RE: Freeatlast - There is much dissent, but Roberts and 4 other judges on the Supreme Court ruled that the Obamacare law was passed in a constitutional manner, and that Congress has the constitutional authority under their POWER TO CREAT TAXES to enact this legislation. Roberts and the Court also made it very clear that the Commerce Clause of the Constitution was absolutely NOT the justification for allowing this legislation. Roberts and the Court said absolutely nothing about the law being ",,,,,,right and good . And should be the law of the land"…… In fact Roberts states specifically that the Court should not and does not rule on the wisdom of laws, and that it is not the function of the Court to make such determinations.

I was hoping the law would be struck down, and I’m not sure how I feel about the decision today. I am concerned that to reach this decision the Court had to re-interpret (rewrite) the law as it was presented; but I can understand Robert’s position to a degree.

There are several points I take away from today’s decision:

One - When Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and President Obama presented the mandate and other portions of this legislation as something other than a monumentally huge tax increase, they were either a) ignorant of the law or b) lying. There is no other reasonable conclusion. Ignorant or lying…….I know what I believe. You can choose what you believe.

Two – If the Congress wants to enact a monumentally huge tax increase and spending program that will destroy the economy of the United States, for the purpose of funding a huge federal bureaucracy to mandate and control healthcare so that they can gain unprecedented control over the American people; they apparently have the constitutional authority to do so (at least per today’s judgment)

Three – The Supreme Court cannot protect the American people from the consequences of their own stupidity in their election choices.

Jerry you are absolutely right. Those that support this are not very smart because this country won't be able to handle it. the govt has never been successful in running anything. Those of you who think this is so good where is all the money coming from? SS is already in trouble and fading away and this Obumacrapcare is in debt before it gets off the ground.

This is a pyrrhic victory for Barry Soetoro as the SC ruled that the Commerce Clause does not give Congress the power to compel commerce but to regulate it. Thus, Roberts ruled this is a tax and it will be the largest tax increase ever. Elections have consequences. If Jimmy Carter would have been re-elected in 1980, Ronald Reagan could never haved saved this country. Now, we are at the precipice once again. This country cannot afford 4 more years of Barry. Unfortunately, Romney is no Ronald Reagan but he will have to do.

I saw a comment this morning from an Obamacare supporter who voiced approval for the Obamacare legislation; but went on to fret about how she was not sure she could depend on it and if it were not “too good to be true” because some later president or Congress could take it away. This was, of course, intended as a slap at the Republicans & conservatives who are vowing to repeal Obamacare. I’m sure the pro-Obamacare writer did not realize it or intend it, but she actually hit the nail on the head for a major argument against Obamacare……….WHAT THE GOVERNMENT GIVETH, THE GOVERNMENT CAN TAKETH AWAY.

Here is the difference between the sides, however:

The conservatives on the right vowing to repeal Obamacare will taketh it away, but they will do so while there are still many other private sector healthcare options for Americans to choose from. We can then work to address the long list of problems affecting out healthcare system with individual targeted fixes, rather than one impossibly huge over-reaching power grab.

On the other hand, the progressive left pushing for Obamacare want to enact and enforce this monstrosity so that all private sector options are eventually killed off, leaving us all at the mercy of one single government controlled healthcare system. What will we do then, when the government decides to taketh away healthcare, when there are no other options?? If they decide broccoli is good for us and everyone should buy broccoli (or get taxed more for their healthcare); then I guess we will all buy broccoli. Oh…..and by the way….. the broccoli will probably have to be purchased from members of an agricultural group that just happens to be a major contributor to the DNC.

They said Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction and used it as an excuse to kill thousands of our troops.

They're saying that Obama lied about passing ObamaCare (or RomneyCare) as a tax. So he lied to save lives.

Seems funny to me that more people in this country are angry about ObamaCare, but no one complained about the killing of thousands of our troops in Iraq.

I'm not big on the bible, I rarely go to church, but it seems to me that the one commandment that says, "Thou shall not kill," should start to carry a little more weight. We're killing our own troops for no reason and we're killing our own citizens because we're trying to treat health care like a status symbol. PATHETIC!

Bah @ Ronnie RayGun. The guy had an offer from Gorbachev in Iceland to eliminate all nuclear weapons but RayGun wouldn't give up his LAZERS IN SPACE, SDI. Also this so called fiscal conservative was responsible for the largest tax increase in the country's history up to that time.

Anyways 4 More Years for Obama!
