The President's Healthcare program is upheld by the Supreme Court. I said last night it looked to me like a tax increase, and that's exactly what the court decided today in finding that it is constitutional.
Immediate blowback from a lot of you, here's YOUR 2 Cents.
Tracy asks: "So are we now a socialist country? We can't survive 4 more years of this guy."
Eric from Oklahoma City: "The Supreme Court just provided a check and balance of a decision that was approved by the Congress."
Linda from Maud: "Washington is so far removed from the American people. I pray for this country."
Jamie watching online from Fort Worth: "This is a similar reaction that Americans had to social security. Fifty years from now people will look back at this and laugh."
Mica says: "Normal people can't afford this. We have children to feed. I myself will be in big trouble because I feel feeding my kids is more important."
Anita writes: "Just another right taken away. What will be next?"
Dale in Weatherford: "Guess I'm a crook now, I will not buy something I don't have the money for nor will I pay the tax!"
And finally Don says: "This is yet another freedom that is being taken from us. All because our healthcare system failed due to corporate greed."
