    Haha. I marched in the local Gay Pride Parade on June 3rd in support of LGBTQ people. I am hardly a pitchfork type. What I am is someone who obeys the rules of the political culture in order to achieve political advantage. That's as American as apple pie.

    Re: SCOTUS LIVEBLOG - Obamacare Mandate Survives [W:125]

    ... not really surprised by the decision... i figured it would go the other way on the mandate, but meh, i'm not surprised...SCOTUS tends to be perfectly fine with growing government.

    what does surprise me is the left's new found love and adoration for corporations...specifically health insurance corporations (of which there are precious few)



    this is a pretty solid victory for Obama and the left.... in a number of ways.
    they get healthcare coverage for a lot of Americans
    they get a new tax
    they get a substantial tax increase for the rich.
    they get mandated mediocrity ( socialist will love that one)
    and now the " we can force you to do whatever we want" argument gets a ton stronger ( authoritarians will love this one in particular)


    overall, i'm not happy.... but other than having to look for new and exciting ways to lower my tax burden( what?, you thin people are just gonna take a substantial tax increase laying down?.. think again), it won't affect me much.

    Except for Obama in '09 on Snufelupogus' show.

    "We?" Let's not pretend that America is anything other than a zero sum game. There is no "we" any more.

    Which means the middle class, by and large, is insured. This makes your logic fall apart. Note also that employer provided insurance is not the only insurance.

    Which 2/3? and What of the lower class?
