    Thumbs down SCOTUS LIVEBLOG - Obamacare Mandate Survives [W:125, 384, 635, 652, 758, 1205]

    covering it live on the blog. mods- not sure if this is the best venue, but it was "breaking"

    Also, the Stolen Valor Act was declared to be in violation of the First Amendment, so any of you who are fake war heroes can go on telling people how you were a Green Beret Seal who won the Medal of Honor.



    Damn. Damn Damn Damn. Apparently they bought that it was a tax, Roberts has sided with the left of the Court.


    the Medicaid expansion was "limited but not invalidated"





    Seriously, you gotta be F'ing kidding me. Obama spent a year and a half swearing up and down that this wasn't a tax, Congressional leadership following in suit.

    Edit: I don't understand how we're getting two opposite breaking news items. Which is accurate?

    NBC just said that it was upheld. Somebody's getting fired.

    Wait, remind me who said the mandate was constitutional because it was the same thing as a tax?

    Oh yeah, it was me!

    Looks like the law has been upheld almost in its entirety, though they apparently limited the fed's ability to terminate states' Medicaid funds.

    CNN screwed the pooch big time.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    My understanding is that it was redefined as a tax, but it is completely upheld. Medicaid expansion is limited, not sure in which ways.

    CNN and MSNBC got it wrong.

    What country would that be? Not my country...perhaps your country.
