But, the Supreme Court did not state it could not be repelled. They did not declare it was a right. It was that it could stand as a new tax as congress can tax.

Nothing about the Supreme Court decision prevents the repeal of Obamacare.

Plus, the Obamacare individual mandate is only legal as a tax, a finding that has consequences that are not yet apparent.

Read the entire decision about the limitations on the mandate.

Mainstream Media Dismiss Fox's Benghazi Scandal Mongering

Mainstream media have dismissed recent scandal mongering by sources like Fox News over the initial de-classified talking points used to describe the September 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, as baseless and a distraction.

Recently released emails that detailed the creation of the initial talking points used to describe the attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi confirmed past reporting that changes made to the talking points were not political and were approved by intelligence agencies. Indeed, CBS Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett concluded on CBS Evening News that the released emails proved that "[t]here is no evidence...[that] the White House orchestrated these changes."

The Washington Post and The New York Times went further, declaring the continued scandal mongering over the talking points drew continued focus to a "phony issue."

The investigations ensnaring the White House have unified the Republican Party, energized a political base shattered by election losses and given common purpose to lawmakers divided over a legislative agenda.

The most pressing question for Congressional Republicans is no longer how to finesse changes to immigration law or gun control, but how far they can push their cases against President Obama without inciting a backlash of the sort that has left them staggering in the past.

With the House set on Friday to convene the first of its hearings into the targeting of conservative groups by the Internal Revenue Service, the lessons learned from the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, which cost Republicans in elections in 1998, have been on display in recent days. Republicans took obvious pains to balance their investigatory zeal with a promise to stay committed to a legislative agenda.

In a television appearance Wednesday, Representative Darrell Issa, the often aggressive California Republican who is leading multiple inquiries, struck a notably calm tone and promised to work with Mr. Obama. Just hours earlier, Mr. Issa had a nasty exchange with Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. during a House Judiciary Committee hearing.

Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio struck a similar theme Thursday.

“Our job is to legislate, and we’re trying to legislate things that will help create jobs in our country,” Mr. Boehner said.“But we also have a responsibility, under the Constitution, to provide oversight of the executive branch of government.”

In private, House lawmakers say, the speaker — a member of the leadership in the Clinton era — has also urged caution. Representative Jason Chaffetz, Republican of Utah, who has led the charge on the Obama administration’s handling of the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, said the speaker had urged him to move slowly and methodically — contrary, he acknowledged, to his inclinations. And House leaders have shown “great reluctance” to allow House committees to issue subpoenas, even as rank-and-file members and the conservative political base have been demanding them, Mr. Chaffetz said.

Representative Charles Boustany Jr., Republican of Louisiana and a key driver in an investigation of the I.R.S. by the Ways and Means Committee, said,“I’m being very cautious not to overplay my hand.”

The 'individual mandate' was the Republican contribution to Obamacare put in to protect the insurance companies , but republicans can't tell the truth about their 'tax' or their Tea Party pals like Norquist would have 10 screaming hissy fits.

ANOTHER big SCANDAL exposed by the ever vigilant right wing 'media'!

The Daily Caller Accuses Obama Of Breaching ‘Marine Umbrella Protocol’

The conservative news website The Daily Caller has accused President Obama of violating Marine Corps regulations when he had a pair of Marines hold umbrellas above himself and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at an outdoor press conference on Thursday.

From The Daily Caller's report:

According to Marine Corps regulation MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3, a male Marine is not allowed to carry an umbrella while in uniform. There is no provision in the Marine Corps uniform regulation guidelines that allows a male Marine to carry an umbrella.

http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/d...

OMG another 'investigation'! we must know who ordered a Marine to carry an umbrella! if it was Obama....impeach!!
