The lefty talking point is that Obama didn’t create this tax, Chief Justice John Roberts did. Ha! But that is bunk because the Obamacare lawyers argued the penalty was a tax and was even called out for it by Justice Alito because they were on one hand saying it wasn’t a tax for the purpose of the Injunction act but on the other hand they were saying it was a tax under the taxing authority in the Constitution. So don’t let people blame this on Roberts, but on Obama and his team of crooked lawyers.

    Even though I’m still bleeding from last night, I have another very interesting take on this for your viewing and listening pleasure. It is fairly short and brought to us from those lovely “Chicks on the Right”.

    http://chicksontheright.com/2012/06/29/hope-wishful-thinking/

    Interesting huh?

    • las1

      Rshill… I’m gonna pop this right in here from my previous response to you.

      I knew I wasn’t crazy… I’d forgotten that the government lawyers argued before the court that it indeed was a tax, contrary to their original argument. This is classic bait and switch… and indeed Roberts did apparently rule on that argument. But Levin counters that the taxation argument was not competently argued as part of the presentation and was NOT included as a presentation… so Roberts should NOT have ruled on it as such because of a simple yet specious claim that it was a tax by Obama’s lawyers. (I’m no lawyer but I tend to believe Levin’s estimation of what constitutes detailed argument before the court.)

      Levin also asserts that clarity is one of the prime outcomes for rulings, but there is NO clarity in what Roberts says in his decision. And the arguments of what’s not a penalty and what is a tax (as laid out in this very good video) are so convoluted you can only shake your head in confusion.

      Justice Roberts: “Choosing not to comply with the mandate can only subject you to what amounts to a tax”. Huh! What the!… Comply or not comply you are taxed anyway. I read this to mean that you have NO option but to comply. Non compliance is NOT an option so you won’t be penalized. Confused yet? Levin is looking even more sane after hearing this.

      Now to your point where I do agree in this video… that Obama-Care was “deemed” passed because the law coming back to the House from the Senate would never be accepted… therefore shenanigans by Pelosi “deemed” it passed. My question is… Does “deemed” still count as a legitimate act by the House of Representatives in making legislation? That is the question… and you can be damned sure that if Republicans claim that Obama-Care is void because it was “deemed”… then Dems will cry bloody murder then “RACISM”! Not necessarily in that order.

      Like you I see some silver lining about the deemed argument, but I have not seen it anywhere else other than in this clip.

      Thanks for this.

      • Rshill7

        Yeah, but it’s worse than that. It did not even originate in the House. The final bill came from the Senate :-)

        • Amy

          And the Senate has no authority to write tax law. You aren’t a wee little bit concerned that Justice Roberts either a) ignored that fact to make a political point or b) even more horrifying – is ignorant of it?

          I’m sorry, I see no silver lining in what Roberts just did. The silver lining I see is that we are PO’d and fed up and over taxed and now awake…

          Still love ya Rshill7, just not in agreement with you on this particular point. Doesn’t mean I’ll flame you or call you names though. LOL We still fight on the same side.

          • Rshill7

            Yep. We’ll all have to stick around to see how it shakes out. I’ve always been an optimist, and it has served me very well.

            “…That which cannot be shaken will remain.”

            • Amy

              I actually am optimistic & energized. Romney pulled in $4million+ yesterday – not from super PAC’s but regular people. Small businesses hate this administration. A majority of doctors/health professionals hate this atrocity of a health care law. A large majority of tax payers hate the constant spending by our elected leaders. This is far from a done deal for Obama…

              • las1

                The silver lining is the fact that it seems to have energized conservatives in their detestation of everything Obama. That’s the ONLY silver lining. As for Roberts… he issued a clearly confused, incoherent and unconstitutional ruling as evidenced by the four other dissenting judges. And Levin’s deconstruction of the ruling was a able smackdown. Robert’s no genius nor grand wizard navigating over the fetid pond scum of Rino Republicans and Democrats with this ruling as Krauthammer seems to suggest he so ably did. It’s a horrible ruling and sets the stage for more Obama histrionics when he could have successfully put a stake in the heart of Obama-Care once and for all. That opportunity is now past and we will never get it back.

                • Amy

                  That’s just the thing – I think if Roberts really wanted to just kill this beast he would have just sided with Scalia et al. and ruled it unconstitutional. Plain & simple. I think more likely is the fact that he wanted to secure his legacy as someone who isn’t viewed as political and reaches across the aisle. In doing so, he took a crap on the Constitution and opened up precedent. His job is not to make a law work – it’s to determine the constitutionality of a law as written. The dissenting opinions say it all and are worth reading.

                • las1

                  This is where we are at now presently… always Conservatives who are afraid of being called names who play the so-called “moderate” card and conduct themselves to be of no offense to the liberal screamers and haters.

                  This is exactly what Roberts has done… apparently there is evidence he’s part of the liberal cocktail set and schmoozes in that milieu. It’s a travesty of the constitution. Yes… the constitution does trump politics… and we have a Chief Justice who for fear of being “political” makes a political ruling. Coward!

                • Amy

                  I think Judge Andrew Napalitano said it best – when you put a black robe on someone for life, it changes them. I would wager a bet that a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land can be a power trip on steroids.

                • Rshill7

                  When you shine that opaque crystal ball sir, use Windex. You have no idea why he did it. Only he knows. Lots of shark-jumpers in here since yesterday. I’m gonna keep both wheels on the ground while you and others take to the air.

                • las1

                  That’s true.. I don’t know his motives. So we judge by his fruits. I ditched my crystal ball and grabbed a magnifying glass… and what we see smells progressive… pure and simple.

                  The ruling was a cockamamie incoherent and confused ruling and it’s results maintain an unconstitutional and statist liberal program enshrined in law… aka… Obamacare. The only good thing (two actually) it did was galvanize conservatives and throw the thing back to the legislators. And the latter did not have to happen under his watch. He botched it sir! Whatever his motives, he botched it.

                  And his Arizona ruling was equally baffling gutting privisions that are essentially federal law and leaving Arizona State toothless in fighting illegals.

                  If Roberts was not working for Obama, you could sure be forgiven for thinking he was.

                  Rshill, I don’t know why folks are giving you such a hard time. They act like you are happy about this ruling and that we should all just give up.

                  You aren’t happy about, you are just trying to show that we can still get rid of this monstrousity.

                  That is the one thing that really depresses me with some conservatives…they give up too easily. As much as I despise what the left stands for, I have to give them one thin: They never give up……well…neither should we.

                  Had they struck it down, you would’ve learned more about histrionics than you ever wanted to know sir. It would be histrionics as far as the Hubble space telescope could see.

                  Now Obama is dead in the water. This is also a white hot fire under the butts of business owners, and regular citizens alike.

                • Amy

                  Come on Rshill – just because something is going to cause an uproar doesn’t mean you don’t do it if it’s the right thing to do. Striking it down as unconstitutional was the right thing to do. It shouldn’t matter that it’s not popular with the noisy minority. That’s PC & activism from the bench. For Pete’s sake – even Kennedy wanted it thrown out.

                  Edited to add that if my Wisconsin Governor had listened to the VERY noisy histrionics coming from the unions he would have caved and not enacted Act 10. We would be broke and look like Illinois. But he passed it – because it was the right thing to do. He passed it and said he was willing to lose his governorship because it was the right thing to do.

                • las1

                  just because something is going to cause an uproar doesn’t mean you don’t do it if it’s the right thing to do.

                  Bingo… well said. And your example of Scott Walker… Bingo X2

                  Look Rshill… you know how libs play this game. Since when are you so afraid of the histrionics of liberals? Histrionics IS their middle name. We’ve come to expect it. We should just stay the course, be constitutional and ONLY play politics to our advantage when it DOES NOT impinge on the Constitution.

                • Rshill7

                  Since never Las.

                  Did I say I was afraid of anything? Did I say Roberts was afraid of anything? Putting words in other people’s mouths is not sanitary. You should know better.

                  In addition, you mentioned histrionics first. I never did, other than in response to you. Also, if you want me to read something, it helps to address it to me, unless you want it to slip on by. I just happened to catch this one.

                  If you want someone to argue with, I’m always happy to oblige.

  • wodiej

    The key words there are people should be able to get an affordable health care plan. If people would get a job, they could get health care insurance. I have always had it even though I have no health problems. I got a low cost high deductible plan that covered preventive care 100% as well as gave me a $500 allotment for Dr. visits before the deductible kicked in. If I didn’t use all of the $500 allowance, it rolled over into the next year and could be used towards my deductible. I got the coverage that I needed and suited my personal situation. It makes people take some responsibility for their health and not run to the Dr. for every sniffle they get.

    • Patriot077

      I know several people who don’t have employer health plans that have opted for a similar insurance plan. I think these kinds of options need to be part of any “reform” legislation going forward.

      They would also work for the young people who now choose to go without any insurance because it isn’t affordable for them.

      • keyesforpres

        If we want reform legislation it should be one line: We can buy health insurance across state lines. That would fall under the commerce clause. Anything else would be unconstitutional. Get the federal gov’t out of it and let the private sector flourish. They would be happy to offer that kind of product without gov’t interference.

  • Sandra123456

    Where are all these RNC ads running? Never see them. See Obama’s stuff, but never these ads.

    • Amy

      I saw three anti-Obamatax ads last night. I didn’t see the RNC’s ad but the ones I saw were good.

      It probably depends on what channels you watch, whether you have satellite or cable as well as your geographical area.

      For the record, the ones I saw were on the local FOX as well as our local CBS channels.

    • las1

      My question exactly. Nice ads… but if no one sees them…. Where do they appear? The MSM is not going to pass up the chance of Obama practicing his perpetual perfidy slip from their hands by airing the counter argument.

      • Sober_Thinking

        I’m expecting them to hit national T.V. in or around Sep/Oct – when Obama has run out of money and when Romney has the most – also, when they’ll stick in people’s short-term memory at the best time and have the most influence. This is in line with Romney’s strategy to date.

        • las1

          Thanks for this. One question which no one has yet answered. Is there a broadcast policy among broadcasters or within the various broadcasters that require at least a veneer of objectivity in running ads. Do they refuse ads simply because they are Republican. Do you have any idea about this?

          • Sober_Thinking

            Great question – wish I knew for sure.

            My guess: I suppose it’s possible with some crooked networks (like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, etc.). But what it may boil down to is the color of advertiser’s money. FNC airs Democratic or bad ads because they get paid alot to do so – regardless if it opposes their beliefs. Maybe the other networks will follow suit – afterall, money is money. Or they may not for fear of reprisal from Obama and the FCC or some Gov’t. agency.

            I think a real concern might be Obama and the DNC buying up all the prime time advertising slots during Sep/Oct. I’m sure those networks will give them 1st dibs.

            No doubt this is gonna get messy. The good news is that Obama has already spent tens of millions of dollars and is rapidly becoming cash-strapped. We’ll see.

            • las1

              I really appreciate this. It’s a subject I know nothing about. And it appears just from some of the points you make that it is worthy of an expose from some trusty “alternate” media types. It sounds like something right up Michelle Malkin’s alley.

              • Sober_Thinking

                Michelle would indeed expose this… she’s a pit bull! Bernard Goldberg and/or Glenn Beck… even Drudge, Red State and/or Breibart.com would expose this.

                The difference between 2008 and 2012, is that now we’re paying attention… and we’re pissed.

  • sDee

    TRS, you’ve focused in on a really interesting angle of this – that the statists are on the defense? I never expected they would try to blame this on Roberts . I had expected they would leave this whole tax/non-tax, injunctions/commerce-clause thing alone because Americans are too ignorant to figure it out how much damage was done to the Republic with the Robert’s Precedent. . So if they are responding, they must be on the defense.

    Of course I am further off the elephant compound than even Levin in that I believe Roberts intentionally sabotaged us yesterday, that it was not just sloppy as Levin said.

    You said “So don’t let people blame this on Roberts, but on Obama and his team of crooked lawyers.”

    Are you now in Rshill’s camp that this was Roberts, sacrificing the queen?

            He is the one who let the usurper stumble around his oath of loyalty and administered it in private. He is the one who blocked all of the Article 2 Section 1 eligibility challenges from the docket.

            There is clearly far more to the man than meets the eye. My knowledge of the outright and complete corruption of our government still guards any optimism of it. I am however keeping the corner of my eye open.

                Remember this – What is the most important piece on the board? The King? No, it has little power, and is extremely vunerable. The Queen? No, it is too valuable to risk in precarious positions. The Rook, Knight, or Bishop? Nope, just middle men doing the Queens business. The Pawn? Bingo. The Pawn is the most valuable piece on the board. Without them, the more powerful pieces have no defense. With them, you can march a position down the board for a checkmate. They are the foundation of your gameplan. All praise the lowly pawn.

    • marketcomp

      SDee, after some reflection I woke up this morning and I am even more pissed off today than I was yesterday. I cannot believe that Justice Roberts upheld a statue based on a pseudo intellectual opinion that needs to be broken down to really understand the mumbo jumbo rhetorical BS! Roberts job is to comply with the Constitution not try to punish citizens who made a terrible choice in 2008! I mean who in the hell does he think he is? Is that in his job description to make the American people pay for a horrible mistake with the election of Barack Obama? Do judges do that? This opinion was way outside of his Constitutional ability to interpret laws that comply with the constitution. I am so pissed off at this decision because like Mark said Obama care could have stopped and over yesterday! The conservative senators and representative should write him a letter inquiring about his ability to lead and interpret the Constitution. Since it appears that the pressure worked when Leaky Pat Leahy called him out on the senate floor the conservative senators should put him on blast in a letter about his ability to serve and suggest a resignation, of course after the election. Moreover, why don’t we have people who can put pressure on judges to adhere to the Constitution like it appears that pressure was put on Roberts? None of the republican senators made a speech telling the any of the judges to comply with the constitution or they will be impeached. I am so disgusted at this because the decision was based on nothing that was argued in the lower courts nor the supreme court so why would he think that its OK to render an opinion that is not Constitutional and really has nothing to do with the Constitution? I mean has he forgotten why he is there? We know that the liberal justices don’t believe in the Constitution because they imply it and write about all the time. But, no one ever thought that Roberts would not comply with the Constitution.

      I read somewhere that he is taking medication for epilepsy which can really effect his cognitive abilities and is critical for decision-making. This should be investigated in that letter from the senators.

      I have no faith that the RINO’s will follow through to use the taxing power to get rid of this monstrosity of a statue. Obama’s entire persona and being is a lie and it is no surprise that he would lie about this too.

      • Freempg

        why don’t we have people who can put pressure on judges to adhere to the Constitution like it appears that pressure was put on Roberts

        This is a Republican affliction. When Obama said he wanted to be the president for all of us and was a uniter not a divider, we knew that was BS. When RINOs govern, they adhere to this lofty ideal which manifests in constant compromise with the left.

    Just proves that liberals impose huge taxes on people, always and forever. Yet in all this debate nobody seems to be asking where all the doctors for this plan will come from? Not only are there NOT enough doctors to treat all these people, but the doctors that remain are going to lose a lot of money under Obamacare, since all rates will be set by the Federal government, especially for Medicaid or Medicare. You will see more and more doctors simply go private and refuse to deal with government insurance. This will not only put a huge strain on the doctors that do remain in these programs, but it will dramatically increase waiting times for the few doctors that remain. This issue should be brought up by Romney. If you ever expect to see your family doctor again, kill this law. If you do not, you will eventually be forced into a government clinic where you will either live or die, depending on the type of care you get. Are you willing to settle for that?

    • keyesforpres

      Over half the doctors practicing have said they will quit if this isn’t overturned.

      • sDee

        I am shocked at how many people think heathcare should be “free” and worse, how many think government healthcare is “free”.

        I ask them to think about the business they in and how they could operate if the government told them they had to provide their goods and services to whoever demanded it whether they could pay or not.

        I ask them how they would feel if they government told them how much they could charge for their services and what it would be like if they could not charge more than others, or find more innovative, higher quality and more profitable solutions than their competitors.

        I ask them what exactly they would do when the realized their potential income and profits were capped and, that no matter how good they were or how hard they worked they could not make any more money.

        I tell them that is what we have done to the largest private industry in America, from the country doctor, to the engineers who build life saving medical equipment, to the companies who invent new drugs, to the largest hospital.

        I ask them to think about how it feels to be a doctor in America

        • keyesforpres

          Very good! What I also remind people is that Americans are generous and whenever there is someone that needs a life saving treatment that can’t afford it, there are fundraiseres and doctors that will volunteer their services, work out a payment plan, etc. that if the gov’t runs it and says “NO” that’s it. NO is the answer and there won’t be fundraisers, etc. to turn to.

        • Suzyqpie

          This is the stunning part for me. How can they believe anything is free? And we have Mrs 0bama running around talking about free contraceptives. The recipient class truly believes that they are entitled to free everything. Coming soon free dental care, free pet care, free whatever they decide they want next.

      There is much more to come on the doctors. Which ones will embrace this because they love socialized medicine, which fight it, and which just walk away.

      Much of our family works in the healthcare industry and I can tell all of you who do not, that government takeover is a slow ugly death.

      What compounds this evil is hat already care is being with held. We just worked with a mid-50’s woman in “a New England state”. Her private health insurance is now completely regulated by the government. She has a serious heart problem causing her to be unable to work or carry out simple physical tasks without shortness of breath and dizziness. The operation she needs in not minor but routine. In most all other states she would have had approved immediately and in rehab by now. Her doctor told her he will not recommend it until her condition becomes life threatening.

      As care receivers Americans have NO IDEA what is in store for you and your loved ones. None. It is happening now in Massachusetts and across the US for all Medicare patients. It is slow and sinister. The human impact will not be seen until it is too late.

        You have hit on one of my biggest objections to the Patience Protection and Affordable Care Act. I use it’s full name to capture the deceipt. WDC will build a bureaucracy that will rival the pentagon. Paper shufflers charting your body mass index for no reason, job gettin’ a check. And a pension.

    This whole decision will reinvigorate the TEA party.

    Taxed Enough Already! Turn this ship around in November or face running aground and sinking!

    So should we as citizens be demanding that this law go back to the House for a new vote, now that the language has changed? it’s not the law the House passed, right? It’s a “Bait & Switch” now, isn’t it?

    • KenInMontana

      Because the penalty is now legally defined as a tax, the law, in fact the entire O-care beast is vulnerable. The bar has been lowered as to how many votes are needed to kill it from within, from a two thirds majority to kill the law entirely, to a simple majority of 51 to rip out its funding mechanism, the non-compliance tax. The ruling also prevents the Feds from penalizing and forcing the compliance of the States with O-care. The ruling has turned the monster into a paper tiger.

      What we need to focus on, right now is evicting Zero, winning control of the Senate and retaining control of the House. Once that is accomplished, we have two years to burn that paper tiger into inconsequential ashes.

        Well said!

    • Amy

      Well, if they do my Rep. has already said he’s voting for a repeal. He was interviewed last night and already vowing to work on repealing it.

    • keyesforpres

      Technically, it wasn’t passed correctly. Both chambers are supposed to pass the exact same bill and that never happened. Pelosi deemed it passed in the House. I never understood how that could be legal.

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        As Ken said below, it’s very vulnerable! And you just added another reason why.

        It’s mind boggling we’re, for the moment, stuck with ObamaCare, or that it ever got as far as it did, all of these things considered.

  • Sober_Thinking

    It’s funny… it almost seems to be a joke to refer to him as the “Liar-and-Chief” anymore. I wonder if there’s a medical malody that prevents him from EVER speaking the truth? He’s a compulsive liar? Lying Terrets (sp?)? He was born without the honesty muscle/gene/bone?

    Obama has cemented his legacy as the worst and most dangerous President ever in American History. I hope and pray that we remove this monster in November. He is a dictator in the making and he is worse than ANY terrorist attack – especially now that he has become emboldened.

    Pray, fight, vote!

      Well, he was raised on the koran as a boy and taqiyya is taught….that is deceit in order to advance islam. It’s considered a virtue to lie in islam…especially to the infidel. O is performing an economic jihad on the US. He is the ultimate taqiyyameister.

    IT’S A F’N TAX, AS SAID BY SCOTUS. SO GO FYS! Unless ORimneyo does what he said he would do.

  • keyesforpres

    Folks, go here to sign and demand they repeal the whole monstrousity. Then, after you sign, a screen comes up where you can donate to conservative candidates running for Congress. I haven’t donated yet, but I am. It will probably only be 5 bucks per candidate, but if everyone would do that, it would be a lot of money.

    Senator Demint is doing this.

    Please sign, donate, and forward to your email list.

    What makes this ad so compelling is the fact that they are running it on the heels of yesterday’s decision so people can hear Obama’s promises followed by his lies. All of it fresh in everyone’s minds.

    Great use of an ad! Again, they are doing a GREAT job with these.

  • Cindy09

    Congress was on cue to grab the baton and run with it. Congress should be able to strike down Obamacare on July 11th. It is a tax and the fact that it originated from the Senate should deem it invalid. I don’t think that the last we’ve heard of the AHA.

    • kong1967

      I’ve wanted to ask about this. If they move to repeal it as a tax, wouldn’t it still have to go through both houses? If so, why do it before January 20th because Reid won’t even allow it to put up for a vote?

  • kong1967

    Good ad, but libs don’t care what it’s called because someone else is paying for it.

    Roberts jokes about trip to ‘impregnable’ fortress… http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_HEALTH_CARE_CHIEF_JUSTICE?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2012-06-29-11-54-34
    I don’t know about you, but, I’m FED UP WITH THE ARROGANCE!

    • Boon Companion

      I’m quite confident that anti-seizure drugs partially lobotomized whatever passion he may have had for human freedom if he ever had any for starters. The other possibility is that they threatened him and his family. I wouldn’t put anything past Sovietized Slum Lords.

      • brendawatkins

        No excuse justifies his actions.. and him joking about it now, knowing how many people this has upset, just adds fuel to the fire. It’s like kicking us when we’re down.

  • NCHokie02

    The left saying Roberts “created” it as a tax is completely bogus. One because of what RS said above and two because the justices don’t sit there and say “how can we change this and modify it to be something we want?” They don’t add things into it that weren’t argued in the first place. If it was never brought up as a tax in the first place, and the Obama administration refused to call it a tax and never brought that up as an issue then the Supreme Court would not have upheld it as a tax.

  • Suzyqpie

    I had myself all calmed down now I’m angry again. Keep that in mind and stay with me a minute. A couple of months ago c-Span broadcast the state dinner party that was thrown for Angela Merkel. It was a totally garish revolting scene. No hoi polloi(us) in sight. Our elected officials all dressed up parading and posing for the cspan camera. And here comes Mr & Mrs Roberts. I thought what the heck is he doing cavorting around with the pretend-royals he is supposed to police. In the event you’re still with me, here’s why Roberts adjudicated in the manner that he did, so that Kegan and Sotomayer will invite him to dinner in their homes and they will like him. I speculate that there was not one person at that Merkel-provided-excuse-for-a-taxpayer-funded party, who is concern about payments, financial obligation or their health care expenses. They are so detached from the lives of the average American citizen, because it is all about Them, thee entitled class.

    If it isn’t a TAX , why would the IRS oversee it ?
