"Thank you [Supreme Court]. This ‘Obamacare' ruling fires up the troops as America's eyes are opened! Thank God," said Palin via an e-mail to this producer. "We will not retreat on this."
Sarah Palin could not be more right on! Bloggers. voters, commentators, voters on the center, the moderates, and paleos, neo, and cultural conservatives will come together in full force to elect Romeny and repeal this mendacious individual mandate monster.
The Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, employing judicial finesse on par with Marbury v Madison, has ruled ObamaCare constitutional based on an argument repeatedly rejected by the White House and Democratic leadership during the long and torturous passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. As a tax, Congress had the authority to initiative the mandate for citizens to purschase their own healthcare or face a penalty.
The Constitution once again has regained prominence in the national consciousness, specifically regarding the true intent of the document: to the limit the role of the federal government to its enumerated powers.
"Are you serious? Are you serious?" The disingenous former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi petulantly retorted at one reporter regarding the legal and constitutional basis for the individual mandate, one which would have eviscerated the Commerce Clause and permitted the United States Congress to regulate the buy, sell, and trade behavior of the American people regarding almost everything.
See, Obama promised the American people this wasn't a tax and he'd never raise taxes on anyone making less than $200k. We now see this is the largest tax increase in history. It will slam every business owner and every one of the 50% of Americans who currently pay their taxes. The other 50% are being deceived if they think they're going to get a free ride - because Medicaid is broke."
The American people must engage the serious argument about the proper and role and necessary limitations of revenue increases. Half the people cannot bear the fiscal burden of caring for the other half. Businesses cannot carry the the responsibity for statehouses which, in refusing to guaranatee a sound financial system for state residents, have resorted time and again to hitting up wealth creators for a larger portion of their dwindling profits, cutting away at their anemic profit margins altogether.
The state cannot give anyone anything, but only take from one group to dispense to another. Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security are all dashing toward insolvency, and the growing class of dependents in this country will have to accept that they easy taking and no-giving will just have to go.
