There are 300+ million people on this country.

Between 45 - 49% make too little to pay income taxes let alone afford health insurance...Roughly half. I guess it is imaginable that millions on the low end would be for this. What other choice do they have but to vote themselves income? Seems to me like Obama and the Dem Senate has made themselves ONE BIG UNION with the poor.

Taking from the haves and giving to the wants

I like how the Obama haters completely ignore the fact that millions of Americans support the bill.

Conservatives always think everyone supports them for some reason (inability to think maybe?)


And I like how unAmerican people don't realize that mob rule is kind of forbidden in any nation where true liberty can ever reign. The mob rule was actually one of the most detested risks of having a free society. In a mob rule society it would be easy for any minority to be singled out (racial and non-racial minorities).

I mean, in Nazi Germany....didn't "millions" of Germans approve of the rounding up of the Jews? And it seems like millions of Russians were in approval of the upstart Communist Party during the revolution.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal refuses to implement Obamacare despite Supreme Court ruling



The Supreme Court upheld President Barack Obama's health care law on Thursday, but Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a possible Republican vice presidential contender who has refused to establish a federally mandated health care exchange in his state, said Friday that he will continue to ignore it.


Another interesting tidbit of information that may explain why the Democrats keep ignoring "tax" and sticking to penalty (aside from the typical tax increase at election time).

Same source -

Despite the court ruling, there is still a chance that Republicans in Congress can repeal much of the law next year even if they don't have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. Because Chief Justice John Roberts ruled that the mandate to purchase health insurance—one of the key provisions of the law—was a tax, Republicans can use a procedure called "budget reconciliation" to pass a repeal bill that requires only a simple majority to pass. But this scenario relies on the Republicans' ability to win the White House, keep the majority in the House and gain enough seats in the Senate.


I think its safe to say, by the number of Democrats bailing on Obama and the DNC convetion, that their seats are vulnerable. I am waiting for the ads to come out linking those democrats who voted for Obamacare to the 22 new taxes, the largest tax increase in US history, it created.

Didn't the Supreme Court say that states can opt out of Medicaid Expansion, but participating in all other aspects of Obamacare is mandatory? If they don't like the law of the land, they should move out of the country, or get the law changed.

I suppose if Republicans can get 51 Senate Seats in November, they can kill the Subsidies that will help people to afford the new expensive 2014 health coverage. That would be the same thing as cutting off the head of the serpent...the rest would soon die as well.

Yes and No... What the ruling did was restrict the Federal governments ability to withhold all funding from a state that does not comply with the medicare / medicaid portion. They ccan only withhold new funding if a state does not comply, which was the stick the government was going to rely on force states to comply.

Irnoic really since they claim this is a popular bill that the American people want and demand. If that is so then why the need to build in mechanisms to "force" compliance.

Non-compliance is a form of civil disobedience. I think we need to start a, "I will not comply" campaign. The reality is that this legislation has no teeth. There is no way to force compliance. No one is going to jail as a result.

The people of WI have spoken again and again. This is the very reason Walker was elected the FIRST time. Glad he has the stones to stand up for his people and for what is right and just!!. He sides with the majority of people in this nation!!

I think this recent SCOTUS decision is going to blow up in Obama's face before it is repealed!! It's all got to happen before 2014. That's when the staggering $$ figures begin to hit everyone far below the belt.


Gov. Scott Walker = Leadership

Other governors will also drag their feet on ObamaCare.

Bingo!

The first draft had Americans thrown in jail.

The version that past has no enforcement mechanism.
