    Default Obamacare Wins, We Lose: Chief Justice Roberts Delivers a Grand Slam for the Right

    June 28, 2012
    Roberts & Dems Deliver a Grand Slam for the Right
    Obamacare Wins, We Lose
    by JOHN STAUBER


    It was a brilliant move by far Right (but oh so likable) Chief Justice Roberts to side with the Dem-appointed Justices and uphold ObamaCare. After all, this is a massive victory for corporate power, forcing citizens to buy an expensive insurance product that won’t serve our needs very well but will profit industry, in lieu of receiving real health care.

    Obamacare and its corporate mandate were born on the Right (as in Heritage Foundation) as a way to destroy the political prospects of any single payer system that would cover all Americans with a tax-funded system of guaranteed medical care. This is the way all other industrial societies protect the right to health care, by taking it out of the hands of the giant insurance industry. The right to health care is like the right to not be enslaved – there are no half measures, and the insurance industry is the slave master.

    Roberts siding with Dems has probably bounced Obama right out of office. The public overwhelmingly hates Obamacare, and this pours gas on the electoral fire.

    I don't hate Obamacare ( as you and others call it ), I feel we need healthcare for everyone. I have yet to read the article but will soon.
    Besides, isn't the healthcare issue almost a direct copy of what Romney pushed though in Massachusetts while he was governor, yet he now opposes that same idea.
    Romney is a two faced hypocritical politician, so watch what you want in the presidential election, you may not get what you expect.

    Spaghetti,
    I fail to see how the political agenda of the left or the right has anything to do with nano patents, gold nano-particles, healthcare for truckers, green technology, or ethics as they relate to emerging technologies.
    Please stay on the topic of crappy politicians fighting over mandated healthcare, and how in the end, they really don't care about our health anyways.
    I would know where to begin on editing this post, besides obliterating it from the face of the interwebs, so I'll just let it stand for now.

    Please restore the links to the full public news releases that you edited so that people can read the complete releases.

    I thought the three paragraph rule was intended for copyrighted material, not news releases, so that this website would not be open to legal action.

    Thanks for your help and understanding.

    It is very much the topic that many chose to ignore.

    Is Health Care Reform Part of Agenda 21 Sustainable Development?

    imagine that?

    The Green Agenda - Agenda 21

    Oh yeah, the technology that is being installed into your trucks is a small part of it, too.

    "Following the UNCED, the UN Department for Policy Coordination and Sustainable Development (UNPCSD) established the Inter-Agency Committee on Sustainable Development (IACSD) with the main objective of coordinating UN agencies' and NGOs' efforts to implement Agenda 21."

    The Court Rules: Obamacare is the Largest Tax Increase in the History of the World

    So Obamacare is nothing more than the largest tax increase in the history of the world. And the people who were characterizing it as such were right and were telling the truth. We have the biggest tax increase in the history of the world right in the middle of one of this country's worst recessions. In fact, as the vice president said yesterday, a depression for millions of Americans. The chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, John Roberts, said, "It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices." Not our job.

    Both links are still there.
    They were never taken out.
    The releases must be on the website link somewhere?, and both of those links are the same also.
    I'm assuming you copy and pasted off that website?

    Here is a direct link to one of the press releases that you speak of, not a general homepage of that site.

    Nope. The two seperate links for the two news releases are missing. I can't find them.

    Please delete the post containing both releases for me. I don't think I can delete them.

    I'll repost them with the links.

    Thanks again.
