Chief Justice Roberts gave Obama what he wanted, but he also gave him something else.
How exactly are the tens of millions of people who don't even have jobs going to be able to pay the mandated federal tax for not having health insurance? Obama and his fans were celebrating openly yesterday but behind doors, they know they have a problem. If Obamacare was struck down in it's entirety yesterday, the Obama would only really have to focus on trying to deal with Romney on the main issue of the economy, however, now Obama has to defend Obamacare and the mandatory tax to the American people. The election has now become about whether people want Obamacare or not. The more people find out about what is in Obamacare, the more people don't like it. Most polls show Americans do not want it. Since Obamacare's passing in 2009, Democrats in congress have stayed far away from promoting their victory and defending it against their critics. Obama can no more defend Obamacare to the American people as being a good thing as he can't defend his economic record to the American people with a straight face. Romney will have no problem now I believe solidifying conservatives behind him. The downing of Obamacare has come too much of an issue to ignore. Romney has raised $4.3 million dollars since the Supreme Court ruling yesterday. Obama in all his arrogance believes that the debate is over, because the court ruled Obamacare constitutional. It's far from over. The people simply do not want it, and they will vote accordingly in November. I'm not going to get get on Chief Justice Robert for his ruling. He gave Obama what he wanted, but he also gave Romney and the GOP what they wanted, another huge weapon in which to go after Obama on and that he can't defend against.
