BREAKING: SUPREME COURT RULES MANDATE SURVIVES AS A TAX – Roberts Sides With Liberal Judges

In the Dissenting Opinion of Justices Alito, Thomas, Kennedy, and Scalia: “YOU’VE EXTENDED FEDERAL POWER TO VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING.  …IT EXCEEDS ALL FEDERAL POWER.”  ObamaCare allows the Federal government to tell us when and what we will buy.

The Supreme Court ruled Obamacare mandate UNCONSTITUTIONAL today but it Survives As A Tax!!

Roberts sides with liberal judges.

After 828 days, the Supreme Court has ruled.

Drudge reported:
SUPREME COURT RULES:
Mandate survives as a tax…
Chief Justice Roberts joins the left of the Court…
The Medicaid provision is limited but not invalidated…
‘Congress had the power to impose the exaction in Section 5000A under the taxing power, and that Section 5000A need not be read to do more than impose a tax. This is sufficient to sustain it. ‘

The court reinforces that individuals can simply refuse to pay the tax and not comply with the mandate.

    Hope it’s good news, and not an equivocation.

  • MAJ Mike

    Well, conflicting interpretations of the ruling. Apparently the individual mandate will survive as a tax. Same sh!t, different name.

    We’ll see.

    No, the SCOTUS does not rule ObamaCare un-Constitutional, they have upheld it.

    Bring forth the vat of pudding.

    Does not seem clear cut – shouldn’t be a surprise. Roberts joined the left on this is surprising.

  • bear

    Mandate upheld. Doesn’t sound like rejection to me.

    Roberts joined the Left on their ruling against SB1070, so I’m not surprised.

  • Todd

    According to a headline on Drudge, the Supreme’s did not reject Obamacare?

  • Gary

    John Roberts sold us out.

    It’s up to Romney now.

    The House can refuse to fund the program and whoever administers it. Cut off the money and let it wither away.

    More taxes. Of course.

    I love how it took those, what are they, 9 idiots 828 days to read the US Constitution and the Democrats’ worthless bill and then come to this conclusion.

    Supreme courts need to go. Make it jury duty style. 9 random citizen are given the Constitution, read it base their decision on it. Nobody needs “constitutional law scholars”. The Constitution is very clear, pretty much in every civilized country. So let that “Constitutional jury” read it, then read the bill in question and let them decide.

    Also Stolen Valor is apparently unconstitutional as well.
