While I have plenty to say about this situation, I’ll add to it tonight on Live Tammy Radio at 7pm ET. I hope you can join me. Here we have a law passed on lies. You’re going to see Obama and the Democrats spike their football. On Fox News this morning I cautioned liberals about this, because the objective truth about ObamaCare’s destruction of individuals actually getting healthcare is not lost on the majority of Americans. Now, at least, the situation is clear, and conservatives must now focus on nominating and electing and authentic conservative with a plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare. The choice will be clear now with this decision, and the GOP candidates will have to take a stand.

ObamaCare’s destruction will continue. Obama talked about in this press conference, touted the “free” stuff which we know is not free when you have subsidies and then you have to deal with a $4000 deductible. As I said in October 2013 on Fox, having health insurance is not the same as getting health care. He also ignores the fact that premiums are going over in some cases over 100 percent. SO much for “affordable health care.”

Look forward to comments here.


The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the nationwide tax subsidies underpinning President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, rejecting a major challenge to the landmark law in a ruling that preserves health insurance for millions of Americans.

The justices said in a 6-3 ruling that the subsidies that 8.7 million people currently receive to make insurance affordable do not depend on where they live, as opponents contended.

The outcome was the second major victory for Obama in politically charged Supreme Court tests of his most significant domestic achievement. And it came the same day the court gave him an unexpected victory by preserving a key tool the administration uses to fight housing bias.

Chief Justice John Roberts again voted with his liberal colleagues in support of the health care law. Roberts also was the key vote to uphold it in 2012. Justice Anthony Kennedy, a dissenter in 2012, was part of the majority on Thursday.

“Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” Roberts declared in the majority opinion.

Limiting the subsidies only to individuals in states with their own exchanges could well push insurance markets in the other states “into a death spiral,” Roberts wrote.

    It’s worth listening to this speech again from 1961~!

    Who knew Jonathan Gruber was talking about those 6 Supreme Court Justices when he spoke of “the stupidity of the American voters”…? That twinkle in his eye was the thought of softie pushover John Roberts. Judicial activism has finally reached the hallowed halls of the Supremes.

    • It’s not just that the ruling goes against limited constitutional governance in this case. We can now see in no uncertain terms that the court is overtly political. This is the rejection of the rule of law by the highest court in the country. Any law can now be interpreted to mean anything that is useful for the expedience of the moment. Those in power who are pushing for an ever increasing state will certainly feel even more free to lie to our faces about what they really want and intend. Our leaders in D.C. will push even harder to sell us more dead parrots that are “just resting after a long drawn out squawk.”

    I can’t be the only one who feels completely impotent. We rail against the machine to no avail. Is anyone listening but the people in our own bubble? We try to ferret out constitutional conservatives to vote into office only to be all too often betrayed, or at the very least disappointed by.
    It feels like a punch to the gut. We always knew that this could be the outcome, but a 3 – 6 vote? Really?
    We must fight on…but today, for a few hours, I think I have to “look away”.

    • Shifra says:

      pamelarice, I understand how you feel. I am very angry. But we need to channel our anger into action. Support the best conservative candidate who can take back the WH. Continue to support Tammy Radio to get the message out there….

      The war to take back our country rages on…

      • Gordon says:

        The word of law? What law? The law is what SCOTUS wants it to be. Lawyers in dirty bathrobes. We are fast approaching a “hard tyranny!”

  4. rickh says:

    Now the Repukes will have to actually DO SOMETHING. This damn tyrannical Scotus is not going to bail their weak ass butts out.

    • pamelarice says:

      Rick, I had no idea – you’re the Donald?!

    • MaryVal says:

      The Republicans will do exactly nothing. Not one single blessed thing. I’m betting most of those cowardly lying windbags like the ruling.

      • Canonbal says:

        Sorry but you’re wrong! It’s much worse than that with these turkeys! Since they have taken over both houses, Mitch Oconnell has managed to give the most important power of the senate to el dumbo, that is the power of the purse. He couldn’t give it to POTUS FAST enough! Everything that POTUS wants, the RINO’s want to actually give him! Fast Trak to get those bills through congress faster (so the Sheeple don’t see them), GREAT!!!

        I believe that Glenn Beck (I could be wrong here) called our political system a 2-headed hydra, it’s proving to be absolutely True! There is but one party.

        Off Track; one wishful dream, what if they gave an election and nobody voted! Ya, FCIH.

        Pitchforks and torches anyone?

  5. Patricia says:

    Yes Rick (aka The Donald) I think you are right about this. I was at the march on Washington in 2009 and have been fighting this take over of our lives, including health care since. Take a breath and regroup – the battle continues. The American Revolution had General Washington and we have General Tammy: onward.

  6. hbmuzik says:

    I like the HOTAIR take on the “silver lining” aspect of the SCOTUS decision. It does indeed spare us “another excruciating episode of GOP failure theater.” As much as we wanted the decision to go the other way, had it done so the GOP would have been caught up in a maelstrom of media hissie-fits that many among them couldn’t have handled. Certainly not the Congressional leadership. It very possibly could have muddied the waters for a Republican presidential victory in ’16. I think today’s announcement will galvanize many angry Americans to work all the harder to get a true conservative in the White House next year. Anything to assure that the next WH occupant will NOT be a Bush or a Clinton! (That’s my cock-eyed optimist take on it, anyway!)

  7. Alain41 says:

    Roberts’ reasoning is contradictory with his reasoning in his first nonsensical Ocare decision. When Roberts found Ocare to be a tax, he said something like, it’s not the SCOTUS job to intervene in election consequences. By saying that if they found otherwise here that that would put Ocare in a death spiral, he is saying that it is SCOTUS job to intervene in election consequences. Because by reading the statute as written, nothing prevents any representative (especially Democrats) from legislating a revision to the law to address the issue (and the ‘death spiral’). But that would likely mean additional revisions rather than just the one desired by Obama. And why would there be additional revisions? Because the Dems would have to deal with Republicans ELECTED BY THE VOTERS following our dislike of the law.

    Roberts thinking is consistent with The Constitution means what we say it means today, crowd. Eg, look at consequences and if you don’t like them, change the meaning of the law without going through that whole dead white male non-multicultural amendment/revision process.

    Link to Forbes contributor instant analysis of Roberts’ first Ocare decision. In her analysis, she bolds 3 words; Remember: Words Matter. Well, apparently not. http://www.forbes.com/sites/kellyphillipserb/2012/06/28/when-is-a-penalty-a-tax-sorting-through-the-scotus-health-care-decision/

    Justice Scalia said it best in his dissent:

    “More importantly, the Court forgets that ours is a government of laws and not of men. That means we are governed by the terms of our laws, not by the unenacted will of our lawmakers. ‘If Congress enacted into law something different from what it intended, then it should amend the statute to conform to its intent.’ In the meantime, this Court ‘has no roving license … to disregard clear language simply on the view that … Congress ‘must have intended’ something broader.”

  9. strider says:

    The law is a hosing, ridiculous deductibles and premiums, Timely diagnosis and treatment compromised. Young people forced to pay. The court likes it.

  10. Maynard says:

    Oddly enough, I sort of expected this, because it seems the fix was in. I think the Republicans were scared to death that Obamacare would be upheld as written, in which case they’d feel pressured to “do something” about the subsequent Obamacare death spiral, lest they be blamed. So of course they’d have rushed to save Obama and Obamacare, and then weakly declare that they’d done the right thing while Obama smirked. And the criminality of Obamacare would be rendered more respectable. In consolation, I’m glad it didn’t happen that way. At least now we (those of us not immersed in denial) can see yet another act of blatant criminality on public display.

    One way or another, Obamacare will ultimately collapse, as will a lot of other parts of our governmental infrastructure. Our finances are obviously unbalanced and unsustainable, and everybody knows it. But most of the people in Washington are jockeying for position so as to personally benefit from the coming terrible crises, and few care about the fate of the American people. And too many of We the People want to believe Washington’s soothing words, even though we know they’re lies (Gruber had a point here; we’re not only stupid, but willfully stupid), and we sense government is out of control anyway. So we’ll shrug helplessly as we accelerate into the train wreck.

    What is there to do other than tend your garden? I don’t know.

  11. jmm says:

    I can’t listen, watch or read anymore! I have so much contempt for the Democrats and not to far behind the Republicans. I have lost faith in our government. The only thing that Obama has done for this country is to divide us. Oh…. the other gift is that we now know that the government corrupt beyond our wildest dreams. Guess what! all of those that we elected into office are looking the other way. Im having a multiple head explosions today!

    • Alain41 says:

      Understand jmm. I think what amplifies this disaster is the recent Republican ‘leadership’ passing unread TPA to set up Obama’s World Union. If we had true conservative opposition instead of liberal squish support, this ruling would have been easy to handle. This weekend, I’m going to give $5 to a number of the non-establishment candidates running (not Trump) and let them know it’s because the establishment is wrong.

    • Canonbal says:


      I totally agree with ya!


      Sorry not another dime out of my pocket for our “public servants”!!!!!

      I gave to 3 different conservative organizations approx $120 back in 2007. The Effing phone has not stopped ringing!!!!! ANYONE know how to block these calls other than changing the phone # ??? Got Frontier (forced to change from AT&T) service. (Don’t bother with dontcallme.gov, worthless.

  12. COL R says:

    Now more than ever we must demonstrate courage and press on. Nothing is truly lost unless you give up. Two quotes come to mind.

    “Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9

    “We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”
    Winston Churchill

  13. Maynard says:

    Today’s Taranto column in the WSJ, “SCOTUScare”, is worth reading. (It’s behind the paywall, but can be accessed by non-subscribers by Googling from a private browser session.)

  14. Alain41 says:

    It seems that Roberts views his role as making SCOTUS the Charitable Foundation for Curative and Institutional Care (which was the official name of the Nazi T4 program).

  15. Pat_S says:

    So now we have legislation too big to fail.

  16. Dave says:

    Corruption, corruption, every where.

  17. Teri says:

    The founding fathers gave us the second ammendment to defend against evil tyranny. We fought to the death in our revolution against Britain. That was the only way. I am hoping I am wrong but I think that may be how we have any chance to get America back. I feel the corruption and evil are beyond fair elections and I do not trust the elected officials who are in power. They will not take my guns away. I will not give them up. I’ll make sure I take a few of them out before they take me out. They are coming for our firearms next. I’ll bet my .45 Kimber and my S&W .45 revolver on it.
