Sarah Palin Thank you, SCOTUS.

Thank you, SCOTUS. This Obamacare ruling fires up the troops as America’s eyes are opened! Thank God.

This proves to be such an unsettling time in America as we undergo the fundamental transformation that Barack Obama promised he would do to us if elected. Obamacare was dealt in deception and confusion by flooding the public with an overwhelming amount of conflicting “rationale” via thousands of pages of unread legislative detail, which is the radical left’s M.O. Obama promised the American people this wasn’t a tax and that he’d never raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000. We now see that this is the largest tax increase in history. It will slam every business owner and every one of the 50% of Americans who currently pay their taxes. The other 50% are being deceived if they think they’re going to get a free ride – because Medicaid is broke. Recipients of Obama’s “free health care” will have fewer choices and less accessibility. Trust me – this much more expensive health care WILL be rationed; to claim otherwise defies all economic and common sense.

We will not retreat on this. A newly elected legislative branch is key to defending our Republic and fundamentally restoring all that is good in America.

SCOTUS now rules this is a tax? Well, Congress has the ability to create taxes – and also has the ability to rescind them. Upon their return from the July recess, Congress should act immediately to repeal this terrible new tax on the American people, and indeed they must repeal all of Obamacare. This is the most brazen and sweeping new tax and government overreach imposed on us. We the People did not ask for this tax, we do not want this tax, and we can’t afford this tax. This is not an answer to America’s health care challenges.

It’s time, again, for patriotic Americans to rise up to protest this obvious infringement on our economic and personal freedom. November is just around the corner. Today, the Supreme Court issued their ruling on Obamacare. In November, We the People will issue ours.

Gov. Palin has it right.

Repeal the mandate, or make the fine $1.00 per year, next January through reconciliation. Get that done first. Then peel off a half dozen Senate Democrats to repeal, with sixty votes, the rest of the Act, which by that point doesn't work for anyone.

the SCOTUS has just ruled that it is permissible to force a US citizen to buy a product or service, or face a fine.

Democrats don't need this ability. If some day they have a super-majority, they could just give the people the product or service and tax to pay for it.

This fine-in-lieu of participation was a gambit tailored specifically to give political cover for a government takeover of healthcare. The inability of the vast majority of the population to self-insure for foreseeable risks made this possible. I can't see it as having broader application: car insurance, perhaps.

Call it ObamaCare. Call it a mandate. Call it a right.

It's still a tax.

That's the simplicity of the ruling. You can't ask the courts to undo acts of congress that you don't like.

Time to get off our butts and get real.

Get rid of Democrats. Get rid of Obama.

I am sincerely hoping that your analysis is correct and things turns out the way you say. It’s a good glass-half-full approach.

I’m NOT done. I will never be done

But there is little or nothing positive from this ruling. It only means our side has an even greater burden

This was a horrible decision, but now it is our job to throw these F'ing assholes out of office.....maybe Roberts has no balls, but we Americans better show we HAVE SOME. May I quote someone else whose remarks reflect what REALLY happened today:

They were poised and ready for something like this today. Quite a few other naysayers pounced first on FR this morning. The brunt of their message: vote Willard.

Maybe now is the time for her to declare her candidacy and run as an independent. She would get the conservative vote, leaving Obama and Romney to split the liberal vote.

Sorry, I don't buy it.

I am with #11 Dead Corpse. I did my peaceful redress of grievances on 9/12/2009.

All branches of "our" government, FAIL.

One of the most annoying types of Free Republic posters are those who, in their apparent zeal to be the first to reply to a new post, base their comment on a headline as opposed to reading the entire text of the post.

Well you were the first to reply but you also turned out to be the most WRONG.
