SCOTUS Rules in Favor of Tax

Published by:

Not Perfect

Well, proof of my infallibility exists. SCOTUS decided yesterday a couple of things, but in doing so, let stand the affordable health care act.

Although President nObama and his strong arm thugs called the fine a “penalty” SCOTUS held this penalty is a tax after all.┬áThe court changed the intent of the law in order to preserve it and since they rightly held this was an overreach of the commerce clause.

It is hard to say a split decision between ideologies is a political motivation. I can see, although disagree with Chief Justice Roberts’ line of thought. I do agree with one point in the majority opinion that SCOTUS did not debate the rationality of the law. Their opinon went so far as to state people could use their vote to correct a constitutionally passed, yet horribly flawed law. My mind comes back to prohibition and its subsequent repeal.

Implications for the future

Try though they might, I do not think this win for the dems will give them much solace. The future is now even more critical and the only way this monstrosity can be overturned will come if the Senate falls back to Republican control with 60 Senators, thereby destroying dirty Harry’s only chance at preserving it as is. People should also think about this. SCOTUS Justice Ruth Vader Ginsberg is near death (or else she looks like it). The next presidential term will likely see one or two SCOTUS justices and we can ill afford to have nObama picking those winners and losers.

I can only hope that the 60% of people who hate this law will be enraged enough to mobilize and drag out their family, friends and neighbors and vote out all of the taxes this law imposes on everyone except those who got preferential treatment and payoffs for their support of the largest tax in American history.

nObamaCare likely to fail in entirety.

Published by:

nObamaCare to go down in flames today. Logic holds that if the Justices of SCOTUS find the mandate unconstitutional they must strike down the entire law since no severability clause existsin the law as passed.

Word has it that nObama has prepared three speeches to give based on the results. I am guessing here, but I think he has one to go after SCOTUS (look for BS emails from his campaign to follow immediately…) as right wing if they strike down the law, One to promote SCOTUS as a bastion of critical thought if the uphold it, and one, which Joe Biden will give that will be as inconsequential as his Vice-Presidency…. but he will say that it is still, “a big F@*king Deal!”

If the law is overturned (as it should be, I agree with ‘Ole Joe. It is a big deal, a big waste of tax payer money to fight what common sense should have told us was a bad thing. It should also be a lesson as to what happens when you give that much power to liberals. “Never Again,” may be too soon to entreat another foray into such a political arrangement.

Here’s to hoping SCOTUS gets this one done proper.

Obama Admin leaving AZ Law Dogs in a Lurch

The SCOTUS ruling yesterday must have ticked of President Obama’s troops yesterday as, within hours of the ruling, pulled all cooperative enforcement agreements with the border state.

This means that previous arrangements whereby the federal authorities were engaged in programs designed to compliment and work with local and state authorities on cracking down on illegal immigration will now be suspended in the wake of SCOTUS ruling to retain the cornerstone piece of the law.
