Huge Day in The Supreme Court

Today marks perhaps the most important day in the ObamaCare Supreme Court case as justices hear arguments concerning the law’s insurance mandate.

Today marks perhaps the most important day in the ObamaCare Supreme Court case as justices hear arguments concerning the law’s insurance mandate.

Requiring that citizens purchase a product they may or may not want isn’t just an unnecessary burden—it’s unconstitutional.

You see, ObamaCare doesn’t just further bankrupt our nation, raise taxes and deny millions of Americans access to affordable insurance—it flies directly in the face of our Constitution.

As such, I am confident that the Supreme Court will see the president’s multi-trillion dollar takeover of our health care system for what it really is—an affront to our Constitution and an attack on our freedoms.

I look forward to the day when ObamaCare is either struck down in the court or repealed by legislators who have the courage and conviction to do what’s right for our country so that we can achieve free-market, patient-first solutions that lower costs and improve care

@Lyle Yes, my generation cannot be trusted to uphold a contract we have no say in and has been perverted multiple times between its inception and our arrival on this planet.

@Randy Same excuse as Lyle, the system sucks, you had to do it; therefore, everyone should. I am not expecting SS to pay me anything. That money that has been taken from me is gone. My generation understand and accepts that. You two got to play the big government nanny state your whole lives. I refuse to play that game and will make every attempt possible to change it. Not because I feel you don't deserve to get your money back, but because it is an archaic system that takes freedoms from me. You guys had many more years then I to change the system to something better and did nothing. Lyle claims we just need to wait till your dead and then everything will be better. I am not that patient.

@Cowdung, you hit the nail on the head. There are parts I like but those could have been implemented without this draconian measure. There was no reason they couldn't have had the insurance exchanges before. I like that the lifetime limit has been removed. And we still don't know what all is in the legislation and what rules have to be written yet. How is an individual who can't afford to pay for unaffordable health insurance going to have the money to pay the fine? Are they going to be thrown in prison? "It's a bit late for that now, isn't it? Perhaps if Obama hadn't pushed it through so quickly, we'd have something worth having..."

@mau -- The bill was pushed through quickly? It was actually debated and amended in the Congress from summer until December.
CowDung March 30, 2012 at 02:18 AM
It seemed to me that they were writing it as they were calling for votes on it. It was pretty clear that nobody knew what the final form of the bill would be until shortly before the vote. It wasn't even complete enough to post online prior to the vote (as Obama's 'transparency' policy required it to be).
