The 49 are the political handlers that seem to be a hangover from December, 2000. Remember that month? When the Republic died due to a decision that can never be cited as precedent? violin

Massachusetts? Are they still part of the Onion? I thought they peeled off with RomneyCare? (small snark...)

Oh boy! Let the political mud fly, and it's gonna fly like it's never flied a'fore this. We needed this to put some interest back into an election where too many are saying, "Why vote -- it only encourages them." violin

Bravo !!

Perhaps, in a few decades, the USA will advance to the point that it will have the sensible health insurance which has already existed for several decades in the more civilized nations.

But Bush V. Gore has been cited as precedent, as noted in this 2008 article.
Bush v. Gore Set to Outlast Its Beneficiary
Which should be taken as a warning to arrogant Supreme Court Justices and those seeking political coup.

When the RWNJs start whining - all the left has to say is: Thank you Mitt Romney. Bow

Romney: Supreme Court ruling on health law wrong

Republican Mitt Romney is promising that he will repeal the federal health care law the Supreme Court just upheld.

Government can mandate but can they manage?

Massachusetts law has done rather well. I'm surprised Romney didn't promote it more rather than bowing to the party needs.

Massachusetts is, however, running a deficit that has increased greater than expected. Some businesses and individuals have discovered holes and have taken advantage.

I have an excellent program. My care and access is exceptional. Will others me raised to my standards or will I be lowered to theirs? Time will tell.

Romney could not promote it, because he wanted to get nominated. He was attacked repeatedly during by his own Party. For the same reasons, he can't use it now, because so many on the right consider it Socialism. That is called being between a Rock and a Hardplace.
