What are now the status of the waivers, the exemptions, etc. for a tax, which should be equally applied?
Do religious groups like Muslims have a right to not play?
Do the waivers to the various companies still have effect?
Do the unions still have an exemption?
If Catholics must pay for birth control, why do other religions have the right to claim an exemption, since we are no longer honoring the religious precepts of long standing?
Now that it is a tax, what are the effects on what has happened which is based on the fact that it is not assumed to be a tax prior to this date?
Also, I would like a tax on any person who refused to own a handgun with at least a magazine capacity of 7 cartridges, and that tax will be 1% of the Adjusted gross income of the taxpayer. The purpose is to alleviate the high costs of crime and the burgeoning court costs.
In pre-revolutionary American, many localities had ordinances that required gun ownership to support the militia. The Constitution allows for the maintenance of a militia, so there is more support for that idea, than for health care.
As long as I am going to be taxed eventually for not buying solar, for not eating veggie burgers, and for not being polite, then I at least one everyone armed.
I am with you. I too am literally sick over the ruling yesterday. In fact, I think I am sicker, angrier, and more depressed today than I was after 9-11....
Rush is not following the “John Roberts really did the best thing for us because...”.
Rush says Roberts should be ashamed of himself. He straight up made up law yesterday.
Rush says he’s sick over it, too. All the people trying to spin this as some sort of victory for our side are overly optimistic.
I wonder if Rush’s friend Clarence Thomas discussed anything with him on this after the ruling?
A mandate is a mandate is a mandate and a penalty is a penalty is a penalty. It matters not the vehicle used by the government to enforce it or levy it.
This is no different than me driving past a federal park that has a $5 admission fee and being told I must pay $4 for not entering. No one in their right mind could reasonably argue that I was not being punished for failing to enter the park.
You have to go extreme to roil this.
That's my take on it. Obamacare is unconstitutional. What Roberts did was even worse. But Roberts has never been really conservative...
I disagree with Rush. Fraud WAS committed, but it happened when this obamanation of a bill was passed, not yesterday. We were told “this is not a tax” yet when they went before the Supreme Court, they used “it’s a tax” as their 3rd line of argumentation. Justice Roberts didn’t put that argument forth, the Obama lawyers did. Then the SCOTUS had to consider the constitutionality of all three arguments and threw ACA under the bus on the first two, but could not do so on the third. The constitution does give Congress unlimited power to tax, Article 1 Section 8, and Roberts didn’t right that either...
The SCOTUS has always been the most likely flashpoint for a second American civil war.
I saw you make the same point on another thread and it is a good one. Thanks for reposting it here....
Rush: We can’t count on the Supreme Court to uphold the Constituion.
Agreed, and IMO now the bill should go back to the house to have the tax voted upon.
I have to say that it is extemely dangerous for me to listen to the opening monologue today. This decision yesterday is making me feel a little “postal”. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! My head is spinning!!!!!
With Roe v. Wade, they already demonstrated their willingness to distort the Constitution to find justification for advancing the Progressive agenda.
This is just another example.
Totally a depressing day.
