Obamacare IS Constitutional and is NOT a Tax? Bunk!

Propaganda: Obamacare is NOT a tax! And it’s constitutional!

FACTS:

  • At the Supreme Court, the Obama Administration’s principal argument was: The authority to impose an Individual Mandate penalty rested within the Commerce and Necessary and Proper Clauses of the Constitution.
  • The Supreme Court rejected this argument as unconstitutional, declaring it a significant overreach of Federal authority.
  • However, the Supreme Court held that Obamacare could be construed as a tax and, as a tax, it would not be held unconstitutional. But only as a tax.
  • Obamacare is a tax if it’s constitutional, and it’s unconstitutional if not a tax. Period.

You can read the actual Supreme Court Decision here. Be sure to read the dissenting opinions as well. There’s a tremendous defense of the Constitution and Freedom in Scalia’s dissent.

The White House is spinning to insist on its original argument despite the fact that argument was clearly declared unconstitutional.

 The highest Court in the Land has spoken, as Obama himself acknowledged.
