    The first guy to sign a mandate into law? Good plan!

    DrudgeReport also has the mandate being upheld.
    There's a little confusion from everyone.

    Fox and MSNBC hasn't shown a decision has been made at all.

    As I said CNN HAD a banner on the top saying "Mandate struck down" then they backed off and took it down.

    Looks like Roberts was the swing vote in this one.

    Go ahead and do that. There is absolutely no chance that he is telling you one thing and will act differently. One thing about Romney, when he picks a side, he never changes his mind, lol.

    It's upheld.

    Politico and Bloomberg also reporting that the mandate was upheld.

    Money quote, as reported on scotusblog:

    "Our precedent demonstrates that Congress had the power to impose the exaction in Section 5000A under the taxing power, and that Section 5000A need not be read to do more than impose a tax. This is sufficient to sustain it."
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ...

    They thought the mandate had been sturck down because of the way the decision is written. It's written as "the governement doesn't have the authority.... but since this is a tax...." and they jumped the gun.
