In a truly unexpected 5-4 decision with Chief Justice Roberts leading the way the Supreme Court ruled President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, and its hotly contested individual mandate, was indeed constitutional. While the last 2 years were filled with court challenges and rampant questionable claims over the bill’s intent, the administration and the Democrats need to decide what to do now. Mitt Romney and the Republican Party have already taken up a steadfast “repeal and replace” position. But what about the Democrats? Now that the constitutionality of the law is no longer in question, they have what amounts to a second chance to wrest control of the conversation from the GOP and tell the voting public what is actually in the bill.

Have a great evening!
HAVE A GREAT EVENING!
I’m almost always optimistic.
But this year, one thing’s sure to turn my mood dour: The nightmarish thought of Republicans winning the presidency or more of our Democratic governorships.
It’ll be reality if we don’t snap out of it. Scott Walker‘s escape in Wisconsin should serve as a lesson. They’ll win when they outspend us 10-to-1.
We’ve been warned — now we’ve gotta fight back. Our country desperately needs Democratic leadership. Give what you can right now to help the DGA meet its end-of-quarter goal. They have just $32,640 left to get there.
With one day left, you have to give now for us to win.
In all eight states where we’re protecting governorships, we can win. No doubt about it.
And we have to. It’s the only way to protect middle-class families from taking the hit for billionaires’ tax breaks. It’s how we’ll make gains in education and job training programs, and protect women and voters from attack.
Make no mistake: It’s going to be hard. New Hampshire, North Carolina and Washington — these are critical swing states. The polls show we’re either tied or right around the margin of error. These puppies are close.
So we’ve all got to come together right now. A drop at a time will fill a bucket. That means anything you can give will make a difference.
We’ve won close elections in tough places — like Kentucky and West Virginia — so I know we can do it. But everyone has to help. We still need $32,640 by June 30 to have what we need to go forward. There’s just one day left. Will you give now?
Take a stand, now, before the deadline. So much is riding on it.
