Nearly every analyst weeks ago said that the SCOTUS would strike down the Individual Mandate. Every single God damn one of them.
They were wrong.
The funny thing is that people are now saying they are going to leave the US because they want to live where there’s “no universal health care.” Here is a list of every advanced, industrialized, happy democratic country in the world that doesn’t have universal health care:
There. So I hope you find what you are looking for. Dumb-asses.
I’m not really for the individual mandate, but I am completely on the side that CONGRESS PASSED THIS LAW, CONGRESS NEEDS TO FIX THIS LAW. Not the courts. Not the President.

Only problem is that Congress won’t do anything because a) for the Democrats, it’s their baby, and b) for the Republicans, it’s something they can lord over the Democrats from now until eternity.
