Posted on 06/28/2012 7:51:25 PM PDT by originalbuckeye
Has the SCOTUS EVER taken an unConstitutional law and changed the original premise to make it Constitutional? If the new 'wording' (TAX) had been in the original Bill, it NEVER would have passed!
I’m with ya brother. Hard to be as PO’d as I am right now.
I have no idea. As far as I’m concerned I wish the GOP would just ignore it. Screw it. Obama enforces only the laws he wishes to enforce. We should do the same.
Most of the Supremes decisions of late merely serve to reinforce and expand government power. Kelo?
The original concept of the court being there to defend the constitution and interpret laws based on it has been lost.
And this has been lost because Congress has never impeached a Supreme to maintain the primary goal of the Judicial.
Please spell conscience correctly in the title. Thanks.
Lots of folks here will jump on you for a vanity like this ...but I think it is a darn good question.
If one recalls they were very specific in presentation that this was NOT A TAX.
Todays ruling does NOT uphold the recorded intent of congress....does it?
Thats the problem, your rite! But then whose got consecince?!
Sorry. Sometimes I am a dyslexic speller. Especially when I am angry. And aren’t you clever with the joke!
I absolutely despise Roberts and I am so sick of our government.
Rumor earlier was he adopted Irish children via central america. Not an excuse, but a possible explanation...
Whatever, we must deal with the fallout- most nearly and directly at the ballot box in November.
Michelle Bachmann was on FoxNews today saying that same thing. The SCOTUS (piss be upon them) had no authority to do what they did. They just did it. Just like Hussein does every illegal thing. He just does it.
Sorry I misspelled ‘than’!
Now, put down the bottle, and we can talk about who ain't got no conscience!
Wow, I wish I could actually say what I think. It’s really time for planning and action and not talking on public forums. Sad really.
I don’t think that is a word.
I did preview but didn’t catch it. Is there a spellcheck on vanity posts?
OMG... that’s great!!!!!!!!!!
I’m humming that old song in my head, sooo sad!
You're wrong. 'that' is a word!
Wood ewe knot bee sew a no it awl.
The transcripts shows that Roberts was going to be a problem...20/20 hindsight and all.
Benedict Roberts is the Timothy Mc Veigh of OBAMACARE!
Please look at all the facts.
Are you emotional about this right now?
For those that did their homework on John Roberts when Bush nominated this unknown junior judge to the highest court in the land they could have read this little tidbit about his
judicial career. I read it way back then and never trusted the smirking creep from the minute Bush made him the chief justice, while passing over more senior court members.
Roberts is a liberal through and through and will always side with the libs.
John Roberts Helped in Gay Rights Case
Supreme Court nominee John Roberts donated his time to work behind the scenes for gay rights activists and helped win a decision that’s been hailed as the “single most important positive ruling” for the gay rights movement.
Roberts was a lawyer specializing in appellate work in 1995 when he agreed to help represent the gay rights activists as part of his law firm’s pro bono work.
And when the legality of the DOMA finally gets to the Supreme Court, you can bet your bottom dollar that the Roberts will side with the libs once again to trash marriage and say it’s OK for two sodomites to get “married”. Mark it down.
I stand corrected.
Roberts should have stepped down from the bench.
He’s on anti-epileptic meds and they cause impairment of his gognitive abilities, slowing of response time, forgetfulness and confusion.
Someone with these symptomes wouldn’t be allowed to drive a car, so why should they be allowed to pass judgement on a case this important.
It was a 4:4 vote with an impaired guy giving the deciding vote.
Is this crazy
The GOP was warning that it was in reality a TAX ( and I would venture some on this site took that tact also )and Obama and the DEMs arguing that it wasnt
So Roberts says the GOP was right and Obama was wrong so it is constitutional
My brain hurts
He worked for FREE, on his own time, for the homo-agenda. He also worked on the Michigan quota case for the bad guys. We got ourselves a justice Souter here.
How to Demolish obamacare ... First off - Romney, if he is elected - and telling the truth - says he will in his first hour as President - ‘Waive the obamacare requirement for all 50 states - as obama has done already for Nevada). Whatever the Senate/House origins of the obamacare bill it is now officially declared a TAX... Argue for years whether it originated in the House or the Senate... but this argument is not needed... If this obamacare monstrosity is a tax bill says SCOTUS - then Revoking this Tax bill should not take a Congressional Super Majority next term under a Republican President ... rather a simple majority of the U.S. House of Representatives could revoke the taxing authority of the obamacare law... and the Senate could concur with just sixty (60) votes at maximum (or perhaps only 51 votes depending upon how it is handled - maybe in the same way as the original bill - ‘reconciliation’ comes to mind). Then President Romney could sign the House and Senate passed Bill into law revoking the taxing authority of obamacare. The insurance mandate of obamacare would then be dead - having no taxing teeth and it will come to a halt in its cancerous spread. Then the rest of the neutered - dormant obamacare law could be dismantled piece by piece over the next one - two years.
There was an old quote that said something like “They’ve woken a sleeping giant.”
I do believe that Thomas, Alito, Scalia and maybe even Kennedy fought like hell to try to get the whole thing thrown out. They are to be commended.
The liberal no nothing lib women and Roberts are the ones who deserve our wrath.
Brokenhearted . All I can think is that The Lord is still in control and even if we must go through dark times in this life it is nothing compared to what some people are going to go through for eternity! Tonite I pray for them.
My first thought too.
Let's hope Obozocare and the libs suffer the same fate as the Axis powers.
Um, Roe v. Wade was patently unconstitutional on the face of it and was made a constitutional right out of whole cloth by a liberal activist court.
If the word tax was never in Obamacare, you can be sure the words “right to privacy” cited in Roe v. Wade are nowhere to be found in the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
I don’t see any right to an abortion in their, or a right to kill unborn babies or a magic “right to privacy”.
So the answer is yes, since at least 1970, SCOTUS has been making up law at of whole cloth to rule unconstitutional laws as being constitutional.
I was so excited this morning and SO depressed all day. I’ve been almost crying for all these hours since I heard Chief Justice Roberts did this to America. Just unbelievable. I’m just glad I’m getting old. In 2014 they are supposed to enroll me in Medicare. Two years and let’s see what the congress does with those years.....In 2 years I might be a useless non taxpaying individual who is unworthy to get a doctor to see me if I am ill. But the good news is, I’m not 20 years old any more!
Jay Leno last night lead off with: "The mandate is Constitutional!”, so we cannot trust the news/entertainment industry to tell the truth. They all received their talking points immediately to not mention the word TAX. No truth in the news/entertainment industry at all anymore. We are so screwed. Our country will not survive this travesty of justice.
And a Supreme Court ‘Justice’ that wrote the law but would’t recuse herself.
You ask what has happened like you never heard of globalism. We are being ruled by ‘citizens of the world’ now who absloutely no loyality to the ‘racist’ Nationalism you think is a constitutional Republic.
What could cause his 11th-hour 5-4 flip? Blackmail, anyone?
Someone got word to him that if the decision didn’t turn out “right”, The Won would be nominating a new Chief Justice “soon”.
There is no longer a need for the legislative branch of government. As Jack Nicholson said as President of the United States, in the movie, Mars Attacks, “ We still have 2 branches of government, and that ain’t bad!”
