Chief Justice Roberts Is A Genius?


Posted on June 28, 2012 by I.M. Citizen

Before you look to do harm to Chief Justice Roberts or his family, it’s important that you think carefully about the meaning – the true nature — of his ruling on Obama-care. The Left will shout that they won, that Obama-care was upheld and all the rest. Let them.

It will be a short-lived celebration.

Here’s what really occurred — payback. Yes, payback for Obama’s numerous, ill-advised and childish insults directed toward SCOTUS.

Chief Justice Roberts actually ruled the mandate, relative to the commerce clause, was unconstitutional. That’s how the Democrats got Obama-care going in the first place. This is critical. His ruling means Congress can’t compel American citizens to purchase anything. Ever. The notion is now officially and forever, unconstitutional. As it should be.

Next, he stated that, because Congress doesn’t have the ability to mandate, it must, to fund Obama-care, rely on its power to tax. Therefore, the mechanism that funds Obama-care is a tax. This is also critical. Recall back during the initial Obama-care battles, the Democrats called it a penalty, Republicans called it a tax. Democrats consistently soft sold it as a penalty. It went to vote as a penalty. Obama declared endlessly, that it was not a tax, it was a penalty. But when the Democrats argued in front of the Supreme Court, they said ‘hey, a penalty or a tax, either way’. So, Roberts gave them a tax. It is now the official law of the land — beyond word-play and silly shenanigans. Obama-care is funded by tax dollars. Democrats now must defend a tax increase to justify the Obama-care law.

Finally, he struck down as unconstitutional, the Obama-care idea that the federal government can bully states into complying by yanking their existing medicaid funding. Liberals, through Obama-care, basically said to the states — ‘comply with Obama-care or we will stop existing funding.’ Roberts ruled that is a no-no. If a state takes the money, fine, the Feds can tell the state how to run a program, but if the state refuses money, the federal government can’t penalize the state by yanking other funding. Therefore, a state can decline to participate in Obama-care without penalty. This is obviously a serious problem. Are we going to have 10, 12, 25 states not participating in “national” health-care? Suddenly, it’s not national, is it?

Ultimately, Roberts supported states rights by limiting the federal government’s coercive abilities. He ruled that the government can not force the people to purchase products or services under the commerce clause and he forced liberals to have to come clean and admit that Obama-care is funded by tax increases.

Although he didn’t guarantee Romney a win, he certainly did more than his part and should be applauded.

And he did this without creating a civil war or having bricks thrown threw his windshield. Oh, and he’ll be home in time for dinner.

Brilliant.

    You forrgot another important issue, if its a tax, and if it originated in the Senate (which it did) people can now go back to the Supreme Court and claim its an illegal tax, because all tax increases must originate in the House.

      Indeed, I left that out. Thanks! That’s probably the funniest part in all of this. But then, we’ll probably get a good belly laugh out of the libtards if they ever figure out how they were duped. For now, though, this’ll have to hold me over because I doubt very much the libtards have the integrity to stand for “doing the right thing” if it goes against everything they’ve been brainwashed to believe. I hope they ALL rot and boil in that eternal pit of fire reserved for things like them, and that they NEVER catch on. Stay ignorant, libtards. You deserve it.

    You say a state can opt out just by not taking federal funding. That included “existing funding.” But many states are or are close to broke. What makes you think they will forgo the federal money just to get out of ObamaCare? I wish that were true, but I doubt it. Please correct my thinking.

      I’m praying we have enough State Attorney Generals and Governors with the spinal fortitude to stand up to this scheme. But remember that “taxes” must originate from the House. The obamacare scheme was cooked up in the dark crevices of the senate. In addition, the House CAN withdraw the tax upon their return in January. They hold the purse strings in DC. And if obama is fired in November, then the incoming president can repeal it and replace it with something that isn’t so horrid.
