If it is a tax, how are they going to implement it?

Income, property sales tax? Or will they send every person

in the United States a “tax bill” just for being alive?

I’m going to have to dig out my “Blow me” ink stamp when I

recieve my Obamacare bill.

I’ll add that to me right now Roberts seems to have been swayed by a preoccupation with his own legacy, rather than doing the right thing for our country.

His legacy is doomed as millions will one day spit on his name and the shackles of socialist hell that have been cast upon the American public.

Lol.

I couldn’t have been more against the attempted appointment of Miers, but we were just talking about that! “At least Miers wouldn’t have done this!!”

I’ve always liked Roberts, seemed like a true conservative, etc, and I was delighted when Miers was withdrawn and he was chosen. Now I’m just shaking my head going “did Bush do this to us??”

OK so my lawyer husband says that maybe Roberts saw this as an opportunity to limit the commerce clause, which he says could have far reaching implications that conservatives have been fighting for...

He could have ruled the mandate unconstitutional and still limited the commerce clause. Make no mistake about it...he’s another Souter at worst—Kennedy at best.

There are only 3 Conservative Constitutional judges on the court. We have 4 ultra liberal and 2 liberal/moderate traitors.

It’s crazy but I understood that states can opt out, like New Jersey, and Sebelius can not then pull all Medicaid from NJ as a punishment if they do. There are some odd nuggets that free up states, but the understanding of all the specifics won’t be digested today.

When you couple this with Roberts’ vote in the immigration case, I’d have to say that the guy is plainly not very conservative. I wish Bush had appointed another man, a guy with Scalia’s mettle...

The Rats are all on the record saying it was NOT a tax. Zero gave televised interviews scoffing at the thought it could be a tax. I hope this is used against them.

I suggested to my [pro-Obama] secretary that she start looking for another job, as my business won’t survive Obamacare without some radical cutting back.

Romney was just on saying he’d repeal it on day 1. I have no idea how he will actually accomplish that but that’s what he said.

If it is now officially a tax, can’t the President and congress just eliminate it effectively ending the law? No funding, no Obamacare?

According to FoxNews Radio, the House has schedule a repeal vote for July 11.

The repeal passed in 2011, it'll pass in 2012 and die in Harry Reid's Senate.

I've noticed the Media is misrepresenting the ruling (Fox saying the mandate was upheld, for example) and some people around me are already delirious with excitement for Obama's great victory with no comprehension of the law, the implications or the aftermath since it passed.

Romney's response was not JIP'd on talk radio where I am.

“...maybe this will give Romney some additional momentum.”

Oh, it did! From www.scotusblog.com:
- - - - - - - - - -
Via the Atlantic Wire, “Mitt Romney’s spokeswoman said the candidate raised $300,000 off the ruling in the first hour after it was handed down.”

Romney: “What the Court did today was say that Obama care did not violate the Constitution. They did not say that it is good law or good policy”

Romney: “This is now a time for the American People to make a choice. You can choose whether to have a larger and larger government making intrusions into your life... Or whether instead you want to return to a time where Americans have their own choice in health care.”

Romney: “If we want to get rid of Obama care, we are going to have to replace President Obama”
- - - - - - - - - -
Romney is smart, he is going to capitalize on this and use it as a hammer to put the big smackdown on Obama come election day. The same goes for the SCOTUS ruling on Arizona’s SB 1070. If most of that is unconstitutional and Obama has invalidated the rest by ordering ICE not to cooperate with Arizona law enforcement, then the answer is to run Obama out of office and restore cooperation again. We can override both SCOTUS decisions by voting for Obama’s opponent. I see this as a big win for Republicans because it will turn the voters in the right direction.

Did anyone actually see Roberts give the Oath of Office to Obam...All I ever saw was a still picture. I said from beginning Roberts was a traitor

Good for you. Yours is the attitude we need to have. Our tippy-toeing around is not cutting it anymore.

Thank you for your response.

I just don’t know what else to say.

When my wonderful man, Arpaio, and his Cold Case Posse come forth, this should send everything into a huge spin. How can any of these things with BO/BS’s signature be legal?

He is an illegal president; therefore, everything he signed and continues to sign is illegal and worthless.

I can’t wait for the Cold Case Posse to come forth.
