Justice Roberts Caves in to Obama
It's not really news now. But, as it stands at this moment, Obamacare is officially considered constitutional by the SCOTUS. There was simply no way I could see the individual mandate standing as constitutional. All the arguments the Leftists have made were made moot when the SCOTUS declared that the mandate did not apply to the Commerce Clause of which Obamacare hinged on for the past three years. Instead, the SCOTUS declared that the mandate of Obamacare was a tax levied upon the citizens of this nation. That was declared constitutional, apparently. It appears the federal government can levy any type of tax they wish with this ruling. Of course the Obama Zombies are quickly saying this is not a tax, but a fine. Sure, but that flies directly into the face of the SCOTUS ruling on the Commerce Clause. The Leftists want it both ways. They want to say the fine is constitutional although that wasn't the ruling handed down by the SCOTUS.
It's really a sad day for freedom in this nation. The Leftists are rejoicing in this government overreach of its power. You have to look over their mindless babbling on anything. The more Socialism they can get, the better they like it. None of this would have took place without President Obama (and Leftists in general) bullying Justice John Roberts on this issue as well as the corporate campaign issue in his state of the nation address a couple of years back. There is great disgust among conservatives with Chief Justice Roberts. It appears Chief Justice Roberts changed his mind at the last moment according to some reports. Regardless, the fight over Obamacare will continue. States are saying they will not implement Obamacare. Lawsuits will continue to be filed. Of course, the final say will come to the voters in November of this year.
