That governmental attitude describes in a nutshell a lot of what is wrong in this country. Obscure regulations, written in the dark to implement unclear laws that few legislators have read or thought about, sporadically and arbitrarily enforced by faceless, unelected bureuacrats, enable precisely the sort of takings the Founders sought to prevent.
This has 2nd Amendment response required written all over it but just like every other time the government has exceeded their limited authority the sheep will just go on eating what little is left for them.
The difference between a serf and a slave is that a slave knows he’s a slave.
Don’t get too excited.
Roberts will call it a “tax” even though it’s not in the statute, and uphold it. He can even cut and paste some of the decision.
I’d like to know what the RAC employees’ salaries are.
If they lose and have to give 47% to the Fed, leave that portion in the field and tell them to pick it themselves.
This “law” is so wrong.
That is the ONLY reason for Regulation of a Free Market, and the bullshit stories/talking points about "protecting consumers", "helping the middle class", helping "the poor, hungry, elderly, and chil'ren" are all smokescreens and PR stunts.
Spending to buy votes and remain employed is the lifetime goal of ALL politicians.....
This was unconstitutional when socialist-fascist FDR put it in place back in the 30s.
Democrats and the democrat party are on the same pages as the National Socialist Democrat Party and Mussolini’s regime. They almost destroyed the U.S. economy and the Constitution back then and even during the war they did grave damage to various areas of the economy due to their attempts to completely control the economy. The only thing that at least partly saved us is that FDR died and even at that he sold out eastern Europe and his policies caused a severe recession following the end of the war.
Among several writings on this, one of the most interesting is The Roosevelt Myth by John Flynn. Very revealing and it seems to be a doppelganger of the last four years.
