      Yessssssss. And, if they get a chance, repeal Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security... just for grins.

      Their agenda should be fairly clear to all except the severely brainwashed.

        She's got her fingers crossed that they bring back slavery too.
        She is sick and tired of washing her own clothes, or paying someone to do it.

          Maybe our secretary of state can get a shoe for rep Ryan to munch on.

        That actually sounds like a great idea...

        Federal government doesn't belong in the healthcare. No justification in the Constitution...

        Privatize Social Security, or at least have an opt out...

      They're seriously going to run on the platform of taking away healthcare for millions, huh? Because I kind of doubt Byrnes' employer doesn't offer her health insurance, therefore this decision and law doesn't affect her in the least.

      So, good luck with that, Neocons.

        See, thing is, they need to get in there, and get it repealed before it really takes effect. Because once it does, they'll not get rid of it, because it's going to be overwhelmingly popular.

        I'd also suggest that if the vote had been 5-4 to repeal, if you look at the dissent, they wanted to repeal the entire thing. The folks who got coverage for pre existing conditions would be angry. Parents of kids, angry. And so on and so forth.

        They better get it repealed before Obama wins his second term, because after that, people are gonna dig it.

          I feel strongly that, like the issue of abortion, they won't repeal it. They'll just use it as a talking point to get more R's into Congress/the White House. I don't believe for a second that the first thing Romney would do as President is repeal the ACA, as he's claimed. He just wants to get elected and will say whatever he needs to say to get the votes.

          And if we can hold the presidency or the Senate, or even retake the House, the GOPpers dreams of repealing this legislation are over and they know it.

          That's why so much corporate and fat cat dollars are going into this campaign. The times they are a-changing, and the regressives are going to be left behind, so they have to act as quickly as possible before they are whisked away into the dustbin of history.

          Their time is short and they know it. They have to make all the cash they can before the sea change that is coming washes them away.

      Everyone time one of these "conservative" sociopaths says something like this, they should be hit with the same question. So....you are OK with 45,000 people dying every year because they either can't afford, or are denied coverage? Pro-life? Christian? My bleeding derriere!!!

      Glenn Beck was screaming about what a traitor Justice Roberts is and why he's almost as evil as Woodrow Wilson. It was fun listening to him melt down.

      Aw, Tracy -- why stop there?

      Why not "ask" if it's now the time for armed insurrection, as former Michigan GOP spokesman Matthew Davis sent out in an email following the SCOTUS decision?

        Unfortunately, I live in a hot bed of this type of reaction. I'm staying in the AC today... No sense taunting them with this big ol' smile on my face.

        In general, they are, but I see the women on the right being the "mean girls" from junior high and high school, just older (notice I didn't say "grown up").

      Remember when Mr. Cronkite crossed his fingers and wished for Roe to be appealed or when Mr. Murrow crossed his fingers and hoped for social security to be repealed...

      Yeah, neither do I.

      Business "news" indeed.

        20 years from now, when they are sucking on the govt teet (as they like to insinuate the rest of Americans do), you will have to pull this "socialist health care" out of their cold, dead hands. It's no different than Medicare, which all these same damn types of people opposed until it benefited them... now? Just try to take it away! "Keep your govt hands off of MY Medicare!". It's headache inducing, it truly is.

        I wonder what these Fox News personalities-notice I don't call them news anchors-will do in 20 years from now when they get visibly older and Ailes and Murdoch won't want them anymore?Especially the women.Does Bynes, Gretchen Carlson and Megyn Kelly actually think Uncle Rupert will keep them in their 50s when he can get someone younger and blonder?
