ACA, or Obamacare upheld

This is an initial response.  I'm not an attorney, so others will analyze the details, but here's what I'm gathering from the coverage I'm hearing.

President Obama has brought to pass his dream of fundamental change. America is no longer exceptional:  we're just like every other socialist country now.

People are talking about a repeal of the law by a Romney administration, but they seem to think it's that easy.

The President can't simply repeal things.  At least, a president who pretends to abide by the Constitution can't.  Romney would have to have the support of majorities in both houses of Congress to repeal the ACA.   He'd probably need a filibuster-proof supermajority in the Senate.  I don't mean to be pessimistic, but I don't see that happening.  

Don't give up.  Get out and vote, get your friends registered and to the polls, but I think we've lost this one, along with the Constitution.
