    The SCOTUS did not approve a “mandate tax”
    They simply ruled that it was a tax...one of the big arguments in the case was if the mandate was a penalty or a tax.
    The SCOTUS simply ruled that it was a tax. They are prohibited from making a ruling on the Consitutionality of the tax by the Anti-Injunction Act until the tax is actually imposed (which will be in 2014).
    They kicked the can down the road.

    I want single-payer, or some other universal option, as well.

    some of the Tweets from people upset with this are entertaining...

    "I'm moving to Canada, the United States is entirely too socialist"

    "The supreme court upheld Obama Care. That's it. I'm moving to Canada!"

    "Individual mandate upheld, this fudging ridiculous. I'm marrying a Canadian n moving to Canada"

    "#SCOTUS holds up free healthcare for everyone?! Screw this commie country, I'm moving to #Canada #whoswithme"


    do you think we should tell them?

    Don't tell 'em, Rou. If they're that uninformed, leave them alone for the rest of us to giggle at.

    Nope. Read the ruling:
    1. CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS delivered the opinion of the Court with
    respect to Part II, concluding that the Anti-Injunction Act does not
    bar this suit.
    The Anti-Injunction Act provides that “no suit for the purpose of
    restraining the assessment or collection of any tax shall be maintained in any court by any person,” 26 U. S. C. §7421(a), so that those
    subject to a tax must first pay it and then sue for a refund. The present challenge seeks to restrain the collection of the shared responsibility payment from those who do not comply with the individual
    mandate. But Congress did not intend the payment to be treated as
    a “tax” for purposes of the Anti-Injunction Act. The Affordable Care
    Act describes the payment as a “penalty,” not a “tax.” That label
    cannot control whether the payment is a tax for purposes of the Constitution, but it does determine the application of the Anti-Injunction
    Act. The Anti-Injunction Act therefore does not bar this suit. Pp. 11–

    In other words, (from Scotusblog):
    Before reaching the merits of the Affordable Care Act case, the Supreme Court held that that Anti-Injunction Act (AIA) – a statute that bars suits to restrain the collection of taxes – does not apply to suits challenging the individual mandate.

    I want to think these may be people who are trying to be ironic/humorous ....

    But then again, I may be seriously overestimating the intelligence of the average person with a Twitter account.

    My boss is super conservative and he was just cursing up a storm today.

    I have to say I was quite nervous. Justice Thomas' opinion was basically an I told you so...it said basically the Court's interpretation of law in the past is what caused this outcome. Too funny, it amounted to approximately 4 sentences.

    Glad it passed, a step in the right direction. Hello movement to community ratings!!!

    My conservative friends are strangely quiet. It reminds me if the day after Obama was elected, like shock or something. They were so confident this would be overturned!

    I know, many were so sure. Cocky even. Oh well, too bad, so sad, I'm glad.

    So all those states who have sat on their assets since 2010 need to get up and get to work. Stop playing games and do the right for the people and not just themselves or corporations for a change. I'm interested to see how Romney spins this! Get the popcorn ready.

    He's going to overturn it his first day in office. I heard him say that with my own ears!

    You know, speaking only for the Republicans that I know on FB that are friends and acquaintances of mine, I don't think it's wrong at all. They have been posting truly vile stuff about Obama for three years and yesterday they really WERE having a conniption fit, so no, I don't fee like it's wrong.
