Allen West says that Nancy Pelosi is delusional over her comments that it doesn’t matter how we the Obamacare ruling (being labeled a tax) because it’s good for the country. He also says the ruling yesterday was a “horrific decision” that “boils down to behavior modification by way of taxation.” He explains:
Legal precedent has been established so that the federal government can say based upon their own ideological agenda of health care that the American individual citizen must purchase a private sector comodity and if they don’t they will be taxed.
So if I were to go out and say that every person in the United States of America needs to go out and buy a 9mm glock or else they will be taxed, I wonder how the people such as Nancy Pelosi on the other side of the aisle would react to that.
But that really is the precedent that has been established.
