    Yes, let the Federal Govt. implement the will of the people and not have justices legislate from the bench. If you feel so strongly about Obamacare, put it on the ballot and let the people decide. How many Republican votes did the bill get? when you are talking about financial issues of the American people you better have a bipartisan bill and not a partisan one

    I love how liberals believe democracy changes the fundamental nature of government. It's just so goddamn cute! Come here cutey and let me pinch those cheeks.

    Right, because insurance companies, and lobbyists for the hospitals and pharma companies heal so many. It is not the voters that are stupid , but such ignorant reasoning.

    Remember how it passed even when the people opposed it? Yeah, so I guess there goes the idea that democracy is about the will of the people.

    Btw, in case you don't know fourty-nine percent is still below the fifty-one percent threshold.

    Typical leftwing response. Any idea why costs are so high? How many votes do Lobbyists get on the floor of Congress? You don't think the insurance companies benefit from Obamacare? Don't you ever get tired of being lied to by the liberal elite? Maybe you ought to talk to Gruber about who really is stupid?

    The justices of the Supreme Court were nominated by the president of the United States, who is elected by electoral vote, and the presidents nominees are either confirmed or rejected by a vote in the United States senate, which is a body whose members are elected by the popular vote of the people of the states they represent.

    The federal judicial system has to be able to act as a check on the powers of both the executive and legislative branches.

    So it is the will of the justices and not the will of the people but probably only when the ruling supports your position? You seem a little conflicted here. It wasn't the will of the people that enacted Obamacare it was a socialist/liberal Democrat Party alone that did it and they lost the House and ultimately the Congress over it. I repeat. you want the will of the people on things like Obamacare, then put it on the ballot. This remains a state issue regardless of what activist justices think.

    Lol !! Wishing thinking.

    Is it ? Because if its so " popular " why did the Democrats avoid it like the plague in the 2014 Midterms ?

    Why did they get their clocks cleaned again ?

    No, its not getting more popular, and it won't get better with age. On the contrary.

    For one as the penalty for not buying some Government created product rises so will the disgust for a party who sold their Presidents signature legislation on a long list of lies and misrepresentations.

    Pay back is a bitch as they say, and by the time 2016 rolls around Democrats will be crawling over themselves to get away from the ACA and its destructive consequences.

    How bad of a candidate do you have to be to have Bernie Sanders gaining ground on you ??

    Hillary's disastrous book tour tells me she's not this big Political power house you people make her out to be. She wasn't even influential in the Mid-terms when she went out and stumped for Democrat candidates.

    Hillary has a unfortunate problem. The MORE she talks. the more public appearances she makes, the more people hate her. Her shrill voice and funny pants suit clown outfits turn people off immediately.

    Not to mention she has NOTHING to run on. No accomplishments to brag about and of-course she cant run on the successes of Obama and Obamacare.
    Yet the only candidate the GOP can put up with a ghost of a chance against her is unlikely to make it through the hustings, even if he manages to lose his last name in the process..
    Don't work out, work in.
