    And I must say, it is amazing that John Roberts, who was GWB's nominee and the Chief Justice, is the one who made the deciding vote. Fun times we live in.

    No, but GWB did just pass Obama's health care bill. Thanks Dubya!

    or at a minimum, let folks buy into Medicare. It would make it more solvent.....as many folks who buy health insurance rarely use it.

    I hope so too YS. I have always expected that the ACA would be refined. This ruling provides the opportunity to do so. Now, if only they will take it and go that route.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Public opinion of the health care law

    June 28, 2012 10:36 AM

    Since it was enacted over two years ago, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, President Obama's signature piece of legislation, has never been especially popular with the American public. Just 34 percent approve of the health care law, according to a CBS News/New York Times Poll released earlier this month, while 48 percent disapprove. Other recent polls also show more oppose the law than support it.

    Overall opinions of the health care law have barely wavered since its passage in March 2010, and support for it has never reached 50 percent in CBS News Polls. Back in May 2010, two months after it was passed, 43 percent of Americans approved of the law - that's the highest percentage to date.

    Public opinion of the health care law - CBS News
    Add to that $5 trillion in new debt, stagnant economy and over 1 million filing new jobless claims per month vs 169,000 new jobs an what do you get?

    I can see you are unfamiliar with the health care bill. Folks making more than 133% of the Federal Poverty Level and you pay for insurance or pay the $600 a year tax. A single person making over $14,856 would have to pay for insurance (on $14,856, really?) or $600 tax. A married couple with no kids making over $20,122 a year would be required to pay for insurance for 2 or the tax for 2. A family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids making over $30,656 a year would have to buy insurance for 4 or pay double the tax for the adults. I'm sure all of them will think this is a really good idea when they vote in November.

    Why, this is his plan. He has just been trying to appease to get elected.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No, it never happens because of one thing, but preponderance of things. This attitude that people owe other people their property will be the undoing of this country. You may actually see that day. This rulling today was another large chunk axed out of the tree of liberty.
