I just don’t get it. Justice Robertson did the unexpected, and he did it in a very, very sneaky way.
When Obama tried to pass his stupid healthcare bill, he emphasized that the penalty for not complying was definitely not a tax. And, why did he do that? To make it more palatable for the American people to swallow, and to make it easier for the courts to uphold.
Well, a penalty like that should be unconstitutional under the interstate trade guidelines. And, the Court saw it that way as well.
Bullshit! Bullshit! Bullshit!
And, this was from a judge who claimed judges should be referees or umpires, and who claimed he wanted to unify the Court.
This is bad – really bad. This country has never had something labeled a tax that is based on – essentially – nothing! We’ve never had what could be called a “head tax” – a tax that is levied just because someone exists. No, every tax we’ve endured has always been based on something. Property. Income. Money transactions.
But now, “they” can tax us for not doing something. Can you imagine where that could lead? Oh! My! God! The inmates are finally in charge of the asylum!
Wow. Earlier this week I felt pretty good about the Court upholding the Arizona immigration law. Now, it seems like a minor, minor victory.
