It is the manner in which it was done…Posted: June 28, 2012
The news from the United States Supreme Court really should have surprised us this morning. And we are sorry that it did not. Faith, hope, and good will are not matters that are inherent in humankind. At the very onset when all news outlets we were either watching or listening to and the qualified pundits of such – at first – made the announcement that the Individual mandate had been struck down and deemed unconstitutional.
Inasmuch as we saw how this piece of legislation was put together – considering all of the bribery, pay-outs, and porkulus spending promises – realistically the show should have been stopped there and then. It was the machinations of House leadership and members, as well as the shenanigans, questionable acts, and deceitful scheming of the Senate leadership as well as its members were criminal.
And then with the majority of Americans not wanting anything to do with this Obamacare legislation insofar as by this time it had been soiled in smut with the closed-door meetings, the backhanded deals, and just who were these people trying to kid?
I would hate to think if even for a moment that those of us living in America are that stupid and ignorant not to believe in an “Affordable Care Act” without first reading the bill in its entirety, and at the very least having the bill posted (as promised) for us which of course were campaign promises made by our President. Now needless to say that the pundits, reporters, even members of the law community got the decision wrong – which as you know by now with every trick in the book and questionable acts the monkey-business calling itself the Affordable Care Act was ruled constitutional by way of taxation.
Make no mistake about it people – we’ve been had by the most corrupt consort of people ever to step into Washington D.C. The Affordable Care Act a $500 billion tax increase — borrowing language from the Supreme Court decision, which ruled that the mandate to purchase health insurance is constitutional because Congress has the power to levy taxes on people who don’t buy it.
House Republicans wasted no time scheduling yet another vote to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care reform law after the Supreme Court’s decision today to uphold its constitutionality.
Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) announced this morning that the House would hold the vote July 11.
“There’s a lot of resolve amongst our colleagues … to stop a law that’s hurting our economy,” Speaker John Boehner said.
“The American people want this bill repealed,” the Ohio Republican said.
That, of course, won’t happen anytime soon. The House has repeatedly passed repeal measures during the past 18 months, none of which have been taken up by the Senate, which is controlled by Democrats.
The best chance Republicans have for a full repeal of the law is if they win both the White House and a majority in the Senate this November. In fact, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney made just that point today.
“Our mission is clear: If we want to get rid of Obamacare, we’re going to have replace President Obama,” he said. What this country needs is leadership that is on the straight and narrow; given that we as well as the Founding Fathers know the nature of humankind (human nature) could not serve in government for any length of time…we all know what needs to be done.
