    Bringing over from previous thread:

    I am sitting here with tears in my eyes seeing the SC verdicts. I have been unemployed. I have been without insurance. I know that there is a sense of fear of anything going wrong medically. That MILLIONS of Americans have peace of mind…is overwhelming.

    I can’t process the Fair Housing right now. I’m just on Obamacare.

      Say THAT rik!
      I too have known that fear of anything going wrong medically and I rejoice in the Peace of Mind that this fair ruling will give millions – whether they appreciate what PBO has done for them and their families or not.

    From Maddowblog:

    Justices Scalia, Alito, and Thomas were in the minority. Scalia, apparently annoyed that both Republican challenges to the Affordable Care Act have now failed, wrote in the dissent that he’s inclined to start calling the law “SCOTUScare.”

    He really is such a cretin.

    I read it here first, and then turned TV on…….right now the biggie is “What would have happened if it hadn’t passed……” I just want to say…..”Get over it. It’s the LAW!”

      And the GOPers are saying – “Today’s ruling makes it clear that if we want to fix our broken healthcare system, then we will need to elect a Republican president with proven ideas and real solutions that will help American families,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement.

      GOP health care fix – take our health care back – let people die. The GOP Health care option was clearly explained by Sarah Palin

      “That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy.”

    Housing decision – YAY!
    A deeply divided Supreme Court delivered an unexpected reprieve to civil rights groups on Thursday, ruling that housing discrimination need not be intentional in order to be illegal.

    The justices said people objecting to lending, zoning, sales and rental practices only need to show that they had a disparate impact on blacks or other minorities under a federal fair-housing law.

    The court’s 5-4 decision, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, was an unlikely conclusion to a years-long effort by opponents of the civil rights-era law to reduce its effectiveness against housing policies and practices used by many builders, lenders and insurers. Twice before, the justices had agreed to hear a challenge to the law, only to see the cases withdrawn or settled before reaching court.

    “The Court acknowledges the Fair Housing Act’s continuing role in moving the nation toward a more integrated society,” Kennedy wrote.

    Justice Samuel Alito, in a dissenting opinion joined by the court’s other conservatives, accused his colleagues of “a serious mistake,” which he said “will have unfortunate consequences for local government, private enterprise, and those living in poverty.”

      Now THIS one surprises me, happily.

      And ACA decision – whew! Methinks they got scared that all the Dems would have to say from now until Nov. 2016 was “no health care for Americans.” They were afraid that even some Southern states would pay attention.

      Oh, and the fact that deciding Federal law on the merits of this particular case would have destroyed their credibility completely, and made a mockery of jurisprudence. Not that that ever stopped the Roberts court before…..

      And ….. insurance companies and hospitals making money because – quelle surprise – affordable health care means people pay for health care.

    I feel so happy. I feel like crying for joy. This is such a momentous and historic victory. Thank you, SCOTUS. You’ve done something great today for millions of Americans. A 6-3 decision is damning for the Republicans who continue to deride the ACA. Hopefully, this will be the last time the ACA comes before SCOTUS.

    • June 25, 2015 at 3:02 pm

      I cried when they announced the passage of the act. I cried when he signed it, and I cried when I saw this. I have always had excelelnt health coverage, first through my family (my father worked for Chrysler and the auto company/union-fought-for health care was the gold standard) and then through my school district (fought for and won by my union, and preserved by MANY teacher concessions on pay). So I am not directly affected. But my children are, my friends are, my neighbors are, and my country is. So as a somewhat compassionate human being, I stand with Joe Biden: This.Is.A.Big.F*cking.Deal!!!

    My conspiracy theory…..

    In the last month I kept reading that the Repubs in Congress and the Senate were saying that they had a “Plan B” if the SC ruled against Obamacare. They refused to share what that “plan” was with reporters when asked. I never once believed that they had a plan. I always thought that they were making this statement in public to try and sway the courts. They thought that if the justices thought that there was another option for the public that this would move them to rule against ACA. Glad it didn’t work and I don’t put anything past these two scumbags, Boehner and McConnell.

    One day I hope to get it together to tell you my story as to why this OBAMACARE victory means so much to me.
    Right now I am so happy for the small part I played when I became a certified counselor to help enroll people

    via bj, redstate wingnutz

    The court is still forced into feckless pragmatism whenever a conservative principle is at stake, but is perfectly willing to venture beyond the expressed will of Congress in order to advance liberal agenda items on their own initiative.
    More importantly, John Roberts has now been fully exposed for what he is – a craven, unprincipled hack, determined to protect the interests of his own power and his institution’s prestige over and above the interests of doing his job well and honestly. In other words, he’s basically the Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) of the Supreme Court.

    Eating their own. sweet, sweet schadenfreude.

    Its all in the headline

    TPM which once upon a time supported democratic views says “OBAMACARE SURVIVES” And thereafter are 10 or so rightwing discussions.

    CNN where I rarely go “COURT UPHOLDS OBAMACARE” – a MUCH better way to describe what happened.
    Even Fox says “Court Upholds Obamacare Subsidies”

    Senate will use Reconciliation to repeal the law in the fall forcing PBO to veto the repeal.

    So ?
