  1. This is Hilarious

    All of you people on here calling the court a leftist court have a dizzying intellect. Seriously? Seriously? The court is a right-leaning court. It has been for quite some time. Now that they make a decision that you don't like, suddenly they are left-leaning. It's knee slapping hilarious to read all this whining and the SCOTUS leaning left.

    For all you righties who have been talking about how great W. Bush was, he is the one that made the Chief Justice who he is today. Kangarooed him to the top of the court. Read it and weep.

  2. GROVER NORQUIST IS A ENEMY OF THE STATE/ConservaFASCISTS

    The decision that Americans must purchase health insurance by mere existence was based on liberal judges who have complete disregard for the US constitution of which they should have a nonpartisan interpretation of and who instead have made a judgement based politics.
    -----------------------------------------------–
    I, nor many other liberals would consider Chief Justice Roberts a liberal. We've seen judicial activism come from the likes of Scalia just this week. If you want to have a gripe about a SCOTUS ruling, look no further than Citizens United & Bush V. Gore.

    Scalia, Thomas and Alito would have voted NO for anything that had to do with Obama whether good for the country or not. This is a hot ticket just as social security and medicare was at one time. A couple years from now, people will wonder what all the fuss was about.

    Romneyput in 1000 new taxes on Mass. and called them "fees".

    Maybe President Obama should change his wording to "fees".

    Hey, its not like free markets made America the most productive nation on the earth. It was the giant government we had back in the 1800s that made us successful. Thank god we had an income tax back then, because without it I bet wed all be eating garbage and living in squalor,

    Ah, monolithic government, where would we be without you? I just want to say thank you for keeping me safe and directing our economy in a way that only beaurucrats are smart enough to know. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, because not enough freedom is better than too much,

    Rock on.

  7. November 6, 2012 -- The Start of the Second American Revolution

    The AMERICAN PEOPLE will have the final say this November. THAT is what this rulling says. Obama and huge numbers of Democrats can kiss their office goodbye. The American people WILL reclaim this country from the leftists in the government, and on the court. We have compromised all these years, only to end up being declared government owned slaves. No more compromising with our liberty. Consider the battle joined.

    Who the hell cares about Obama's scam give-away?

    What Bush's Medicare RX give-away was for big pharma, Obama's Affordable Healthcare scam is for big med-insurance.

    Bush's Medicare RX promised big pharma that drug costs would not be investigated or forced down by government.

    Obama's Patient Perdation and unAffordable Care Act promises big med-insurance that insurance costs will not be investigated or forced down by government.

    BFD!

    Best luck and love to the “Occupy Empire” educational and revolutionary movement.
