    Tiny crumb from today's SCOTUS decision aftermath:

    If ACA had been overturned, Democrats would be feeling the energy and determination and commitment which the right now feels. As much as it sucks that we have to wait until 2013 to fix this travesty, it's one small blessing that the energy is on our side.

    Ya'll on the left, go enjoy your parties. Get drunk. You won. It's all good. :eusa_whistle:

    and of course that wouldn't have gone in any of the other 3,000 threads on the ACA decision that came down today, right?

    The absolute best thing that could have come out of the court did.

    It shouldn't be up to the US Supreme Court to save us from bad politics.

    I just hope congress gets the message that they need to get to work now.

    I just sent Romney a donation. I hope others do the same. Since Tennessee is solid Romney I plan on traveling to neighboring swing states and helping get out the vote there. Obamanation has to go.

    Really? What happens in 2013? Romney as President? Well, if that does happen (it isn't going to by the way), the GOP would still need a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. That won't happen either.

    Thanks for playing.

    Would you be so kind as to link the source to that claim? I think there have been bigger taxes, such as the 15% payroll tax enacted in the 30's.
