    sounds to me like someone who understands the 10th Amendment. the article makes false claims that John Roberts decision was somehow evidence of his support of Obama care. it was not. his decision merely pointed out that Obama's healthcare bill was a new set of taxes.

    @bsking not just the rich.

    Several large companies are opting to pay the penalty(tax) when they file taxes because the penalty(tax) will be cheaper than providing health care for their employees.

    Good going Obama supporters. Enjoy the handouts while you still can.

    @PoliticalSpice - this may be the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I guess there may be no relevant news today. Look at the first 4 post of the day. Not one thing of importance.

    @kirbstomp1 the dumbest thing. Your not giving them the credit they deserve. Is this more dumb then texas seceeding? Or the arizona electoral college comments questioning obamas birth certificate? or that woman will not become pregnant if it is a "legitimate" rape? or that "mission accomplished" banner? You really shouldn't "misunderestimate" these folks...

    @PoliticalSpice - lol I shall bite my tongue before I make an unjust statement such as my former one. I need to put more thought and consideration into what I am saying so not to make myself look dumb.

    Oh dear God. The mission accomplished banner may be this biggest publicity BS stunt I've seen with my own 2 eyes.(sadly enough I liked Bush then, I was also ignorant) Even with that said I knew then it was a joke of a publicity stunt. Oh and look were still on the mission, 4 years later. The birth certificate one, all I can say if you don't think he's a born American then your a fool. Our system wouldn't allow that to happen. Texas...enough said.

    Here's the problem with the Bible Belt. They keep threatening to secede but won't actually do it. This country (that remained without the BB) would see our quality of life increase, our taxes lowered (since we don't have to support them), our freedoms become actual freedom again and on top of all that? The cherry on the whipped cream. The national average I.Q. would jump up by a good 20 points.

    Home visits to see how you are living? That is the first I have heard of that. Nancy was right you have to pass it to find out what’s in it. I can’t imagine even the liberals would want that especially if they are subject to the same.

    What law would the officials be breaking? I am against Obamacare but I also don't see how enforcing it as a law would be against the law. If the State votes out the law so it can not be implemented their maybe then it would against the law to enforce it as it would not be an enforceable law. The more we learn about the content of Obamacare the less popular it becomes. Most people are against it, it is Obama's crowning acheivement and he still got re-elected. I think that proves the vast majority of all voters are not well informed voters.

    Ok, if the legislation this twit is introducing passed the state law in douth carlonia would make it illegal for people, mostly state and federal employees, to implement Obamacare. That is the law people would be violating, except that the constitution makes clear federsl law overrides supercedes state law, so the south carolina bill, if signed into law, would be uneforceable.
    As to voters re-electing obama, let me give a hint. I am unhappy with obama care. I supported national health care, single payer or at least a public option. Of those single payer is the easiest to implement because the systems are slready in place, all that would be necessary, legally, was to remove the words "over sixty five" from the medicare statute. I and most people I know supported one of the three options I mentioned, none supported obamacare. So why did I and people like me vote to re-elect him? Simple, because with all its flaws, obamacare still marks the largest expandion in healt care access in over 50 years.
    I donot expect you to agree with the obamacare, judt trying to explain why many people who opposed the law still voted obama.

    @PoliticalSpice I know federal law supercedes state law but the SCOTUS has said that states can opt-out of Obamacare and many have. So then Obamacare could not be enforced in those states. Therefore anyone trying to enforce a law that is not in effect in that state is not doing so legally.
    Nobody can be legally denied medical care due to lack of insurance, but many do not seek it do to the out of pocket expense. If not for the VA coverage I have I probably would have been one of them after I lost my job due to an illness. That illness would have killed me if not treated when it was. I don't think anyone should have to die due to the fear of mounting medical costs stopping them from going to the hospital, and I could have easily been one of them.
    I even knew it was serious and and my vitals were out of control and felt like it would kill me (doctor's confirmed that after problem was discovered and surgery was scheduled) if left untreated but I did not go to the hospital without knowing the costs were covered. I however do not think that this legislation is a good choice to cover the uninsured and that it will decrease the quality of healthcare recieved. Also much of the law includes provisions not even relevant to its original intent.

    @crusader well the s ct said the states could opt out of only part of obamacare. I read the entire decision.it was the medicade expansion they could opt out of, if memory serves correctly...

    The problem is that it will be federal law in 2014. I don't agree with a lot of the law, but can do nothing about it until the next Presidential election, then vote in a Republican. The Democrats don't have to worry about having a Republican President because they will still hold the majority in the senate.
    I don't agree with the mandate that you have to buy health insurance or you will be "taxed". That is not a tax, it doesn't follow the definition of a tax. It is a penalty! What about the people with pre-exhisting conditions. Their premiums are astronomically higher. Is the federal government going to supplement it enough for the average citizen to be able to purchase it? Probably not. I have a pre-existing condition and just bought PPO insurance. To get major medical insurance (which is what I need) would have cost me upward of $5,000 a month with very high deductibles is way more than I or most anybody can afford. Also, no one has any business coming into my home!

    Using different numbers in this calculator it looks like many will be shifted to Medicaid. The problem with that is fewer doctors will take Medicaid. According to this a healthy single young adult making minimum wage and can’t get insurance through where they work will be eligible for Medicaid. My own insurance will go down a little but I know someone is going to pay for it. http://healthreform.kff.org/subsidycalculator...

    Medicaid is not just limited by doctors. They will not pay for medicines and procedures that are needed. The funny thing is that Medicaid will pay for narcotic pain meds and Valium!

    A replublican official with a democrats name. Obamacare... Lmfao... This prooves even further that we probably dont even choose the president and it dont matter which we do choose if we did because its probably someone in the backround making the decisions. Obama will not take your shotguns, handguns, or rifles. His 2008 campaign speech. Obama is not against medicinal marijuana, its the same as a dr prescribing any other drug for an ailment he said in an interview yet he is jaing dr.s. We have a tyrant in office with the anti-christ pushing him. A bill of disposal of the 22nd amendment was introduced which would allow obama to have endless terms of presidency. Hiter 1930's ''To conqor a nation you must first dissarm its citizens'' This is getting completely out of hand!!! Pissing off russia which is threatening nuclear attack and getting pissed off because we are the terrorist by involving ourselves in battles we dont belong and not getting alproval from the u.n. Ya... America is looking like terrorist. Where is homeland security? Watching citizens of this country who's ancestors came here for freedom. They dont care if we get nuked. Depopulation by the nwo. They are gonna sit in their nice cushy bunkers which tax payers pay for but know nothing about. And they are gonna take our guns before it happens so we have no way of defending ourself. Guns are to protect the constitution against a tyrannical gov. And so there would be more than the organized military to protect this country against attack. Where is out AMERICAN soldiers on out side? NO MORE NWO!!!

    Just the introduction of the bill should be yet another signal to the brain dead morons in Washington DC that Uncle Ben's Healthcare isn't going to fly, but, I guess they really ARE all brain dead. The funniest thing though is going to be the looks on the faces of "lawmakers" when they realize that there are only a few people in the country that are actually intimidated by an IRS agent - or anyone else in government.

    50-50. As the law would apply to state employees, fine. As it applies to Federal agents, not so good. The problem with the concept that Fed trumps State is that the constitution strictly limits what the Fed is allowed to legislate. If one can find anyplace in the constitution that supports this law, then it trumps the State law. We should remember the results of the Nuerenberg trials. Some laws are illegal in spite of being made by the state.

    Whatever's needed. I say jailing a few socialists is worth saving millions of jobs and possibly one of the few industries America remains the top dog in: Healthcare.

    To all those opposed to this: Are all the states officials in the states who have legalized medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are dim wits and stupid and even "retarded" as fellow member "idiot" said?

    It is helpful when the real morons self-identify. Actually, I think Mr Chumley is making a bid for his 15 minutes in the spotlight.
    At least it's a little fodder for whoever runs against him.

    Obama's new welfare plan called Obama Care was approved by the supreme court. So jailing people who impliment it is just silly, you would have to reverse the court.

    Colorado and Washington made weed legal although it is against Federal Law, an example of state nullification. Being passed by the Supreme Court left South Carolina with no other option but nullification.
