It is unbelievable to me that the sitting president and elected officials in congress spend nearly two years on crafting legislation that will greatly benefit the American public. Crafting a law that at every single turn a radical minority fights its passage. Crafting a law that many in the liberal community decries as "not liberal enough", crafting a law that is ABSOLUTELY constitutional! And finally passes it, and pays a huge price in the ballot box , but non the less, the right thing was done and those who spent two years of blood sweat and tears were able to go home with their heads held high knowing that they accomplished something that in the long run would greatly benefit America and it's citizens.
Then two years later a group of five old men wearing black robes tell the American people that, "ya, we voted that corporations are people, we voted to allow George W. Bush to steal the 2000 election, but we won't allow you American citizens to get quality, affordable health care on the basis of a rigid constitutional argument that requiring citizens to get health care is unconstitutional, so ya, fuck you America!"
By every account I have heard, the five conservative justices were extremely assertive in their questioning this week of the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act, and then yesterday the five justices were even going as a far as saying that the whole law should be struck down. Pretty much saying that they will go ahead and legislate from the bench.
If this law is struck down kiss any form of health care reform goodbye for years to come. Nobody will touch this again, mark my words. If Obama and a super majority of democrats couldn't pass it, no one will. This stupid talk I'm hearing from liberals of,"well, this will unify the base and we'll elect a super-duper majority this election and enact single payer health care reform" is UTTERLY, UTTERLY, UTTERLY, UTTERLY STUPID, RIDICULOUS, MORONIC, NAIVE, GULLIBLE, AND ASININE!
Welcome America! To an age where the legislative branch no longer functions, the executive branch no longer matters, and the judicial branch is ruler of the land. I hope we're all happy.
