    But you have to give them credit for being "louder" on the internet today. The text in the "Breaking News" box on their website is larger than it normally is!

    CNN seems to be in total disarray. Their live blog is being changed, but the quick changes make the current read laughable:

    In a landmark decision that will impact the nation for decades, the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a key provision of President Barack Obama's health care law, ruling that requiring people to have health insurance violates the Constitution.
    Huh? LOL

    Unlike CNN, they just had to change their headline from "Stupid SCOTUS upholds individual mandate" in order to remain fair and balanced

    Appears to be - Roberts said under the commerce clause it would be unconstitutional, but is being upheld under the taxation clause instead.

    Here is my understanding. Justice Roberts held that the mandate was not constitutional under the commerce clause but was constitutional as a tax. I view this as a win-win-win. First, it upholds the individual mandate, which I have always regarded as good policy -- voluntarily avoiding health insurance when you can afford it is effectively gambling with other people's money. Second, it appears that the Supreme Court is finally willing to start establishing limits to Congress' power under the Commerce Clause, which has been the "catch-all" provision that has allowed expansion of the federal government to unprecedented levels. Third, it recognizes the mandate for what it actually is -- a tax -- and establishes that President Obama broke his promise never to raise taxes on anyone but the rich.

    Looking forward to reading the opinion.

    CNN just had a "Dewey Defeats Truman" moment.

    That is a tremendous fail for CNN. Stunning really. Not sure if they fired the top guy yet over the ratings, but if not, I'll bet he's done.

    Someone smarter than me legally is going to have to interpret this.

    But, basically, I think the answer to your question is "yes"

    Anyone understand what the limits are.

    57 -- would you mind if I changed your thread title to "Supreme Court Rules on Affordable Care Act" -- this is obviously going to be the thread discussing it, so I think it should have a nice, easily identifiable title.
