    I don't like how the court is full of super conservatives and liberals... I think the court can be easily corrupted.

If the gov't requires "private" insurance companies to provide $7K average annual benefits per insured, yet restricts their premiums to $7K max annually, they close their doors, as profit is then impossible. About 90% of medical insurance is now provided as an employer paid benefit, that will drop to about 70% under ObamaCare INITIALLY, but fall very fast as ALL premiums will soon rise to the gov't impossed maximum limit, causing more and more employers to drop that benefit in favor of the MUCH less expensive fine. This is VERY good for the gov't, as what was a tax free employer benefit is now paid by after tax employee money, creating a HUGE windfall in FIT and FICA tax revenues. Hmm...
    My premiums were rising a lot before health care reform. Who do I blame for that? Just like we shouldn't have bought into all the hype before the ruling, we shouldn't buy into the hype about and doomsayers about what will happen now. When will we ever elarn?

    Maybe you should substitute Roberts for Bush now.

    You know Bush had no clue about this.

    You are entitled to your opinion. To the extent your side organizes for solidarity against my side the divisions in this country will be exacerbated.

    Anyone know what the case number for this is?

    I was bashing W when bashing W wasn't cool, but I always praised him for his choice of judges. I don't believe Bush could have imagined this scenario. Not with the credentials Roberts had at the time Bush appointed him. I still give Bush a A+ on judges, despite today's ruling.

    I can't predict the future, but our increase this year was the least we've had in the last decade.

    We're not going to have another civil war. It's 2012, not the 1860s. Good luck getting Cons/Libs to actually go at it.
