WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the nationwide tax subsidies under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, in a ruling that preserves health insurance for millions of Americans.
The justices said in a 6-3 ruling that the subsidies that 8.7 million people currently receive to make insurance affordable do not depend on where they live, under the 2010 health care law.

As we look around our nation now all we see is a country in serious decline - being pushed by people who hate what this country was and KNOW that they can fabricate a better country. We are now entering a darkening period when we will see shocking decline in all Constitutional values and traditions...
Can there be any doubt that SCOTUS will soon make same-sex marriage the law of the land and can there be any doubt that that tectonic change will result in persecution of the Christian church? PLEASE NOTE: none of this will affect Muslims, because this is not about religion - it is about destroying the Christian church.
These antichrists should look to see what happened when the Roman emperors tried to destroy the Christian church: it grew! BUT, since we no longer teach history, no one can learn from such experience.
John Roberts can now be termed Chief Traitor!
What would be the difference? That’s pretty much what they do now anyway.
The Constitution only has power if those in power abide by its restrictions. Once they become unmoored from those restrictions everything becomes “Constitutional” if the words can be twisted to reflect any clause or phrase used in the document.
In short, The Constitution is only words on a page. It cannot defend itself. If those with power choose to abuse it then others with power have to defend it else it is lost.
I hate to add salt to the wounds...but several months ago we had a wager on this topic I believe for $20 to pay in to FreeRepublic.
Sadly, I predicted this and wish really wish I lost. Got to round up the wagers who predicted otherwise though.
The Constitution RESERVES those rights and powers to the States and the People. They belong to the States and to the People inherently, especially the latter. The Federal Constitution grants certain limited power to the Federal Government, but We the People grant those powers. Our servants have taken over the estate (time to fire the lot of them).
I'm not talking Iran or places like that (you wouldn't want your money in places like this anyway). Rather, places like Singapore, or even Canada. There are no penalties or restrictions to keeping money offshore, only now, you need to advise the IRS about it. Fewer banks overseas want American customers now - because of the difficult Treasury/IRS regulations many have simply dropped US Passport holders. Nonetheless, some still do.
A sigh of relief. Now they can focus on making tiny nonsubstantive changes in Obamacare (which will be vetoed anyway).
Why would Bush have done that? He picked Roberts for such desired traits. Some Non Party Bot Freepers in early 2000 tried to warn what GW Bush really was and got Flamed and Banned for doing so. Much of the the Crap that Obama is pushing such as FTTA was Bush demanding as well. Bush Doctorine expanded Executive Powers and programs which Obama now uses against us. What is the real difference between Obama and GW Bush? One election cycle that's all.
Does our government have to follow its own law?
Answer = no it doesn’t.
Have a nice day. :)
If the government doesn’t have to follow its own law, why do any of us?
And with this ruling, our country’s laws can be changed at will...no need to worry about the Constitution, either. Do what you will...as long as the SCOTUS is owned by your side.
What about September MrB?
The Law means nothing.
We’re an oligarchy.
The law has been rendered meaningless by the machinations of those who tell us black is white, up is down, and darkness is light.
Almighty God is the final authority, indeed, the ONLY authority.
When the Government is in conflict with His instructions, I will comply with the ONLY Ruler I acknowledge.
Is anyone surprised..of course homo marriage will be made the law of the land, our country is officially down the tubes..actually Knew that six years ago but this pretty much confirms it
I did not participate in any actual betting, but I was one of those willing to bet the farm that this would go the other way. And I am a lawyer. We can never again assume that a law means what it actually says. Amazing.
Hope you don't want a job or any opportunity in America or have any stake in America at all because your Obama is going to give jobs etc. to foreigners:
This Obamatrade deal is not just about trade but about Obama changing U.S. immigration laws . It allows Obama to import hundreds of millions of 3rd world immigrants into the USA from among the 6 billion people in the 3rd world. Many on this forum campaigned for this Obamatrade immigration agenda disguised as free trade.
This Obama trade deal is a trojan horse.Its disguised as free trade What It really allows is for Obama to flood the USA with an unlimited number of 3rd world immigrants ...
This Fast track gives Obama power to make agreements that override U.S. IMMIGRATION laws and any law. Its the destruction of the republic.It gives obama unlimited dictatorial power to destroy the U.S. Proof here :
Because of todays vote Obamatrade now will pass . Todays vote passing TPA made Obamatrade a certainty because TPA banned adding amendments to TPP . The Senate could have used amendments to stop TPP . Now TPP wont be stopped. so those who campaigned here for its passage are also responsible for the destruction of America. FYI there are 6 billion people in the 3rd world. Obama is about to bring most of them to the USA .They are coming here now so the USA is done.
