  2. Yup. A win for the Democrats, just like Pearl Harbor was a win for the Japanese.

    • I had the same thought. The dems had also better be thinking of Admiral Yamotos quote after pearl harbor “I fear all we have done is awakened a sleeping giant, and filled him with a terrible resolve”. In this ninstance, the sleeping giant is the tea party.

  3. I saw that today and was relieved to see a headline that reflects reality. One day, the human race will no longer refer to Pyrrhic victories, but will call them Obama victories.

  4. So the decision fires up the Tea Party, puts a limit on the Commerce Clause, and portrays Obama as lying about no new taxes? This is a perfect example to liberals about the need to be careful what you wish for.

  5. You can wish it all you like but this country is in bigger trouble as a result of this insulting decision.

  6. Well, vote him out while you can (Obama), but really? The guy that did this in MA is the ideal savior from hapless boobs that did / validated the same?

    • States are supposed to be laboratories of democracy. Does this mean, if an experiment turns out badly, you’re still screwed ?

      • Has Romney ever actually repudiated RomneyCare for having “turned out badly?” I must have missed that speech.

    • It is generally agreed that States, having the “police power”, can impose such a mandate, but that the Federal Gov’t., lacking said power, cannot. Hence the reliance on the Commerce Clause – now severely restricted by CJ Roberts’ decision. But, the 16th-A gives the Feds an almost unlimited power to tax – but there is a solution to that, if you wish to avail yourself of it.

      • Simply put, you can move to a new state and continue to reap the rewards of being an American but with this, you can move to a new country if you don’t wanna pay the taxes, but then again, you no longer get the full benefit of being an American anymore, now do you?

  7. The power to tax is the power to enslave.

    For what are you willing to be a slave?

    For what are you willing to enslave others?

    Pass it on. Claim it as your own.

  8. I think that whether or not we look back on this decision as a turning point for the better or the worse will depend on our own subsequent efforts.
