Did Justice Roberts 'Do good?'
He "did good" according to a conservative analysis of the ruling. The emerging train of thought celebrates Roberts's majority putting limits on how our electeds may use the "Commerce Clause" to compel certain behavior.
Democrats still own Obamacare, it's still unpopular with the majority, and now Democrats own the massive tax increase they forced upon the middle class all by themselves. The SCOTUS holding Dems accountable for raising our taxes(when they repeatedly lied and said the Obamacare mandate wasn't a tax) works for me.
FTA: "There is now a formal United States Supreme Court opinion on the books, overdue by nearly a century, holding that the federal government may not wield the Commerce Clause to impose on American citizens the obligation to buy health insurance or anything else we do not want. An American cannot be compelled by federal mandate to eat or even to buy a proverbial stalk of broccoli. As a kosher consumer, the federal government cannot wield that clause to impose on me an obligation to purchase non-kosher food supplements. The rules guiding lower-court wrestling matches over federal power to invade Americans' private lives now have been reset remarkably by Chief Justice Roberts. Few today notice what he has done. Long after many of us are gone, this 5-4 opinion finally setting limits on the reach of the Commerce Clause will continue to affect American lives and protect private citizens from Washington's intrusions."
The writer goes on to say that those of us who aren't law school grads can be excused for not immediately recognizing what Roberts did for us with the majority opinion.
Turns out Democrats DID have the constitutional right to shove Obamacare and their massive tax increase down our throats!
And I can happily live with that.
Because public anger over having Obamacare shoved down their throats was what election 2010 was all about. There's plenty more on tap for Democrats and their little top-down dictatorship where 2010 came from.
Can't wait for Dems to deny Obama ever lied. As if he never promised folks making less than $250,000 he wasn't going to raise their taxes.
I'm off to donate a little cash to Mitt Romney. I forget... how many millions did he rake in after yesterday's ruling? LOL!
Congratulations, Democrats. You won again!!!
See ya'all at the polls.
