    As I've said before...if Republicans are gonna get rid of Obamacare, they better do it fast before the benefits kick in... If they try to take it away after the benefits kick in, there is gonna be one hell of a backlash.

    And puts the RJ conservaposse in a tough spot. They have been unanimous in their objection to anyone having government health care.

    And if the US Supreme Court rules against it (which seems likely and also imperils Medicare and Social Security), what will they say? That what Romney enacted in Massachusetts can't be enacted by a Black President in the White House?

    Because that's really what it amounts to. Pure racial and Republican Party hatred. To Hell with US citizens, it's all about Party over People, and corporate Super-Pacs over democracy.

    Fascism:

    Fascists promote a type of national unity that is usually based on (but not limited to) ethnic, cultural, national, racial, and/or religious attributes.

    Various scholars attribute different characteristics to fascism, but the following elements are usually seen as among its integral parts: nationalism, militarism, anti-communism, totalitarianism, statism, dictatorship, economic planning (including corporatism and autarky), populism, collectivism, autocracy and opposition to classic political and economic liberalism.

    If it is upheld would be interesting to see every week one company or university opt out of healthcare completely. Not all at once, but one per week.

    Yes. And then the calls for single payer will become too loud to ignore.

    That's also a mighty big assumption....the only college in the news that has completely dropped insurance was a Catholic University over moral reasons...but, thanks to the other provisions in Obamacare, they can get healthcare elsewhere.
