The Supreme Court just ruled on Obama's healthcare law. They upheld the individual mandate as a tax and struck down a Medicare expansion, as I understand it. I don't want this to turn into a liberals vs conservatives thread, but I'm curious what some of you think: is the individual mandate constitutional? Is it right to penalize us for not buying something? What does this mean for the 2012 elections? Is this a good thing for the white house or will this just energize the GOP? If this becomes a flame war I want a mod to shut it down.
