    I realized I would end up paying for some lazy ass lib's ****, especially around Chicago.....basically comes down to the Repubs having no leadership and the balls to do what needed to be done.

    Now the Demos should expect the same thing going forward.....be the minority party and have **** rammed down their throats. No matter the consequences.

The dissent is right, the meaning of words and the purpose of the courts has been removed for politics. Intention does matter, but the argument for the intention directly conflicts with the ACA wording. In multiple places, you cannot discount that.

    And I did read all of the decision, and all of the dissent.
    I think yours is a very even-handed fairly worded opinion.

    Without going into the politics of the ruling, you are absolutely right in that Congress can act as they see fit in regards to the ACA. One Congress enacted it - another can Amend or even repeal it.

    But I personally think it's starting to get so far-along-the-way, that it's likely here to stay (due to political & legislative reality).

    That's fine. But the 17% is integrally related to the 83%. For every business in that 83%, access to and affordability of healthcare is a major, major operational issue. Small startups especially.

    I had a very savvy Grammar School teacher, a Polish nun that lived through the Third Reich and later immigrated to America - and at a very young age, in our U.S. history class, she beat into our heads that the most import legacy of a U.S. President is his Supreme Court nominations.

    It took me until adulthood to realize just how right she was.

    Heya Chomsky. Well.....we don't have to let Roberts walk around in public and his life can be made difficult for him. Like he has done so for millions of others.

    Do you think things can be made so difficult for him and his family that he would resign willingly?

    Gallup is, to my knowledge, the only source for regular updates on the uninsured rate, and they didn't start this survey until 2008. I just looked for graphs going back further and didn't find any. You're welcome to find another source, though!

    Congratulations!

    After two years of conflict and divisiveness based on the lie of the century, you now have, according to that, slightly less than 45 million people without coverage.

    30% more than the population of Canada, all of whom have coverage.

    I recall when the debate started, Obama claiming there were 35 million uninsured. What happened?

    I have to agree. The mess Democrats made covers lots of ground. However, the are many things within the 83% of the economy Democrats ignored that are more important than Obamacare.

    Broadening the tax base by improving the economics of the economy is vital. I'm pushing for that effort, rather than getting Democrats off the hook for their Obamacare mess.
