    I was watching the CSPAN coverage of the Democratic members of Congress talking about the ACA and I became aware of a horrible noise near them. I finally identified the dulcet tones of Michelle Bachmann opining nearby. OMG, what a voice! Luckily I couldn’t make out what she was saying! 😆

        Here ya go Jackie…from Politico http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-haberman/
        POLITICO’s Lucy McCalmont catches a politically charged detail:

        With all eyes on the individual mandate Thursday, Mitt Romney got a shout-out from Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her opinion on the Affordable Care Act.

        Writing on the subject of providing affordable insurance to those with preexisting conditions, Ginsburg noted that Massachusetts “cracked [the] adverse selection problem.” and highlighted briefs explaining “the success of Massachusetts’ reforms.”

        Under the Massachusetts health system, most residents were required to buy insurance so that insurance companies wouldn’t be left only with sick customers – and thus skyrocketing premiums.

        “As a result, federal lawmakers observed, Massachusetts succeeded where other States had failed,” Ginsburg wrote.

        Ginsburg also referenced a brief “noting … the Commonwealth’s reforms” which “reduced the number of uninsured residents to less than 2%, the lowest rate in the Nation, and cut the amount of uncompensated care by a third… In coupling the minimum coverage provision with guaranteed­ issue and community-rating prescriptions, Congress followed Massachusetts’ lead.”

    A great day for our president, and for the American people. So happy! Just got a call from a friend over here who works with Democrats Abroad.. she speculates there may be so much discord at the GOP convention… might even be a chance for them NOT to nominate Romney, and try to find a last-minute candidate.

    John Fugelsang, Actor and comedian: Chief Justice John Roberts upholds #Obamacare & millions of GOPs finally decide there’s a reason to blame Bush.

    From a gentleman waiting to pick up his prescription meds, right after the SCOTUS announcement:
    “Obamacare is government-run healthcare! It’s an abomination!”
    To which he was asked “so how do you feel about the VA?”
    To which he replied “I love it!”
    I wish I was joking.

    CSpan 3 is pretty much an unwatchable bit of hate and bile right now. *changes website to WH live*
    You know, the funny thing is, here in Germany people are required by the state to have health insurance. I do not remember ANYONE making a fuss about it…

    Of course, Larry Odonell has been Wrong on HC since it’s inception.

      Cindy, Marshall has been off base on a lot of things lately, but he’s right in focusing on the people in this country who will now begin to get the health care they deserve. I would love for one pundit to shut up for just a minute about the politics and talk about what this does for the American people. Every single American dodged a bullet today.

    So since the ruling didn’t go the way that majority of the village and GOP thought, now the meme is going to cling to the SCOTUS calling this a “tax” on the middle class and all the tweets and statements of the GOP are all including this line almost verbatim.

    What I think is funny is that last night Romney was talking all tough he went so far as to say he bet it was gonna be a tough night in the WH. My bet, tonight is gonna be a tough night for Romney.

    Romney’s campaign is fundraising like crazy off this SCOTUS decision. If you can, please make a donation today. Large or small every dollar has a great impact.

    I have posted the Fun4ObamaRaisers links upthread.

    Even if you cannot donate, pick a link and share it on FB or twitter.

    Thanks everyone.

    Oh WOW, brilliant statement from POTUS. He laid out the provisions of HCR to dispel all the lies, ignorance and nonsense out there. He talked about the need for reform and why it will be better for all Americans. He hung the mandate around Romney without being negative. 10000% Leadership.

    From TPM:

    Roberts: Not Our Job To Protect Americans From ‘Consequences Of Their Political Choices’

    A remarkable passage from Chief Justice John Roberts’ majority opinion Thursday upholding ‘Obamacare’:

    Members of this Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation’s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.
