The mission is to end the lord marshal b. h. obama and every democRat possible in November. The Constitution of The United States and the prosperity of America means nothing to them and it's past time for them to go...to hell.

Romney is offended that Obamacare was not named Romneycare when he did the same mandate in Massachusetts. He should get over it and fact-free retardlican fundamentalists, debating the facts with them is about as productive as jesus debate with religious nuts.

Obamacare?

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?

Are you saying Romneycare was actually a public vote? What are you talking about?
And why should we believe that that one state is special and the only one that could possibly host this mandate, which has been called by the right wing since Nixon? It's a pathetic disconnect to expect intelligent people to not see these complaints on the national healthcare bill as merely anti-Obama partisan hackery. But you can bank on the base to swallow that tripe.

The Supreme Court has ruled that nothing about Obamacare is unconstitutional, a decision that has infuriated right wing extremists, as indicated by today’s predictable flurry of increased expressions of rage, name calling and purveying of misinformation. Boehner, Romney and others have been barking even louder than usual but will not actually repeal or replace Obamacare because it would be political suicide. Although they have been going down that path so far, certainly their better judgment will ultimately prevail. I don’t think they’re crazy or stupid. I merely disagree with them for not having a better healthcare plan to offer.

What you and many on the left fail to see, is the fact that Roberts shot it down on the individual mandate and then also gave the states a way out of enacting. So while this looks like a huge win today, the bloom will fastly come off the rose when the supporters of Healthcare realize how they just got f'd on the implementation. Nobama lied when he said it wasn't a tax, and now the SC says it is. Romney donations in four hours after the decision were 1.5 million. More pouring in.
Roberts may have just energized the right like never before. You can bet that interveiw with George S, saying its not a tax will be a powerful campaign commercial for Romney.

Dance while you can, the music is just about over.

Each state is special, read the 10th Amendment, you must've missed it.

You're correct about the Right being energized, but Romney doesn't seem to be for anything -- just against Obamacare. If he is able to repeal it, with what will he replace it? What would be his federal health care policy? I've heard some intriguing ideas from some conservatives (e.g. indiviual tax write-offs for insurance, health care savings accounts, interstate insurance purchases, high risk pools, etc.), but where is the comprehensive GOP/Romney federal health plan. If the Republicans had reformed healthcare when they controlled the White House and Congress, then Omacare might have had less popular appeal. Yes, I know that it is unpopular, but Romney is taking a big risk by being little more than the Unobama. It's possible that the economy will stay in lousy ehough shape for Romney to win with his current strategy, but his propects may improve if he articulates a positive message.(This goes for other issues too, like immigration, foreign policy, etc.) It also wouldn't hurt if he'd pick a running mate who will energize his campaign and/or appeal to a constiuency with whom he currently has limited appeal.(e.g. Bobbby Jindal, Sara Martinez, etc.)

You are correct, but Romney needs to appeal to voters on stronger grounds than just states' rights. If he wants to improve his chances of winning, that is.

If they're that special that they're too good for the mandates of a presidential candidate that flip-flopped, they should leave the nation. Secede, no kick the bums out, end all aid and place embargoes on them.

Get a life, you little loser. Whoever wins any phony elections won't change a damn thing in real life other than the rhetoric of lame whackjobs like yourself. The only thing dancing here is your pissed off beer belly. And the only one with a personal stake in all this phony corrupt government dog and pony show are little losers like you with no rea lives of their own, no personal accomplishments just bitter hackery as you cheer on all this pro-wrestling of your politicians.

You really are a fkn bigot, aren't you? It will be changed. I obvioiusly have more of a life than you do. I stand for something, you just lay down and accept whatever runs over you, screwball.

Don't have a beer belly and am wondering why if nobama is so great, why congress and several unions are exempt from it.

You're gullible and you're stupid.

“With regards to the individual mandate,” then-Governor Romney said, “the individual responsibility program that I proposed, I was very pleased that the compromise between the two houses includes the personal responsibility mandate. That is essential for bringing the health care costs down for everyone and getting everyone the health insurance they need.”

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!

I told them, enjoy this moment in the sun while you can, because it will be short lived. Come November 2012 they'll be wishing it was November 2010, and we know how that worked out for them! Now nobama will be seen as the president that implemented the BIGGEST TAX INCREASE IN HISTORY ON ALL AMERICANS! Yes even those making UNDER $250K! How you're a millionaire making $250K still eludes me but whatever. It has also since been determined by the CBO nobamacare will add MORE than a cent to the debt. Wonder if anyone remembers nobama saying he would not sign ANY legislation that added 1 cent to the debt? I believe as bad as this ruling was, it will actually be what puts an end to this reign of terror that has been threatening us for 3.5 yrs! Tea Party 2012!

Mitt Romney received 1 million in donations yesterday alone, gee I wonder why.. Yes today we will be taking nobama's advice and move forward...with a donation to Governor Romney shortly! He stated a promise to halt Obamacare with repeal, the tea party and all freedom loving Americans who do want any part of this huge tax increase will be joining him in November!
