With the Obama administration today announcing a compromise on the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive coverage mandate, it looks like we might never know what’s in it. It turns out thousands of pages weren’t really necessary after all, as these Twitter users have managed to capture the essence of Obamacare in only five words.

      When the SC ruled in the Dred Scott case that blacks weren’t people and were always meant to be property, was that settled law and the end of the story?

      Are you familiar with the Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson (1896)? It ruled that segregated public facilities were Constitutional as long as they were “separate but equal.” That was the law of the land for almost 60 years, until it was undone by another Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education (1954).

      Supreme Court cases are not guaranteed to be permanent.

      Actually that was Speaker Pelosi.

        Not that this makes him right with whatever stupid point he was trying to make, but michael s was referring to the post-election interview where Boehner responded to a question about repealing the ACA by saying “It’s the law of the land.”

        • Matthew Koch

          We know. Boehner’s a weakling, just because he doesn’t want to fight back, it won’t mean the rest of us are turtling too.

    I can sum it up — or others summed it up — in just two words, although those two words require some slight backstory:

    This is sickening. Why are there tiers of plans, Platinum, Gold, Silver? Who in the heck would afford a $20K year plan? What does that even get you being the lowest tiered plan? What a disgrace. The Congress must have the Dilithium plan.
