Are you ready for the broccoli mandate?
What kind of laws are being written when so many Supreme Court rulings are determined 5-4? Laws that are controversial, poorly structured, and don’t clearly possess fundamentally correct (Constitutional and Bill of Rights) strategies as their intellectual foundation.
The result today? The Supremes ignored the Administration’s own words and ruled that Obamacare’s individual mandate is a tax and not a mandate. Between the commerce clause, the ability to seize property, and the ability to tax, what are the limits to governmental power? Only the courts, which seem predisposed to roll over, ignore, or even expand government authority via their awesome judicial wisdom.
This means (albeit by a 5-4 vote; hopefully Justice Roberts will soon enough find his mind which has perhaps been misplaced and not lost) there’s really almost nothing the government can’t make you do (or not do). And it means the Ponzi game of government transfer programs continues unabated.
Get ready for the broccoli
mandate tax (thou shall eat the broccoli or face the penalty of tax…).
And get ready for the economic “recovery”—weak as it was—to pull back into its shell.
