The Supreme Court just demonstrated we no longer have three separate branches of government, nor a Constitutional Rule of Law. We no longer have any checks and balances. There is no separation of the branches. We are now to be ruled by whoever has the power to tell you what the law is and the guns to enforce it. We can no longer say, you can’t do that because it’s against the law. The law is now whatever they say it is.
Chief Justice Roberts said the law didn’t mean what it said. YES, IT DID! The law says nine times that the state exchanges are the only ones that can give subsidies. Our friend (sarcasm) Jonathan Gruber explained, very clearly, that they wrote the bill to force states to set up exchanges. He explained that their citizens would be paying the tax but if their state didn’t set up exchanges they wouldn’t get the subsidies. They would be paying to help other citizens but not themselves. Gruber was counting on the stupidity of the citizens to pressure their states into setting up the exchanges. Nothing could be clearer that they did, IN FACT, mean what the bill said. So, now the Supreme Court is making law not enforcing it. They just threw out statutory law saying it didn’t mean what it said. Apparently, it is now the job of the Supreme Court to find a way to uphold whatever laws Congress passes, Constitutional or not. What the Court should have done was send the bill back to Congress to amend.
I’m certainly not an expert on the Supreme Court but I don’t believe this has ever happened before. I don’t believe the Court has ever claimed the language of the law didn’t mean what it said. Roberts suggested overturning this portion of the law would cause chaos. That is a very disingenuous argument, considering they are about to overturn Common Law (the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God) as well by ruling in favor of same sex marriage, which will bring more chaos than this country has ever seen.
The “fundamental transformation” Obama promised us is moving faster and faster. Michelle’s promise to change our conversations, our traditions and our history is moving even faster. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4f2j_a_7XkE
I’ve listened to Michelle’s speech numerous times and wondered why no one asked why. We are still (for now) a White majority country. Why wouldn’t our traditions be the dominant ones? Why would we want to “change our history”? What happened in the past……happened. Not teaching it, doesn’t change that it happened. And, as we all know, if you don’t know history, you are destined to repeat it. So, why would anyone want to “change our history”? Why would we want to repeat the mistakes of the past? The only reason I can think of is that they don’t want people to understand the value of our Bill of Rights and Constitution. They don’t want people to understand the value of individual liberty and limited government.
The people who are cheering this ruling, clearly don’t know history or understand the significance of the Rule of Law. We have been a country of Laws, not men. This is a Republic, not a democracy. It was designed to protect our form of government from the low information majority. When people discover they can vote to take money from others, they will.
This administration is bringing in immigrants and refugees from countries that have never known individual liberty and not teaching them the value of our system. This is on purpose. This is how they change our conversation, traditions and history.
This is a very sad day in our history. And, sadly, I suspect tomorrow will be even sadder.
