    Re: SCOTUS LIVEBLOG - Obamacare Mandate Survives [W:125]

    Are there any liberals who would like to do a victory dance with me? I think it's necessary. We've had a rough year guys. I for one was pretty annoyed by all the legal challenges brought up - now that SCOTUS has spoken on the matter, we can all dance, be merry and drink.

    First round's on me!

    TO THE TAVERN!!!

    Hey Iím all for it .. . Now the poor get their medical free, they never pay a doctor or a hospital bill. Now at the very least they will pay the 900 fine for not having insurance Ö. Better to get something then nothing from them.

    But I canít help to wonder how the poor Obama supporters are going to view this, at the very least itís now 900 out of their pockets. Not sure that will go over big on election day.

    Moderator's Warning:
    SCOTUS LIVEBLOG - Obamacare Mandate Survives [W:125, 384, 635, 652, 758, 1205]The topic of this thread is not race, the race card, or identity politics.

    If you want to speak about your views in terms of the ramification of this ruling in terms of its affect on races, that's one thing. However, broader conversations regarding race need to end as it's veering off topic

    It can have whatever it wants. It's constitutional. We don't go by popular opinion. Comprende?

    Temporary waivers that can be issued over and over. Which is kind of the point. Taxation should be allowed to be "waived" even temporarily. Using waivers as a device to shore up political support or as political favors is my contention. You cant shield one set of people and not the rest. I think this or the religious objections regarding abortion etc will be the next portion of this law before SCOTUS.
