    According to this court, mandated social security, medicare, medicaid, taxes, and federal laws can no longer be in effect?

  2. Former Republican, now an Independent

    This was expected from a republican dominated supreme court that allowed undisclosed foreign donors to our campaigns and "rubber stamped" the stealing of an American presidential election in 2000.

  3. Gov 47th in Job Creation

    "With regards to the mandate, the individual responsibility program which I proposed, I was very pleased to see that the compromise from the two houses includes the personal responsibility principle, that is essential for bringing health care costs down for everyone, and for getting everybody the health insurance they deserve and need. So I was very pleased with that development."
    Who said that? Willard M Romney aka "Which Mitt?"
    Can't run from Romneycare Willard. Flip-flop. Today was a good day for That Mitt. Today is a horrible day for This Mitt. Etch.A.Sketch.

    Fox News is having a big hairy on this ruling. It will be interesting to see how they spin this ruling.

  9. Comrade Obama

    This is a sad day for all Americans as the government can tell you what to do, what to buy. You are not free to make your own choices, and will be penalized and fined if you do not comply. Welcome to the new USSR.

    Not at all comrade. It just means that I and other Americans won't be responsible for picking up the tab when you get sick or injured. It's all about personal responsibility.

    Lets hear it for the Supremes. Ruling in favor of health care for those folks that the insurance companies routinely refuse to insure. No more charging people extra because of conditions that may or may not ever cause people to use their insurance.
    This ruling will move the United States up on the list of health care among the nations of the world. Now, if we could only convince Republicans that funding education is an idea that will eventually benefit the country, our future generations might have a chance.

    Sleep well tonight Romney,sleep well.Mitts has to get some huge credit for Obamacare being upheld which is just hilarious for his conservative base. Fox News will need to have hundreds of EMT's onsite to deal with all the fainting and their hate may cause some heart attacks today. RoBama Care stands !!! Obama owes Mitts a big high five !

    Obamacare isn't unconstitutional and Justices have ruled in it's favor which furthermore proves people just run away with what they've heard from Republicans. Obama is a Constitutional Lawyer, so what does that make Republicans in Congress and your Governors?

    If I were a Dem, I would not be celebrating. The ruling was a surprise, but so will be the aftermath.

    This is a victory for ALL Americans. A constitutional law professor, President Obama, knows the CONSTITUTION.
