The Supreme Court is ready to rule on the question of subsidies for Obamacare anytime this month. Chances are they have already voted on it and the decision is being written up as I write this and will be announced soon.
This will go one of two ways, kind of like a simple decision tree. Either in an effort to again re-write what the law actually says one or more of the Justices will “find” something in there that justifies it and rule in favor of Obama and the subsidies, thus protecting Obamacare yet again from complete destruction, which is where it should have went years ago. Personally, this is what I believe will happen. I don’t trust that traitor John Roberts to rule on what the law actually says. He will go through legal gymnastics as he did the first time and rule in favor of Obama.
However in the very small chance that I am wrong and the Justices rule against Obama the subsidies will be found illegal and the law will quickly begin to cave in, which brings an interesting problem to bear. The Republicans want changes to the law. Obama doesn’t want anything changed. He [Obama] will dig in and throw a temper tantrum and vow to veto any changes to his precious socialized healthcare program.
The Republicans will be able to pass a reform bill, but Obama will refuse to sign it. The only bill he will sign will be one that makes the subsidies legal without any other changes whatsoever. Meanwhile in approximately 37 states the cost of health insurance will streak into the stratosphere for many people that are receiving subsidies. The policies will become completely unaffordable and they will lose them and possibly be fined for not having insurance they simply cannot afford. These people will begin screaming for blood.
Meanwhile the spineless Republicans will become terrified that the Mongol hordes screaming for their government gravy in the form of subsidies are calling for their heads. They will buckle under the pressure as they always do and give Obama exactly what he wants to pacify both Obama and the Mongol hordes.
Amazingly the same thing happened 2,000 years ago in Rome when the barbarians showed up at the gates of Rome and sacked the city. Only this time the barbarians are already in the city gates and the only thing that will pacify them is for the spineless Republicans to throw more government gravy pacify and shut them up for now, but they will be back. They always come back and they want more and more.
This will not stop until we have another party willing to make the tough decisions (Libertarians) or the system collapses as it is doing right now in Greece. Isn’t it amazing how history just keeps repeating itself over and over again and politicians are dumb enough to believe it will somehow come out differently THIS time.
A case sitting before the Supreme Court right now known as King v. Burwell has all the potential to deliver a death blow to Obamacare. The crux of the case is that the law specifically reads that only states that have state run exchanges qualify for Federal subsidies. There are over 30 states they don’t have a state run exchange, which means the Federal tyrants have set up an exchange for them, wasn’t that sweet of them. The states that have no state exchange are technically not entitled to stolen tax payer money subsidies.
It doesn’t help the progressive idiots that used some of the most convoluted shamslieskick backs “rules” to get this passed and as a result didn’t get to actually clean up this monstrosity. Now they are claiming they never intended for it to not cover everyone. Of course this to is a lie. It was specifically written this way to bribeforce create incentives the states to set up their own exchanges. Many of them did not and now Obama and his criminal henchman in Congress are in a bit of a pickle as they offer up additional liesexcuseslame reasoning explanation for what they meant.
The question of course is will the SCOTUS rule as they should, which is to say looking at the letter of the law where it specifically says state run exchanges are the only ones able to receive stolen tax payer loot and rule as they should by the letter of the law.
Since that traitor, John Roberts had to perform such complex legal gymnastics the first time to find this piece of crap “Constitutional” by essentially re-writing it on the fly I am not hopeful that he will rule any differently this time. He will probably accept the lies from the progressives that they intended this to be the case from the beginning, apply a huge dose of legal gymnastics again and again vote in their favor. After you add up the other 4 guaranteed Obama votes from the 4 liberal Justices you will get another 4/5 decision. In fact, I am so sure this is what will happen I think it is as close to a sure bet as you can get.
We should know in a few short months. The anticipation is killing me…NOT!
Here is an interesting opinion piece about the recent snubbing Obama gave to France after their recent terror attacks. The piece does a good job at outlining the reasons for this. Basically, Obama is more interested in looting hardworking Americans of their earnings in an effort to make the world “equal”. So in the name of equality he continues to ignore serious terrorist threats. Nice. The piece goes on to point out that is has been Obama’s mission since the beginning.
Unfortunately what Obama doesn’t understand is that you can’t have equal outcomes until you have equal inputs. In other words it is a fact of life that some people work harder, longer and are simply more talented than others. Those people will generally put more into life to get more out. Those that don’t will often be on the bottom and stay there. Idiots like Obama want to somehow punish those individuals that work harder and make everyone and everything equal so that regardless of what you put in or are capable of putting in you get the same out as the next guy who didn’t do this. In short, socialism.
Using terms like “JV Team” when describing terrorist is designed to put out the message that these guys aren’t a serious threat so we can go back to his favorite topics of looting, spreading the wealth, socialism and robbing the “rich” to give to the poor. The only thing is the terrorist don’t seem to care what Obama is interested in talking about or doing. They are still plotting and planning and will keep attempting to carry out attacks against the west.
No doubt as in France these attacks will mostly likely be these lone wolf types we have been seeing pop up and will happen both overseas and sadly on American shores, eventually. This makes it even more important that Americans continue to protect their 2nd Amendment rights. Your ability to protect yourself may eventually be all that stands between these terrorist psychopaths and your own life or your family’s life. We certainly can’t count on Obama to take the threats seriously.
And this folks is what happens when you elect a JV guy to be President because of all the free stuff he promises to steal from the “rich” to give to you.
