The Supreme Court ruled that the Affordable Care Act was unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause. They also ruled it was unconstitutional as a penalty. In fact, they ruled it unconstitutional in every case, save one. Let’s be clear about this: the Supreme Court reviewed each and every argument forwarded by the government and, in their opinion, disposed of each one except for the argument that it is a tax. So when you hear Nancy Pelosi say that it is not a tax it is a penalty, she is actually agreeing that the ACA is unconstitutional. How can it be otherwise? The Supreme Court ruled that if the funding portions are penalties, it’s unconstitutional — and Pelosi has said, more than once, that they are penalties. Which means she is calling it unconstitutional. This is called reason, logic, and common sense. That shouldn’t be difficult to understand, but were are talking about the person that said the Affordable Care Act would have to be passed first before they found out what was in it. Yeah — oy veh! But just so we’re clear — the Affordable Care Act is a TAX and no amount of lying or spin can change that fact. Now, on to it being unconstitutional as a tax.
The liberals are always telling us how eveyone has a right to choose. Well, more specifically, how women have a right to choose. What they mean is abortion, but they are trying to use euphemism to make the murder of innocent unborn defenseless babies more acceptable. But the important argument here is the right to choose. Remember, rights are not exclusive. That is, a right is not specific to one person or one group. If one person has a right, then all people have that right. It’s like liberals saying that a state is a right to work state. All states are right to work states. What they mean is, the state in question is a forced unionization state. Euphemism again.
Everyone has a right to choose. I have a right to choose — my job, my spouse, where I live, to which organizations I will be charitable, to which church I will attend, with whom I associate — WHETHER OR NOT I NEED HEALTH CARE. Think about that. But now, I will be TAXED for claiming and exercising my right to choose not to get healthcare. Would someone please explain to me what other rights are taxed — voting perhaps? No, that’s a poll tax and is illegal. How about free speech? Can the government tax my right to freedom of religion? What about my right to be secure in my person, house, papers, and effects? That’s the 4th Amendment by the way. Can the IRS search my papers without a warrant? What if there was a law that allowed me to stop any warrant if I pay a tax? Even the ACLU would start their own lawsuit to stop that tax.
And not to forget, liberals claim that healthcare is a right. Okay. Can the government compel me to claim and exercise one of my rights? Nope. Look at it this way. The 1st Amendment protects my right to free speech. Can the government compel me to speak? If they can, then that means the Miranda decision is out the window. The Supreme Court affirmed that the 2nd Amendment means that every citizen has a right to own a firearm for personal defense. Does that mean the government can force me to buy a gun? Nope. If healthcare is a right as liberals claim, can the government compel me to buy healthcare? According to ObamaTax, yes they can. So the liberals can now force me to claim and exercise a constitutional right. How soon before they force me to speak if I get arrested? Remember, it is the democrats that are forcing you to do this.
The fact is, no right can be taxed and no right can be compelled to be exercised. I have a right to choose my healthcare and whether or not I need any. But now, with ObamaTax, if I choose not to get any, my right will be taxed to force me to get healthcare. That’s unconstitutional folks, no matter how you look at it.
Taxing your rights, brought to you by the democrats. It seems the party of choice, isn’t.
