It's a fine day.

We know that come tomorrow, none of this will be here

So hold tight to your anger, hold tight to your anger
Hold tight to your anger, and don't fall to your fear


Take your best shot, let me see what you've got, bring on your wrecking ball.

Because it's good news for the average American and it's 2012 and it's a civilized country where people should have access to affordable healthcare whether I live there or not?

Score a BIG one for the President and the American people!

Since the New Deal, republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church-state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, campaign-finance reform, the environment and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident. The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the republican party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups.

 

"These are low-functioning sociopaths who defecate platitudes like "Freedom", "America", "Family", "Patriot", and "Values" with the speed and dispersal of diarrhea... they do so without thought, any genuine feeling invested or understanding of the sacrosanct concepts in question! They are the enemy of us all! They are the enemy within! They are the dry rot in the floorboards of our civilization! They are the cancer metastasizing through the body-politic! They are collectively a dangerous unknowing child with a gun now found and they will wound us terribly!" 

 

As long as baggers, bigots and bible thumpers control the repub party, they are doomed to go the way of the Dodo.

Opinion written by the Chief Justice. My respect for him has gone up considerably. Even though I always felt the constitutional issue in this was pretty clear, I didn't expect it to turn out this way.

Ditto on both points.

Since the New Deal, republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church-state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, campaign-finance reform, the environment and tax fairness.

I am surprised that it was Roberts putting it over the top, rather than Kennedy. Big "wow".

Want to see the entire ruling. Fascinating that the individual mandate was upheld but NOT (apparently) via the Commerce clause.

You can't buy ME, hot dog man.

I thought the commerce clause was what allowed them to tax?
