WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following today's U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare, Sen. Rand Paul offered the following statement:
"Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be 'constitutional' does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional. While the court may have erroneously come to the conclusion that the law is allowable, it certainly does nothing to make this mandate or government takeover of our health care
right," Sen. Paul said.

In an age of voter disgust at Congress’s inability to get anything done, Senator Rand Paul is finding success through obstruction.
This week, as the Senate convened to pass a backlog of bills before the Fourth of July holiday, Paul demanded a guaranteed vote first on defining life as starting at conception, as part of a bill renewing national flood insurance. Majority Leader Harry Reid postponed the debate rather than yield to what he called in a June 26 floor speech a“ridiculous” request. Paul has used similar tactics to try to cut aid to Egypt and Pakistan, bolster gun rights, reduce union membership among Washington residents and highlight privacy concerns connected with proposed changes to a U.S.-Switzerland tax treaty.

House Republican leaders set a vote in two weeks to repeal the nation’s health care law – a largely symbolic act that is not be expected to go anywhere in the Democratic-led Senate. House Minority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said the vote will be July 11.
“The House will once again vote to repeal ObamaCare," the leader said in a tweet.
House Republicans already voted to get rid of the law in one of their first acts in taking the majority in 2011. They had promised another vote after the Supreme Court decision.
Conducting a day of healthcare voting would likely energize the conservative base before the November
So as I see the coverage of this today on MSNBC, CNN and FOX The range from: Great Day, Good day for president Obama and The worst day in America
I will say this as far as the GOP, they will fight like hell to repeal something that granted “needs more fine turning” but as a whole good thing for the country, but not a word of repeal was spoken when Citizens United was past..
A few months ago Mitt Romney said:
“Americans are not that stupid”
Look he was right about something.
So what do you think?
