    Read my post again, since it is obvious you didn't, because in that post I gave Bush an A+ on judges, just like I did when he was in office. Reading is fundamental.

    This wasn't a mere nice try. This is now law. scotus just ruled it constitutional to tax people for not buying a gun. The power now exists.

    Given the amount of power corporations hold, I don't see this new power being good for the individual at all

    I'm going to disagree with this line of thinking. This isn't about race, it's about poor people getting something for nothing again.

    Turning it into one ensures your failure on the topic.
    Resentment and identity politics work in America. It's perfectly acceptable to use the same tactics as Al Sharpton.

    To be fair to Dana, the Justices he picked were one of the things he complimented Bush on whenever it comes up. He even complimented him on Alito.

    don't worry about the income tax people, this is to soak the rich! NOT!
    The penalty for not buying insurance will surely hurt the middle-class more than the wealthy. But doesn't that go against the accusation that Obama is engaging in class-warfare against the rich in favor of the middle-class?

    hmmm...

    What's amazing about this the AARP sold the seniors down river. The AARP told the seniors they were getting a deal. But they really got the shaft. Those not eating cat food now, will be soon.

    Why does it bother you to help your fellow Americans so much?

    I'm looking at a heart transplat in my future. So I was really eye balling spending caps. A 2.2 million dollar cap can be eaten up pretty quickly in that situation.
