Earlier this morning the US Supreme Court today declared that the legislative mandate that requires everyone to have health insurance is unconstitutional but that that a healthcare tax that provides the same thing is hunky dory.
This afternoon the US House of
Between running guns south of the border so millions of Mexican citizens are terrorized and hundreds murdered, promising free health care to every Tom, Dick and Harry, and then granting amnesty to 800,000 illegals, it appears Obama is trying to pressure the whole damn country to move north to America.
I'm exhausted, I don't know exactly how pissed off I should be.
BigFurHat has something to say that makes sense:
Reading some of the reactions from commenters around the blogosphere it is dawning on me that many people were waiting on a ruling from SCOTUS to decide on whether the apparatus of Obamacare – death panels, rationing, doctor choice, patient’s choices – were constitutional or not.
This was never the issue. These aspects of Obamacare are a DONE DEAL. It always was. That was never in question. The decision was whether they could force people into buying health insurance that would be subjected to the Obamacare apparatus or not.
SCOTUS was never going to say, “see these death panels? Unconstitutional.” It’s not what was before them.
The only thing they were asked was whether you can force someone into buying health insurance. They said, “no.”
They did, however, remind the government that it is perfectly legal to tax people. So that is exactly what they are going to do.
To all the people creating scenarios like, “what’s next, is the government going to force us to buy a smart car or be taxed for not doing so?”, I’d like to remind you that you are already being forced into buying Smart cars. you might not be behind the wheel of one, but you paid for it.
You BUY all sorts of government products that you would never willingly purchase, the purchase is hidden amongst the entirety of your yearly tax bill.
If it makes you feel any better, think of Obamacare as a $500 Pentagon hammer.
First, I'm gonna take a nap. Second, I'm gonna buy more ammo. And betyurass I'm voting this November.
