To everyone that thought the SCOTUS wasnt as corrupted as the rest of the politicians, you can officially kiss my ass.

Good bye single payer. Hello fascist rule. Forced purchased from one of the big three (energy, health, money....or Oil, Insurance and Banks).

This is a horrendous step in the wrong direction. The cartel is strengthened, and we will NEVER see single payer.

And to all you clones that think this BS is a good thing, time will prove you wrong, just like it always does.

I wish you were wrong, but the ACA, though originally well-intentioned, is nothing more than mandatory health insurance with no way to control insurance premiums, benefits paid, or coverage for those, who most need it but don't pay taxes let alone health-insurance premiums.

If we had all had government insurance (such as medicare) and they put it in the hands of a middleman like the insurance companies we would be screaming about privatization of the system - it's only that we did not have universal coverage first that everyone somehow thinks this is a solution to the health care crisis. This is a tax we can not control - why was that not argued within the court - ? A tax not determined by the government but by a private corporation for their own gain...

The decision was not split along ideological lines. Obamacare was upheld by a Republican Supreme Court justice who was appointed by Bush.

SCOTUS/POTUS/Congress.....silly letters at the end of names means nothing when deciding to sell out for big money.

What brings you to the conclusion that the court "sold out"?

[-] 1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

The fact that they always side with the big money.

Three parties run DC- energy/health/money or Oil/Ins/Banks.

What they want, they get.

Of course it was, the individual mandate was a Republican idea all along. The insurance companies had trouble selling it to the masses before, so they hired the black guy to push it. Now all of a sudden the other half of the country thinks it's a great idea lol

Fascinating theory. And so I guess the Republicans shot Trayvon also? It was John Boehner, from behind the grassy knoll?

Based solely on a calculation of income level, yes, Zimmerman is likely a Republican.

I'm sure you were either stoned during the early '90s or not paying attention, but yes, the individual mandate was an idea started by the Repukes. It's called "google", it's useful for this stuff.

I knew the decision would go this way this supreme court has been stacked by corporate backers. Wasn't a stretch to imagine them wetting themselves over a precedent that will determine fines "or tax" on anything they might think we should be buying...just where will it end? Your house needs new windows a fine each year for your wastefulness. Your car isn't as safe as a brand new one, a fine each year until you buy a new car. Your diet doesn't contain enough meat, a fine until you're getting your appropriate portion. You don't have a new i-phone and your child's teacher may want to contact you, a fine until you have an appropriate communication device. Your lawn has too many pests, a fine until you cover it with the appropriate pesticide...I could go on and on - but you get the idea... this precedent is dangerous, it is the beginning of the end.

Its an total disaster. Its the worst case scenario of what "reform" would ever be.

I thought the SC would go this way. At this point we should know how democrats and republicans go about their business. Dems wait to see who's taken hostage and they give up everything to get them released. I never thought dems would embrace the idea that liberals aren't willing to fight for what they believe in. You're right, this is the end of single payer and it's sickening to listen to some that say this decision is a step towards single payer. Like hell it is.

The liberals that are fooled into this shit are the same ones that dont want to talk about bombing 6 nations in three years.

Shame on them all. Shame on them for allowing their party to become corporate monsters.

If this additional tax on the middle class doesn't piss you off; then you'll really love the bush tax cut extension coming this Dec. in another lame duck session.
