    I really shouldn't say this, but I am going to enjoy this post.

    A lot.

    It seems that the Left is convinced that Roberts upheld Obamacare by stomping on their dreams of an all powerful government.

    Roberts health care opinion, Commerce Clause: The real reason the chief justice upheld Obamacare. - Slate Magazine

    We now have a new type of bad sportsmanship, whining about winning.

    Does it bother you that you might have lost and are too stupid to see it until someone explains it to you?

    The right wing is upset because Roberts didn't go along with expanding the commerce clause, excuse me, I mean the right wing is upset because Roberts gutted the commerce clause?

    Want to try that one again?

    You should pull your head out. it's a tax, thats not a win for Obama. He's going to have to explain this new tax to his constituents and independents. that task will not be easy because he swore it would not be a tax. Thats problematic for the O.

    Progressives are not overjoyed with Obamacare in general. It doesn't go far enough.

    We'll eventually have Medicare for all. It's the right thing to do.

    Once we got over the initial shock of Roberts siding with the leftists, cooler heads do seem to be seeing the silver lining here. Not only are the Democrats now in the position of having to defend an increasingly unpopular healthcare bill that SCOTUS has just redefined as a tax, but a tax that is the largest new tax ever imposed on a people in the history of the world. And, as you point out, it will make it far more difficult for Fearless Leader and Democrats to use the commerce clause to seize ever more power.

    It will be fun watching the Democrats try to defend Obama's signature legislation on the basis that Congress has unlimited power to tax and spend and used it. :)

    Exactly. Going forward, the govt. is going to have to sell these types of pet project mandates as what they are if it forces people to commence in commerce. A tax. Good luck with that one. Roberts decision was a good one adn now the ball is in the court of congress on the levying of taxcation.

    Not good for democrat big spenders...or republicans alike that want the big govt,.

    Will this law have to go back to congress and senate so they can assess a tax before implementation?
