The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) just ruled that the "Individual Mandate" clause of the Affordable Care Act (aka "Obamacare") raise taxes on everyone. The SCOTUS ruled the Individual Mandate Unconstitutional in relation to the Constitution's Commerce Clause -- but ruled it Constitutional as a tax increase.

President Obama promised he would not raised taxes on the working class, the middle class or the poor. Obama's 2012 re-election campaign may have suffered its greatest setback because now Obama has to answer this contradiction to the public, media and Moderates.

Chief Justice John Roberts, a Conservative appointed by President George W. Bush, decided the swing vote and wrote the court's opinion. Roberts joined the Liberal justices in the decision. President Obama may again blame George W. Bush...

    Who do you think is going to pay for this? Nothing is free in this world. This is not a mandate..its a tax...if it were a mandate..it would be unconstitutional.,Justice Roberts stated that in his opinion.

    I see the decision as a win for the socialists and a loss for the American citizens. Our socialist Congress will merely write a law fixing a heavy duty tax on all of us and that will be that.

    Ain't socialism grand? I'd really like to know how SCOTUS found ANY PART OF OBAMACARE CONSTITUTIONAL. It goes against the grain of everything in the US Constitution, against the grain of a representative government, against the grain of American mores and values. Today marks the saddest day of my life.

    The ability of DC to penalize the states for not expanding Medicaid was struck down and that at least will provide somewhat of an out for the states.

    In government, we have an idea, which begins out of good intentions. Then, down the line, after the idea is implemented, it evolves into something else. That's exactly what will happen with Obamacare. The poor will benefit, and as always, it will eventually impact the middle class in a less favorable way, such as government employees ending up with sub par medical coverage with no say in the matter.

    THe law hasn't gone into effect yet. The major costs of this wouldn't kick in until 2014..the cost is in the trillions. Where do you think the money is coming from? You want to borrow it from China ?

    Per the SCOTUS, Obama's Healthcare is a TAX. Wake the f*ck up and listen to just what is happening.

    That's not what he said. He said he wouldn't raise taxes on people making under $250,000 a year, and in fact he hasn't. As for the penalty provision of the Health Care Law, you can avoid paying that very easily - just get health insurance.

    So are you saying that only people making $250,000 don't have insurance. I think you need to rethink that. Most people whom don't have healthcare can afford it and make well under $250,000. So whom is going to get taxed, that is right the under $250,000 people.

    Jessie, these people have no clue. It's like talking to a wooden board, except the wooden board's thinking isn't clouded by some crack-pot economic ideology.
