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!!
After 828 days, the Supreme Court has ruled.
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.
