Romneycare was in one state, voted on by the people and not a tax.
Nobamacare was rammed down the throats of the American people, promised it wasn't a tax, the SC says it is. Let's guess what nobama will tax next?
IDIOTS---Republicans want to repeal the 2.5% Medical Device Tax while the healthcare compaies are charging the American Healthcare System almost TWICE THE PRICE that those same products fetch in Asia Canada and South America. Corruption in America--paid Lobbys-- cost all of us. Worry about healthcare costs? Why would you want to continue to be raped in America by our own for profit companies? Figting a 2.5% tax and they are charging 70-100% more? PIGS

Thank You Judge Roberts... Pay backs are a sneaky and a backdoor thing... A carbon copy of libtard loses and failures during the 2010 campaign. Tax and Cheat Obamacare once again at the forefront, a loser, with the economy, reigniting the fire, a 2012 losing libtard thing...
-
Thank You Chief Justice Roberts! You moved the goal Post. Obmacare, a serendipitous gift, a "TAX" that will be easily repealed with only 51 Senate Votes...
-
Democrats lost the house because of obamacare, Kennedy lost his bluest seat because of obamacare, Republican governorships increased because of obamacare, libtards lost the economy and jobs because of obamacare, occupy wall street lost because of obamacare, the unions lost because obamacare, occupy obama loses re-election because of obamacare...
-
Everthing obamacare touches, libtards lose because of obamacare...
-
obamacare tax and cheat, the tool that just keeps on delivering libtard defeat...
-
It's the culture...

Meanwhile back in reality. Actually the court found the mandate in the statute UNCONSTITUTIONAL AS WRITTEN. The chief justice interpreted the statute to be a TAX, not a PENALTY. Nobama and co. went to great lengths to define the statute as a PENALTY. Now we KNOW it was a TAX all along. Congress can NOT penalize but it can TAX. It's the old same but different analogy. As for repealing the law being a suicide mission, how do you figure that, when almost 70% of Americans DON'T want it? Nobamacare was also the reason for the rise of The Tea Party, and the biggest reason (D) got their a$$es handed to them in the 2010 midterms. You don't think those same people are going to be pissed about this ruling? Not to mention all the other shyt nobama has done and is doing? I believe as bad as this ruling was, in the end it will be the end of nobama. He has NOTHING on which to run. Now he will be known for implementing the BIGGEST TAX INCREASE IN HISTORY ON ALL OF AMERICANS, after he promised he would not raise taxes on anyone making under $250K. Does "read my lips, no new taxes" ring any bells? He also promised not to sign any new legislation that added 1 cent to the debt. This adds quite a few cents to the debt. He's so far gone, he just doesn't know it! Tea Party 2012!
While I question the validity of some of your assertions about the popularity of opposition to Obamacare, I share your belief that the Tea Party will continue to be enraged and not reluctant to share. However, I don’t believe that the Republicans, on the other hand, will revoke Obamacare nor that they have another plan, carefully guarded secret or not, with which to replace it. I believe most Americans favor having an affordable healthcare plan and that means socialism in some form, supported by taxes.

You also quoted George H.W. Bush who famously promised no new taxes while campaigning, only to have to break that promise because he believed it was the best thing to do even though he knew it would lead to his political demise. A politician ascends to the ranks of statesmen by putting the best interests of his constituents above personal political ambition. President Bush should be respected, not faulted, for that

They will repeal it, of course it will die in the senate where as of late everything does to die. As for HW, I never said it was a bad thing, I'm just saying it ended him. I do NOT believe however nobama is doing it for the "good" of anyone. This is a huge overreach of gov't power into the private lives of citizens and the private sector. The (R) do have a plan. They are going to reform healthcare, only through the PRIVATE sector, in the free market, where it should be. Tea Party 2012!

Please make that “Obama,” out of respect. As with President George H.W. Bush, I personally believe that he has acted in America’s best interest.

It may come as no surprise that I disagree with your belief that keeping healthcare in the private sector would be the better policy. The most cost efficient and least cumbersome program to manage would be a single payer program that could provide truly universal coverage for all Americans. I understand that insurance companies find health plans extremely lucrative, but they could continue to prosper from selling other highly lucrative kinds of insurance.

Attention pantywaist!!! Please explain to the class how it is even remotely possible how the lord marshal b. h. obama could associate for years with the communist/terrorist bill ayers and for the lord marshal to have launched his political career from the home of bill ayers and not harbor great disdain for The United States Constitution and Americanism? While you're at it explain to the class how people going in and out of a crack house don't do crack or GFY.

You'll have to excuse my lack of respect for someone who treats me like a child that can't make its own decisions. I have a problem showing respect to a president who has put the well being of illegals and deadbeats in front of those Americans who make this country what it is, the WORKING TAXPAYERS. I have a problem with showing respect for a president who does not believe in capitalism. The economic system that has made America the economic force to be reckoned with the world over. The economic engine that has provided a higher standard of living for more of its citizens than any other in history. I have a problem showing respect for a tyrant that disregards our laws for political gain, amnesty for illegals, at the expense of those who came here legally and bust their a$$es everyday to afford a decent living, without being a burder to others. I have a problem respecting a imbecile that throws billions of $ we don't have down the blackhole of "green energy", that has given little to no return, while negating a plan, KEYSTONE that could have not only reduced our dependence on Saudi oil, but lowered prices, and created jobs. I especially have a problem with respecting a race baitor who has used class warfare to pit the "disadvantaged" against those who work and achieve, as if they are responsible for the plight of the "disadvantaged". As for this job killing, healthcare disaster, nobamacare. You say it will be more efficient and less cumbersome? Name ONE gov't program that has EVER come in on budget and is efficient? The gov't has NEVER run anything effectively or efficiently, and you're willing to trust your healthcare to these idiots? Please tell me you're not as indoctrinated and naive as you sound?

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3, 2007... the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.

The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:
January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:

The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%

George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH
Remember the day and the economy had grown for almost 60 consecutive months.

January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?
BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!
The dems have caused the banking mess, screwball
Bush set a date of 2012 to end the war in Iraq.(We're still there, BTB)

Examples of Mr. Obama, now in his fourth year as president, adopting Bush-era measures:
Special operations forces. One of the first steps taken by President Bush after Sept. 11 was to revive, fund and expand special operations forces as the dog that would hunt down and kill terrorists.
President Bush also made U.S. Special Operations a war-independent command, just like U.S. Central Command, meaning it could plan and execute its own battle plans. BILL CLINTON IGNORED AL QUEDA FOR 8 YEARS AFTER MANY ATTACKS.

The U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the Army's Delta Force and Navy’s SEAL Team 6 mostly had focused on hostage rescue. After Sept. 11, they started receiving the manpower and intelligence to become manhunters. Their biggest successes: Saddam Hussein; al Qaeda’s top Iraq terrorist, Abu Musab Zarqawi; and Osama bin Laden.
Special Ops/Intelligence. The Bush administration fused commandos with the nation’s intelligence agencies — the CIA, the National Security Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency — into task forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This is what Nobama USED to get bin laden-------Bush's designs, nutball.

Nobama-----Healthcare is NOT a tax. Supreme Court--Yest it is. Millions of American are pissed about that fact.

You have to understand the liberal mind does NOT deal in reality, fact, historic presidence, or truth. All that matters are their "good intentions" actual results are not important, as their policies rarely result in positive results. More often than not, they are a waste of time and resources. Just look at what all their "good intentions" have gotten us! Tea Party 2012!

I believe that respect and dignity are qualities that all humans have by nature, and that demonstrating them reflects positively on both parties in any transaction.

I am proud to say that my family did indoctrinate me with their values. Life has not been a road of roses for me any more than for you, so I’m hardly naive. I just choose to be positive instead of feeling defeated or afraid.

By the way, is there a Tea Party 2012 candidate? If so, who?

Thanks.

Bush shouldn't be blamed for everything, but there is plenty that he can be blamed for. E.g....
1. Airline bailouts
2. Gutting the Freedom to Farm Act
3. Steel tariffs
4. TARP
5. Not sending sufficient trops to Iraq for the initial invasion
6. No Child Left Behind
7. Funding the War on Terror off-budget
9. Re: housing bubble, Bush took credit for increased mortgages speaking to Nat'l Urban League

George W. Bush was a big government president who expected capitalism without risks (cf. his feeble defense of TARP in "Decision Points"), and who set the stage for President Obama's further forays into socialism.

All I know is I can't take it anymore, and I pray to God a huge majority of voters feel the same way. I do not want to hear another word out of Obama's mouth or out of the mouth's of Pelosi, Harry, Juan, or any of the others. I want America back and out of the hands of these "beings". The thought of any of them being re-elected and doing even one more bit of destruction to our USA is absolutely beyond depressing. Some one told me I had to be more open minded and hear what the other side had to say! What? I've done nothing but listen and watched and had to ask myself what planet these people came here from. It's been suggested that it's not from Jupiter but perhaps from Stupiter. We have to get our reins back and put them in the hands of pro-Americans who know how to lead us. It's not just a good idea to do that....it's an absolute necessity.

If Romney wins, you all will be fighting for your individual right, of freedom of speech.
So you see, he not only likes to fire people, he also likes to control their prose.This man has a disturbing habit of twisting his statements on a whim.
