ObamaCare Ruling: Washington Overrules the Constitution and the American People. Again – Tea Party Nation
June 28, 2012 1 Comment
For the American people, the Constitution means a great deal. For Washington, we were once again today reminded that the Constitution means very little.
Five Supreme Court Justices today decided to not impartially rule on the case – i.e. execute their solemn Constitutional charge. They instead decided to serve as five more ObamaCare lawyers – and create a brand new argument to unConstitutionally “justify” the ObamaCare mandate.
Team ObamaCare never argued before the Supreme Court that the individual mandate was a tax. The President and Team ObamaCare rigorously asserted it wasn’t a tax. There is twenty pages in the ObamaCare law that says it is a not a tax, but a nebulous power nebulously given to Congress by the abused and stretched-beyond-Reality Commerce Clause.
So where did these five Supreme Court Justices find this ObamaCare mandate “tax” “justification?” Only in their own fevered minds.
The Supreme Court today propped up the unConstitutional ObamaCare law by lending it the now further tarnished imprimatur of Supreme Court approval. It is in November again up to the American people to remind Washington that the Constitution matters. And that we are a nation of laws, not of men taking egregious liberties with their Constitutional charges.
