I’ve had a day now to reflect upon the decisions reached about Obamacare in the Supreme Court, a full 24 hours to read analysis and opinion about the ruling from both layperson and expert alike.
I’m not buying the arguments of those that are attempting to justify Chief Justice John Roberts’ bizarre splitting of the baby as a “finesse” ruling. The commerce clause was abused before this decision, and it will be abused against after this decision. The nuance of the Roberts court in it’s Obamacare decision is not going to reduce, or even slow this constitutional abuse.
Nor am buying that Obamacare can unilaterally be judged a tax after the fact by the Court when both the President and Congress so definitively argued against that very position in passing the law.
The only proper response to Obamacare was to strike it down entirely as gross congressional overreach. The fact is wasn’t concerns me greatly about the near-term future, and what drastic steps may be ahead in this nation’s future if the government is corrupted beyond reconciliation.
