Romney has raised a lot of cash today. I just made a donation. You can too.
As of right now, the Romney campaign has raised over $1.5 million today:
Reaction to the Supreme Court opinion from around the web:
I linked to this yesterday but I want to be sure you see it. The Supreme Court decided that ObamaCare is a "tax." In fact, it's at least twenty new taxes.
Mitt Romney's response:
The stock market plummeted in the hour after the decision came down. When I was blogging this morning the market was at -135.51. It's now at -156.78.
Professor Glenn Reynolds:
I do expect a lot of re-energization among Tea Party folks who had perhaps grown a bit complacent.
Via The Foundry, the Senate may consider repeal through reconciliation:
The thread at Memeorandum grows.
I'm not surprised by today's ruling. I noted previously (somewhere around here) that the Court's decision on Arizona's SB 1070 was a warning against premature football-spiking. Chief Justice John Roberts, I suspect, is being extremely careful about preserving the institutional legitimacy of the Court --- and by extension, the legacy of "the natural court" under his leadership.
Though Obama and the Democrats have won the day, given the lack of popularity of the health care law (two thirds of Americans wanted the Supreme Court to overturn at least some part of the law), in just a few months they may very well look back and view this time as the moment that was the last straw for voters and the end of the president’s re-election hopes. We’ll see.
And be sure to read the reaction at NRO:
The Court has failed to do its duty. Conservatives should not follow its example — which is what they would do if they now gave up the fight against Obamacare. The law, as rewritten by judges, remains incompatible with the country’s tradition of limited government, the future strength of our health-care system, and the nation’s solvency. We are not among those who are convinced that we will be stuck with it forever if the next election goes wrong: The law is also so poorly structured that we think it may well unravel even if put fully into effect.
That's good advice. Take heart and keep fighting. Stronger than ever.
Check out the 2012 Senate races. We need to take the Senate.
The sleeping giant awakes.
