    Not so much a traitor as one of the biggest flip-floppers in political history.

    Re: Is Romney a traitor?

    Can you clarify what that means? Its a very short question.

    I think hes a very squirelly decision maker. He tends to bounce back and forth like a tennis ball.

    Kinda like the pres. There is no tax. This isnt a tax. Wait a min its good because..It IS a tax..yay...

    All very shady.
    Thank you

    While he is clearly the enemy of the majority of the American people and does NOT have their interests or welfare at heart, he is not a traitor to the USA. There is a difference.

    It will take a constitutional amendment to overturn.
    I don't think the Romney-Bot a taitor, just not very clear on what a civilian can do.

    Because it is considered a tax it will only take 50 republican senators sticking together to repeal Obamacare. If Romney wins, they hold the house, and pick up 3 senate seats it's history. Remember the dems have 23 senate seats to defend so it's very possible the law's repealed before it's implemented.
    ************************************************** *************************************************
    Repealing the law won't happen before January 2013. It would be dependent on a triple Republican victory this November: Mitt Romney would need to defeat President Barack Obama, Republicans must hold their majority in the House, and they must also gain enough seats in the Senate so they have at least 50 of their own in the upper chamber.

    What about the filibuster? Don't you need 60 votes to do anything in the Senate?

    Not in this case. Because Chief Justice John Roberts' majority opinion ruled the individual mandate a "tax," a Republican-led Senate could repeal that provision--and others--using what is called "budget reconciliation," a procedural tactic that requires only a simple majority vote. The Republican vice president, in this hypothetical scenario, would break the tie. (Democrats used the same method in 2010 to pass the health care bill

    Re: Is Romney a traitor?

    Learn a little history and come on back and we'll discuss this "traitor" BS. Start by taking a look at Madison v Marbury and Jefferson's reaction to the decision. The president has the ability to block many of the provisions (or rather their implementation) administratively. But mostly what the POTUS does when he feels the court has gone off the rails is to incentivize the congress to change the bill and take it out of the court's hands.

    With a majority of the people against the mandate, should be easy to get support for the striking of that provision legislatively. Won't require a constitutional amendment, that's just silly.
