Supreme court forces politicians to be honest

Posted: July 2, 2012 - 8:43am

Chief Justice Roberts may have made the best decision in calling the health care law what it actually is, the single largest tax ever implemented in the history of our nation. It was interesting to see the politicos and pundits, not get the meaning of his ruling, they are generally pleased with themselves and celebratory over having pushed through "The Affordable Healthcare Act" only to have the "enemy" agree with them that they can have the health care act but only because they have the authority to tax, they can not mandate that we participate without the teeth required to enforce it. Generally a part of the public that has been parasitic on our society will continue to be just as spoiled as always and now we have a Tax Law that allows everyone of us to continue to support them in a fashion they have become accustomed. This is only the first installment on the simplification of health care as we know it. Next will be the algorithmic approach to healthcare, the removal of compassion and empathy of the provider and the inevitable loss of the "Art of Medicine." Patients will be treated as a particular entities/ailments rather then as a human being, the treatment will be the same in Alaska as in Florida and the inevitable will still be the same as it was in 1899 -- everyone will die and the cause of death will be heart failure. Fortunately the real heart of the matter will be with those of us who vote and think. This is the time for everyone to read the writing on the outhouse wall, and to be blunt, this is like the business done there -- "it ain't over till the paperwork is done." Full implementation is in 2014. At least think about it.

Roberts

I'm not so sure Roberts didn't have the bigger picture in mind, 63%of the American people were against Obama care..

brilliant assessment of the oppression of middle America

absolutely positively the best written piece on this topic. I'm going to read it over a few times more, it is well worth it.

For those who are ignorant enough to believe in fairy tales and unicorns, the 150 million people that do not pay taxes now. they will never pay a penny for this free health care that they receive. never have,never will.

He is waiting patiently to become the voting majority.

He is waiting patiently to become the voting majority.

Consider what will happen when the ‘minority’ of moochers become the majority in the near future. They will then vote into office nothing but corrupt government thieves who will give them everything. Everything that they need, and EVERYTHING that they want. Think about the PIGS: Portugal, Ireland, Greece, and Spain. Throw in Communist dominated France and you have your future in sight.

Hillary care proceded Romney care, give the girl her props.

The Idea of Federally controlled health care originated with Bill and Hillary Clinton in the 90’s. Give credit where credit is due.

It’s a good thing that the liberals have developed the method of using simple one-liners for their believers to chant. ‘Cause it takes a lot of brain power to remember what is really going on, and bring it to the forefront of consciousness. Simple themes can be memorized by simple minds. Unfortunately the new chant pushed out the old one.

Not that she was the first Progressive to promote it, however in our recent history Hillary Rodham Clinton (you’ve heard of her as she was married to the President) was the biggest politician to bring about public attention to universal health care. Hillary Care was her attempt to overhaul the Federal system and that was in 1993. She’d not be pleased that she has been disregarded and left out of the discussion. Her plan was to require all Americans to buy health care. Now this puffed up peacock shows up and doesn’t even give her a wink and a nod for her previous efforts. If he gets defeated I'm giving her credit as the Clintons do not take insults kindly.

As to Governor Romney he was a representative of the people of his Blue state. They are Democrats and they put together a Hillary Care program of their own. He approved their program, it’s their state, and they can do what they want. States Rights are the foundation of the United States. That’s where the 'United' part comes in. Each state may elect to do as they lawfully please. For the American people it means they can move from state to state (live free – the pursuit of happiness) to find a place that they are happy to live in.

The Boston Herald has reported that Romneycare has cost 18,000 jobs in that state. That's like putting the whole Kenai Peninsula out of jobs.So are you going to argue that Romneycare is wonderful, or are you going to argue that Romneycare puts people out of work and is horrible. The truth is somewhere inbetween the extremes.

Hill-care

When they rolled out her plan it was like 40,000 pages if I remember correctly. At the time even the dumbacrats thought it was a bad idea.It could have been the straw that cost Clinton his majority

With all the communistic, un-American and slick pulling scams that obama has pulled on the citizens of the United States of America...it is sad to see that we still have uneducated, unemployed welfare basketcases (such as yourself) who support that [filtered word].

It shows how well obama is succeeding in fooling the stupids of nation to believe "Hopey Changey"

WOW..very impressive spwright! Don't panic, your check will still be arrive next month!

The Founding Fathers supported individual mandates

The founding fathers, it turns out, passed several mandates of their own. In 1790, the very first Congress—which incidentally included 20 framers—passed a law that included a mandate: namely, a requirement that ship owners buy medical insurance for their seamen. This law was then signed by another framer: President George Washington. That’s right, the father of our country had no difficulty imposing a health insurance mandate.

That’s not all. In 1792, a Congress with 17 framers passed another statute that required all able-bodied men to buy firearms. Yes, we used to have not only a right to bear arms, but a federal duty to buy them. Four framers voted against this bill, but the others did not, and it was also signed by Washington. Some tried to repeal this gun purchase mandate on the grounds it was too onerous, but only one framer voted to repeal it.

Six years later, in 1798, Congress addressed the problem that the employer mandate to buy medical insurance for seamen covered drugs and physician services but not hospital stays. And you know what this Congress, with five framers serving in it, did? It enacted a federal law requiring the seamen to buy hospital insurance for themselves. That’s right, Congress enacted an individual mandate requiring the purchase of health insurance. And this act was signed by another founder, President John Adams.
