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?)
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.
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.

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I think this recent SCOTUS decision is going to blow up in Obama's face before it is repealed!!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.

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.
