I’ll be honest. I haven’t read the decision on “Obamacare” by the Supremes. I left that to my lawyer acquaintances. I read the spin with disgust and dismay. I usually read pending legislation before opining, but c’mon, so much has been made of this thus far that it doesn’t really take a rocket scientist to figure out what would, hence did happen. The Supremes backed forced-purchase. The decision pivoted on the idea that the mandate “was justified as a tax. Because people who don’t obtain insurance pay a tax to the IRS, the mandate was within Congress’s power to raise taxes for the general welfare. As a result, the Affordable Care Act was upheld.”
Got that? Its ok because its ALWAYS ok to tax the poor more. If you can’t afford to directly pay the Insurance Companies, the Government will make you pay it as a tax and give it to the mother-fuckers anyway, dig?
That is the real problem. But Duh-merica’s wee heads are exploding for all the wrong reasons. And Liberaloi-duhs are celebrating against their own interests too.
