Today the Supreme Court of the United States upheld President Obama's massive intrusion into the lives of Americans via healthcare. The individual mandate was considered unconstitutional as commerce, but it was deemed constitutional as a tax. President Obama and his team, of course, argued repeatedly that this was NOT a tax, then went to court and argued it as such. This from a President who promised time and time again that he would not raise taxes. Now he owns the largest tax increase in the history of the country.
This is a sad day for America and our freedoms. The government has no business getting between individuals and their doctors. This will, of necessity, result in health care rationing, as Governor Palin pointed out and termed death panels. Obamacare must be repealed and replaced.
This is just one aspect of the "fundamental transformation of America" that Obama promised. By the time he's finished, will we recognize this country at all?
On the other hand, has this awakened the sleeping giant, who will rail against this disaster?
