On June 28, 2012 at 10:15 a.m. EST, obamacare was ruled unconstitutional via the Commerce Clause, yet ruled Constitutional on the grounds that it is a tax, even though the current White House occupant claimed it wasn’t a tax while jamming it through Congress and trying unsuccessfully to sell it to the American public.
The Supreme Court of the United States’ landmark ruling on obamacare and obama breaking his oft repeated pledge to not raise taxes on middle class Americans happened simultaneously.
obamacare is a $1.7 trillion tax increase from the candidate who repeatedly swore during the 2008 election and afterwards that during his administration, if you make less than $250,000 a year “you will not see your taxes increase by one single dime, I repeat, not one single dime”…
Unfortunately for obama, as a result of the Supreme Court ruling, beginning in 2014 all Americans will be taxed an additional $700 or 2% of their income (whichever is greater) for not having healthcare insurance.
obama is vulnerable to attack over this ruling because the Justices did not rule obamacare Constitutional under the commerce clause. It was only ruled constitutional once viewed as a new tax. Since obama publically and repeatedly said he would never raise taxes on middle class earners, he has to disagree with this ruling, especially because obamacare was ruled unconstitutional under the commerce clause.
Do not hold your breath.
What this clearly shows is that “progressives” are more than happy to use the power of the government to force Americans into doing what they do not want to do. In order to accomplish that objective, they will lie, cheat, steal and kill without a shred of remorse. Lie? Look at obama’s no tax pledge. Cheat? Look at Senator Al Franken’s 2008 election victory. Steal? Look at all the taxes taken out of every paycheck. Kill? Look at the results of Fast and Furious.
Americans are now subjects. Not citizens. Enjoy your new tax and enslavement America.
Next obama, being the ever faithful “progressive” that he is will readjust his re-election campaign messaging to run against the middle class tax increase imposed on Americans by that evil GOP appointed Chief Justice Roberts.
