Here is Peter Suderman of Reason Magazine shedding some light on at least one of the positives that we can take away from the Obamacare ruling.
The day of the ruling I was in shock and expressed that I couldn't believe that Justice Roberts had turned over to the dark side. But as more information came flowing in I realized that Roberts may have given the conservatives a big gift, labeling the penalty as a tax since the IRS is going to be the agency responsible for collecting the penalty tax for those who refuse to purchase insurance. This puts a major kink in Obama and the Democrats claim that the penalty is not a tax which also goes against their pledge not to raise taxes on middle income earners. One major tidbit of information that came to light was that the Obama administration's attorney actually argued that the penalty was a tax in front of the Supreme Court. I was under the impression that Roberts had improvised his own arguments or reasoning to be able to uphold Obamacare. But I was wrong. I am so thankful to know that because if he had that would have been some judicial activism pretzel logic. Here is a video which shows White House chief of staff Jack Lew stunned after he hears the audio of the Obama lawyer arguing that the Obamacare penalty is a tax.
There is more positive news among the dark news of the Affordable Care Act being declared to be constitutional. I will let John Carey of Sentry Journal fill you in on some positive aspects of the health care decision with his excellent article John Roberts: Missing the mark or right on target?
The Blaze has also posted Five reasons why the Obamacare decision might not be as bad as you think. Mytheos Holt of The Blaze and John from Sentry Journal both came up with pretty much the same reasons.That's pretty amazing when you think about it. In my opinion that substantiates that theirs is some rock solid logic.
As much as I can't stand the way the court ruled on Obamacare I am in full agreement with John and Mytheos. Now it is up to us and the rest of the American people in November to choose states rights, free market capitalism, liberty, and freedom over mandates, strangling policies of over-regulation, massive federal government expansion, and tyranny.
