This is an American tragedy.... In 2014 ins companies will no longer be allowed to deny coverage to folks with pre-existing conditions!!!! It is a basic American right to let people die because they were born with some sort of physical defect that modern medical technology can fix, but people can't afford to pay for in the healthcare free market. Tragedy! In 2014 people will no longer have enormous co-pays for colonoscopies and mammagrams!!!! Again, it's a basic American right to let people die because they can't afford medical tests or their enormous co-pays. Now they'll be able to afford these life saving tests, which will violate their basic rights as an American to die unnecessarily from a lack of testing!!!! Tragedy!

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...
