Despite the court ruling, there is still a chance that Republicans in Congress can repeal much of the law next year even if they don't have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. Because Chief Justice John Roberts ruled that the mandate to purchase health insuranceone of the key provisions of the lawwas a tax, Republicans can use a procedure called "budget reconciliation" to pass a repeal bill that requires only a simple majority to pass. But this scenario relies on the Republicans' ability to win the White House, keep the majority in the House and gain enough seats in the Senate.
This is a tax.
We have to repeal this tax.
You repeal taxes at the ballot box.
Tell all your friends: The Democrat Party is the party of taxes and the Supreme Court just affirmed that fact.

We don't need a filibuster proof Senate. Recall that Harry Reid only need 51 votes to pass Obamacare. He said it was not a tax bill therefore a simple majority was all that was needed. I think it can be repealed with 51 votes in the Senate.

This is a tax.
AN UNCONSITUTIONAL TAX on inactivity.
The US Constitution only allows for THREE types of taxation - 1) Direct (never used), 2) Excise, and 3)Income tax (16th Amendment).
Chief Justice Roberts just created a new type of tax out of whole cloth and he never bothered to explain where he found this definition.
