Obamacare passed constitutional muster today in a 5-4 decision written by Chief Justice Roberts. The most hated piece of legislation ever passed by the Congress is now officially the law of the land.
Yea, rah rah, maybe!
Chief Justice Roberts is either the cleverest or the most devious jurist ever. With his majority opinion in place, that Obamacare is not constitutional under the Commerce Clause, but is constitutional as a tax, Obama is stuck explaining how this contradiction in his portrayal of the law could have come to pass.
After all, didn’t Obama and is minions tell the American people countless times that Obamacare was not a tax.
This is from the White House Insider and what today’s decision means:
And the initial reports I’m getting are telling me there was a lot more clever going on inside that decision than the initial reaction will indicate. It’s the Obama Tax now. And states were given an out. The entire law is a big ass convoluted mess and the ruling has reinforced that fact. Obama will have to defend something he doesn’t understand, and Romney can now sit back and just repeat over and over again “repeal-repeal-repeal”.
Oh, one other thing, it’s going to be a long, long time before Obama and the radical progressives will be able to talk about “activist judges” on the Supreme Court subverting the will of Congress and the American people. Chief Justice John Roberts just saw to that.
