    Again, you advocate for it....but you don't want that....you don't want fed health care.

    If you want to expand this coverage to people above the income limits of the program.....GREAT. But you don't......so why bring it up?

    You show yourself again. You think just like any other thug holding people up and taking their wealth. It is sort of sad.
    In addition to every other error you don't even get our history right. Have a nice day.

    Did you not read the Bible?

    Seems I was wrong.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Depends on you mean by that. He would likely have us (believers) give to the common good, to help others.

    First he told me the wonderful HC bill was going to help the "poorest of the poor", now he's realized these folks will stay on Medicare. It took me a while but he finally said the poorest of the poor weren't gonna get anything from this bill. They'll still be on the govt dole.

    Where should the poorest of the poor be?

    That aside, what this decision does is to make a new right for the federal government to tax private transactional inactivity.
    Article 1, section 8: "Section. 8. The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises"

    Federalist papers where 1 or 2 guys opinion, not the law. Constitution = law.
