The only Problem I see and one it seems the Cowards on the Bench have,is they dont have the Balls to say to one of the Litigants,make up your mind on how you want to argue this Case,do you contend it is a Tax or not.
In public they are Contending it is Not a Tax and that is what the President has said in Public in Interviews,but in court they are arguing it is because they know thats the only way they win. To me whether it is a tax or not The Freakin Government is going to have the Power to do whatever the hell they want to do as long as they call it a tax. How Crazy is that.
You will eat arugala because we will fine you if you dont and we can do it because it is a Tax .
What you appear not to know and should know is that Obama and his circle are following the FDR playbook on Social Security from the 1930s. That’s not an opinion or a theory but a fact because they have said so.
In the 1930s FDR was publicly proclaiming that Social Security was a modest pension retirement program whereas in court his lawyers were arguing that Social Security was a tax and was constitutional under the 16th Amendment. It was upheld as a tax.
Same exact thing here, by design. Obamacare will be upheld as a tax despite that it will lose on Commerce Clause arguments. They only need to win on the tax question.
It is the 16th Amendment that in 100 years has brought us to this point. Is there are replacement? Yes, read below:
