    I've been reading a very detailed history of far-right extremism and racism, the word "communist" has long been associated with civil rights and equality. The protestors in the south shouted, "Go back to Cuba, Nigger lovers."

    The code words, "communist", "Marxist" are about race and those who are not comfortable with blacks being equal to whites.

    Politics and partisanship are one thing, however the extreme obstructionism in the House and Senate comes from a deeper, darker place--IMO. The tea drinking right has refused to do the work they were hired to do. It's time to put them on notice and replace them with people willing to roll up their sleeves and work.

    True. Deal with it.
    There isn't much I can say to respond to your post because it doesn't contain an explanation for its conclusions.

    Honestly, the race baiting accomplishes nothing except but make me want post a pic that says "I'm not with stupid".

    In reading the opinion, I have to note that Chief Justice Roberts voted in a fashion that is wholly consistent with the position he articulated about the role of the Judiciary during his confirmation hearings for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Indeed, the closing paragraph of his opinion echoes his vision of the Judicial Branch's role during confirmation hearings. In the closing paragraph of his opinion, he stated:

    The Affordable Care Act’s requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax. Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness.

    In part, he told the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearings:

    It means an appreciation that the role of the judge is limited; the judge is to decide the cases before them; they're not to legislate; they're not to execute the laws...

    I think that general approach results in a modest approach to judging which is good for the legal system as a whole. I don't think the courts should have a dominant role in society and stressing society's problems.

    It is their job to say what the law is.
    That's what Chief Justice Marshall said, of course, in Marbury v. Madison.

    And, yes, there will be times when either the executive branch or the legislative branch exceeds the limits of their powers under the Constitution or transgresses one of provisions of the Bill of Rights. Then it is emphatically the obligation of the courts to step up and say what the Constitution provides, and to strike down either unconstitutional legislation or unconstitutional executive action

    But the court has to appreciate that the reason they have that authority is because they are interpreting the law. They are not making policy.

    And to the extent they go beyond their confined limits and make policy or execute the law, they lose their legitimacy.

    Political speech often hurts because it is intended to act as a catalyst for political action. It is perfectly acceptable to tell those who are injured by federal action that they have been injured in order to help another group. Politics is rough edged.

    You don't get to flip the script.
    The greedy are those who want everybody to pay for them to receive.

    The ones you are talking about, are just fine supporting themselves.

    yes White America is now in shackles and the minorities rule the Republic! Chief justice Roberts is a Caucasoid Quisling!

    I would have said white seniors are already covered 7 ways come Tuesday, I remember a distraught white senior demanding the government get out of her life, but they had better not touch her social security or medicare!

    I would think a better trolling rant, and I do believe Albert is just as guilty of baiting/trolling/inflaming as anyone else is of violating TOS, is it is a bad day for white young America. No matter what the white seniors have political clout.

    AARP is the new Overlord......

    So these "whites" with their insurance are being ruined? I doubt it. These whites should be treated better but it's not about being treated equally? Really?
    Everyone is concerned about the impact of Obamacare on his or her own health care. People who have good health care will now have health care which isn't so good on a quality basis. They will resent that. They can be organized politically on the basis of that resentment.
