I am honestly shocked if this is true.

Even as a lawyer, I thought this was a political trap. Wow.

Explain...

mandate survives as a tax. still reviewing it . fed power to terminate medicaid funds is narrowly read.

Tom: The bottom line: the entire ACA is upheld, with the exception that the federal government's power to terminate states' Medicaid funds is narrowly read.

I don't know why you all are saying that the individual mandate is "left" when it was a Republican idea first.

Well, I will be paying the penalty and save the rest of the money I would have spent in premiums in a saving account for health. In September, I'll only have 4 more years to go til Medicare.

I was cynical as well that the "conservative judges" would rule unconstitutional and the "liberals" constitutional. I just didnt think anyone on either side could rise above their political appointments.

I have to say I have a sense of pride in the law right now.

And when Obama wins re-election and the House and Senate are firmly in the Democrat camp, we'll get single payer done. Hopefully it's non-profit and premiums are based on income sliding scale.

No one is going to touch health care reform with a ten foot pole for the next 20 years.

Anyway, the decision is done, and the liberals with a spectacular victory here in the shootout! What a game we've seen here today, Macca.

CNN looks like idiots

yeah. ignore them for breaking news, they always get it wrong in the moment. (this not a commentary on their news reporting in general -- they just seem the worst of all possible outlets when it comes to by-the-second coverage)

Now it says:

"Correction: The Supreme Court backs all parts of President Obama’s signature health care law."

It sounds like they called the fine a tax, which it obviously is. What's really awesome about this is that the US Attorney argued it was not a tax. That was the dumbest decision the Obama administration has made in 3.5 years. But Roberts bailed him out. Sounds like Kennedy even went with the conservatives.

I thought the mandate was going to be struck down. Looks like Justice Roberts did the right thing.
