Read the decision and you will find that because the remedy for being uninsured is a tax and not a penalty or a fine, the government's ability to increase the tax is limited without further legislative action, which is highly unlikely.
Why unlikely? Supplysider conservatives have been losing ground and political clout in the Congress--John Boehner removed the supplysider leaders from all the most important Committees.

Because Fox News and idiotic right wing nutcases like Glenn Beck told him so. Of course, the FACT Romney paid taxes to foreign countries and used the foreign tax credit to offset taxes he owed in the United States is completely acceptable in their eyes. Manipulation of the tax code is OK just as long as it is to their advantage. Screw everyone else.

WTF is "the Commons"?

Commie codespeak?

What do you put food waste in for disposal?

Given that all landfills are required to have linings and leachate collection and treatment systems, exactly what damage is caused by plastic bags?

A very rare occurrence, mainly because crime is ignored, just as you did in your post.

Security must come first, or none of the rest is possible.

There is zero, zip, nada chance that the house would approve any additional funding for Obamacare.

And additional funding, lots of it, will be necessary as the program crashes.

Boehner is gone as Speaker if he allows the amnesty bill to pass.

Any American citizen cam deduct taxes paid to foreign countries, for dividends for example, from his US income tax.

Galt believes in a woman's right to choose to kill her baby prior to viability for whatever reason she chooses, but that aborting a viable fetus is infanticide.

Galt also believes that abortion is immoral, even if not illegal.

The term "pro-choice" is subject to so many interpretations as to be meaningless.

The poll had respondents stating

53% saying that abortion should be legal under special circumstances
22% illegal
21% legal under any circumstances

As angry as it makes Dave at least 59% of the population thinks abortion should be limited/illegal in most or all circumstances.

Instead of the above numbers which would have pushed this to 75% I used the Pro Choice number as the indicator
