... The Supreme Court Ruling could have gone in one of several directions:
1.If you like your Health Care plan, you can keep your Health Care plan. 2.If you like OUR Health Care plan, you can keep OUR Health Care plan. 3.Whether you like OUR Health Care plan or not, you cant keep your Health Care plan. 4.If you like your Health Care plan, tough s**t, amigo. They chose #2, 3 and 4.
Very little else to add to that other than to reiterate our brilliant residential constitution scholar no not Big Guy, Little Joe this is a big f*#@ing deal!
So congratulations Big Guy, you really are the Won!
And the Once.The only possible way to view this is that it will make it easier for Romney to win in November...
The sun sets on the American Experiment. Alexis de Tocqueville called it.

Freebies for everybody... and those that get the freebies don’t pay taxes anyway... does it get any better than this. The Welfare State is alive and well.... more foodstamps, anyone?
That was my first thought: this means Obama is sunk come November. Well, he would be, if there were such thing as a fair, clean, honest electoral process.
I am intensely sick of the “We are so screwed” attitude exhibited by many on FR.
We are only screwed—It is the end of America—Only if we the people allow it to happen.
Had George Washington assumed this mindset—Something that easily could have happened given the many set-backs dealt to the Continental Army—We’d still be British subjects.
Life, and liberty, require effort.
I, for one, plan to go-down swinging.
Some GOP person put out the message that this has awakened the sleeping giant and takes us back to 2010.
Tea Party Congress + GOP White House = getting rid of this theft of our country!
The Romans refused to accept that military defeat in the field, after military defeat in the field, after yet another military defeat in the field; meant the end of Rome. They continued to resist and fight for what they believed in.
Similarly - American liberty took a HUGE hit today - but the war is only over if we decide we have been beaten.
One silver lining is that the SCOTUS decided AT LAST that there was at least ONE big fat ugly ‘camel’ that couldn't be threaded through the ‘eye of the needle’ called “the interstate commerce clause”.
0bamacare may or may not survive as legislation - let us all hope that after November it's days are numbered - but the ruling that the interstate commerce clause is not a COMPLETELY blank check of power will no doubt be cited for as long as America and the concept of a government of limited and enumerated powers endures.
I ping you to my post#8.
The only hope for future Americans now is simply the bankruptcy of the Federal Govt. maybe we can start over on a different path.
You and me both. For the "We are so screwed" crowd: Whine and moan, scream, yell, cry, and get it all out of your systems--in private. Then come back to this forum READY TO FIGHT.
We are now more like Russia in 1917, with too many people cheering the Reds and dreaming of moving into the Bourgeoisie estates of those who haven't paid "their fare share."
Make that “fair share!”
Between the Bush tax cuts for the poor and this law, the Democrats have built a majority of the electorate that will get everything for free. Throw in expanded food stamps and we will be stuck with these kinds of politicians for at least another decade.
There will be no recovery in jobs as the apprehension regarding the cost of new employees becomes a fearful reality. 8% will be the good times.
The middle class will cease to exist as employers drop coverage in exchange for a small penalty. Every extra dollar between a $40,000 wage earner and a $100,000 wage earner will be spent on medical coverage based on the subsidy schedule. This will also doom our consumption based economy where those extra dollars are eaten by healthcare costs. Retirement savings will cease as people either try to afford healthcare or pay the "tax."
The American people won't wake up to this until after the election when all the major tax hikes kick in. I will be in the front of that tax hike line as a big user of FSAs which are getting limited to $2500 a year as part of the "Special Needs Parent Tax."
That's a nice sentiment and admirable. However, free people in this country have arrayed against them a veritable land armada of evil, leeches, users, losers, posers and now, apparently, a bunch of completely clueless dipshits in black robes.
Couple that with a President, the DOJ, the DHS,the FBI, ICE, ATF, HHS, and just about every other agency, bureau, or service under the Executive's control and you have an insurmountable task in trying to negate or lessen their impact legally. The only thing that will stop this is to remove Obama from office this November, or do it by force....that's our only choice in this matter now.
I think you were spot on the first time....
“”I’m going to get drunk!””
I don’t even drink but I’m considering it.
Just curious, how is Romneycare different from Obamacare?
