Supreme Court Health Care Ruling Inspires Creative Vitriol


Former Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio, couldn't contain her emotion when she heard about the decision, only, it was the wrong decision. Schmidt is seen reacting to the false reports that the individual mandate had been overturned in one of the most embarrassing videos to have hit the Internet amid Thursday's news.

Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., compared Obamacare to a cancer in statements made outside of the Supreme Court after the ruling: "Today America is threatened with a stage-three cancer of socialism, and Obamacare is the first symptom."

And perhaps whatever personal relationship existed between Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., and Chief Justice John Roberts suffered a blow. "I don't want to drink a beer with him today," Gingrey said of Roberts. "I'm not calling for his impeachment, I'm just very, very disappointed."
