    What does the law say? This is easy. Don't $#@! it up.

    Kavanaugh spent an easy ten minutes in a harangue against the opposing lawyer twisting the clear language of the law, that it was a penalty, into a tax. But you idiotically blame Republicans but hold the dangerous, deceptive Kavanaugh and the duplicitous Roberts harmless. What is wrong with you?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    The law as written, passed and signed said it was a penalty.

    The dummies on the right cannot redefine a law.

    Kavanaugh and Roberts did this to us. No one else.

    If I was misled it was by Kavanaugh. There are transcripts of his ten-minute harangue where he twisted penalties into taxes. They were his repeated words. Kavanaugh cannot be trusted. He is a wolf in sheep's clothing.

    Whoever you are quoting is lying to you.

    Scalia did not win. The leftists won.

    Try to wrap your head around the facts. I know it is difficult. But try.

    Kavanaugh did his best to turn a penalty, written in the law as a penalty, into a tax. Kavanaugh broke the Constitution. Roberts did the same. If you like the unwillingness of a Justice to always follow the Constitution then Roberts and Kavanaugh are your guys, they are on your team. They will stab you in the back when they believe it is necessary.

Manchin has already said he will take it to town hall meetings. you know how that will go. Heitkamp doesn't intend to die politically for Chuckie boy. Donnelly doesn't intend to commit political suicide.
    Manchin may as well not waste his time taking it to town hall since we know how he's going to vote; the other two may not want to die for Chuckles but either way they'll come out on the losing side since the democrats in their district most likely won't support someone, who voted to confirm a judge who could change the face of the SCOTUS particularly when it came to Roe Vs. Wade.

    If I were the republicans, I'd be worried about Republicans Susan Collins (pro choice), Lisa Murkowski (pro choice), Rand Paul (libertarian views on government interference) and Shelly Moore Capito (Mix record on abortion) as possible no votes. I realize there are no guarantees on how people will vote, but it's interesting to compare the possibilities.
