Well…He tried, didn’t he?
The EMPEROR tried and tried and TRIED to convince us all that Obamacare was NOT a tax.
He said it and said it.
The EMPEROR told us it wasn’t a tax and he told us and TOLD us that under Obamacare…NOBODY would be taxed a SINGLE DIME.
The EMPEROR started telling us that the day he started the process and he KEPT telling us that it was not a tax right up to the very day his Solicitor General made the argument before the Supreme Court that…oh yes…It WAS a tax.
Then, last Thursday, in their ruling, The Supreme Court and the deciding Justice who wrote the opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts, made sure that we all knew, once and for all, that…
Obamacare IS a TAX and the only reason it is Constitutional is BECAUSE it’s a TAX.
So much for the high fives in the oval office.
“DOH…IT’S A TAX!!!!!”
According to the tweet of DNC Executive Director, Patrick Gaspard…
“It’s Constitutional. Bitches.”
He forgot to add…
“It’s a TAX. Bitches.”
The obvious reason that the Emperor tried and tried so hard and told us and told us over and over that Obamacare was NOT a TAX is because he didn’t want to preside over THE LARGEST TAX INCREASE IN AMERICAN HISTORY while the economy was tanking, the unemployment rate was soaring and while he was running the national debt to epic levels.
That’s the OBVIOUS reason.
The less obvious but MAYBE even more important reason…And one might well suspect more dire reason for why, NOW, the Emperor, his administration, liberal/socialists in the House and Senate and liberal/socialist pundits everywhere are trying so hard to convince us all, that despite the Supreme Court ruling…
Obamacare is…once again…NOT a TAX…is this:
As a TAX…it should NOT be allowed to stand NOR should it have been passed at all.
TAX bills…CONSTITUTIONALLY…must ORIGINATE in the HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES!!!!
Let’s just have a peek at…
Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution:
“All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.”
Obamacare was written…Originated in…THE SENATE!!!!!
Let’s be fair…Obamacare is not “A” tax…
IT’S 21 NEW TAXES!!!
Of the 21 new taxes in Obamacare…12 of them directly take aim at the middle class and didn’t the EMPEROR tell us ALL that he would NOT…MOST DEFINITELY NOT…raise taxes on the middle class?
Well, of course he did.
Now…THINK about this…
Obamacare was written in the SENATE…behind closed doors.
It was then taken over to the HOUSE where Nancy Pelosi so famously told EVERYBODY it HAD to be passed to find out what was IN it. NOBODY WAS ALLOWED TO READ IT BEFORE THEY PASSED IT!!!
Because HAD the Members of the HOUSE read it FIRST…The House Ways and Means Committee…THOSE TASKED WITH THE CONSTRUCTION AND WRITING OF TAX LEGISLATION…would have realized it was a…TAX bill…CONTAINING 21 NEW TAXES…That THEY did NOT construct or write and even under the control of the liberal/socialists majority of the House…
THEY WOULD HAVE COME UNHINGED!!!
They would have come unhinged first because THEY are supposed to be the ones writing such legislation and second because not even THEY thought hiking taxes at that point, let alone creating 21 NEW taxes…Was anywhere NEAR a good idea heading into the 2010 midterm elections!!!
After it was passed in the House without being read…off it went to the Senate where it was also passed without being read because…had liberal/socialist SENATORS discovered it created 21 NEW taxes…THEY WOULD NOT HAVE PASSED IT EITHER!!!
Yes…the Emperor threw his own party directly under the bus.
The Emperor LIED to the American people AND to those in his OWN party in Congress to get what HE wanted…
SOCIALIZED HEALTHCARE AND THE BIGGEST TAX HIKE IN AMERICAN HISTORY!!!
One can easily suspect that within 24 hours of Obamacare being passed in the House…the Ways and Means committee discovered the issue but…at that point, it was both too late AND would be a major embarrassment to their Emperor to make a federal case of it.
NOW however…Now that the Supreme Court has declared Obamacare a TAX and…With the Ways and Means Committee in the hands of Republicans…
Should the UNconstitutionality OF having a TAX bill originate in the Senate , at the very least, be examined?
Should somebody tell Biden that THIS could well be a BIG F***ING DEAL???
Are there any loophole through which such a thing could escape?
It will take those with a much deeper knowledge of such things to determine the statutes regarding this.
Paul Ryan and Newt Gingrich to the Conservative Courtesy Phone Please…Paul Ryan and Newt Gingrich to the Conservative Courtesy Phone!!!
Any way you look at it now…The EMPEROR, from now to the November election…Has to OWN the FACT that Obamacare IS 21 NEW TAXES and he’s going to have to defend that notion.
The House should start, immediately, looking into the possibility that because it originated in the Senate, it could well be null and void.
If the Emperor INSISTS it’s NOT a TAX bill…It’s UNconstitutional under the Commerce Clause.
If he agrees that it IS a TAX bill…It’s UNconstitutional under Article 1 Section 7.
With NO due respect to Gaspar OR the liberal/socialist element who levied 21 new taxes upon a lied to populous…
“Ain’t taxes a BITCH…BITCHES?”
