for four years doing a very, very small part to keep this country in existence. It appears my service was in vain as I only helped prolong it’s demise. And that saddens me.

Of course it was a victory for hussein. It officially made him king for God knows how long. He has only to utter the words “make it so” and it is done.

.... Mitt Romney needs to get way out in front of this thing and stress to the country that we simply cannot afford this "Affordable Healthcare Act."

He also needs to stress that .... He ... more than anybody else understands how this so called "Affordable Healthcare Act" (Based on RomneyCare) costs will spiral out of control into an abyss of monetary spending that will bankrupt this country. After all, he witnessed the effects and reality of this on his own state. And had he known then what he knows now .... he would not have instituted it in the first place!

Well .... at least that is what I would like Mr. Romney to do and say. He has the advantage of having actual working experience on the subject.

I just hope he doesn't squander his unique position in this matter.

I have said many a time that I would never, ever, give a red cent cent to Romney, and meant it heartfelt.

So today I hereby go back on my word, I will now give money to Romney, not because I trust him, but because he is the only *&$ ^&#@% alternative to the SOB Obama.

If Sarah Palin does not immediately step up and rally the Tea Party to become an unconquerable force, she is a damn fool.

Greta, a learned lawyer, says she can’t understand the law. I have a feeling that somewhere in there it says “If you don’t have a job, go to the VA and don’t worry about a fine”.

Agreed! It has now been identified as a TAX, which is the word the Democrats did not want used.

They will now have to defend their new TAX to the American People.

“The Divine One” is correct it is a great victory for his side. In fact, it may actually be one of the factors helping to reelect him.

nation bankrupt

True. That means that there is a tax increase coming....a huge one. If there is not, then Obama/Romney will have to radically realign the spending priorities of this nation. Also, they will take EVERY single health dime spent by the nation in other programs and have every medical procedure fall under ObamaCare.

I am certain they will roll military retiree and military family health care come under ObamaCare. And they'll take that money away from the military.

Every business and state/local gov't in America is better off not buying health insurance but letting their people fall into the government plan. It rids them of the paperwork headache, and all they have to do is pay a "tax" to the government in the amount they formerly paid for the employee's health care.

Within 5 years this will have morphed into a single-payer system and health insurance companies will be closing (Obama) or Cronied Corporatisted under government contract (Romney).
