OBAMACARE UPHELD Posted by Jammie on Jun 28, 2012 at 10:25 am 3 Responses to “OBAMACARE UPHELD” Guy Manningham on 28/28/12 at 11:17 am Obamacare is the worst bomb the government has dropped on Americans since Prohibition. Bend over, America. It’s time for your forcibly inserted medicine. Paladin on 28/28/12 at 11:21 am Not sure why people are surprised by the ruling, in interviews Obama said it wasn’t a tax; had he gone into the supreme court saying it wasn’t a tax, the thing would have been thrown out. However when defending it, they switched saying it was a tax, and the feds do have the power to implement taxes, though I wish not as deep as they can, but they can- so it was upheld. SO… Basically and unsurprisingly Obama lied, again. EBL on 28/28/12 at 12:29 pm I get Roberts is playing chess (at least Roberts thinks so) and that this decision is very Holmes-like. Yes it is nuanced and has limitations on the commerce clause and certainly on mandates. Yes it may help tip this election to Mitt Romney and may prompt Congress to do some heavy lifting for a change. Still, it is a grave disappointment. He could have gone with the dissent and still written the opinion he did. Rather he wanted to look independent and he is at his heart a Statist.
