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.

Can anyone out there tell me what, now, is the purpose of the legislative branch of government. The executive will just refuse to execute the laws passed. The judiciary will rewrite the meaning of the legislative language, despite it being discussed vociferously and extant with the time of the debate. The Chief Justice will simply rewrite the law....there he fixed it.

Does obama have photo of Roberts screwing a goat on the steps of the Supreme Court? Or, is he simply a liberal? Or both.

PLEASE then tell me how you would handle it?

Let the media spin it, as they did in 2010.

I still say that this is the proverbial nail in the Dems coffin.

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)

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Obamacare will never be repealed because you cannot get 60 votes in the Senate.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.

Nonsense. It’s a DEFEAT.

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?

I see where she went with it. It's wishful thinking at best. Sorry, but I have no faith that this message can cut through media bias, agitprop from entrenched Socialist legislators, or the laziness of the entitlement masses.

We prayed this would not happen. God's answer was "no".

The rest is up to us.

lol

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.”

Even if the legislation itself is over turned, wishful thinking, the affect of the ruling sets the precedent and is still there. Other legislation would then be penned and passed that would be even worse.

This has history to back it up.

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.

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.
