      Forgive me if I trust a Supreme Court Justice’s interpretation of the Constitution over your community college level understanding of it.

      ^Which he had no right to do,because as a judge, he takes the current law, whose authors said multiple times “it was not a tax”, reviews it, and makes a decision. He is not supposed to make his own definitions to any of the clauses.

      In regard to the “tax vs. mandate” ruling, there could be unforeseen advantages for the Republican Party both in the upcoming election and throughout the next four years. A few would be:
      1. A galvanization of the party along with a strong draw to the moderates to vote with the GOP.
      2. Because it is a tax it may be found to be much easier to repeal by congress alone than by having to go through two branches of government.
      3. Financially it will fail rapidly and force by its failure alone a repeal of its own legislation.
      4. It has the potential to turn many non-liberal/financially conservative Democrats to the GOP in November after two months of having their incomes stifled.

      ^What RushFratbaugh said was completely spot on with conservative principles. The Supreme Court and all of its proceedings are a conservative philosophy (checks and balances). But the issue with his argument is that nothing like that was seen in this case. Roberts did not act as a referee here, but as a lawmaker.

      ^ exactly. He named a mandate a “tax” so it’s legal if you call it a tax and illegal if you call it a mandate. That’s like me murdering someone(which is obviously illegal) but if someone says I “killed” him it’s somehow legal all of the sudden given a different word. It’s the same fucking thing!

      One of Obama’s major arguments in getting moderates to support it was that it would not be a tax on the middle class. The Supreme Court ruled yesterday that the ACA is indeed, a tax on the middle class, thus proving Obama to be a liar. Their decision might actually provide a brilliant opportunity for the Republicans this election season and it would be great if they could capitalize on it.

      No, he did his job by upholding a law that conflicted with his personal views. The supreme court’s job is to referee, not to be a player. The ACA was a constitutional law and therefore was enforced by the supreme court. If you really loved America so fucking much, you’d actually be happy that the only institution whose function is to be free of politicization is still functioning as such. If you want to repeal the ACA, perform your obligation as a citizen and cast a fucking vote for someone who will vote to do so.

      Fundamentally, it is unconstitutional. The Obama campaign said themselves that “the ACA is in no way a tax”. Chief Justice Roberts took it upon himself to say, no, it is a tax. That is judicial activism, the opposite of being a referee.

      ^^ Rush Fratbaugh. You have the name of the most conservative talk show host in America and you are making liberal comments on the most conservative web site on the web! Fuck you.

      ^^Actually, he did have the right to do that. Current constitutional law says that the Court can disregard the designated name Congress gives an exaction (whether they call it a penalty or a tax) and look at the substance and application to determine what it is. It’s called federalism and checks and balances. If Congress could call an exaction whatever they wanted and the Court, an equal branch, was powerless to say otherwise, Congress would have an unchecked power. Appreciate the fact that there are nuances in the law that you know nothing about unless you study this stuff and have some respect for the Supreme Court.

    Chief Justice Roberts’ decision makes the November election all about ObamaCare – and the President will have to defend his lies about it not being a tax, about it not raising premiums, about its costs to the Treasury, about being able to keep your own doctor. Unlike the last round Mr. President, we’ve read the bill this time – and sir we are pissed. Chief Justice Roberts’ decision will re-energize Conservatives, Tea Partiers, Libertarians, and Republicans – because now the ballot box is all that stands in the way of ObamaCare’s full implementation in 2014. Vote with your dollars and your ballot. For as of today, your government can tax you if you don’t eat your broccoli.

    …because your parents have good jobs that provide healthcare for your family. Good luck getting an entry level job for any corporation that will offer a healthcare package. I guess it’s lucky you can stay on your parents’ awesome coverage til you’re 26.
