    I hope you're right. They need to shoot this down and go back to the drawing board. I know of no one who is against helping the truly needy in our country and we helped with their healthcare through Medicaid and many states have additional programs.

    It feels completely wrong having the government tell you that you have to buy something, at a higher price than you are now, or you will face fines and maybe jail. Obama kept going back and forth on the mandate, saying it's a tax, it's not a tax........ He knows it's unconstitutional and he couldn't spin it to make it look otherwise.

    If those liberal judges opt to set a precedent by effectively altering our constitution, kiss the country goodbye. Once they hand power to government to make these kinds of changes in our foundation, it's all down hill.

    Since when does anyone trust the analysis of conservatives further than they can throw them?

    You CONZ are just whistling past the graveyard on this one.


    Tell me...what will you do if the court finds this constitutional?

    Bitch about the LIBERAL BIAS on the Supreme Court?

    Yes. But you would do the same thing if it is found unconstitutional so who really cares right?

    Probably celebrate a little. That would hasten the march toward single payer.

    Republicans and the insurance lobby will have the most difficulty if the mandate is declared unconstitutional.

    BTW.........the court is not acting within the limits placed on it by the USC if the rule on it either way. That ought to bother you nutters but it doesn't. Wonder why?
