With today’s Supreme Court ruling, upholding Obamacare as Constitutional, the American People have LOST their individual sovereignty.
By allowing the federal government to MANDATE the American people purchase a good or service under the TAX code and not the Commerce Clause…The Federal Government now has a clear and unhindered path to MANDATE the purchase of ANYTHING any administration deems appropriate!!
The THREAT that the federal government would REMOVE ALL MEDICARE FUNDING from individual states should they OPT OUT of Obamacare HAS BEEN FOUND UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!
Does this mean that the High Court has ruled that individual states WILL be allowed to OPT OUT OF OBAMACARE ALTOGETHER? That much is unclear.
ONE THING THAT IS CRYSTAL CLEAR IS, BECAUSE OF THIS RULING, IF YOU DON’T BUY HEALTH INSURANCE, THE IRS WILL BE COMING FOR YOU!!!!!
Without the ability to OPT OUT by the states, the ONLY conclusion which can be drawn from this ruling is…
Should both the House and the Senate be in control of any one party and ESPECIALLY if that party ALSO controls the White House…a law could be passed MANDATING the purchase of a good or service, whether existing or created BY that administration, regardless of what it might be so long as any penalty for NOT purchasing it is through TAXATION!!!
At this point, the ONLY way to stop this is through full REPEAL by Congress.
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
This puts even MORE emphasis upon the need to hold the House and RETAKE the Senate in November!!!
In the dissenting opinions, Obamacare was deemed UNCONSTITUTIONAL not only from the aspect of the mandate BUT IN ITS ENTIRETY!!!
Here is the bottom line concerning congressional repeal:
REPEAL WOULD ONLY RID THE NATION OF OBAMACARE BUT IT WOULD NOT…REPEAT, NOT…DISALLOW SUCH LEGISLATION CONCERNING HEALTHCARE OR ANY OTHER GOOD OR SERVICE IN THE FUTURE SO LONG AS IT COMES UNDER TAXATION!!!!!
Obamacare, which drove the 2010 midterm election by giving birth to and becoming the clarion call of the Tea Party will NOW become the object of the sword carried by conservatives into the November 2012 election!!!
With the entitlement mentality and the ideology of bigger government being the answer to all ill of the liberal/socialist Obama administration…Today’s Supreme Court ruling provides a wide open door to increase spending, taxes and social(ist) programs.
Given another 4 years, it is impossible to comprehend the scope of what they may do next. AND, LET’S BE CLEAR…WHILE JUSTICE GINSBERG, TODAY, MADE IT CLEAR IN HER WRITTEN OPINION, THE COURT SHOULD HAVE UPHELD OBAMACARE UNDER THE COMMERCE CLAUSE…WHOEVER HOLDS THE OVAL OFFICE IN THE NEXT 4 YEARS, MOST LIKELY WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO APPOINT 1 AND POSSIBLY 2 NEW SUPREME COURT JUSTICES!!!
Should that be Obama…ONE CAN CLEARLY BELIEVE HE WOULD APPOINT THOSE WHO FEEL AS DOES GINSBERG!!!
Had Obamacare been upheld under the Commerce Clause…THERE WOULD BE NO OPT OUT POSSIBLE BY THE STATES AVAILABLE AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD THEN HAVE THE ABILITY TO IMPOSE UPON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE…ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING!!!
THIS IS EXACTLY WHY IT BECOME EVEN MORE IMPORTANT TODAY THAT ALL…ALL CONSERVATIVES COALESCE BEHING THE NOMINEE RATHER THAN SPLIT THE VOTE BY WRITING IN OTHER CHOICES!!!
Mitt Romney has stated that should the Supreme Court uphold, which they have now done, Obamacare, HE would act on day ONE to provide waivers to every individual state, pressure Congress to vote a FULL repeal of Obamacare AND urge Congress to put forth legislation to provide a long term and less costly fix employing what has been seen by many as the good parts of Obamacare without the overburden of penalties and what we now know to be TAXES foisted upon the American People.
While many conservatives fear Romneycare being no different than Obamacare, Romney HIMSELF has stated there are parts OF Romneycare he would NOT want again either for his state OR for the nation.
TO BE CLEAR…IT WILL BE UP TO CONGRESS TO CRAFT SUCH LEGISLATION…NOT A PRESIDENT ROMNEY!!!
Therefore…WE MUST CHOOSE WISELY WHO WE SEND TO CONGRESS IN NOVEMBER SO AS TO ACHIEVE THE FULL REPEAL OF OBAMACARE AND THE CAREFUL CRAFTING OF ANY FUTURE HEALTHCARE LEGISLATION!!!
Economically speaking…Today’s ruling clears the path for THE LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN AMERICAN HISTORY.
This too will play into the November election as conservatives should, no doubt, be OUTRAGED that during such a prolonged economic slump, at a time of such high unemployment and while the national debt has already soared to historic levels…The Democrat, liberal/socialist party has now been cleared to enact THE SINGLE LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN OUR 236 YEAR HISTORY!!!
The question we must ask is clear:
WILL WE, AS CONSERVATIVES, ALLOW ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF THIS SOCIALIST, ENTITLEMENT AND BIG GOVERNMENT IDEOLOGY TO CONTINUE TO INTRUDE ON THE SOVEREIGNTY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OR…WILL WE THE PEOPLE ACT, IN A COHESIVE MANNER THIS NOVEMBER, TO RETAKE OUR NATION AND RECLAIM THE LIMITED SCOPE OF GOVERNMENT OUR FOUNDERS NOT ONLY ENVISIONED BUT USED AS THE VERY FOUNDATION UPON WHICH OUR NATION WAS BUILT???
Any vote in November for anyone OTHER than the GOP nominee is a direct vote for LESS freedom, LESS liberty, LESS sovereignty and FOR bigger government, MORE entitlements, HIGHER taxes and SOCIALISM.
