    Default Obamacare upheld by US supreme court as conservative justices rescue law

    I am absolutely good with this because the republicans never, ever had any kind of back up plan!
    Barack Obama celebrated a decisive victory for his healthcare reforms after the US supreme court threw out a Republican-led legal challenge that could have gutted the legislation and stripped millions of Americans of their health insurance.

    “This was a good day for America,” the president said at the White House, marking a decisive turning point in his administration’s battle to reduce the number of uninsured Americans.

    “The Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” he added, claiming that “as the dust has settled, there can be no doubt that this law is working”.

    The decision in the high-stakes case of King v Burwell all but guarantees that the law, more commonly known as Obamacare, will survive intact until at least the 2016 election, giving its supporters hope that the reforms will become impossible to reverse – even if a Republican is elected to the White House.

    I don't know as I am still on the fence with Obamacare.. As crappy as it is at least we don't have to go through the whole ritual of starting all over.. Five more years before she is eligible for medicare.. Should have thought about this before falling in love with a younger woman.. Ow wait!!! I saw my ex last weekend and trust me as I did the "RIGHT" thing..

    Age has nothing to do with how you look. Trust me on this one. It is all about taking care of yourself. It is like my friend tiredseat tells me, age is just a number. He is right!

    Let me straighten this out,my wife is six years younger than I am ans still looks like she is under fifty.. My ex is the same age as I am and she looks like she has ten years on me .. But then again maybe she is trying to match her current husband who is old enough to be my father..

    That's a losing wager. You won't sucker me into that one.

    Why all the drama ? If the ACA is not perfect, why don't all those politicians stand up, get together and make it better ?
    In other words, still waiting for the other side to offer up something besides obstructionism.
