I love how everyone is saying that the SCOTUS has gotten it wrong, that they are corrupt, that they need to be kicked out...but if they would have struck it down...these people would have been praising them.


You got that right..


Been a good week for Obama despite the fact that many said it would be a bad week.


HUGE week for Obama.

But now we have to hear Republicans campaign soley on repealing this bill.

I just heard that Cantor said that they are going to begin the repeal process next week
Nothing like wasting more time and resources Republicans...they know that isn't going to pass.

Liberals always try to shove things down people's throat they don't want and can never take no for an answer.


Whereas conservatives decry government safety nets as "socialism" until they lose their jobs or retire; then they become first in line to collect unemployment or Social Security.

Picking up some interesting tidbits from CNBC. They're interviewing this Fortune 500 CEO, who says he is not going to hire more people, but he is going to throw alot into getting his employees healthy in the hopes of decreasing their unwellness. He said we have a trillion dollar mandate with not much a way to fund it, and it will (may) bankrupt Medicare.

And this "tax" is only imposed as a penalty...for most people, they won't pay this tax.


Love how you put 'tax' in quotes. Even you know it's bogus although you don't want to come out and say it.

So it is a 'tax' when we need this bill to be passed/constitutional but it isn't really so much and is kind of, you know, more of a 'penalty' in reality.

I guess the speaking out of both sides of one's mouth now begins.

Actually Obama lied to the American people about this.

And the saddest part is they'll fine anybody who can't afford it because you have to pay for the healthcare. That's what makes it the biggest scam in the planet.


People who can't afford should be going on State medicaid.

If a State decides not to expand it as planned...then they are just screwing over their people.

And with over 2/3 of the American people in opposition to the Bill.....

It should be an easy sell for the Republicans.

Just their usual dog and pony show.

What about the economy they keep complaining about?

you would think that would be a bigger priority..

Or call them entitlement programs and say anybody on welfare thinks they're entitled to it and bemoan the poor poor people who have no jobs because there is none in the area.

See? NEITHER PARTY gives a damned about us, they only give a damned about the money their corporate elitist masters give them.

But liberals are far worse than conservatives. Because they try to hide behind a cover of tolerance and morality while conservatives don't make any bones about what they're doing.

The states aren't 'deciding not to expand'. They simply can't afford it.
And where do you think the states get the money to 'expand' medicaid?
FROM NEW HIGHER TAXES.

Again ... nothing is free. Obama is forcing a raise in taxes across the board to everyone.

Do you think this doesnt impact the economy?

It does so, and in a hugely negative way.

The official language of the SCOTUS was that this is NOT a penalty. (they read the ruling on TV saying that) It's a tax. Obama said it wasn't a tax. The SCOTUS said it definately IS a tax. A tax if you don't buy their product. Which means it really is a penalty tax even if they deny it.


Yes, it is a penalty administered as a tax...which according to the SCOTUS is Constitutional.


You can't say that 'most people' won't pay this tax. You assume that the healthy younger crowd (under 40) will pony up and buy the gov't insurance rather than pay the lesser TAX that has now been imposed on them.


And that is their choice.

But the overwhelming majority of Americans want the healthcare system fixed. The Republicans cannot run on a negative; they will need to find an alternative solution. Meanwhile, Democratic candidates can also campaign on repealing the bill and providing a better alternative. Romney can kiss "Obamanomics" good-bye.

I was wondering this myself. Medicare was already headed towards insolvency, is this "tax" supposed to fix this problem, made much worse by how many more people that will be on Medicare?

Actually, didn't Bush appoint justice Roberts? You know, the one who outlined this ruling?
There is no partisan angle to this. Corporate America wins, which is what all in Washington are there to for.
