Obamacare Upheld – Repeal on the Way!

The ruling shocked nearly everyone. And the Democrats were, indeed, wrong. The mandate is not constitutional under the Commerce Clause. That much was affirmed.

But Justice Roberts surprised everyone by allowing the mandate to survive as a tax, an argument that the government never pushed, and one Obama flatly denied, as did most Democrats.

“This is not a tax” was the Democratic mantra during the bill’s deliberations in congress. And only when they were about to see the law shot down using the Commerce Clause argument did they reverse course and claim it was, indeed, a tax.

There was never an argument on the power of congress to tax. They have that authority.

But this will, essentially, wind up as a tax on the middle class. Something Obama promised he would not do.

Now, he has officially lied about that as well.

This will energize the right to replace the Democrats in order to repeal this.

And this leaves open a number of other questions that may well end up back in front of the Supreme Court if the law is not repealed.

And while this may seem a blow to liberty, it would have been a far bigger blow to the Constitution and Liberty had the court upheld this atrocity as permissible under the commerce clause. In that sense, it was a win. There are now limits to what can be forced under the Commerce Clause.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
