I love Paul Ryan's idea of the Medicare vouchers so that all of the old people who did not save anything to live retired can no longer get by scott free and live big off of the government. Once they have to spend $6-12K a year on their health insurance, they can no longer take all of these trips to Europe and buy second homes on government money. These are the very people who are in the tea party. These are the ones who tell everyone else not to live off of the government, they are the ones telling young people to go without SS and Medicare, telling them to save for their own retirements. yeah, as long as they don't have to. So it would be really good if the politicians forced the tea party to put their money where their big mouths are and force them to take responsibility and pay up for their expensive old aged heatlh care. And, Medicare has $85 trillion of debt, so vouchers would get rid of that huge debt that is hanging over all of our heads. And, this tea party wants spending cuts, well this is where most of the money is going. So let them put their money up to match the stuff that is coming out of their mouths. And, if they don't like the idea of losing government health care and they don't want to lose their government monies and their socialism, then let them stand up for socialism and fight for a national sales tax to keep this stuff they want. But, they are not going to be able to simply keep taking most of the government monies and pretending that is not what they are doing. Reality is going to step up to the plate pretty soon here due to the massive debts in SS and Medicare.

The way they do things in Texas is like George Bush did things. They give people minimum wage jobs and no health insurance and all the money goes only to a few folks at the top. That's how they roll in Texas.

So, you living in, what? Georgia? And you're posing as an expert on Texas? You're fckin' hilarious...I've been to, and through, Georgia. I never saw so many ignorant illiterate red necks and black people, and mexicans living in rundown filthy trailer parks in the U.S. before. Your state is worse than Florida. Those people sure can't be earning any more than minimum wages there.

I live in Round Rock, Texas. You gonna tell me all we earn here is min. wage?

How come the tea party is old farts on socialist security, union pensions, several government penions and on government health care?? Why is that? How come they didn't save one cent of their own money to live retired? How did they all end up dependent on the goverment for a bunch of money and for medical care to live retired? What's up with that? I thought the tea party hated government health care, hated socialism, wanted spending cuts, and that they were rugged individualists who had saved their own money to live retired?? What happened there??
Paul Ryan is going to make all you rich old folks on the government take a $12,000 a year voucher and then you have to go and pay $6,000 a year to chip in to buy your own old aged health insurance. Oh, and he also said if you have other incomes retired, he will "means test" you. That means you pay more like $12,000 a year for your own medical coverage. Oh, and if you have the wifee who never worked and who never paid into SS and Medicare, drawing down SS and Medicare too, sucking the life out of the taxpayers, Paul Ryan says you can pay up another $6,000-$12,000 per year for her health insurance too. Yahoo!!! And, Romney loves Paul Ryan's plan and he may make Paul Ryan his VP. Finally, the rich old folks are going to have to get off of the government's back. Yahoo!! I can't wait until the tea party has to get off of the government. That is where most of the tax money is going.
Beautiful post, but these folks are not sharp enough to realize they vote against their own self interest. It's amazing i went on the fox news website and 69 percent think the courts vote favors Republicans. Man what happened to the William F. Buckleys you know real sharp republican's you could admire?

They went farther right. There aren't any very sharp Democrats today like John F. Kennedy, so they had to in order to counter the socialist Democrats (a/k/a 'progressives') of today.

Bishop Romnutz not qualified to walk the streets unattended...he has gone off the deep end...he is INSANE. Bishop Romputz needs to RESIGN, to give up the nomination. Heck, Santorum thinks so.

"Since the court's ruling, the Republican has taken care not to mention his state law. He left it out of his statement Thursday in response to the Supreme Court ruling and didn't bring it up when he talked about health care at a private fundraiser Friday in New York."

Mutt Romney, pathological LIAR.

SCOTUS rules obamacare a tax. What a pisser.

1. Senate can pass a tax cut on a simple majority vote.
2. Commerce clause issue still not resolved
3. obama promised no taxes on middle income

and worst of all

4. Romney (obama) can direct the IRS (DOJ) to not enforce the tax (DOMA)

Maybe that's why liberal reaction is so mute.

I make 70,000 a year with no overtime allowed, so you can guess I am salaried. I pay $500.00 a month for my part of an HMO. I then pay $30.00 for co pay,$150.00/day hospital, and whatever the pharmacy does not get from the HMO. I then pay $5,000.00/year for property tax on a $217,000 house worth $90,000.00. I pay $750.00/paycheck for SSI, MEDICARE, State Taxes, Federal taxes, and anything else politicians such as MOONBEAM try to pass. Not to mention my part of my retirement plan, any expenses for my job such as an office professional may need, then fuel to get to work, and the taxes I have to pay for my brown bag lunch to save a dime. I also pay my own way through school to get my degree, at $750.00/credit hour, so I do not have to spend the rest of my life busting my ass so some lazy turd can have a free ride in my nine year old used car, or my twelve year old truck, or on my eight year old motorcycle. So excuse me if I CHOOSE not cry for you. Oh maybe you should try to earn your keep before you whine about what the other guy has and you do not. I grew up with a father who worked the night shift so our mother could stay home and raise two kids on one pay check. So when I chose to say no to people triing to raise taxes to pay for lazy turds, keep your bull to your self.

Liberal reaction is huge. People are relieved. Parents can sleep at night. Tons of Americans are looking forward to 2014 and full implementation.

Americans love, by wide margins, components of the ACA and will be VERY upset when they realize that Republiscum want to take them away. Health care, before Obama, was barely a passing thought for most and now it is front and center as the slow moving disaster it is.

Candidate Romney is running against Governor Romney and all of the debates, emails, interviews where Governor Romney was strongly for the individual mandate and tax penalty. Which pathological liar will win that debate?

Oh yeah, dummy. ObamaCare, the ACA, is not a TAX. No one said that.

If you do not have insurance and you are not exempt from the requirement to have insurance then you will pay a PENALTY. Taxes come in all forms including FEES and PENALTIES. They act as a tax.

Since most Americans receive health insurance from their employers, most Americans would not be paying a tax. Seniors on Medicare and those on Medicaid will not be paying a tax. Since there will be no more pre-existing condition penalties in 2014, more individuals will be able to purchase health insurance.

Maybe, 4 million Americans might be subject to the penalty. If health insurance policies are a good value relative to the penalty then that number might be much, much smaller. So you rightwing lunatics are all worked up about the freely made choice of 1.5% of the population?

Really?

No one believes you. To you and Smut Romputz, keep your Mitts off of my health care.

Is this a joke? Obama is actually wasting time and energy into commenting on a piece of trash hip hop artist..what a disgrace to USA. We have soldiers DYING in foreign countries for USA, we have Americas out of work, we have American with disabilities struggling to find support, we have homeless vets on our streets, we have foster kids who have no family, we have nursing homes abusing elderly folks, we have kids who aren’t learning at underfunded schools, we have crime waves sweeping America, we have fathers and mothers who can’t find jobs, we have families losing their homes and jobs, we have hospitals shutting down because of illegal immigrants not paying bills, we have millions of Americans who don’t have adequate dental care, we have teens who can’t find jobs after high school, we have teachers, police and fire fighters who aren’t getting paid enough, yet Obama is just living it up having a grand old time using our tax dollars to fly his family around the world and go on safaris, etc…and he’s drinking beer and watching basketball and playing golf, shoot this guy is unreal, he is more outta touch than any President this USA has EVER seen. Oh, but he’s half black, half white, so we need a change in COLOR so wow let’s all disassociate from reality and pretend this is all so wunderful…..wee, smoke another dubie….and by the way Obama is a closet gay..and his pops was a Muslim and weeeeeeeeee, it’s a wunderful day in the neighborhood….weee……Oh and the PIZZA guy who hugs President Obama…this shows how little respect this President has. Nobody would DARE bear hug a President of the USA if they weren’t such a disrespected and joke of a President. He’s more of a celeb than a man in charge or command. Where was the secret service when he was being bear hugged? Oh, they were probably in a ROOM with HOOKERS, negotiating the PRICE. I say HILLARY Clinton for President. Obama wouldn’t last two days in a war zone. Hillary would. She’s tough. He’s a soft man who tries to be tough talking and it’s just so obvious he’s so unqualified to run this country. He was elected by Hollywood and those who worship Hollywood. How sad. Obama needs to go. He’s not doing jack for USA. He’s just using his position to get free housing, free transportation, free schooling for his kids, free travel expenses for his family, free dental and medical care, free food, free utilities, etc….
