    I thought he'd say "No," but possibly not for the same reasons the hardline Conservative Justices might pick. Calling a fine for not having health insurance a tax is a much weaker legal argument than calling the mandate constitutional under the Interstate Commerce Clause -- but it's also much simpler. And therefore harder to knock down. :)

    Passing the bill may make it more difficult for Obama to be re-elected! Having everyone buy healthcare may not go well with the American people! We are losing so many of our freedoms under Obama! dictator Obama

    The individual mandate is really the only example of a loss of freedom under Obama. You will no longer have the freedom to not have health insurance.

    Other than that, you haven't lost any freedom under his administration.

    I see. So rather than answer as to what freedoms you lost, you'd rather post a stupid picture to avoid the question.

  • Heptarch Marie 2012/06/30 03:00:25

    Again, no proof that you've lost any freedoms. Is posting pictures that have no bearing on the conversation all you can do?
  • Marie Heptarch 2012/06/30 15:39:06

    One picture is worth 1000 words! Obama printing money
  • Heptarch Marie 2012/06/30 21:42:56

    Only if it's appropriate to the discussion. Which is not the case for yours. Since you're apparently incapable of actual debate, do you have a pithy little picture that outlines exactly what freedoms you've lost? Or are you just chock full of uselessness?

    Just don't pay it. What is the big deal. Stop paying all loans you have from student to home. Stop crying about the Government and shut them down. They are all the same no matter how you spell it. Go into work Monday and change you w-2 forms to nine dependents that is if you have a job. If you don’t go suck these ass holes for every penny you can. WHY THE HELL NOT GET YOURS WHILE THEY STILL HAVE SOME CHINES MONEY LEFT. America you had is gone people.

    But what it says is the 0bama administration lied to the citizens to get this bill
    passed. They swore it was not a tax and when it went to the SCOTUS where
    0bama's lawyers argued it was Constitutional because it was a tax not under the
    commerce clause....................

    That might be a winner for Romney!

    Oh, he has been saying that all along. He has to make it an issue the
    people can grasp, and probably come up with some substitute plan.
    The GOP already has some significant ideas in ways to decrease the
    cost...... competition across state lines like automobile insurance and
    tort reform. Just to say he would repeal it isn't adequate because
    what if one or both houses of the congress go Democrat for balance of
    power? Under those circumstances he couldn't repeal it. He might
    pull an 0bama and try not to enforce it, but that wouldn't be good. I have also
    heard him say he would give the states the ability to opt out of the
    Affordable Care Act just like they have excused Unions and others under
    0bama. That might be the only way if there is a Democratic congress.

    Who was it that said that elections have consequences? Who? That's right President Elect Obama on 11/5/2008. Justice Roberts may have just done for the Romney campaign what it couldn’t do for itself. Energize the base and to remind the independent moderate voter that just because you don’t vote for Liberal Progressive for President that, that in its self doesn’t make you a racist.

    Nothing wakes you up faster than cool bucket of water in the face. I’m willing to bet that when the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America votes on 6th November 2012 that it won’t be for President Obama.

    Somewhat surprised, although what IMPRESSED me with Justice Roberts' ruling was that he passed it under the TAX clause of the Constitution and NOT under the Commerce clause!!!

    So what that does is make Odumbocare the SINGLE LARGEST TAX INCREASE in American history!!! Yet another "first" for libtards!!!
