The Upside to Chief Justice Roberts’ Ruling on Obamacare Today

Whoa Nelly.

There’s been a lot of anger stirred up by Chief Justice Roberts’ deciding vote on Obamacare today.

But before you get too worked up, consider this perspective from I.M. Citizen:

Chief Justice Roberts actually ruled the mandate, relative to the commerce clause, was unconstitutional. That’s how the Democrats got Obama-care going in the first place. This is critical. His ruling means Congress can’t compel American citizens to purchase anything. Ever. The notion is now officially and forever, unconstitutional. As it should be.

Next …

Roberts gave them a tax. It is now the official law of the land — beyond word-play and silly shenanigans. Obama-care is funded by tax dollars. Democrats now must defend a tax increase to justify the Obama-care law.

Finally …

Chief Justice Roberts struck down as unconstitutional, the Obama-care idea that the federal government can bully states into complying by yanking their existing medicaid funding. Liberals, through Obama-care, basically said to the states — ‘comply with Obama-care or we will stop existing funding.’ Roberts ruled that is a no-no. If a state takes the money, fine, the Feds can tell the state how to run a program, but if the state refuses money, the federal government can’t penalize the state by yanking other funding. Therefore, a state can decline to participate in Obama-care without penalty. This is obviously a serious problem. Are we going to have 10, 12, 25 states not participating in “national” health-care? Suddenly, it’s not national, is it?

Ultimately, Roberts supported states rights by limiting the federal government’s coercive abilities. He ruled that the government can not force the people to purchase products or services under the commerce clause and he forced liberals to have to come clean and admit that Obama-care is funded by tax increases.

Another benefit of this ruling?

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign said on Thursday it had raised $3.2 million following the Supreme Court’s decision upholding President Barack Obama’s health care law.

Go ahead, Mr. President – gloat. Enjoy your remaining time in office because November? Is fast approaching …

If the Government Deems You Obese, They Will Force You to Go to Counseling

“”The AP reported Monday that ALL obese adults receive “intensive counseling” in an effort to rein in a growing health crisis in America. This “Preventative Services Task Force”, TASK FORCE, urging doctors to identify patients, name names, who have a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or more, which is considered obese in this country. Doctors are either to provide intense counseling themselves, because doctors have a lot of free time on their hands, or refer the patient to a program which is designed to improve weight loss and health prospects.’ Isn’t this wonderful? This is precisely the thing that the Left said wouldn’t happen. Anyone who claimed that it would was just trying to scare you, where your doctor would have to report you to the government if you fell under the government’s category of obese so that you would go under government-required intense therapy. But hey! IT’S FREE!! HEALTHCARE IS FREE!! IT’LL MAKE IT AFFORDABLE AND FREE!! Oh, the strings attached. And this is what happens when it’s “free” to you. The person who controls the purse strings controls YOU.”

Is it worth it? Is it? When you give someone, or some entity, like the government, control over some aspect of your life, you no longer have any authority to make your own decisions. You are at the mercy of that person, or entity.

NOTHING IS FREE, FOLKS. Everything has a price. And Obamacare? Will cost you your freedom to make your own decisions when it comes to your own body. I’m not willing to pay that price.

I pray every night that this piece of sh*t legislature gets overturned. And I pray nightly that we get rid of this power-hungry dictator in November. Give me back my freedoms!

Yo.

Obesity Screening: Doctors Urged To Routinely Check Patients’ BMIs
Huffington Post kills me – doctors won’t be URGED to check patient’s BMI’s, they will be REQUIRED to check BMI’s and REPORT obese people, and that’s obese by the government’s standards, so that they, the obese people, can be ORDERED to go to counseling. There’s no urging, folks. That makes it sound like it’s a choice, that it’s a good deed on the doctor’s part. No. The choice was taken away the MOMENT this stupid, asinine law was passed. I hope you’re happy, Liberals, because this is the beginning of the end of personal freedoms and choice.
