Roberts sided with the socialists on the court. He was the swing vote on this case.
Many states have voted to reject Obamacare.
I have said all along: Look out. The forcing of an 'individual mandate' will be upheld by the IRS with a gun to your head and that's just what old Roberts said.
The states can reject Obamacare, but how are they going to protect their citizens from the IRS?
To say I'm shocked is putting it mildly.
The impostor president said over and over and over the bill was not a tax.
What Roberts and the rest of the !@!#! on the court said is the criminal syndicate (Congress) can force you and me to purchase anything they want to shove down our throats. The court said those gangsters can legislate have the "right" to legislate our behavior. It is truly insane.
"To consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions [is] a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men and not more so. They have with others the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps. Their maxim is boni judicis est ampliare jurisdictionem [good justice is broad jurisdiction], and their power the more dangerous as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves." --Thomas Jefferson to William C. Jarvis, 1820. ME 15:277
