- Obamacare sucks in every possible way.
- The ruling had a somewhat subtle, but firm slap in the face of Congress, declaring that their use of the Commerce Clause was incorrect and that the authority for the act rested under the Taxation Powers of Congress.
- In joining with the left, John Roberts may have just handed the November election to the GOP. Now the GOP has more to run on that “we’re not Obama”. They’ve got the economy and they’ve got Obamacare. It won’t be hard for them to point out that the costs of Obamacare will be borne by the taxpayers in the middle of a bad economy – a formula that got them a tremendous victory in the House last November. The more I think about it, this whole scenario has a very Karl-Rovesque feel to it, with someone playing a much smarter game than anyone’s realizing.
- The ruling makes Democrats happy today. I liken it to a team who just got a touchdown in a football game. They did, however, miss the extra point and now the other team (the GOP) has excellent field position. The only question is: can our Bringham-Young-graduate QB take it to the paint?

According to Fox news, the CBO has rated the cost of the Iraq war, and compared to the stimulus passed by the Obama administration the numbers are interesting. You can read the Fox News report here.
According to CBO numbers in its Budget and Economic Outlook published this month, the cost of Operation Iraqi Freedom was $709 billion for military and related activities, including training of Iraqi forces and diplomatic operations.
The projected cost of the stimulus, which passed in February 2009, and is expected to have a shelf life of two years, was $862 billion.
Here is another excerpt on the deficit according to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.
The U.S. deficit for fiscal year 2010 is expected to be $1.3 trillion, according to CBO. That compares to a 2007 deficit of $160.7 billion and a 2008 deficit of $458.6 billion, according to data provided by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.

This is a great visual analogy. It’s less than two minutes and well worth a watch. It’s funny, creative and very informative.

The Complete List of Obama Statement Expiration Dates provided by Jim Geraghty at NRO.
Here are some highlights:
STATEMENT: “These negotiations will be on C-SPAN, and so the public will be part of the conversation and will see the decisions that are being made.” January 20, 2008, and seven other times.
EXPIRATION DATE: Throughout the summer, fall, and winter of 2009 and 2010; when John McCain asked about it during the health care summit February 26, Obama dismissed the issue by declaring, “the campaign is over, John.”
STATEMENT: “No family making less than $250,000 will see any form of tax increase.” (multiple times on the campaign trail)
EXPIRATION DATE: Broken multiple times, including the raised taxes on tobacco, a new tax on indoor tanning salons, but most prominently on February 11, 2010: “President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.”
It is rather lenghty, but well worth a read. Here is to “The One” who says one thing and does another. Very typical of Washington and all that dwell there, but I think Obama and his people take it to another level.

I wondered why these companies had not spoken out sooner, when it could have done some good. I suppose this is the answer: they know how vindictive the Democrats are. The Democrats’ reaction would have been even more hostile (and more dangerous to the companies’ well-being) if they had dared to blow the whistle on Obamacare before Congress voted.

“SEC. 4191. MEDICAL DEVICES. (a) IN GENERAL.—There is hereby imposed on the sale of any taxable medical device by the manufacturer, producer, or importer a tax equal to 2.3 percent of the price for which so sold. (b) TAXABLE MEDICAL DEVICE.—For purposes of this section— (1) IN GENERAL.—The term ‘taxable medical device’ means any device (as defined in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act) intended for humans. (2) EXEMPTIONS.—Such term shall not include— (A) eyeglasses, (B) contact lenses, (C) hearing aids, and (D) any other medical device determined by the Secretary to be of a type which is generally purchased by the general public at retail for individual use.’’
That’s right, ladies! Lucky you! You get to pay 2.3% more for your lady stuff. But fear not! In our wonderful politically-correct world, fellas will have to pay more for their fella stuff… I guess that means “condoms”, but I dunno.
Compression stockings for diabetics? 2.3%.
Pill sorters? 2.3%.
ACE Bandages? 2.3%
Breast pumps for pumping milk for babies? 2.3%
Dentures, both partial and full 2.3%
Fetal cell-screening kit 2.3%
Female condoms, single use 2.3% (cuz girls can buy condoms, too!)
Treponemal syphilis test 2.3%
HIV saliva test kit 2.3%
Stair-climbing wheelchair 2.3%
Inflatable penis prosthetics 2.3% (do people actually buy these?)
Hip, knee, ankle, breast prosthetics 2.3%
Dialysis catheters 2.3%
Sickle-cell anemia tests 2.3%
How’s that for a “tax on the rich”? I sure am glad they covered pre-existing conditions for kids to make up for this stupidity…
Wait a minute… seriously? They forgot it? Well, surely there aren’t other taxes buried in there…
Wait a minute… there are? Well… I guess I’d oppose it, but apparently, people who oppose government healthcare are terrorists.

“Hours after President Barack Obama signed historic health care legislation, a potential problem emerged. Administration officials are now scrambling to fix a gap in highly touted benefits for children.”

“The president said the number one issue before us is jobs in 2010, and we couldn’t agree more, in fact the three top issues on our agenda are jobs, jobs and jobs”
The video below is under 2 minutes. Take the time and watch it. I can only assume by jobs the Democrats meant Health Care Reform. The two terms are apparently synonymous. I’m sure the focus will return to jobs after he is done with his “victory lap”, which is more likely to turn into an attempt to try and sell the already passed Health Care bill. It is a little sad that there is a need to convince the public how great the bill is after it is passed. There is a thought shared among the administration and Americans that support the bill that the public is misinformed about the bill. I have heard it over and over. Rest assured, those of us who are upset and that do not support the bill are not misinformed. I have no doubt that the Presidents 51st , or 52nd ”why we need to love this bill” speech in Iowa will do little to change the opposed minds. It will however regurgitate the same talking points Obama has been using for the past year to feed the lemmings that so faithfully , blindly follow every word he utters.
Here is another 2 minute video with Obama telling lying to us:
“The Public Will Have 5 Days To Look At Every Bill That Lands On My Desk”
Sure we will. Anything else you want us to drink up??? The sweet drink is so easy for some to swallow.

The Democrat-led House, in a move that was as shocking as discovering that the sun comes up in the morning, approved the unconstitutional, socialistic takeover of 1/6 of the United States economy. Apparently, they believed that the free market was too full of dumb people who had the audacity to believe their money should be controlled by them, and so they moved to address that issue with a rapidity that would make a snail’s head spin about 5 degrees to the left. I mean, it only took them 100 years to match the Soviet Union in health quality.
But the battle isn’t done, kids… there’s one more house of legislature to go through where the “supermajority” that evaporated in February, where those evil Republicans are likely to throw up annoying questions like “how in the hell are we going to pay for this?”, “where is this in the Constitution”, and “You Lie” – or this month’s equivalent, “Hell, no, you can’t.”
And after that… if it gets to Der Kommisar’s desk… there’s a court system full of attorneys ready to point out little things like “it’s not in the constitution”.

…but frankly, it’s just too much fun watching the hilarity in Washington right now.
Make no mistakes: this battle is not about health care, health insurance, or anything else related to your body’s well-being. This is a battle over government control, or as a liberal put it when he argued with me a few months ago, “how much freedom is too much freedom?”
See – to a conservative, freedom is the basis of our nation. It’s what our country was built on and why our forefathers, flawed human beings that they were, decided to give King Georgie Three the heave-ho. Yes, there are aspects of behavior that have good or bad social effects, some of which are so serious that they require imprisonment or death for committing them – usually because your free act has deliberately and maliciously taken away the freedom of others.
But to a liberal, freedom is an evil. It’s something that proceeds from the graces of the government and can – and occasionally, should be taken away at the whim of political winds (so long as those winds blow left). Over the past 2 years, I’ve asked liberals repeatedly: when it comes to paying for health care / GM / bailouts / etc. – whose money is it? Is it the government’s or is it mine? Consistently, they refuse to answer this basic question because, deep in their blackened little pea-pickin’ hearts, they know that they think that the money belongs to “everyone” (aka “the government”). That’s why they have no problem raising taxes on “the rich”… because, obviously, it’s not their money, is it? It’s OK to take away their money, so long as it’s for the “public good”.
If I used that logic to steal someone’s TV from their house, I’d be tossed in the pokey – and rightfully so.
Keep an eye out… keep active. This battle is not done. The minute the House passes Obamacare (and they will), it goes to the Senate, where the Democrats will hopefully learn the REAL meaning of “The Party of No” when we throw up every single last obstruction in their way, when we start up filibusters they can no longer break, and when even Moderate Senate Republicans work to make the lives of Senate Democrats utter hell.
And even if Obamacare survives this… even if they succeed in their latest goofs about “deeming the bill passed” and “hiding the bill”… and even if it gets signed by the capitulating, drunken, communist, spendaholic, job-destroying joke of a President… we’ll sue. The court system that liberals used for decades to reinterpret rights into existence (I’m still looking for “abortion” in the Constitution) will be used to throw up roadblocks…
The battle will continue. Our freedom is not for sale, even for the price of our “health”.
