no chief of mine

For the last two years President Obama has been quietly and steadily fulfilling his campaign promises, not the least of which is the first major health care act since Medicare, and the very first to include those of us under 65.  Despite a Republican majority in the House I’m confident Obama will continue that good work he was hired to do.

Lately, though, I’ve been feeling a heaviness in my chest.  It isn’t a physical problem, although if it was I am one of the fortunate few to have health insurance provided to me by my employer.  No, the heaviness comes all the way from Washington DC; specifically, from the douchebaggery at the Supreme Court.

If Obama’s Affordable Care Act is argued before the Supreme Court, I am nervous Chief Justice John Roberts and his cronies will strike it down as unconstitutional.

I have reason for my worries to be justified.  Roberts struck down a bipartisan campaign reform act, co-written by that liberal bastion John McCain. Why?  You can actually see a piece of McCain’s soul dying in his remarks about the callous way the Court struck down his bill.

Chief “In”Justice Roberts* has decided that his tenure at the Court will be marked by conservative activism.  Activism has long been a swear word Republicans have lobbed at liberal judges, but now we see conservatives love to play the game they claim to hate.

There is absolutely no good reason to take health care away from the people of this country.  There are parts of the law that can be modified (see: Obama’s 2010 State of the Union address), but it is in no way unconstitutional.

John Roberts: I hate you, and I hope you live long enough to regret every bad ruling you’ve ever made.  But there is hope for you yet!  Like Ebeneezer Scrooge there is time for redemption.  These chains you see do not have to be in your future!  Tiny Tim can be cured, but only if you don’t take away his health care.tiny-tim

"I respect their decision."

Translation: "They can take their decision, roll it up reeeeal tight…"

The SC ruling about corporate campaign financing was a monumental injustice. But Dancing with the Stars was on so no one noticed.

I'm sure health care is going down, some way or another.
