The Supreme Court may have invalided the entire healthcare law by their ruling.
Under article 1 Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution:
“All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as other
But that’s not what happened. The House barely passed one version of the healthcare law. The Senate passed a different version of their own. The
House version hit a roadblock in the Senate. So Democrats, because it was NOT a tax bill, pulled the Senate version for reconciliation, and
deemed it passed, rather than risking another vote in the House. This means the bill originated in the Senate, not the House, which is in
direct violation of Article 1 Section 7.

Peter Schiff also gives a litany of reasons why this bill does not pass Constitutional muster with much more detail in this video:

These guys both make very good points. SCOTUS pulled a bit of a switcheroo with the way they deemed this Constitutional, so I'm hoping some great
legal mind will persue repealing this whole thing based on those facts. Romney claims he'll take care of it if he gets in, and I'm very tempted to
give him that opportunity. It might be the only reason to vote for him, or at all for that matter.

Like I've been seeing all over the place, this passage of this health"care" law is just 1 battle won by the Obama admin. The war on it though will
continue on. You can bet this will be fought by many and I have a feeling it will fall. They expect people to just go along, they think sure there
will be anger but what do Americans do best.... forget. But I'm not so sure this will be forgotten. Article 1 section 7 is crystal clear, and it's
also very clear, as argued FOR in the supreme court, that it IS a tax.
They can't have it both ways but they sure are trying. In true politician fashion, speaking out of both sides of their mouths. In other words...
LIARS! Corrupt arrogant liars.
