    calling for the destruction of the SCOTUS, simply because they make findings you hate, is kind of unAmerican.
    Yet calling what income is spent on (especially what it is NOT spent on) a constituional basis for allowing the 16th amnedment to collect FINES or PENALTIES is not constitutional, no matter what chief justice Roberts, or any other judge says. PPACA never mentioned its relationship to income taxation, OTHER than to say that fines/penaties would be collected by IRS for employers NOT offering medical care insurance and employees NOT purchasing it OR being covered under another's policy. That is WAY beyond anything even remotely mentioned in the constitution or its many amendments.

    Quite a leap in logic there.

    Off the cliff you go.

    Ahem there were 5 dissenters for a host of reasons.

    And I called for them to actually do their jobs, not be destroyed.

    This has nothing to do with like or not like. They are following the constitution or they are not.

    In this case with 238 years of examples to pull from One guy has to pull it from under his robe to settle the score.

    Even the people that agreed with him do not agree on how he did it. Read the analysis.

    The poll seems pretty consistent.
    Thank you

    If these judges actually did their job impartially then why are a lot of decisions based on political beliefs? Why do parties fight tooth and nail to get their guy or gal to be supreme court judge while the opposing party fights tooth and nail to keep the president's guy form getting nominated?


    calling for the destruction of the SCOTUS, simply because they make findings you hate, is kind of unAmerican.
    Calling for blatant infringements on constitutional rights that say shall not infringe is un-American but you seem to have no problem advocating for those infringements.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    If we do away with SCOTUS we may as well just do away with Republicanism and take up a parliamentary government instead.

    i see no evidence that a lot of decisions are based on political beliefs.

    just an interpretation of the Constitution that is held by many folks of one side of our political spectrum.

    We don't need to get rid of the SCOTUS now anymore than we did when Citizen's United had people up in arms (Guess they aren't included in that "Some" group of people)

    The case that is being referenced whenever you've heard people talking about "Corporations are People"
