Is this woman a lunatic? The Federal government has no “gift” money to give. It doesn’t produce, it consumes! The coercion happens prior to the gifting!

The money must be from Obama’s stash. It's free.

That money gets phased out so is useless in the long run. The long run is what states are complaining about.

If that doesn’t make sense to you, then have I got a deal for you.

I am willing to sell you my house such that you won’t have to pay me any money for the first two years. After that, you need to pay me $50,000 a month for life.

Any takers?

From what I have read about Kagan’s background and outlook - I highly doubt she believes in the Constitution as worded.

I am sure she views it as an interesting document for the period in which it was created - and I am also sure she views the Constitution as irrelevant for our present age.

Elmer Kagan thinks money grows on trees.

The government, by its very nature, cannot give except what it first takes.

All matching fund programs where the Feds tax the states generally and then offer the money back to the states on the condition that the state implement the Fed’s program is coercive.
It’s not something the state would do on it’s on. It’s not something the FED has power to legislate directly. So they use the power of the federal government to tax and hand out funds, to coerce states to do things the federal gov’t is not authorized to legislate on.

A Justice of the Supreme Court made this comment. Wow!

Let’s list the coercive affects (albeit indirect).

Insurance companies are coerced to compete.
Doctors are coerced into price fixing
Patients are coerced into government provided insurance
Taxpayers are coerced into accepting more debt or higher taxes

"It’s just a boatload of federal money for you to take and spend on poor people’s healthcare"

What an asshat.

She was put on The Court SPECIFICALLY to help re-distribute wealth, and Rule that to do so is Constitutional?

THERE IS NO FEDERAL MONEY!

It's taxpayers' personal money, that is TAKEN, to hand out to benefit someone else.

WHERE in the Constitution does it say that individuals can be "ENRICHED", by taking from one, and giving to another, at the GOVERNMENT'S discretion?

“A GIFT from the Federal Government.”

This woman is extremely dangerous, to be in such a high position of power. Her conflict of interest alone, in this case and her refusal to recuse herself is an impeachable offense.

If Congress fails to vote this woman out on that grounds, then we are doomed as a Republic.

What else do you expect from someone who has never held a real job? All money belongs to the government and, if you’re good, they may give some to you.

"Kagan: "'The exact same argument so, so that really reduces to the question of: why is a big gift from the federal government a matter of coercion?
"'In other words, the federal government is here saying: we’re giving you a boatload of money. There are no, is no matching funds requirement. There are no extraneous conditions attached to it.
"'It’s just a boatload of federal money for you to take and spend on poor people’s healthcare. It doesn’t sound coercive to me, I have to tell you.'"

This statement tells us everything we need to know about Justice Kagan's concept of "coercive power" versus "individual liberty" and the Constitution's protections for the latter.

America's Founders viewed "government" as "coercive" by nature.

America's Founders understood that "government" creates no money, has no money, and cannot "gift" money without first "taking" it from someone--a "coercive" act in itself.

Besides, this "boatload of money" is not "federal money." It is "the People's" money, and who is naive or uninformed enough to believe that "taking" it from the people, sending it to Washington, and then doling it out to the States is an efficient way to provide "poor people's health care"????Oh, how far we have come from the wisdom which gave birth to America's Constitution, America's liberty for all, and America's prosperity and greatness!!!

Some people really are as dumb as they look, and Kagan is one of them.
