No Matter What Court Decides, Health Care Law Has 'Got to Go,' Romney Says

STERLING, Va. - Mitt Romney may not know how the Supreme Court is going to rule on President Obama's health care plan on Thursday, but he did have one prediction at a campaign rally here on the eve of the decision: "My guess is they're not sleeping real well at the White House tonight."

The court should just as well throw the whole thing out. Obama is already a lame duck. If the court throws it out it will save the next congress the time and bother to rescend it.

As usual, sociopath Bishop Romputz thinks that serious issues such as life and death are ripe for childish mockery.

More proof that Bishop Romputz is:

1. A pathological liar having supported the individual mandate in Massachusetts.

2. A sociopath who believes that Mormons are the Chosen Ones, he is the top of the Mormon hierarchy and everyone else (not a billionaire or millionaire) can go **** themselves.

If the SCOTUS throws out the Heritage Foundation/Bishop Romputz individual mandate it will prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Presidency must remain out of GOP hands...forever.

Good luck with that, Mittens:

From SCOTUSblog:

"The bottom line: the entire ACA is upheld, with the exception that the federal government's power to terminate states' Medicaid funds is narrowly read."

Your turn...:)

Im appaled. The republic took a hit. However there is still hope. Maybe Romney will be elected and the whole shebang repealed. Maybe Montana or Texas or some other state will secede from the Union and let the Chrumudgeon become a resident. However for now the socilaist commie liberals have won.

Romney's Platform: "12 Sound Reasons to REPEAL Obamacare"


No Matter what the Leftist Court stacked with 2 Political Appointees says, Obamacare Has To Go and I will REPEAL IT.
So, let us count the ways that it violates basic principles of sound policy.


1. It discriminates against young people, forcing them to purchase health insurance at inflated prices in order to subsidize older beneficiaries.

2. Simultaneously, the law imposes severe penalties on young people who use Health Savings Accounts to secure health benefits for themselves in later years.

3. Already the administration has granted a long list of exemptions to various companies and unions.

4. Recently, the Department of Health and Human Services dictated that employers, including religious organizations, must cover contraception and abortion-causing drugs in their health plans. Apart from any moral objections to such provisions, why should the federal government tell employers and employees what their health insurance has to cover?

5. Good public policy would encourage health care consumers to shop around and purchase insurance policies that are best suited to their own needs and spending priorities. The health care reform bill does the opposite. Decision-making power is turned over to bureaucrats, who pay no price for decisions that are costly or wrong-headed.

* Good public policy does not raise false expectations. Backers of the health reform bill violated this principle three times over.
Here are those Obama LIES:

6. They promised a) anyone can "keep their plan if they like it'; FALSE.

According to a McKinsey & Co. study, a third to a half of employers plan to stop offering health insurance beginning in 2014. Faced with expensive mandates and less expensive fines, many employers will choose the fines and cause their employees to move to government-sponsored plans.

7. the plan would mandate many new benefits and still reduce the average family premium by $2,500; which is clearly FALSE.

Another study concludes that a typical family health insurance plan costing $12,300 today will cost more than twice that by 2019.
There are no "free" mandates or other benefits -- to paraphrase Milton Friedman.

8. That it wouldn't add "a single dime" to the federal deficit. FALSE. It adds over $1.76 TRILLION to the Debt.

Last October, the administration dropped the long-term care program known as the Class Program from implementation of the new law as financially unworkable. It also added $111 billion premium subsidies to its proposed fiscal 2013 budget.

9. Good public policy avoids ticking time bombs. The legislation will increase Medicaid enrollment by an estimated 24 million new users by 2015. This will put states further into Debt.

10. The law includes a massive new health entitlement/income redistribution program for families earning more than three times the poverty level. In 2014, it will channel up to $3,000 in taxpayers funds to families making up to $95,000.

11. The law is fiscally irresponsible. It includes a raft of new taxes. But these appear to be wholly inadequate to the task of paying the bill for over-promising and extending new entitlements to tens of millions of people. That leaves rationing as a last resort, and the government's own reports contemplate major cutbacks in Medicare spending down the road.

12. The Affordable Care Act is truly unaffordable… and unsustainable. Our government should not erode our freedoms, degrade our quality of life, or bankrupt our future. The health care reform bill does all those things. If it is not struck down, it should be repealed.

It shows very clearly how SCOTUS appointments are among the most important things a POTUS does.

No SCOTUS appointment should ever be made by a Republiscum....ever.

How the blooming hell, you freaking idiot moron stupid ridiculous birdbrain, is Obama a dictator when Roberts decided Obamacare was constitutional?

God you are stupid stupid stupid, you live on stupid street, you eat stupid food, you are just a pack of stupid.

Bishop Mutt Romputz is promising to rip health care from millions of Americans while he enjoys tax payer paid health care for himself and his family.

Yeah, I see that going over well.

Bishop Mutt Romputz is a sociopath.

We are always hoping to see Texas secede. That way they can no longer send us any more GW Bushes. They promise and yet never take any steps towards its accomplishment. Go, move there and start the movement in earnest Churm.

Yeah, having all Americans get health care is really bad for the country. Go ahead and run with that.
