    I haven't waded through the dozens of threads about the Supreme Court ruling on obamacare, but...



    ...did Roberts do this on purpose to help Romney get elected/hasten the repeal of this mess? What say you all?

    I was shocked that he labeled the mandate a tax instead of tossing it out as unconstitutional. My head is still reeling over that call.

    I think CJ Roberts did this because he believes the mandate is constitutional.

    I think he gave us whether he intended to or not the White House, the Senate and the House on a silver platter.

    He defined the war for us.

    We aren't fighting health care, we aren't fighting to make sure old people and poor people die like the left wing nutbars like Pelosi and Reid have framed the battle.

    It's out in the open now. We are in war games against what could be the largest tax ever perpetrated on the American public by Pelosi, Reid and Obama.

    They said it wasn't. Remember all the quotes that Obamacare wasn'at a t tax. Obamacare is a huge unwieldy tax.

    My thanks to Roberts. It feels like Christmas.:D

    Obviously you need to ask the Chief Justice. Read his written opinion, is it contrived for such a purpose as you seem to suppose? If so, in your opinion would such a motivation be considered misfeasance and, hence, a "high crime or misdemeanor"?

    "The American people were handed a loss.... the moocher class gets more free shit and the producer class just gets a bigger bill"

    How do you figure? The moocher class - those who don't purchase medical insurance - are provided care at emergency centers on the taxpayer's dime.
