“...by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.
Someone help me out here...aren’t we a republic?
The constitutionality of a law depends upon how "strong" the majority was that passed it.
As opposed to how strongly the American electorate was AGAINST it.
We were until 1860.
I wish the Supremes would sink Obamacare, but I have my doubts. Still, a good bi*ch slapping of Obama by the Supremes (legally of course) would be sweet.
At this point, there is no one willing to stand up against this dictator wannabe. Congress is useless. I hope the SC will do what is right.
The Republic died with the fraudulent passage of the 17th amendment.
Murtha ramrodded it down our throat with an audible vote, and he committed TREASON at that!

Strike it down en tot and force those CongressCritters to bring it to the floor again, sans individual mandate, if they dare.
cUZ THERY’RE NOT GOING TO READ 2700 PAGES.
—But he figures he can safely assume a majority of you know nothing about it, and his party controlled media will not tell you anything concerning it at this inopportune moment. Hence, another classic example of what I have called Calculated Deception.—
Yeah, Dan Rather found out the hard way that the internet has changed that formula. :-)
It's vital that they do. Dictator-in-waiting (only he's not waiting) Obama seems willing and eager to sweep aside the majority of the American people, the congress, and the high courts.
219-212 is a “strong majority”.
The Line Item Veto passed the House with Unanimous Consent.
