Obamacare Stands - Long Live the Empire

The Ruling of the Century! comes down -
The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld virtually all of President Barack Obama's historic health care overhaul, including the hotly debated core requirement that nearly every American have health insurance.

The 5-4 decision meant the huge overhaul, still taking effect, could proceed and pick up momentum over the next several years, affecting the way that countless Americans receive and pay for their personal medical care.
Really? And who gave us this lovely decision?
Breaking with the court's other conservative justices, Chief Justice John Roberts announced the judgment that allows the law to go forward with its aim of covering more than 30 million uninsured Americans. Roberts explained at length the court's view of the mandate as a valid exercise of Congress' authority to "lay and collect taxes." The administration estimates that roughly 4 million people will pay the penalty rather than buy insurance.

Even though Congress called it a penalty, not a tax, Roberts said, "The payment is collected solely by the IRS through the normal means of taxation."
Noooo....Roberts stabbed the Republicans in the back? Who could have possibly seen that coming in 2005?!?
Look for Roberts to hold a conservative line for a while, disarming most arguments against his nomination. Then when key arguments come to SCOTUS, I believe he will suddenly become a Sandra Day and hand us over to the globalists.
What is deliciously ironic about this entire situation is that the purported destruction of liberty comes at the hands of the assuredly conservative man who was nominated by our last conservative president in the previous most important election evah! Proving that learning is not an option, conservatives are now doubling down to overturn this gross injustice in the newest most important election evah! by demanding the election of a new assuredly conservative individual that authored the precursor to the aforementioned destruction of liberty.

Seriously Republicans, you need to take those silly little partisan blinders off and realize that you are being played for chumps here.

Republicans waste little time in proving they are some of the most gullible out there -
Mitt Romney's presidential campaign has raised $4.6 million since the Supreme Court ruled that President Obama's healthcare law is constitutional.

Romney started raising funds immediately after the decision, and in a message to supporters Friday morning his campaign spokeswoman said he had raised $4.6 million from 47,000 donations.
Let me 'splain this very sloooowly... Just like Roberts stabbed the conservatives in the back, Romney is going to do the same thing. Perhaps this fable can illustrate -
A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion says, "Because if I do, I will die too." The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has just enough time to gasp "Why?"

Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."
