We Guess That’s It Then

Goodbye, America. It was a nice run while it lasted, but it’s time to tell the band to pack up, fill in the hole and chisel the date into the tombstone.

United States of America
1776-2012

The end.

She’s dead. Now it’s up to us if we’re up to building something to replace her, but first we need to take the trash out.

Thatisall.

Repeal is a fucking sick joke as well. 60 seats,

I would beg to differ with you, Misha. Since it has been declared a TAX, this can be repealed via reconciliation, much like the way in which is was passed, with only 51 votes (50 + Veep, if not Joeplugs).

Having read quite a bit of the majority and dissenting opinions, I believe that the Commerce Clause has been dealt a fatal blow by this ruling.
