Skip to comments.ObamaTax Repeal Is Filibuster Proof!
Posted on 06/29/2012 7:48:48 AM PDT by NOBO2012
Yesterday was full of stunning decisions:
First, of course, the Supreme Court delivered their decision on Obamacare() and the Commerce Clause () more on that later...
...Its probably because I was so distracted by all the blowback from the Supreme Court decision and wasnt paying close enough attention.
Fortunately, Clarice American Thinker author, D.C. attorney and resident MOL - was all over the case. Heres her final analysis; its an OUTSTANDING review of why yesterdays Supreme Court Decision isnt as bad as you might think. DO NOT and I mean NOT miss Clarices Pieces today on American Thinker (I know its not Sunday yet, butt this is BIG): Obamacare: Things Are Now Up For Grabs.
It will help put things in perspective, make you feel better and load you up for the long game. As Mary first mentioned yesterday, Clarice elaborates on how the barn door on the Commerce Clause has finally been closed (after we lost most of our ponies, butt still ) and points out few things that you may not have thought about yet, including, butt not limited to this:
The ball is now in the Republicans' court. They've already scheduled a repeal vote on July 11. Once before the Democrat-controlled Senate was able to scotch the effort by threat of filibuster. Had the mandate stood as mandate they could do so again. But now that it's a tax, it can be passed by a simple majority. And if it is, the president will be forced before the election to veto a repeal of a law a majority of the voters keep indicating they want repealed.

REPEAL JUST THE OBAMATAX INDIVIDUAL MANDATE!
Great, stirring video at the end!
"IT'S constitutional, BITCHES"
Can You say GOP Senate, House and President Roomey
Obama will be FORCED to veto the repeal effort. Gee...the GOP sure has him over a barrel, eh? I’m sure he’ll be simply devastated to be forced to use his veto powers (sarc).
Sorry, but.. somebody is delusional here. I really don’t see an upside to this. Maybe it’s these damned glasses (not rosy enough).
One way to get over it is to repeal dumbocare. Even if not successful, its still fun trying. The alternative is to curl up in a little ball and cry, which is exactly what the lefties want you to do. You are welcome to do that if you want if you are afraid to fight them.
I guess you don’t really understand how people feel about this. I guess we’ll find out in November exactly how deeply people about this.
A bambi veto of a repeal of a huge tax won’t look good right before the election. That is the barrel. Maybe it isn’t much, but its better than nothing.
Roberts is correct. Under the Constitution, the people elect people to make the laws. In 2006 and again in 2008, via their votes, the majority of the American voters said that they wanted to be slaves of the Government, that they prefreeed the Government telling them how, when, and where they could wipe their asses. It was made so.
Not to have a Supreme Court justice change it on the fly to suddenly make it Constitutional, as Roberts did.
No need to repeal it. Obama has set the precedent for how to neuter it - just make it a matter of policy to not enforce it. DOMA, Immigration, Voter rights act, he’s done it successfully several times.
So, an insurance company doesn’t want to cover you because of a preexisting condition? Yeah well, we’re not enforcing that today....
Don’t pay the tax. Illegal? Sure, if we were enforcing that...
I hope so my friend CAUSE right now I’m spiting nails...and they are all aimed at the TURNCOAT ROBERTS!! Bastard could have put this ruling to rest and spare all of us, instead the RATS were given a lifeline! I despise that plastic face pelosi snug bitch! And boner, if we win DON’T GLOAT...with folk like that we are so screwed...plastic pelosi is have a HUGH celebratory party at the Hill, ain’t life wonderful..spit, spit! ROBERTS YOU A**HOLE!!
This continued retcon of Roberts motives is kind of odd. As if someone is leaking talking points from a Chief Justice or for a Chief Justice.
Who’s to say McConnell would have the appetite to repeal Obamacare?
Roberts was WRONG. We have a constitution that protects our liberties. He just ran over the constitution took a dump on it then set it on fire.
Now by a simple 51 Senate vote the government can make you do whatever they want or tax the crap out of you.
Gov’t says you have to buy a GM car or pay a tax.
Gov’t says you have to eat an FDA approved diet or pay a tax.
Gov’t says you have to accept gay marriage and be a little gay yourself or pay a tax.
It must be stated at every opportunity that we only need a simple majority in the Senate and House plus the presidency to REPEAL this regressive massive taxation. Many Conservative minded people are probably thinking there is no hope because of filibuster....
