1. RomneyCare can be shown that Mitt Romney DOES CARE about the people. At a State level he implemented healthcare for all IN MA. Was it a tax, YEP.

2. Obama and the democrats used RomneyCare as THEIR MODEL for ObamaCare. Is ObamaCare a tax, YEP.

3. Obama and the democrats LIED to the American people. And they CONTINUE to lie to the American people.

4. NOTHING, repeat, NOTHING is FREE. ObamaCare can NOT be borne by the richy rich. They just do NOT have enough money to fund it.

5. The MIDDLE CLASS TAXPAYER will have this burden on THEIR backs along with the other trillion$ in debt Obama has created.

6. YES, your healthcare will be will be rationed. The government will have a MATRIX on what tests, procedures, etc you may have according to YOUR illness or medical problem (this isn't between YOU and YOUR doctor any more; this is now the government deciding YOUR health decisions-they just won't pay and their is NO RECOURSE with the government. How many people can outlast a government decision with the million$ and billion$ that the gov. can spend to deny and FIGHT your claims).

7. JUST LOOK AT WHAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS DONE TO PUBLIC EDUCATION IN THIS COUNTRY. Look at the fights between the Federal Government, State governments and local governments. Look at the hoops States and local entities need to jump through in order to get Federal $$$. THE SAME THING WILL HAPPEN TO OUR HEALTHCARE!

8. I want Supreme Court Justices who will make rulings based on laws, intellect; not on how they 'feel' about a case. Justices who 'worry' about their legacy, what others will think, or the psychological implications of their decisions-deeply wound and corrupt this country. STOP MAKING DAMN EXCUSES FOR POOR BEHAVIOR AND THOUGHT PROCESSES.

9. Not 1 democrat will I vote for in NOvember, not 1.

10. Do I think that Republicans have all the answers, NOPE! but I sure do want BALANCE in this country and that has NOT occurred. DIVISION has occurred.

Reclaim your country in NOvember!

Attention Democrats/Obama Supporters aka Communists, YOUR mistake is in the belief that you can have something you did not earn; that you are entitled to that which you did not earn; that you willingly allowed someone else to think for you. Your failure to research, study and inform yourself permitted reason to escape you. You have entered into a trap from which you cannot flee. A freedom that is given not earned can also be taken away; therefore, it is not freedom."
Obama HATES Christians. Pretty soon kids won't be able to graduate from public high school if they haven't had an abortion or tried homosexual activity.

us satan possessed liberals are too busy forging hawaiian birth certificates. Jk. No really it's one of the things you know best laid plans etc. We had big plans then teddy died and our "two years of majority" turned into effectively 3 months majority. And snce healthcare reform has been in some point of progress for both parties for the last 60 years and it was ready. And maybe we, the left knew they (you on the rite) would try to kill it because any progress by the left is bad for republicans. Even though almost all of the overhaul has had bipartisan support........until teabaggers and obstructionists came in.

Call all major newspapers and news outlets that cut and past from the AP and other liberal outlet.........I guess looking at the polls, they are ineffective also with their cut and past propaganda and carefully worded stories.

LOL - Yeah it passed, as a TAX! I had more laughs this passt Sunday watching the Dem. talking heads dance all around the "T" word! No,no,no, it's not a TAX it's a penalty, it's really not a TAX even thought that was the ONLY way this abomination could meet the constitutionality test. Hey peeps, IT'S A TAX AND A TAX ON A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN THE PRETEND 1% THE DNC IS TRYING TO PASS OFF. Something like 76% of those who make less than $150,000 a year, according to the CBO, will be affected by this TAX!

LOL - Nope, your new hero, last weeks conservative bat, declared, and was joined by 4 LIBERALS, tht the ONLY way this would pass the constitutionality test was if it were a TAX! Yep, it's a tax increase on about 3/4 of the middle class, as DECIDED BY THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES. Jiggle, dance, spin and backtrack all you want, it's STILL A TAX! And to say otherwise is to lie, outright lie. It was argued by the administration's lawyer, in court, that it was a TAX no matter what the bill said or what the Pres. said. As I have said, how can you tell anyone in this administration is telling a lie? Their MOUTH IS MOVING! LOL - spin away, it's STILL A TAX!

It will be interesting to see B.O. spin this one from the "tax burden" that it really is, when in his own words "this program will not cost a thin dime".(Well, not a dime, but several billions/trillions of dollars!) ABO--anybody but Obama in Nov.

Been reading and listening about roberts' decision and I am beginning to think he did the right thing here and he's a genius.

- Voting it as a tax took away the power it would have given fed with commerce clause.

- Voting it a tax means it now doesn't need a super majority to be voted down.

- Voting it a tax puts it into the House for control.

- Passing it as they did makes Obama have to deal with the "read my lips, no new taxes" scenario that took out Bush I from his reelection.

President Obama's healthcare law was validated by the supreme court and anybody disparaging it now just looks like bitter losers spewing sour grapes because they didn't get their way. I am happy President Obama got another victory. All the right can do now is cry about it... and those tears are flowing,WOW; LOL.
ObamaCare is the largest tax increase boondoggle to be placed on the heads of working americans.

They Supreme Court said it was a tax doodle britches. So it is either the biggest tax increase in history or it's unconstituional as a mandate..........which is it.

It's a TAX because the Supreme Court DECLARED it a tax. That was the ONLY way they could deem it constitutional. What part of that do you not understand? If is isn't a tax, and the administration continues to declare that it isn't a tax, then the only other alternative is for it to be unconstitutional and therefore void.

Right, or we will be levied a tax for non-use of said items. Tax and spend, the dem. party has not changed or grown in 50 or 60 years. Same old, same old. Tax and spend, tax and spend.

When Canada Nationalized HealthCare America won becuase many of Canadas best Doctors moved to the US rather than just be salaried govt workers. If ObamaCare stands hundreds of Dr's will surely relocate to Australia, and other FREE MARKET countries so they can operate as Doctors without a self important Bureaucrat making their decisions for them.

Higher Taxes, Less Doctors and Millions more flooding Hospitals.

OUCH! What does Obama have against the America?

whether roberts is THAT smart or not, i don't know, but it's still going to work out to the right's advantage...the obama administration is running in circles TRYING to convince the country it isn't a tax, and the over 60% of the country that never wanted the thing passed in the first place can now actually do something about getting it repealed.
vote for romney.

at the very least, roberts turned this into a one issue election...and, the obamites are on the short side of that issue.

If the ACA is such a fair and equitable Bill WHY are Union members and Politicians EXEMPT????????

Are their families more important than YOUR family like in the bad old Soviet Union?
