A thousand+ comments already; that didn't take long. Life is funny, iin an odd way, perhaps this will actually help decent, loyal Americans elect Gov. Romney, complete with a Repub House and Senate. Anyone who thinks this is a good piece of legislation just ask your doctor. If he' 40 plus years old he'll be getting out of his chosen field. For months now, many doctors in some states have been refusing to take on any additional Medicaid patients.

What will electing Romney do, pray tell??? Republicans hate Big Gubamint programs instituted by Dems; until they get into office. Then they expand them to suit their own Big Gubamint agenda. Unfortunately Obama-Care is not only here to stay, it will grow even bigger regardless of which party is in charge.

Tincan, Romney has been saying all along he will repeal it. He has never been focused on the SCOTUS ruling. The repub house has already sceduled a vote against the law. What do YOU mean, what will electing Romney do? Man, and stop with the kiddie stuff a la 'gubamint.' Everybody's doing that dude. And, btw, nobody likes a cry-baby.

Yeah yeah, and Republicans used to claim they'll get rid of the Dept. of Education, too. Then they get in and expand it. Look at your history.

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...
