Florida AG Bondi to Newsmax: How We’ll Defeat Obamacare
.newsmax.com ^ | 23 Mar 2012 | Martin Gould and Kathleen Walter

Posted on 03/25/2012 7:38:25 AM PDT by forbushalltheway

President Barack Obama’s healthcare initiative is the biggest attempt at a government overreach in U.S. history, Pam Bondi, Florida’s attorney general, who is leading the fight against the program, tells Newsmax.TV.

And that is why Bondi is confident the Supreme Court will vote to overturn the Affordable Care Act after three days of hearings next week.

“We’re optimistic that they will rule in our favor because this is so much bigger than healthcare,” said Bondi in an exclusive interview. “It’s the biggest attempt at an overreach in our history. So we have to fight it and we have to stop it.

Complete video of yesterday’s anti-Obamacare Tea Party rally in DC. It was a high energy event and a very good turnout. Hermain Cain speaks near the end of the video:

Is this the same Pam Bondi who was bragging about RomneyCare a month ago?

She gave an interview and kept trying to “sell” RomneyCare as a good idea on the state level (for other states to adopt).

I hope Pam is right but I am less optimistic.

The history of the Supreme Court has been to support the increasing reach and power of the federal government, and ignore constitutional limits on federal power.

The prevailing court stance on the “commerce clause” places no practical limits at all on federal government over-reach.

When the Supreme Court decided the federal government has the power to dictate how much wheat you may grow on your own farm for local, itra-state, consumption because it affects inter-state commerce they abandoned any pretense of being a fair arbiter of constitutionality to become cheerleaders for the expansion of federal powers.

A related issue could be the matter of Obamacare forcing people to buy private insurance. This would seemingly violate a basic principle of contract law. I have no legal training but do know that a contract is a mutual agreement between two parties.

“I hope Pam is right but I am less optimistic.

Right you are.

Just look what they did with the Kelo decision.

No way to predict at this point. But one factor working in our favor (and it has nothing to do with law and much to do with emotions) is the nose-rubbing that the Obama administration has given to the conservative members of the Court. Perhaps, just perhaps, they have enough dander worked up to “push back”.

As important as the Obamacare decision will be, there is another issue coming down the pike that has the potential to become “the decision of the century”, perhaps as was the Dredd Scott decision for the nineteenth century. It may be years away yet, but it will be the Court’s opinion on whether “National Popular Vote” (the movement by which states will collude to circumvent the Electoral College) is ruled to be Constitutional or not....

That’s the decision that may indeed kindle the next “secession”....

I heard Laura Ingraham say that she thinks i will go 7-2 and not in a good way. Paul Gigot feels the same way and said it’s becoming the belief of most Washington Conservatives. They both doubt that Kennedy will be the swing vote because that would look much too political. Daniel Hennigan said that if this law stands we are France.

George Will wrote a good article the other day about 0-care’s violation of basic contract law. Essentially basic contract law holds that neither party can be coerced into entering into a private contract. And because the mandate demands that individuals enter into private contracts with insurance companies, these contracts are void if one party objects.
The bottom line is that if the mandate prevails for whatever reason, the Constitution will be void, and there will be no limits on government. It would then be the obligation of the citizen to resist, obfuscate and overthrow such an illegal government.

MassachusettsMandate Mitt Fascists vs. Federal Communists. Both totally against individual rights, and The Bill of Rights.

The Fascists would like to “appear” it going to “states.” When in fact it goes to big fascists “insurance” companies, telling us what to do, for their own investments NOT health.

The Federal Communists, want the Federal government under duress and threat of force, to leach right into everyones savings directly..... 15 trillion of them.

They’re trying to propaganda the issue into only the two above, in attempt to take over every persons body. Right out of the Satanic Hitler hell book. Period.

Pam Bondi looks like a Hooters waitress.

I don’t allow Hooters waitresses to dictate if/when I can receive medical care, based on age/cost charts.

Nor would I allow a skinny moslem communist married to Sasquatch to dictate my medical care.

The commies just don’t get it. They’re delighted to crush the life/liberty of 300,000,000 Americans.... as long as there’s no consequence to themselves.

But the moment we say “Try that, and we’ll make sure you suffer consequence X Y and maybe even Z,” they get verrrrry worried, b/c they know they’re trying to oppress three hundred MILLION Americans, and we’re not going down without the fight of our lives.

Just like moslems, the communists are cowards — only effective in mobs, and only effective when the game is rigged in their favor.

Moslems and communists are easily routed when you take the fight to them. They scatter like spooked cockroaches.

It’s our obligation to periodically remind moslems, and communists, that we weren’t placed on this earth to become lab rats for their Islamonazi and Marxist experiments.

Those who are pushing that envelope are also ENDORSING that Bari, Barry Soetoro, Soebarkah, Harrison J. Bounell, Steve Dunham, the illegal alien and usurper p-Resident in the W.H. aka BHO is eligible as a NBC. I voted for Pam, but I now regret!!!

I have seen analysis where this will come down to the vote of one guy, Kennedy, whose clerk for many years has predicted will side with the commies on the Commerce Clause.

Kennedy has a long history of expanding it's reach.

So it actually looks pretty bad for beating this in the Obscene Court.

If Marco Rubio is elected VP in November, he would have to resign as Senator before January 20, 2013 and Gov. Scott would name a temporary senator to serve until a special election is held in November 2014. I would be surprised, though, if Gov. Scott named Pam Bondi to the Senate. I believe that Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll is a more likely choice, as would Adam Putnam or (if, God forbid, he loses in his new district) Allen West.

Rubio is eligible.

As Impy pointed out in another thread, Rubio was born in the USA to resident alien parents. that makes him eligible.

Naming himself to the Senate is one thing that Scott almost certainly couldn’t do (not that there’s a SCOTUS case on point or anything). Scott could resign and have new Governor Carroll appoint, him, though, and perhaps he could travel out of state and have Carroll, as Acting Governor, appoint him.

But why would Scott want to get himself appointed to the Senate (the track record for governors who have done that is not good) and then have to face the voters in both 2014 and 2016 instead of just running for reelection as governor in 2014?

NO he’s NOT, even if he was born on 4th. July in the Lincoln Bedroom!

Rubio, Sr. arrived here in Florida 1956-57 being a Cuban citizen. He became a naturalized citizen in 1975-76!!

Rubio, Jr. is born 1971 four years BEFORE father was naturalized. So the same as Bari’s father was/is a Kenyan/British citizen made him a foreign citizen. IF bari is born in the U.S., which is very doubtful, he can ONLY be a “Native” citizen, and the same for Rubio, Jr. and HE knows that, because he ALWAYS sidestepping the issue when the media trying to press him. There’s NO distiction in the CONSTITUTION whether you are a democRAT or a pubbie!!!

Megyn Kelly said last week she was really on the fence about her prediction but was leaning towards it being overturned. FWIW.

Considering how complicated the tax code is as it is, it does seem hard for me to believe that the court would find something fundamentally unconstitutional about a checkbox on your tax return that indicates whether you are exempt from a certain tax or not. Taxes are already about as arbitrary as they can get.

Dude/dudette, you have some deeply routed psychological disorders. You'd fit in perfectly at DU and Daily Kos.

Luckily for you there are cures for your disorders. A few of them are:

Try gargling with broken glass. Or even better, play Russian Roulette with either an automatic pistol or a fully loaded revolver. Your choice. You'll find any of these treatments to be very, very effective at treating your disorders.

Now go crawl back under whatever rock you came from and FOAD.
