    Big victory for the African American Underclass. Huge defeat for the White Middle Class. The former group moves up the food chain and the latter group moves down the food chain.
    Fine, you're not a racist, but your ideas are.

    "Growing up" - you should try it. Deal with it.

    Hazlnut was asserting that pro-mandate was the conservative position. not the Constitutional one. the Court may have held the tax as Constitutional, that doesn't make it the "conservative" position.

    But I do find it entertaining that had Roberts decided differently you would have accused him of "sucking up to the GOP".

    you refuse to recognize that the white, hispanic, asian, Native American underclass will also benefit from the availability of health care
