    They were right by saying it isn't Constitutional under the Commerce Clause, and they are right that it is a tax and therefor is constitutional.

    Don't get me wrong, Obamacare is a BAD bill and will ruin the economy and healthcare, but the damage was done when we elected obama as POTUS and not when the justices correctly enterpreted the Constitution.

    It it was a tax, then the court should have rejected the case and said come back when the tax goes into effect, right?

    The administration and the democrats denied it was a tax. They denied it vehemently. They said in no uncertain terms it was not a tax. The statute does not call it a tax.
    Roberts had to rewrite the statute to call it a tax before allowing it.
    That is no way to run a court.

    1) Good for you.

    2) Your opinion is overly alarmist.

    you have earned the respect of Dante.

    Obama's Solicitor General and others insisted they get to argue it as a tax. So bwahahaha!


    How they argued it is a matter of legal strategy. No one lied.

    None of the justices or the congress are impacted by this law because the have passed their own plan. This is congress and the SC saying screw you, you don't count. Next case please.

    Ask the judges. I'm just saying that upholding it was the correct interpretation of the Constitution, and that the damage was done 3 1/2 years ago. The blame for this terrible bill lies with the voters and not the SCOTUS.
