Thoughts on Obamacare ruling?

Unread postby FUDU » Fri Jun 29, 2012 3:23 pm

Too lazy to dig up old thread.

Great for America?

Meh, SSDD.

Over reach and nothing but a power grab for the gooberment?

Short term win for Obama, but possibly long term problem for him in November?

Some political analysts hint that Roberts might have upheld this thinking/knowing the backlash could turn the election to the pubes...

I don't know how it could hurt him come November. It's basically a ripoff of RomneyCare.

Obama is going to beat Mittens over the head with it during the debates.

Should have just had the public option and be done with it. I still pay for people who can't now.

The whole thing about it being a tax now, any candidate would be stupid as fuck not to run with that. Especially seeing as how dumb and irrational so much of the voting block is, or would that be are.

Single payer is great in theory horrible in practice like all communism.

Medicaid and Medicare are perfect examples.

Another huge expansion of the welfare state - all under the blanket of "tax" when, at it's core, it's simply another entitlement program the country cannot afford. Welcome to Social Security II. DC cannot make you eat your vegatables but can levy a tax if you don't. Do all Americans deserve health care? Yes. Was this the way to do it? No.

BTW, just because it's constitutional does not make it a good law. Most of the celebrants are ignoring the fact that the "poison pill" provision was struck down - states can opt out and not be penalized. Good luck with that.

The SCOTUS is made up of lawyers that are politicians. Think about it.


Their minds are made up ahead of time based on politics and they find arcane precedents to support their agendas.

The only remotely interesting outcome is what in Roberts thinking? I find his parsing utterly fascinating.

And all the hysterical retards who think this is some sea change impacting their lives have either Hannity's or Shultz posters in their rooms.

It doesn't matter. None of this matters. We paid the unpaid bills before, so now we're still doing it.

If my taxes have to go so sick people can go to the doctor, so be it.

I'm lucky, I have great health care.

This means nothing for 90% of us.

The only ones getting the short straw are those over 200K. They won't feel the extra tax anyway. Just donate some $ to a charity to break even.

Erie most reports have projected the middle class will carry these costs (as usual), so how do you see the 200K crowd being the ones as screwed over....you don't think 200K is middle class (as Obama and McCain do)?

What the 200K crowd might have to fork over is nothing more than some disposable income, sympathy for that crowd in regards to this bill simply won't exist.
