Obamacare Survives, but Political Playing Field Has Changed

Since you mention the fact that Article 1 Section 7 of the Constitution requires all tax bills to originate in the House of Representatives, isn't the tax as declared by Roberts an unconstitutional tax since the Health Care Act originated in the Senate?

Back to court! But Roberts is carrying the First Black President's (second if you count slick Willie) water for him anyway so it won't matter.

This is the kind of post that gives the liberal media all the ammo they need to label us all as racists. I don't know if you are or aren't one, but I suspect you don't speak for most of us here. For us, it isn't about ":the first black president", but rather about the "first openly socialist president".

The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision upholding the Obama administration's health care legislation was a victory for the president, his administration and his party. Their most ambitious legislative achievement has not been nullified, and they are not left in obvious disarray.

But it is only a partial victory and in some ways not a victory at all, both in the short run electorally and in the long run in terms of the constitutional order.

Politically Obamacare, as its critics call it, remains highly unpopular. It's possible that the court decision will boost its support, but unlikely.

Most voters...
