Tomorrow is a grandious day. A judicial imbisile will be held in contempt of Congress and Obamacare will be no more. Thank you America for the freedom of Choice!

It is best to let others fight for your liberties, then enjoy the spoil of their efforts.

That's all I can do now. But I do not believe that the American federal government have my liberties in mind when they make laws like ACA and spend our money on army Mexican drug cartels.

Hmm, it's probably better if Obamacare get over turned. Why? Because it will force Obama to do single payer. So....imo doesn't matter what happens because it will be good or for the best.

Good thing I’m not a Supreme Court justice. I’d throw the damned thing out just on general principles, then put everyone in jail for 200 years who voted for it in the first place.



Think about it for a minute. Democrats passed a law that affects every American in a huge dramatic way, but did so as if we were a Banana Republic. They completely side-stepped the Democratic process and worked out the details behind closed doors. Republicans were totally shut out of the process and had zero say in the outcome. Then they used taxpayer dollars to bribe and cajole their own members to vote for the thing. Against their own rules of “sunlight”, they unveiled their monstrosity at the last minute so nobody even had time to glance over their handiwork. And if breaking all the rules wasn’t enough, they held the vote on Christmas Eve when everyone wanted to go home. So without even bothering to read the new bible of healthcare all the Democrats got in line and voted blindly for passage because they were told to do so.



When the colossal legislation passed by a single vote all the Democrats hailed it as a grand victory for the American people and the Democratic process.



Now you’d think the entire nation would rise up, tar and feather every last one of them and run them out of town on a rail. It doesn’t even matter what was in the legislation, if you’re going use every dirty trick in the book to pass a bill that dramatically changes the everyday lives of citizens then you are evil.



Good thing I’m not a Supreme Court justice. All those Democrats would be busting rocks for the rest of their lives.

It's gonna be a bad day for some today, it seems! The Court upheld the individual mandate, as a tax penalty and not under the commerce clause.

As far as the A.G. and the fast and the furious conspiracy theory by the republicans goes, perhaps you should read the article in Fortune Magazine that was out yesterday that completely debunks and disproves that claim, not to mention the article in the National Review that also disputes this nonsense and they explain the actual facts of this case and not the insane conspiracy plot that the republicans are creating to tarnish the president in an election year, and to cause a fervor among gun rights advocates over a fictional plot. I will link to both of these articles about this, and remember please that these are not left wing publications in the least.

And the National Review article actually says that Rep. Issa has dabbled in a conspiracy theory:

Without Obamacare, a friend of mine probably would have been dead. Thanks to Obamacare, I am insured. I see a new doctor tomorrow. I think it was an easy decision for the USSC.

It's a great day for all Americans, regardless of whether they're too dumb to realize it.

It looks like Chief Justice Roberts didn't want the legacy of the court and his own legacy to be tied up in the insanity of the right wing activist segment of the Court that would have based it's decisions on political ideological differences rather than actual interpretations of the Constitution. Whew!

If you recall the conversations we had last year, that was the view that I think both you and I took - that if you view the mandate as a tax or a tax credit there's no question that it's constitutional.

I admit that it has to be lonely at the top if you're a Supreme Court justice. Damn if you do, damn if you don't.

Yes it was. And I thought it was also within the powers of the Congress under the Commerce Clause, but the Chief Justice didn't agree with that one and neither did the rest of the right leaning justices, though the left leaners did.

Very true. It's one of the few sane decisions the conservatives on the court have made. It does have implications for other things which are mandates, but that's probably a good thing.

I love how Faux News and CNN did a "Dewey Beats Truman" routine:













In fairness, at least one NPR talk show also jumped the gun.

I agree, it has been a "grandious" day. Many wingnut heads have exploded today.



No wonder you couldn't wait for today.
