The 51% who will vote for Obama don’t pay taxes. WE are those “others” who will pay the tax and we are a minority.
So, come on down to El Monte Slim's!
I posted a similar comment on Facebook, as a comment to the article/post.
And you tell ‘em that you heard it here first... on Roller Derby
Does obama have photo of Roberts screwing a goat on the steps of the Supreme Court? Or, is he simply a liberal? Or both.
You need to get the intellectual machine in gear before mashing the gas if you know what I mean. Otherwise, someone is liable to get hurt.
Let the media spin it, as they did in 2010.
I still say that this is the proverbial nail in the Dems coffin.
I have faith...
Sorry, I’m very upset and a little jumpy right now.. Not a good title regardless the content.
Dadgummit Laz. Let’s wait a while and see the end effect of what Roberts has done by swapping votes with Kennedy, writing the MAJORITY opinion, and making this a tax issue.
I think I may see where she is going with this. If I’m correct, there definitely is a silver lining here and she has a hold of it.
(Why are so many conservative FReepers eager to write her off regardless of her continued success? /rhetorical)
Shes Phil Sheridan riding to rally the troops. I wish Romney had as much fire. Maybe he wants bad enough to be President. He certainly has more fire than McCain.
Not only can I see November from my house, now I can TASTE it!!
Going to be a very. Long. HOT. Summer.
Did you really miss her point that badly????? You think Palin, who coined the term "death panels" is a fan of O-Care??
It is possible, but I am leaning at the moment towards and emotional brain fart.
Ditto for "GeorgeWahsingtonsGhost" since 4-29-12
Nothing less will restore our Republic.
Sarah has it figured out. The Supremes ruled that it is simply a tax. Ergo, Congress merely has to eliminate the tax, which is well within its power using a simple majority. Did Robert’s know this? Did he intentionally do this to fire up the Tea Party? If so, then it’s time to march. July 4th, being right around the corner, would be the perfect opportunity to assemble.
There is a reason Palin is currently unemployed and attended so many schools just to get a BA. She does not seem to have a clue on the political realities as opposed to rhetoric (no question she excels in the latter). Nice spin, but reality is quite different.
Obamacare will never be repealed because you cannot get 60 votes in the Senate. The only way to reverse obamacare is to defund the DHS, IRS and other agencies specifically assigned with implementation. I am very pessimistic as I have yet to see the GOP Congress or President have the cojones to defund any agency in this manner, with the rare and narrow exception of NIH gun control studies (and there was strong bi-partisan support for that).
Obamacare is now unfortunately here to stay - the question is not whether to end it but how to mend it so as to do the least damage and reduce the absurd cost. More likely the trajectory will take us into socialized medicine. A sad day in America and for those who love freedom everywhere.
In a nutshell. Laz,you summed it up completely.
Yeah, but are you “lamp po$t pi$$ed” yet?
Claire, I really think “it’s time”.
For now, yes. Palin's point is get out, vote in reps and Senators to overturn it legislatively and fix the issue there.
We're all highly PO'd over this morning's development. The question now is... what do we do about it?
We prayed this would not happen. God's answer was "no".
The rest is up to us.
Is daycare out already? Read it again, dude. Slowly and carefully. Read around FR and check out some of the (non-hyperventilating) analysis.
For example, from another FR thread:
“Roberts didn’t call it a tax. The govt lawyers, in arguing the case before SCOTUS presented three arguments for ObamaCare:
the commerce clause - SCOTUS ruled NO
necessary and proper clause - SCOTUS ruled NO
it’s a tax - SCOTUS ruled YES
Roberts just said, hmmm, so you want to call it a tax. Okay, it’s a tax. Now what? If they call it a tax, it’s doomed politically, financially and maybe also constitutionally. Since I can’t argue that it’s not a tax, and Congress does have the power to set taxes, let’s give them what they want.
It’s the same as when an Aikido or Judo master uses the energy of an opponent to throw them across the room. Roberts just threw ObamaCare under the bus and he used their own arguments to do it. He is right and he did what is best for the country.
ObamaCare is insane and the curtains have now been removed so everybody can see what it really is. It will not survive this and neither will Obama or any Democrat who voted for it when it was NOT a tax.”
FUJCB, you can’t read.
If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin. Samuel Adams, 1776
This has history to back it up.
Since Mar 10, 2012
Hey dumba$$, go to DU and see if you can find someone that can READ the article to you.
Stupid Trolls need a barf alert..
Well, we could work diligently to vote in reps and Senators who will overturn the tax legislatively and fix the issue there.
That’s “cain’t”, you Jersey devil you.
That asshole will hide the first day in office and claim, I tried,
we must move forward.
Romney said he will REPLACE obamacare, much like Obama told us all exactly how
he was going to screw America Yet nobody is listening to the words they say.
HEY FREEPERS WAKE THE HELL UP! DAMN!
I fully understand being upset. I’m having trouble myself not banging my head against the wall until it bleeds.
Trust me; the wall won’t bleed.
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.
Yes, let’s all give them fuch a Reception as fuch vile Ingrates deferve.
Past time to sack DC.
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 see dumb people...
... they’re everywhere...
... they walk around like everyone else...
... they don’t even know that they’re dumb...
Some of them...like you, JCBreckenridge
...THEY POST HERE”
Read the whole thing, Einstein.
I think the very naughty Godzilla is also giving us the finger. :o)
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
Yes it is.
Chinese proverb - May you get what you wish for.
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.
LOL! Love it. And so appropriate.
I am with #11 Dead Corpse. I did my peaceful redress of grievances on 9/12/2009.
All branches of "our" government, FAIL.
Hey guys...the cleaners called...your brains are ready to be picked up any time!
Well you were the first to reply but you also turned out to be the most WRONG.
