UPHELD!

"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin

The Supreme Court just ruled that the Health Care Law is constitutional. The entire enchilada! Made my day.

Hell Yeah!

"Woot! Woot!"

I just popped the top on a Killians, and have raised it in honor of Justice Roberts...

Who woulda thunk it?

jadedj said...

squato---I for one, thunk just the opposite. Unfuckingbelievable. And Roberts totally floored me.

I am amazed, but at first I got the answer I had expected, I watched CNN who reported wrongly it was overturned, it took them 10 minutes to correct it.

The Medicade part of it will cause some states to stay out of the program, however I think they will come under pressure not to leave the sick in the streets, it will be pretty hard I think to claim the sick must suffer so they can buck Obama.

This has been one of the few times I've stayed tuned to Faux News, because watching them bob and weave to spin this thing as a win for the fundies is something to behold.

They're now saying the fact that there is no criminal penalty for failure to pay the fine for not joining in the purchase of health insurance means people can "protest" this ruling by not participating, and the fines decreed by the Affordable Care Act can't legally be collected.

Amazing day. I rarely open a beer before eleven AM, but downed one in one pull just to celebrate the moment.
Now my head hurts and I need a nap.

I might need some affordable health care if this doesn't let up...

Congrats, you Yanks!

Yellow Fringe---Yeah, CNN...the Yugo of News.

I hope you are right, I, unfortunately live in a very red state, and that is the kind of talk I am hearing.

squatlo---Whether they are right or wrong, fact is, the motherfucking insurance industry CAN NO LONGER butt fuck us with cancellations and pre-existing conditions. No doubt they will find other ways to do it, but this is still a slap on their sorry, crooked wrists.

This is a start, now to work on single payer by electing a Democratic Congress in the majority and Obama in the White House. It's not impossible.

D S W S---Thanks. I guess I'll put off my plans to move to your neck of the woods. For now, anyway ;-)

CNN is a comedy show. It should be on the comedy channel.

There IS a god.

As someone commented at my site: "Roll out the 'Impeach Justice John Roberts' bumperstickers.

jadedj said...

Ol'Buzz---It's not????

Tom---HAHAHAHAHA!

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

maybe we won't have to be holding as many benefits for people with out insurance now.

jadedj said...

YD G---Let's hope so.

Punch said...

Bill O' is working on how to let us know it is the work of commies.

jadedj said...

Punch---Is he saying that Roberts was a "sleeper" agent? Damn sneaky Ruskies!

Chimp said...

I always felt that all Americans should have easy access to medical care but I worry since the Obamacare law was written by the medical and parmaceutical industries, in fact by Romneycare!

jadedj said...

Chimp---I see it as a start to something more palatable.

Rubye Jack said...

I have to say I was totally shocked since I'd been thinking no way. It made my day also. It is a real victory for the people.

jadedj said...

Rubye Jack---It is indeed. Of course the jackals are still nipping at it's heels, but I think the majority of Americans are reading this one for what it is...right-wing election time guano.
