Frankly, I'm surprised it was upheld. Very surprised.

That does not mean that I did not want it upheld...but still.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

This was the Chief Justice's way of making up for flubbing the inauguration oath. "My bad, Barry. You can keep your mediocre health care law."

Free coverage!  Perfect. 

No downside there.

From what I understand you won't have free coverage, you're required by law to buy your own insurance (as most of you probably already do) or you'll be "taxed" in order to cover your needs.

Even the most hard-core republicans have to be happy with some of this legislation though, ie:

But there are exemptions for poor and greatly expanded medicare eligibility.

And that's a bad thing? I know many of you have strong views on government and taxation, but...
