Another Reason To Declare Independence from Obamacare SCOTUS Disaster

Obama's supporters don't care whether this abomination is a tax or whether it's called a tax. They'll support him and it in any case. This incoherent ruling may fire up Obama's opponents, who'd oppose him regardless of the name given to Obamacare. But it probably won't push many undecided voters off the fence. Anyone who was undecided the day before the ruling is probably in a coma. But SCOTUS has given Congress a certain means of compelling any behavior it pleases without getting bogged down in that messy commerce clause: just attach a fine, which is now officially a tax. Now Congress can literally make you do anything without fear of unconstitutionality. In short, this was a big loss of freedom with no political upside.

D'accord, 'Seawolf'; Roberts played it brilliantly not only by getting the four liberals to publicly call it a tax (boy howdy, they have to be kicking themselves now) but by issuing a Marbury-style dictum about rolling back Commerce Clause arrogations.

As for people who don't "pay into the pot", I have been one of them for 14 years as I explain on; I obey the Tax Code and make my IRS employees obey it, too. If you "pay into the pot" out of ignorance or complicity, that's your own fault.

I hope that your perfect scenario plays out.

All true Matt,in fact most don't pay a dime into the pot anyway, but at least congress will have to DECLARE it a tax and not be allowed to slide it through like this clown did. Remember also, congress can remove taxes, give Mitt the folks he needs to unwind this and perhaps they will become emboldened to unwind a lot more. My perfect scenarion would be someone pledging to get back to Madisonian principles and destroy this entire nanny is all unconstitutional.

Many have weighed in on the Supreme Court decision on ObamaCare much better than I could. Two of the best were Rush Limbaugh’s and Mark Levin (download the June 28th show for free and share it widely). But a few things remain unmentioned as far as I can tell.

First, the SCOTUS decision means the low-income uninsured won’t likely see any change to their status.

How is that? How can a law designed in large part to help the poor obtain insurance, a law that taxes and spends so much, end up...
