A Couple Things to Ponder on This Banner Day of The SCOTUS Rewriting Law
When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. - Thomas Jefferson
In the last 3 1/2 years I have accumulated "dots" with this administration and its wonks in the democrat party. Eventually dots connect for a full picture.
Here are few dots that have been running on a loop within my mind since this morning's SCOTUS ruling on ObamaCare after Justice Roberts and the four leftists on the high court rewrote the "law" for the Legislative Branch.
Now that the SCOTUS has deemed the mandate is a tax (and during the ObamaCare hearing arguments heard by the SCOTUS last March this fact was still in question by the defender of the law himself)...
There are those who, for years, have said the IRS has grown and taken on far too much control and power since its inception, and should be, at the very least, scaled way back if not abolished. The SCOTUS's ruling today has given Obama the legacy of having imposed the largest tax-hike in history on the American people. It will have to be enforced...
Now I am hearing talking heads in the MSM saying Mitt Romney and the republicans won't and shouldn't try to use this as a keystone in the coming election(s) ... That the voters are more concerned with the economy and jobs and will be turned-off.
You "voters" that do not think today's SCOTUS ruling on ObamaCare has anything to do with the economy and jobs are clueless.
You current (or currently in school) medical professionals that do not think today's SCOTUS ruling on ObamaCare will have an effect on your (future) practice/career are clueless.
As a side note, today's reasoning behind the ruling has pretty much opened a Pandora's Box for the U.S. government to regulate and tax whatever it wants to tax in our lives.
Looks like I'm not the only one. Uh huh...
“Our freedom of choice just met its death panel: the Supreme Court of the United States ... Obamacare is nothing more than the largest tax increase in the history of the world ... And the people who were characterizing it as such were right and were telling the truth. We have the biggest tax increase in the history of the world right in the middle of one of this country’s worst recessions ... What has been upheld here is fraud, and the Internal Revenue Service has just become Barack Obama’s domestic army."
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. - Thomas Jefferson
