I'd like to know how Roberts defines "tax."
It seems to me, a "tax" is something that is applied to some action, like purchase or working for wages or making a profit or importing, etc., etc., etc.
This is definitely a case where the definition of "tax" has been corrupted to mean an inaction can be "taxed."
According to this ruling, a person can be "taxed" if they don't travel once a day on a certain street, for example.
This is just one more case that proves 5 justices are better than 9 justices. We need to go back to the original definition of the Supreme Court before FDR stacked it to ensure all of his agenda would pass regardless of constitutionality. Today, the Supreme Court can accurately be described as schizophrenic.
Go do some offshore drilling doofus.

Many of us have always had Health Care Insurance from the time we went to work.Many carry Insurance supplemental into retirement.It is true we need to take care of the ones that can not work,can not find work,but not the ones that won`t work.Not the illegals,and just what is the sense in this Nation giving money it has to borrow,to other nations?
Again,the system is broken!!Vote Tea Party this November,it might be,we could make that" CHANGE" talked about.

Many will "slam" this because they do not wish to give up what is known,for what would cause them to get out of bed.

This is the reason I jumpd onto the Tea Party motto of back to the Constitution,term limits,Congress could pass no law that does not equally apply to Congress(in effect putting them on the same SS# and Health Care they put on "we the people):. Does any one think they would have robbed the SS# funds if they were to receive them for their old age?Does anyone think they would have saddled the people with this Health Care Bill if they had to be recipients of it instead of their own? No way!!
There are no term limits in the Constitution you dumbass.

When the U.S. Supreme Court releases its decision on the fate of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Justice Elena Kagan will cast a vote that should not have been counted.
The relevant rule requires that Supreme Court justices recuse themselves if in their previous capacity they served as "counselor or advisor" concerning a current matter before the Court, or if there is anything about the proceeding by which the justice's impartiality can reasonably be called into question
At any rate, she had in fact participated as "counselor or advisor" of the law when she was solicitor general, and she is clearly not impartial about the fate of ObamaCare, so she should recuse herself in this case
But she won't. The problem is that recusal of a Supreme Court justice is self-executing. That is, the Supreme Court justice has to do it herself.
As sitting Supreme Court justice, Elena Kagan could very well be deciding on responses to arguments that she herself had helped formulate when she was solicitor general.
So, in other words, she was involved in formulating a decision re: Obamacare, and she got to vote on it. How is that right? This is a sham, and she should never have been allowed to sit on the SC and vote on it.
Conflict of interest, to say the least.

Found at least a partial answer to my question above!
Yes ,and ,no,~ The tax is a sales tax on ones with incomes over $250,000 per year,or ,ones in that range making a profit on the sale of the home.Not too likely to happen in the environment of houses today.However this could cause many seniors with homes that cost very little bought many years ago,and now worth so much greater than then paid.Don`t think any one much would fall into this category,except the filthy rich.

Thanks Culture Vulture,you inspired me to find it!!

Listen...can you hear that? Scrape, scrape, scrape! That's the dems hard at it again today! Obama had a conference call with his gang and told them that they need to get on the ball because people are contributing big bucks to Romney and are out-raising Obama big time. This is happening even with Obama's edge on campaigning on the tax payers dime and calling those trips "presidential". You'd think with that kind of savings (using tax dollars) he would be far ahead of Romney in the campaign contribution department. LOL RuhRoh...reality is setting in and Obama, being Obama, needs to blame it on somebody and his campaign team is better than the Bush excuse this time. LMMFAO! That well deserved and well earned Obama karma colonic reared it's ugly head at the worst time, huh?

I can hear the poor guy now...NO EFFING WAY citizens decided to get smart now just before my re-election. WTF???

Ah, the sweet sound of scraping. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside when good wins over bad. Will it still be considered an Obama historical moment when he loses bigger than he won? lol

In regards to the last point you made here, while you and I don't see eye to eye on some things, it is beyond me why there is so much anger and animosity on some of these threads. With what shows up on here at times, it's not so hard to see why people aren't pulling together for the betterment of everyone. Too often, issues are seen in black and white, rather than as a whole, and it just holds everyone back. Here's hoping people will wake up, grow up, and stand up for what they believe in without all the nonsense!

If only we had some way to have people do this very thing.It would develop into UTOPIA if only our people we sent to Washington,to the States Capitals,and we out here could be civil and talk to one another with the desire to make things better.I have even noticed the stubborn attitude in my Church officers.

I do believe we may see things differently,maybe background,training,family,wha tever,but you sound like someone that would make a good person to have around.Go for it!!!

No insult intended but you sound a little out of touch. It seems like the OWS people who sat in the streets and got high and the unions that took over Wisconsin's Capitol and banged their drums and sang Kumbaya and celebrated unity were useful in focusing on things other than what the political party wanted the focus on but it didn't get the job done. I'm sure it is Bush's fault somehow but that's the norm. It's about time people stood up and took charge and participate in their kids future. Can that get people riled up and angry and passionate? Yes. Thank goodness. Maybe these people that are starting to at least communicate and step up and stand up and speak up, even though it isn't in the manner you approve of, is what this country needs. Too many have sat back and stayed quiet and tried to be what they were told was politically correct for too long. If this is what America needs to get back on track for our kids sake then have at it! Get riled up and CHANGE things so that our citizens benefit instead of a mans personal and selfish political agenda benefiting.

A passionate debate never hurt anyone. Well, maybe it hurts some egos but they will survive, don't you think?

The Supreme Court has the responsibility of determining what is constitutional and what is not in cases where it requires interpretation by experts. We should respect SCOTUS for breaking the pattern of reaching a decision based solely on the Justicesí party affiliations, even if we disagree with its decisions.

A you may know, I am one of those liberals generally hated by the the Tea Party (as gauged by being called insulting names, being told in the rudest of terms to leave these forums, etc.). However, I strongly believe that we need to reform Congress by imposing term limits and that it should be permitted to pass no law that does not equally apply to it and other branches of government. I believe that every citizen, including elected government officials, should be covered by Social Security and Medicare In fact, I would upgrade Medicare to make it our national health care program with a single payer, private provider model.
