Maybe some light
The extreme right has polarized politics so much that when a good thing happens to help millions of Americans there is weeping and gnashing of teeth by a major party and its candidate for president. Romney was true to form yesterday. He undoubtedly had a "victory" speech prepared but something went awry!
Mitt, never a financial care in his life; always with deep pockets, sons with millions in a trust account for each of them, never worried that they could not pick up the tab at Mayo Clinic or Sloan Kettering or UW Hospital. No concern about disabled child expenses. No, the idle Romneys have no financial worries so they can bravely step forward to demand self-reliance.
I see light at the end of the tunnel. I see a path that will take up to social and economic justice.
See you at Fighting Bob Fest.
The idea of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan (another millionaire) seeking the presidency and vice presidency is laughable but it is not funny. What if Romney's plan a/k/a Ryan's budget becomes law? The exhiliration of today would quickly turn sour, but I am not worried about that. Why? Because the American people may be a little slow on the uptake, but when they understand the issues they will respond appropriately.

For progressives single payer is the ultimate goal. We now have a mandated tax, that will be paid at a disproportionately high rate by working people. A tax that will incorporate the 20% skim taken by the insurance industry. It's a racket because they are getting something ($billions), guaranteed by the government, for nothing, or built in structural inefficiency and profit. But the ruling is a victory because, recognized as tax, we can now push (demonstrate,organize, demand) for progressive tax treatment and elimination of the portion of the tax paid simply to guarantee profits to the financial sector. Having healthcare recognized as a tax could open up opportunities for us in the movement for true universal healthcare.

What if the Roberts decision were a move to influence fall elections? Would his decision sufficiently irritate voters to vote out dems and firmly implant the cons?

With Roberts' vote on health care, is it possible that we are seeing the first signs of Republicans sobering up?
