    "If Republicans are serious about their opposition to the individual mandate, which I very much doubt, they can repeal it the next time they have enough legislative power. It will be interesting to watch, though, how many Republicans use this ruling as an excuse to drop their opposition to the mandate because now it’s 'constitutional'."

    I predict the GOP would not repeal this law even if they had the votes to do so. But they do talk a good game.

    The choice is clear, if you want Barrycare fully implemented, help Democrats stay in office.

    All the Republicans have to do is to come up with something better.

    I'm really not sure about that. I sense that the majority of Americans would be satisfied, initially, with Obamacare just being gone. They seem to be of the mind that starting from scratch is a preferable option.

    The majority of Americans will just forget about it now that the noise is over and accept this new gov intrusion. That's what happens when the gov grows...noise about it then acceptance. Explains how we got so far from the founders idea of the US gov. Sheep.

    The majority of Americans had no idea there was even an issue before the Supreme Court, and after a few blurbs on the six o-clock news tonight, will forget it's an issue at all.

    Only a small minority of Americans watch the political editorial channels (which somehow pass for "cable news").

    Well -- the vast majority of Americans don't vote either. All we need to do is get enough of the ones that matter to vote.

    How about getting the .govt out of health care?

    I would consider that a much better plan.

    Polls of the voting public state otherwise.

    Do you know who answers polls? People who already have an opinion politically.

    it was ruled constitutionally sound because the individual mandate is a tax.

    another tax from the left, imagine that.

    IMO it's a positive because Justice Roberts just handed Romney a victory in November.

    I'm not sure I would have put it quite the same way -- but this issue definitely is one that galvanizes the conservative base, and may help rally them around Romney in a way no other single issue could.

    that could work if there were more conservatives in this country than there are liberals and pole sitters.

    This is the same sort of irrational optimism that made many think the court would not uphold Obamacare.
