THE SUPREME COURT RULING ON OBAMACARE
On June 28, 2012 the Supreme Court of the United States of America ruled by a 5-4 vote that ObamaCare, known by its legislative bill name Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, is constitutional. The majority opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts, who went left on the issue and concocted quite a twist of logic to support Barack Hussein Obama's goal of government-imposed health care for Americans. The dissenting opinion was written by Justice Anthony Kennedy. Succinctly, it says:
“The act is invalid in its entirety.”
Chief Justice Roberts wrote, “The Affordable Care Act is constitutional in part and unconstitutional in part. The individual mandate cannot be upheld as an exercise of Congress’s power under the Commerce Clause. That Clause authorizes Congress to regulate interstate commerce, not to order individuals to engage it. In this case, however, it is reasonable to construe what Congress has done as increasing taxes on those who have a certain amount of income, but choose to go without health insurance. Such legislation is within Congress’s power to tax.” The quintessence is that the federal mandate is not a real mandate. It is a tax. All of the lower courts except the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals said that the federal mandate was a mandate and not a tax.1 “The Federal Government does not have the power to order people to buy health insurance. Section 5000A (of the Affordable Care Act) would therefore be unconstitutional if read as a command. The Federal Government does have the power to impose a tax on those without health insurance. Section 5000A is therefore constitutional, because it can reasonably be read as a tax. ... The Affordable Care Act’s requirement that certain individuals pay a financial penalty for not obtaining health insurance may reasonably be characterized as a tax. Because the Constitution permits such a tax, it is not our role to forbid it, or to pass upon its wisdom or fairness.” This is the scapegoat twist in logic that Chief Justice Roberts invented to allow him to vote in favor of ObamaCare's being constitutional.
Ergo: ObamaCare is a tax, which is what Obama said it would never be! LIE!2 Are you surprised? Don't be! Be angry! Show you anger on November 6, 2012.
This author's initial thoughts on the matter are:
I wonder: What information for blackmail does Obama have on Chief Justice Roberts? There are some very unusual matters that connect him to Obama and vice-versa.
ThereistheprivatevisitObamamadetotheSupremeCourt,inreality, Chief Justice Roberts, before Obama became the occupier of the Oval Office. As far as history books can recollect, this is the first time that a not-yet inaugurated President made a private visit to the Supreme Court before his inauguration. Was Barack Hussein Obama reaching the Chief Justice? The American public should know the reasons for such a visit.
