“If you want to replace Obamacare, you must replace Obama.”
What worries me is what will Obamacare be replaced with? I’ll wager on larger Federal Govt.

I’ve been going Galt for a while now. Reducing the spending side is pretty easy. Reducing the income side *voluntarily* is harder. I was greatly inspired today by the SCOTUS to redouble my efforts to do just that.

Starve the beast.

Please do not let yourselves be deceived. Romney=Romneycare. I’ll believe when he and other so called Republicans actually take action which they have no balls to do thus far. Romney repealing this would be admitting he made a mistake in Mass. which he is not going to do. He is at least partially responsible for this mess as far as I am concerned being the Health care bill was based on his dreamy act.

Yeah, but Romney is one of the goobers who helped to get this whole ball rolling in the first place. Remember, MassCare as a model for ObamaCare, and all that?

Nevertheless, it looks like we’ve no choice now. Hopefully Romney will make good on his promise to sign a bill repealing it, and then hopefully a Republican Congress will never get around to replacing it.

I dont give a damn at this point.

YOU give me what your plan is then we can do that. Anything short of getting Obama OUT of the WH is a VOTE FOR HIM.

RomneyCare was a STATE program, and if he was running for Governor of my state, it might matter. But saying that this should remain a STATE issue, and therefore that the FEDERAL ACA is a bad idea, is perfectly consistent. And if he acts on that, than the national program of ObamaCare will die.

I’ll believe when he and other so called Republicans actually take action which they have no balls to do thus far.

Well, there is zero chance of them showing that unless they win election. And here's the thing. It is 100% certain that Obama will make no effort to repeal Obamacare. If anything, he'll likely expand it will more subsidies, etc.. The only possibility to repeal Obamacare lies with electing Romney, because by 2016, we'll be too far into it to repeal.

So it's either roll the dice with Romney, or be certain you're going to lose with Obama. The

Roberts guidance was obviously Dred Scott ~ and he'll be as famous as Taney for the rest of this century and beyond.

I'd imagine he thinks he saved the USSC.

Probably didn't. Fascism never pays off in the end ~ look at Mussolini ~ see where it got him.

There is simply no replacing the decision. The decision gives the government the right to mandate commerce and tax it if you don’t. “Eat this food or else be taxed.” “Excercise under a government mandated program or else be taxed.”

Repeal it quickly, then you can spend lots and lots and lots and lots of time trying to replace it.

It is up to congress to stop appropriating more funds to feed the federal monster across the board. No money, and big chunks of the cancer come to a halt.

Just say no to funding broad parts of the leviathan.

This is where it becomes important to elect members of Congress who will commit to repeal Obamacare and commit NOT to replace it with another big government solution.

For me it means that once the pre-existing condition part goes into effect I will stop my health insurance.

I’ll happily pay the paultry penalty to save hundreds every month. I’ll just get insurance on my way to the hospital if anything bad happens.

This was the rule in Washington state for a while back in the late 90’s. I worked at Blue Cross at the time. It was a joke. Couples would get pregnant, buy our health insurance to cover them through the pregnancy, and then cancel it after the baby was born.

It was not workable in the long run and cost us a fortune. Fortunately it was only temporary.

Oh, and a LOT of health insurance companies left the state.

Strangely enough, TCM (Turner Classic Movies) ran a movie named” Advise and Consent” Plenty of big name, and character actors as well. Anyway the story goes like this...

Senate investigation into the President's newly nominated Secretary of State, gives light to a secret from the past, which may not only ruin the candidate, but the President's character as well.

Starve the beast.

Don't all of you get it yet? It is you and I the working class the everyday people who will suffer.

This is not about insurance never has been.

They have just announced to the working class ,those that get paychecks or have small businesses that they are now economic slaves of the government and their rich elite sponsors.

That is exactly what they have just done.

The government now has the right to tell you how you are to spend your money and if you do not spend it on what they want you to, when they want you to, regardless of your situation then they will not tax, not mandate, but fine you for breaking the law and do so without you having your day in court or a jury trial.

This was another test case to push the envelope of the dictatorial power the socialists have been pushing for years.

The rich and powerful people and businesses [or most of them]love Socialists and one man governments.

They are much cheaper and easier to bribe and control and they think their wealth will always protect them and usually the ultra rich they do.

If they get away with this ,and it looks like they will, wait till you see who they they bleed with this so called flat tax. Hint it will be the same e working stiff since time began.

They (both parties) are cut from the same mold and have shown us time and time again that they have no intention of reducing the size or intake of these kingdoms they have, or controlling their insatiable greedy spending and the country in financial trouble needs money.

The politicians we vote on in either of our two major dynasties no longer make decisions independent of the parties and that includes these judges .

The Party controls the candidates and both parties are controlled by the same rich and powerful, people bankers, corporations.

Those of you who believe Romney or any will do any thing about or be anything better than Obama any

Its been about what it always ends up being about when a nation is falling from inside because it is filled with corruption and greed in all its branches.

The rich and powerful doing the reaping, laughing and the rest of the dumb class doing the work and being too busy fighting each other for the crumbs off of their tables to realize once again despite six thousand years of historic warnings, a nation of people once again who have been going about saying it can't happen to us ,fall asleep and wake up and find themselves just about cooked, in a boiling pot on which the heat has been turned up very slowly.

Turn your back on God and His Word, you loose His blessings His benchmarks for choosing leaders and His guiding hand.

In His place you get Satan and those leaders whose character he molds.

And just like the court decision on the Arizona law, Mittens GETS IT WRONG AGAIN!

He should haved stopped at REPEAL!

It’s over. The GOP doesn’t have the spine to repeal anything because of 1) the pre-existing BS idea and 2) “kids” up to 26 staying of their parents plan BY LAW! Who says you can’t buy others insurance? So I don’t get that.

Romney/Boehner/McConnell are all talk and won’t do SQUAT!

The Republic is dead. The only thing left to do is move or collapse the system. Everyone quit their jobs and go on welfare. Get food stamps. Get on Medicaid. Get housing allowances and free utilities.

Atlas needs to shrug.

Why don’t you just send it directly to the Mormon “Prophet” in Salt Lake City and skip the middle man?

Romney is NOT the solution to Obama.

Seriously, you would be better served giving that money to REAL conservatives running for election or reelection to the House of Senate. That is the only viable way to stop Obama. Romney is not any better than Obama, except that he doesn’t have big ears.
