This is an experiment to see if, when you put both speeches together in one blog post, the two guys will climb out of their boxes and start beating each other up…
Unfortunately, it appears as though they play nice so long as you're watching. But, take my word for it, as soon as you turn away, it's go-time.

I'm sad I'll never get the chance to experience Herman "Caincare". I bet there'd have been free penicillin shots and sexy pizza parties.

Millions of Americans unknowingly slipped through a wormhole in spacetime at some point during the night and awoke this morning in a universe which resembles the one they were familiar with in nearly all respects except for one crucial one: This is a universe in which the Affordable Care Act — or Obamacare — was not to be struck down in a 5-4 decision from the Supreme Court…
In a landmark decision that will impact the nation for decades, the Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a key provision of President Barack Obama's health care law, ruling that requiring people to have health insurance violates the Constitution…
* Court rules 5-4 to uphold individual mandate.
* Court says the requirement to have insurance is a tax, and is constitutional.
* Court says on Medicaid that the federal government may not take Medicaid from states that refuse to take part. (That is a limited ruling, without striking it down. In the ruling the court offered the government a way to remedy this potential problem.)
* Court vindicates, affirms Presidential and congressional power in an important issue like health care.
Chief Justice John Roberts was the swing vote in the decision, Kate Bolduan reports, joining Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
Good thing this was upheld, actually. Because in this universe, the common cold turns people into walruses.
