The following is a transcript of remarks made by presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney regarding today's Supreme Court decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare).
As you might imagine, I disagree with the Supreme Court's decision and I agree with the dissent. What the Court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States. And that is I will act to repeal Obamacare.

Aircraft manufacturer Boeing Comany is the latest mega employer claiming the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) is part of why its employees will have to pay more for their medical benefits next year. In a letter mailed to employees late last week, Boeing said deductibles and copayments are going up significantly for some 90,000 non-union workers due in part to the effects of the new law. (source)

Who says conservatives don't have a sense of humor? A new tv ad produced by the Family Research Council Action PAC amusingly and effectively demonstrates how 'government on our backs' is a huge problem affecting everyone. The ad will be run against 5 specific Democrats who have supported "big health care, big bailouts and big debt" but it's applicable to so many more.

President Barack Obama trotted out a handful of people who have personally benefited from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) today and lamented that the obscenely expensive piece of legislation is only unpopular because he didn't talk about it enough. "Sometimes I fault myself for not being able to make the case more clearly to the country," he ruefully admitted. (source) What Mr. Obama refuses to acknowledge is that he talked more than enough; he just didn't listen.
