POLL: Do You Agree With the Supreme Court's Decision on Obamacare?

The Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate of so-called "Obamacare." What do you think?

The Supreme Court ruled today that the individual health care mandate is constitutional, according to the Huffington Post.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote the opinion in support of upholding the provision, according to the Washington Post.

Conservatives have criticized the mandate, saying it is unconstitutional. The presumed Republican presidental candidate, Mitt Romney, has vowed to overturn the law if he is elected, reported the New York Times.

Tom, it’s actually the people that are FOR this that are the "deadbeat losers." Let me break it down for you, those with insurance or access to Medicaid/care, that would be me and 265 million other Americans, are now going to be FORCED to pay a TAX to subsidies those 46 million Americans w/o insurance....the people you are referring to as "irresponsible deadbeat losers." Here is an idea, instead of a massive expansion of the federal government, further erosion of our civil liberties and the largest increase in taxes in decades, we come up with a solution that we can actually afford and doesn't involve the theft from savers and wage earners to subsidies other people's healthcare. One solution might be tort reform, but seeing how our government is run by lawyers I doubt that will happen.

I was wondering about that. I suspect (suspect only) he might also be the "Thomas James" who has been shadowing a few posts of mine. Has any other Patch contributor had such a thing happen to them?
