More Tagging tips:
A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?
Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.
If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office.
CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.
Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.
Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary:
Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House.
If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state
Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries
that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

It's wonderful that community wants to help, but ridiculous that anyone should have to have a bake sale or beg for spare change to get life saving treatment. But this is just what Rand Paul or Tom Coburn believe should happen - don't get the government involved, have your neighbors pull together. Yeah, and maybe the doctors and hospitals will take a few of Sue Loudon's chickens instead.

and took individual responsibility for electing Barack "I was Black before the election" Obama, which is, you know, the kind of thing that bunch of friends and neighbors we call the Founders meant when they put the original Constitution together, including a taxing power, a Commerce Clause, the Promote the General Welfare idea, the Petition Congress for Redress of Grievances provision, and the rest of our Freedoms From Tyranny, even if they didn't have it clear in their own minds about slavery, and women, and the 99%, and like that. And started building infrastructure.
America, the greatest Socialist country in the world! One Nation, under however many Gods you choose from 0 to ∞, with Liberty and Justice for all, including us unReal unAmericans. Love it or self-deport! (I'll help you pack. Have fun among the Stalinists in Canada or Costa Rica.)

Louisiana Governor: Health Care Ruling Could Force People To Eat Tofu | Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) said the Supreme Court’s “frightening” ruling that upheld the Affordable Care as a tax is a “blow to our freedoms.” “What’s next?” Jindal asked, according to The Hill. He voiced concern for people who “refuse to eat tofu” or “refuse to drive a Chevy Volt” — even though the court ruled the individual mandate to buy health insurance was not constitutional under the Commerce Clause. Jindal said he expects opposition to the law to “escalate” before the presidential election and that Republican governors will not implement the law before November.
Not blaming Bush for the mess we're in, is like not blaming a train engineer for a fatal train wreck because he's no longer driving the train.

ruled against the commerce clause. Besides, it's a dumb @$$ argument in the first place.

broccoli / tofu" is a dumb @$$ argument, not the commerce clause reasoning.

They attacked him as a Godless Jacobin, because they didn't have either Communism or Islam to bash him with until the Treaty of Tripoli declared that the US is in no sense a Christian nation. Which the Senate approved. He did own a Qur'an, though, the one that Keith Ellison was sworn in on in our time.

Kinda like the reasons they give for opposing gay marriage. "Well what if a father and his daughter want to marry? Or a man and a horse? etc." Totally muddies the water which helps them because it's easier than debating on the facts.

Insurance cos are among the top 5 contributors to the GOP.
Ia m certain they LOVE the individual mandate, but, I am likewise certain they aren't thrilled by limitations on whom they can kick to the curb: Helping everybody just leaves a bad taste in a capitalist's mouth.
I imagine that's why republicans object.....
by xxdr zombiexx on Mon Jul 02, 2012 at 07:27:36 AM PDT
a) GOP ensures mandate is upheld, satisfying health co donors.
b) GOP appears to oppose mandate, satisfying propagandized base.
way to go, GOP.
