I think the way to deal with Obamacare is to overwhelm it with increased costs for the federal govt. through states opting out. That forces the federal govt. to step in and the federal budget skyrockets.
Maybe it would have been a better idea for President Obama to have proceeded incrementally.
Did you know that Chief Justice Roberts only agreed with the decision because Obama threatened his children?
How could John Roberts side with the liberals? The individual mandate is so clearly unconstitutional – even to a layperson – how could it be?
Kind of like a Vince Flynn book. Someone got to Roberts. I bet they got to him and told him he has to vote this way or members of his family – kids, wife, parents, whoever – were going to be killed.
Later this afternoon, it’s going to come out that Roberts was coerced. A Secret Service agent overheard Obama and Axelrod discussing the Roberts blackmail. He managed to get them on tape discussing it. Later this afternoon, the whole story will come out, Roberts will issue his REAL opinion, and Obama and Axelrod will be taken away in handcuffs.
“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

I think Obamacare is just the beginning of the transformation of America.
Facts are facts. I'm sorry it hurts your feelings that people are exposing the truth about this fraud of a bill that rammed down the throats of the American Public against their will with shady reconciliation tactics. Next you'll be whining that Obamacare is about "Free HC for all" or some other such emotional nonsense.
Obamacare is filled with 20 new taxes. It wasn't sold as a massive tax increase. You support passing legislation through deception? It's a bloated Big Government mess that is an absolute disaster. I love how hope and change junkies like you are trying to have the debate again that Obamacare is "deficit neutral", not filled with massive tax increases on the poor and middle class, and isn't a massive grab for more Centralized Power. You lost that debate back in 2010.
Are you claiming that any source you use is going to be unbiased? Let's stop with the pretentious nonsense. You've been bleeting Ezra Klein and Daily Kos talking points all week.

Not surprising to see a Socialist approve of thuggery and intimidation tactics in order to get their way politically.
"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."
-- Adam Smith
