And Now, The Reality

Despite the absurd ruling by turncoat Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Junta, the individual mandate is a power grab, not a tax — not that there is any shortage of taxes in ObamaCare, as Americans for Tax Reform documents:

1. Excise tax on charitable hospitals ($50,000 per hospital hike).
2. Codification of the “economic substance doctrine” ($4.5 billion tax hike).
3. “Black liquor” tax hike ($23.6 billion hike).
4. Tax on innovator drug companies ($2.3 billion).
5. Blue Cross/Blue Shield tax hike ($400 million).
6. Tax on indoor tanning services ($2.7 billion).
7. Medicine cabinet tax ($5 billion).
8. HSA withdrawal tax hike ($1.4 billion).
9. Employer reporting of insurance on W2.
10. Surtax on investment income ($123 billion).
11. Hike in Medicare payroll tax ($86.8 billion).
12. Tax on medical device manufacturers ($20 billion).
13. Raise haircut for medical itemized deduction ($15.2 billion).
14. Special needs kids tax ($13 billion).
15. Elimination of tax deduction for employer-provided retirement Rx drug coverage.
16. Annual executive compensation limit for health insurance executives ($600 million).
17. Individual mandate excise “tax”.
18. Employer mandate tax.
19. Tax on health insurers ($60.1 billion).
20. Excise tax on comprehensive health insurance plans ($32 billion).

In return for all the $billions upon $billions being looted from us, we get to watch vast armies of petty tyrant bureaucrats cut us off from our healthcare system.
Ramming ObamaCare down the country’s throat despite mass public resistance is the Manchurian Moonbat’s only achievement of any significance whatsoever. He ran on the incessantly repeated promise that he would not raise taxes “one dime” on 98% of Americans. That is, he ran on a brazen lie. Yet there are people who would vote for him again...

Borrowed from Moonbattery...

QUOTABLE QUOTES

"So Obamacare is nothing more than the largest tax increase in the history of the world. And the people who were characterizing it as such were right and were telling the truth. We have the biggest tax increase in the history of the world right in the middle of this country's worst recessions. In fact, as the Vice President said yesterday 'a depression for millions of Americans.'

The Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, John Roberts, said 'it's not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices. Not our job.' Well what about when we are deceived? The court upheld a law that was not what we were told it would be.

What has been upheld is fraud. And the Internal Revenue Service has just become Barack Obama's domestic army..."

I heard a tax guy on the radio yesterday who says Roberts will become the Savior of this YET for the Conservative side.

He allows that by writing his brief on the 'For Side', he put in the word TAX, so frequently, that it's pointing people to the HOW part of killing not only this pig, but many other tax or die sections of federal law.

I'm not a lawyer, I don't even play one on TV, but this economist / tax guy was saying ALL taxes can be easily repealed by the NEXT Congress or one 30 years from now if need be. He says Roberts opened the door for removing a lot of Federal Regulation. I question whether thee are smart enough people un DC to use it.

That's a real good point bud, which is why, after thinking, i'm not ready to hang Roberts. I watched his confirmation hearings and watched how the "best-of-the-Left" tried their best to tie him in knots. And failed. This is a "very" sharp guy. Remember, "what you see is not always what you get". He just may be a lot smarter than we're giving him credit for. Maybe.

The only thing I liked about Obamacare was that children...in particular college students, could maintain health coverage under their parents' plan until age 26.

But what the poli"ticks" slipped in was the the military retiree coverage, which we pay a premium for unless we live on a military base (Omar Bradley was the last retiree accorded that privelage), is exempt from that requirement....so, once your kids turn 21, they are out the door.

I love the way politicians honor the military that defends this country.

From the Roberts decision:

“The Government’s tax power argument asks us to view the statute differently than we did in considering its com­merce power theory,” writes Roberts. “In making its Commerce Clause argument, the Government defended the mandate as a regulation requiring individuals to purchase health in­surance. The Government does not claim that the taxing power allows Congress to issue such a command. Instead, the Government asks us to read the mandate not as order­ing individuals to buy insurance, but rather as imposing a tax on those who do not buy that product.”

“The most straightforward reading of the mandate is that it commands individuals to purchase insurance,” Roberts says as he begins the process by which he transforms the “penalty” he discussed earlier into the “tax” he will discuss now.

“After all, it states that individuals ‘shall’ maintain health insurance,” Roberts continues. “Congress thought it could enact such a command under the Commerce Clause, and the Government primarily defended the law on that basis. But, for the reasons explained above, the Com­merce Clause does not give Congress that power. Under our precedent, it is therefore necessary to ask whether the Government’s alternative reading of the statute—that it only imposes a tax on those without insurance—is a rea­sonable one.

“Under the mandate, if an individual does not maintain health insurance, the only consequence is that he must make an additional payment to the IRS when he pays his taxes,” says Roberts. “That, according to the Government, means the mandate can be regarded as establishing a condition—not owning health insurance—that triggers a tax—the required payment to the IRS.”

So, it IS a tax, AND a penalty.
