I got an idea for you TBaggers-instead of having to buy mandated insurance, save that money to move to Canada where you dont HAVE to buy health insurance!! Wow! Problem solved. Your Welcome.

If you think this is a good idea, you are either really rich or really poor in which case hoorah for you but if you are middle class....this is a tax on the middle class which Obama said he would not do! And the gov mandating a business and people, demanding, telling us we HAVE to buy something? Get your head out of your butt! And I love that I HAVE to buy health insurance or pay a fine when I do my taxes. If I can pay out of pocket, why am I being fined for not having it? And if I can afford to do that, why can't I choose to do that? NOPE, the gov has to demand that I pay for something I am willing to pay for on my own!

Don't you understand the issue has never been about us buying insurance? Rather, it has been about the government mandating us to enter into third-party contract to buy government-approved products.

What kind of pro-choicers are you when you will deny me, beginning in 2014, the ability to purchase the type of health insurance policy that I want -- major medical only?

I don't need a lot of insurance. In fact, I don't really even need major medical because I could pay out of pocket.

Why do you hate women so much? When will you stop this assault on women and stop denying us the ability to make our own healthcare and economic decisions?

Mo-- sometimes I think I could best you in a debate on legalizing drugs; but then you post gems like the above, and I wonder if I might lose. That was good.

Thanks, but I am for drug legalisation already.

This War On Drugs Is Lost!

Didn't you know?

Yes Mo. I know your position. I would be taking the prohibition side in the debate. I'm not a libertarian, though you did get me to read some Hayek. That debate will have to wait until a better day. Until then remember, as the Bible says "as steal sharpens steal, so one person sharpens another". (Yes, I also know your an atheist.) Good night.

Move to Canada so I can go across the border when Canada's waiting line is 6 months long for a cancer screening? No thanks.

More fun to just win another landslide victory in November.

The verdict is in, and it's a major disappointment to Obamacare opponents.  CNN initially reported that the individual mandate had been struck down under the Commerce Clause, then corrected its reporting: Obamacare has been upheld as a tax.  It looks like Obamacare's Medicaid expansion has been limited, but not struck down.  Chief Justice Roberts has reportedly joined the Left flank of the Court, authoring the decision (the key bits are on pages 31, 32). 

Confirmed:  The decision was 5-4, with Justices Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas and Alito dissenting. According to SCOTUS blog, the four dissenters were prepared to strike...
