If we have to accept Obamacare so does Congress. A tax is supposed to be applied fairly across the population and giving people who make a 6 figure salary financial assistance paid for by the taxpayer while the rest of us get taxed into bankruptcy is not being treated fairly. Grassley was correct in inserting the provision in Obamacare so that we all get treated fairly. I hope someone sues and takes it back to the supreme court over all the waivers and special deals that were changed after the law was passed by the Democrats.

The House was controlled by the Republicans... They passed this legislation.

“Obamacare” looks increasingly inevitable, but one lawsuit making its way through the court system could pull the plug on the sweeping federal health care law.

A challenge filed by the Pacific Legal Foundation contends that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional because the bill originated in the Senate, not the House. Under the Origination Clause of the Constitution, all bills raising revenue must begin in the House.

The Supreme Court upheld most provisions of the act in June, but Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. took pains in the majority opinion to define Obamacare as a federal tax, not a mandate. That was when the Sacramento, Calif.-based foundation’s attorneys had their “aha” moment.

“The court there quite explicitly says, ‘This is not a law passed under the Commerce Clause; this is just a tax,’” foundation attorney Timothy Sandefur said at a Cato Institute forum on legal challenges to the health care act. “Well, then the Origination Clause ought to apply. The courts should not be out there carving in new exceptions to the Origination Clause.”

The Justice Department filed a motion to dismiss the challenge in November, arguing that the high court has considered only eight Origination Clause cases in its history and “has never invalidated an act of Congress on that basis.”

The GOP House has voted 40 times to kill Obamacare... Do you think that #41 will be any different?

ObamaCare is a fact... Republicans passed it in the house and senate and the President signed it into
law.  
Get over it!

Yeah, keep on printing money with QE infinity to pay the debt. Destroying the value of everybodies personal savings.  That's sound economic policy.  Luckily Americans are economically ignorant and will see this as a reduction of government spending.  When in fact they are stealing money from the poor and middle class.

Slave on slaves.

Republicans For OBAMACARE

Quoted Text
A former Republican operative in Georgia who was diagnosed with cancer
revealed last week that his medical struggles have made him a supporter of the
new federal health care law known as "Obamacare."

“When you say you’re against it, you’re saying that you don’t want people like
me to have health insurance," he wrote.

Murphy was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2000 but, after four rounds of
chemotherapy (covered by his insurance), it had gone into remission by 2004.
He wasn't in the clear quite though. Because his sleep apnea qualifies as a
"pre-existing condition," Murphy explained to the Journal-Constitution, he
currently has no insurance.

The 38-year-old Murphy now works in real estate and said he will enter Georgia's
health insurance exchange when it opens in 2014. He doesn't think Obamacare is
perfect, but said that Republicans "are not even participating in the process" to
suggest improvements.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


...you are a product of your environment, your environment is a product of your priorities, your priorities are a product of you......

The replacement of morality and conscience with law produces a deadly paradox.

Americans Got Wealthier When Nobody Was Looking

Quoted Text
“In its August report, the BEA revised a bunch of a measures including disposable
personal income, which was ‘revised.. down for 2008 (G Worst Bush), and up for
2009-2012′(B OBAMA).
That means essentially that Americans have had more money in their pockets…”

“It goes a long way in explaining in why President Obama won last year…  Americans had
more money than we thought, and growth was better coming off of a more depressed 2008
than originally believed.”

“For explaining elections… disposable income growth over the course of a president’s term
continues to do a pretty good job. If people have more money in their pockets, they’re more
likely to reward the party in power.”
