Since SCOTUS found the mandate unconstitutional under the commerce clause, it limits the government in what it can do with regard to commerce. However, the mandate was approved as a tax, exploding and enshrining the government’s right to tax us into oblivion.
SCOTUS ruled today that the government can now tax us for NOT DOING SOMETHING! For example, they can tell us to buy Chevy Volts and tax us if we don’t.
We are on the Titanic, but, thanks to Justice Roberts, the faux conservative, we are not on the lower deck, we are on the upper deck without a lifeboat.
We already have social security and Medicare breaking the bank and we now have another socialist program based on a failed model.
President Obama just levied the largest tax increase this country has known and it affects everyone, including the middle class. If raising taxes, despite promises not to, cost H.W. Bush his job, can we expect the same for B.H. Obama?
Obama verbally intimidated the SCOTUS while they were deliberating and his threats were directed at Chief Justice John Roberts. One has to wonder if there is a connection but we will never know.
“It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices,” Roberts said in his decision. If you want to drop Justice Roberts a note or call to express your opinion about this (not that he cares), click here.
The Obama administration argued that Obamacare was not a tax and then they argued before the Supreme Court it was a tax, all the while Obama was telling the American public that he was not raising taxes.
