The Day the Constitution Died: Obamacare Upheld in Full

Just as Pelosi predicted months ago with her inside information from Justice Kagan, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the courts liberals judges in ruling the mandate in Obamacare is constitutional as a tax.  The court also upheld the medicaid provisions of the act.  Thanks to the vote of a Bush appointee to the Supreme Court, it will now be constitutional for the federal government to force Americans to buy anything under the guise of a tax.

George W. Bush, the gift that keeps on giving.

So now the republicans will run on a platform that begs Americans to elect them so that they can repeal this? Wrong, I bet pesos to dollars that the republicans will never touch this even if they were to capture all levers of government. Heck, even if they still control the House, I doubt they'd use their power of the purse to sabotage it.

I really so no point in maintaining the charade of this country anymore. I really hope the USA breaks apart into 4 or more smaller nations. My model is not the violent breakup of Yugoslavia, but rather the peaceful divorce of Czechoslovakia.

It's funny how Bush is to blame when it is entitled obamacare. Hmm, think about that.

Bush appointed Roberts, who was the deciding vote on this bill and on sb 1070. Bush's spending and executive overreaches is what directly led to the rejection of the republican party in 2006 and again in 2008, which gave us Obama and a Democrat controlled congress.

But, hey, it's called obamacare so let's forget everything that led up to. What is it they say about those who fail to learn from history?

This is true, a people who forego lessons learned are a people who perish through the actions of others. This being said, to force on a people that is suppose to ultimately control it's country and be heard by it's people. Fingers are not being pointed at who is wrong nor who is right, just the fact of by the people and for the people.
