In the Supreme Court, activist justices take on health care - The Washington Post

Who are the real judicial activists?
Both sides are. Because it's normal. Duh.
So why does one side say it's only the other side who does it?
MORE HYPOCRISY FROM THE RIGHT.

"Liberals should learn from this display that there is no point in catering to today’s hard-line conservatives. The individual mandate was a conservative idea that President Obama adopted to preserve the private market in health insurance rather than move toward a government-financed, single-payer system. What he got back from conservatives was not gratitude but charges of socialism — for adopting their own proposal."

That's right. More conservative hypocrisy - this time at the SCOTUS.
1. The individual mandate is a conservative idea originated at the Heritage Foundation in the 1990's
2. A Republican governor (Mitt) was the one who first enacted a mandate.
3. Every other developed country has come to the same conclusion: Everyone must be covered or per capita costs become excessive.

Yet now that Obama might get the credit for their own idea they oppose it. Heritage even changed their platform. Does that surprise ANYONE! Republicans have developed into the biggest fail we've ever had in Washington. They oppose things they know to be necessary just because they don't want a Dem to get the credit. What absolute assholes these Republicans are.

So we'll continue on the same fiscally idiotic path, paying twenty percent overhead to middle-man insurance companies who pay their executives outrageous fortunes and cut services to do so.

I just read in the paper that Blue Shield went from non-profit to profit some few years ago. Well, my doctor no longer honors Blue Shield because they "cut payments to doctors while simultaneously hiking executive salaries". And this has happened at all the major insurance companies. For-profit health care is simply more trickle up. It's immoral. It's greed, again. Phuck Republicans, phuck their hypocrisy and phuck their corporate mentality.:mad:

Now strike down O-care so we can get on to single-payer government financed health care for all. In the long run there is no avoiding that.

For sure.

And in case anyone forgot...
I used to be Republican,
Never have been a Democrat,
Independent for the foreseeable future.

It all started with Newt. He's a pox on America.

Wow. Medicare is such a resounding success in efficiency. Maybe the government should take over as a single payer. It's worked so well in Europe that none of them are drowning in debt from healthcare and other government run programs. What you are really saying is we should be paying European style taxes including their high VAT to pay for this. Regressive taxes, I plucking love it. Bring it on.

Here is another idea. Instead of single payer how about the government expand Medicare to any American looking for insurance to buy. They are so much more efficient without all the admin costs and high priced executive salaries that the government should be able to undercut the private insurers by a large margin, right? This would force private insurers to compete on price and we should all benefit. If the government really can outcompete on price like you imply this idea should be welcome. And this could be the first time any government program could be more efficient than the free market.

The Socialist in Chief is doing a bang up job berating the Supreme Court yesterday. Today he had to swallow his pride and try to distance himself from yesterday's vomit festival where he basically made a verbal threat to the highest Court in the land.

I think he's read the writing on the wall that the Health Care Mandate and possibly the entire Health Care bill will be struck down as unconstitutional.

He's smart enough to know that he's in trouble....that's about it.:rolleyes:

"The highest court in the land" is a political hack fest. I think everyone knows that by now.

FYI, smarty pants. Once this version of health care (one developed by conservatives BTW :rolleyes:) is struck down that will open the door for government funded universal care. A lot of people are going to be pissed at the political act of striking down O-care. And a lot of other people have been very pissed at Obama for caving to Republicans and not pursuing universal care. Combine those two things and there will be even more support for universal care. The law of unintended consequences is waiting in the wings. Republicans should have jumped all over this deal. It's what they asked for and it's the best (most profit-producing) thing they are going to get.

We'll see...any appointees to the USSC that don't believe in the US Constitution (the way its written) are by definition unfit to serve. Those people are the hacks. Its their job to apply the Constitution in the way its written to US Laws. There are no interpretive powers granted to the USSC. There is no law to be applied from outside of the US with desiding the consitutionality of a US Law, Application of foreign laws is also not allowed. Those moves are made by political hacks. FYI, conservatives aren't the ones people are concerned about with regard to these issues....

Preventing individuals from purchasing health insurance over state lines would be a great start to correcting the issues that allow the free market to make things more affordable.

Anything that's been implemented up til now has been just a government power grab.
