    Congrats to those who wanted the mandate/ tax. The SCOTUS has spoken. I think it is sad that the US government has gained more control of it's citizens lives. I am not sure how it will affect me in the years going forward, especially of Obama wins.
    Hopefully this is all part of a grand political scheme to rid the US of Obama and his policies. That theory is all we have left.

    this bill will never be repealed, the republicans can wine all they want, but there is 0 chance they will even have enough votes. what will happen now though is states will have a greater chance of being able to opt out. this was the courts way of taking alot of the politics out of the bill. the bill stays, but the teeth of the bill has been weakened.

    What I've been hearing is he could hand out waivers to each state so they can opt out if they choose. No doubt the insurance companies will fight that tooth and nail though, and considering how many pockets they have their hands in on both sides of the aisle, they'll likely win.

    It certainly gives Romney a rallying point. As other have mentioned if Romney gets elected all he has to do is start handing out vouchers. That will influence many voters.

    That being said, to get those votes Romney now needs to make a definitive plan or alternative to Obamacare. I dont think it will be enough for him to just say "oh, ill repeal it". People are as sick of the problem as they are of the solution.

    CNN, though, was not alone in its rush to report the news.
    "Fox News was so eager to see the healthcare mandate fail they forgot to read past the 1st page of the ruling," Jason Keath wrote, pointing to a screengrab of the network's breaking news stumble.
    And late Wednesday, the Chicago Sun-Times accidentally published the shell of what their front page story would've looked like had the voted against the individual mandate.
    On Twitter, Roberts, who joined the liberal wing of the court in upholding the mandate, began trending both in the U.S. and worldwide.
    "Judging by my Twitter feed," Buzzfeed's McCay Coppins wrote, "Chief Justice Roberts is now conservative public enemy number one."
    "Roberts is the Severus Snape of the Supreme Court," Jezebel.com's Erin Gloria Ryan tweeted.
    Conservatives on Twitter expressed their outrage in tweets.
    "Obama lied to the American people. Again," former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin tweeted. "He said it wasn't a tax. Obama lies; freedom dies."
    An alarming number of Twitter users, Buzzfeed noted, declared their intent to move to Canada.
    "Don't worry," former head Onion writer Joe Garden wrote on Twitter. "Despite the health care ruling, America will still find a way to crush its poor."

    Lol, the funniest part is that so many of them have no clue what its about. I've heard so many that think its a universal federal healthcare plan like Canada's (which is amazing, BTW, so I wish it was)

    Perhaps the majority that are whining should have gotten on board with the universal plan 3 years ago.

    They're upset because they don't want the government in charge of their healthcare (though for some reason they have no problem with corporations controlling it with profit being the guiding force behind all medical decisions).
