    How f'ing stupid can the SC be? The individual mandate is not a tax; it's a levy. Paying money on earned money or buying goods is a tax. But when you are being forced to just give the government money against your will then that is flat out a levy and there is no Constitutional basis for it. The mere fact that the decision was not 9-0 against Obamacare is criminal.

    The Supreme Court is leaning right, so they are probably pretty fucking stupid.

    Yeah, one percent of my income. Yeah, that is the end of the world. If I already have health insurance then I pay nothing. Yeah, that just is not that bad, and I get to hear your cries of pain. Seriously I would have shelled out the money just to hear the entire republican party this upset.
