"Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to Improve Health Insurance Markets, not Destroy them...if at all possible, we must interpret the Act in a way that is consistent with the Former, and avoids the Latter" ~ 6/25/2016
With those words John Roberts just destroyed the last vestige of the Republican myth on the evils of Obamacare...also, it 'is' a Human Right for everyone to have Healthcare! Sometimes, some things are better left alone...the continuous annoyance in the justice system with technicalities, sooner or later, the argument will naturally wonder beyond the substance of laws written by imperfect human beings, and into the Morality and the Virtue of the Argument.
The argument itself was self-defeating brief by a Political Party bent on committing Mass Political Suicide. Winning their case would've left over 8 million people in their own States without Health Insurance or medical care whatsoever!! 8 million more pissed off people, who along with the over 50 million pissed off Hispanics, 45 million pissed off Blacks, 143 million very pissed off Women, and millions of Gays pissed by Republican persecution...and yes, they all will show their displeasure in the ballot box!!
Adalia Woodbury brilliantly stated in her PoliticusUSA 'Headline' on the very same subject, what some of us been privately thinking: "Supreme Court Saves Republicans From Themselves by Upholding the Affordable Care Act". My question; Can the Republicans save themselves 'without' their friends in the High Court guiding them out of the mess they got themselves into?? Great talking point, Adalia!
Wake up and smell the Coffee! Mr. Boehner!...your blind ambition of keeping the Speaker's Chair over any circumstance, and going to bed with who ever it takes!...just shows what an asshole you really are, and how you are going to be perceived in History long after you're gone! Nice legacy for your family to be proud of!
A foolish political statement from a man consumed in the hatred of being a complete loser in every battle, while in his leadership position...versus the President of the United States: "Obamacare is fundamentally broken ...today's ruling doesn't change that fact...Republicans will continue to listen to American Families and work to Protect them from the consequences of Obamacare."
Dear John! Do you realize no one is listening to you?? you don't even have to call anyone to find out...you're the only person who doesn't know! Sorry Pal! We, the People really 'do' like Obamacare!
The fact: The lawsuit was just a ploy by big money to exhaust every avenue of Legal Technicality to destroy the Affordable Care Act. The people who would've suffered the most are all in Red States...and they have no saying in the matter! At the end, any concern for the residents of these states who could've lost everything? Not from the GOP! The Federal Govt has always been there to help...those 8 million wouldn't have had to worry if their "Elected" officials would've decided not to opt out, just because of their hatred for Obama!
It's all Bigotry and Conservative Religious Social Ignorance...even if you hate Obama for who he is and the color of his skin...when you're down and out and sick, you're going to love anything or anyone that helps you!...that's the fact, Jack!
Enter the ever growing cast of Clowns into this Judicial scenario!...Batshit has to show up, sooner or later!!
Baby Bush: "This decision is not the end of the fight against Obamacare". Marco Rubio: “Despite the Court’s decision, Obamacare is still a bad law that is having a negative impact on our country and on millions of Americans". Scott Walker: To Republicans; "Redouble the efforts to Repeal the Law!". And last!...but not least! the ever present Ted Cruz: "For the second time in just a few years, a "handful" of 'Unelected Judges' has rewritten the Text of Obamacare in order to 'Impose' this Failed Law on Millions of Americans". Yes! even batshit floats to the top!
The Mass Political Suicide of the Grand Old Party...no Cool-Aid needed. Why use Cool-Aid when you have such an overabundance of 'Tea'??
What John Roberts and Company did was pretty much, put an end to the rulings on Obamacare. The only way left would be by an Act of Congress...and then, find a President that will sign it!! Landmark Congressional Acts throughout our country's history tend to be what today's cliche parlance calls; "Too Big to Fail or Break"...you can fix the problems, but the people and/or the courts, will not let you break it up or take it away! Like John Boehner, the Republican Party just doesn't get it!!
And after their Great Clown Exhibition of 2016...they'll still be the only ones that won't get it, why they lost?!?! , The Affordable Care Act is here to stay, so to those who don't like it? Suck it up, and live with it!...it's not going to change and it's not going anywhere!
