For those of you who know about John Wayne Bobbitt, he had a bit of his anatomy removed by his wife…well John Roberts just did the same to the country. So, I’ve thought about this for a little while now, I know it’s a becoming a dead horse, but who cares. I’m not going to look up any fancy articles or previous judicial judgments, I’m going from the gut. It is my take on the Justice Roberts decision.
There has been numerous takes, such as he was playing chess while the rest of the country was playing checkers. There was another about how he was looking out for the image of the court…or worse, his own image.
I don’t care what his reasoning was, his decision was bunk. The president said vehemently it was not a tax, it was argued under the commerce clause, yet Justice Roberts rewrote the case in his decision, calling it a tax. So let’s pretend Roberts actually had a master plan thinking it would make it more difficult to run something of this sort down our throats again, in the aspect if it were sold as a tax it would be that much tougher to pass. Well, he wasn’t judging future cases, he was judging Obamacare. Thinking things would be tougher down the road makes no sense, nothing has been as bad as Obamacare in our countries history…1/5 (a number I’ve heard tossed around a lot) of the economy was handed to the federal government. By siding with the four liberal judges, he locked in Obamacare, and the disaster that will come along with it.
Let’s say he did it because he didn’t want it to look like a court where the conservatives always side with conservatives, or vice versa. More bunk. He isn’t there to make himself or the court look good, he is there to make the correct decision based on the constitution, regardless of what people think, and making people pay a tax for existing is nowhere in the constitution. One minute the liberals are calling him a right-wing hack, the next they are praising him. Thing is, NO one saw this coming from him, Kennedy was supposed the be the swing vote, and he was one of the ones most against it.
Another angle was by him voting for it, would make conservatives rally together to defeat Obummer in the fall. Again, not his job. BO is in big trouble for a myriad of reasons, and Obummer care was one them before Roberts came along.
Look, I’m no mind reader, but I do think this…Roberts made a hideous decision. He gave the big thumbs up to the largest tax increase in the history of the country, if not world history. Roberts essentially just said “sure, go ahead and tax everyone in the country for no other reason than they are breathing”. It feeds into the attitude that is prevailing across the board, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme. How long can our country actually survive like this? Let’s just tax everyone for the fast food they eat, for not having a gym membership, for not having a cell phone…eating junk food while watching fitness programs on TV, and not having a cell phone handy to call in your heart attack could all be deemed in the interest of health care costs.
This is the ultimate goal of Obummer, to crash the health care system so that the government can take over entirely. BO has said out of his own mouth, he wants a single payer system…that single payer being the federal government.
I could go ramble on and on about this, it ties in with all things bad about BO. Think about it for a while, how has it effected you, and how will it effect you.
