    It's not allowed under the commerce clause, but it is under the taxing power. Mandate survives, as does the rest of ACA.

    Unconstitutional under commerce clause, unconstitutional under necessary and proper, now ABC is moving their lips as they read whether or not it's a tax.

    What might that be? Mittens was for the individual mandate before Obama was.

    Upholding the Mandate as a tax makes Obama and the rest of the Democrats liars (as they argued throughout the development of the bill that it wasn't a tax). Republicans are undoubtedly pulling video files of every Democrat of significance declaring that the individual mandate did not constitute a tax.

    I guess this gives Romney another platform on which to stake his candidacy (repeal of Obamacare) -- as well as the rest of the GOP.

    But yeah -- I'm quite disappointed in Roberts...

    Only to the Sunshine Patriot. What it really is, is an opportunity to buckle down, work and achieve.

    Every Republican president since Hoover has appointed at least one Supreme Court justice that has proven to be an absolute disaster for freedom and Constitutional law. George Bush's Roberts appointment was simply continuing a long-standing GOP tradition.
