My Facebook feed is a hilarious stream of ridiculous and antiquated ideas and statements right now. My favorite, religions people somehow thinking this is somehow "evil" and prayers need to be said for the country. Utah is fun.

Both CNN and FOX initially reported that the individual mandate was struck down.

Fuck your stupid, shitty cable media, America.

Roberts: It's a tax!

Seriously the U.S. public should decide with this election and it's not the Supreme Court's duty to legislate. Obama was elected and if they don't like it they can always elect someone else in November. Not only that, it's likely that the Republican plan won't be the same as the status quo because most people don't want the current system so it's going to be some years before this all gets sussed out, but the U.S. system is going to change nonetheless.

Of course I have no idea how any of this is going to work going forward (and Obama stating the Mandate is NOT a tax back in 2009). I'm sure once the dust settles, there may be some interesting aspects, but I think there is more good news than bad from this.
I would say most of the people without health insurance who will be paying the 1% tax are young and lower income and so unlikely to vote against Obama anyway. Obama has a pretty steep lead with people under 30.

There are only 5 states that are up for grabs(Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada) and I don't think this will impact Obama's chances in any of those states. All 5 are actually leaning towards Obama right now and unless Romney picks Bob McConnell of Virginia as his running mate, Virginia will being going Blue and that automatically wins the election for Obama.

Well, the likely Obama victory in November will cement this then. Republicans need to back to go back to the drawing board if they want to retake the White House in 2016. They need a platform that is more centrist and has little or nothing to do with the old school Republicans from the 1920s and 1950s and more to do with Reagan and Bush Sr., which they have drifted from.

This is just right wing echo chamber code for when something doesn't work out like you anticipated.

Roberts said he can't knockdown a law that people think is bad. As a tax it is constitutional.

No I'm talking about how Roberts interpreted it. Of course the right wanted the mandate struck down but now it's not a mandate but a tax.

“Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness,” Roberts said.
You're too knee jerk BVS. I'm not against the ruling.

Read the post again.

I'm agreeing with Roberts. It's up to the public to decide.

So you don't believe the Supreme Court legislated today? I'm just trying to clarify.
