To redefine a fine (punishment for failure to conform) as a tax (a general revenue measure applied equally and indiscriminately across a whole class of transactions, e.g., income, sales, etc.) is to hand the central government unfettered power to enforce whatever it deems necessary at the moment. Both Remocrats and Depublicans will resort to it over time to enforce behavior each finds essential to the health of the polity as they see it at the time. The fact that this decision requires 200 pages shows why enlightenment intellectuals distrusted lawyers--they are too clever by half. It is no coincidence that most politicians were once lawyers. My advice: tax them to oblivion.

I've come to the conclusion that no lawyer should ever be allowed to hold any public office whatsoever, especially not as a judge.
Just about everyone in Washington was wrong about what the Supreme Court would do yesterday on the Obamacare case. Well, we were sort of right but in the end we were wrong.

First of all the official title of the case is:

NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT BUSINESS ET AL. v. SEBELIUS, SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, ET AL.

Who knew that? Put your hand down, you didn't know it until today, either.

I, along with everyone else, believed the Court would rule the Individual Mandate to be an Unconstitutional extension...
