Supreme Court "Upholds" Unconstitutional Health Care Law
By: David Deschesne
Fort Fairfield Journal, July 11, 2012
The U.S. Supreme Court doesn’t always get it right. In 1857 they ruled in Dred Scott v. Sanford (60 U.S. 393) that black men were slaves. In 1893 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Nix v. Hedden (149 U.S. 305) that tomatoes were vegetables, not fruit, in order to allow them to be taxed (tomatoes really are fruit because they grow above ground while vegetables grow underground). In both cases, the Supreme Court bent logic and ruled under political expediency to financially benefit the government either indirectly through corporate donations or directly through the taxation power.
With the recent flawed ruling on the Marxist national health care mandate, the Supreme Court once again ruled that slavery is legal and that the slave citizens can be bossed around by their government and forced to buy a product or service they either don’t want or can’t afford, under the guise of a “tax.”. This time around it is not just black people, but everyone who is a slave; not to plantation owners, but to large, multi-national health insurance providers that the U.S. government now coercively collects money for.
The national health care law, or “ObamaCare” as it has been nicknamed has been misconstrued by many to be a single-payer, national health care system similar to Canada’s, where everyone gets free health care paid for by the government. That is not entirely correct. What ObamaCare does is “guarantees” health care by making the purchasing of health insurance by citizens directly, or their employers, mandatory similar to the mandatory automobile insurance laws in most states.
While ObamaCare claims to require all medium to large employers to purchase health insurance for their employees, presidential impersonator, Barack Hussein-Obama has already issued over 1,200 waivers to large corporations such as Wal-Mart and McDonalds, as well as large unions, like the United Federation of Teachers, exempting them from having to purchase the health insurance for their employees as mandated to others.
Since smaller companies are not as wealthy or politically connected as the large multi-nationals, they will soon be unable to compete with skyrocketing costs of doing business thereby causing businesses to consolidate into the hands of the few.
While many Republicans are looking to Mitt Romney as their savior from ObamaCare, most of them are not aware that the health insurance companies wrote the draft legislation and beta-tested it in Massachusetts where it was wholeheartedly supported by Romney when he was governor there.
Hedging their bets by utilizing the bought and paid for mainstream television media, the Marxists in government and the health insurance industry have positioned a friendly face—Romney—as the “leader” of the Republican party so in November, whether Obama gets reelected, or Romney takes over, the national health care law will be guaranteed to remain in effect. The Republican party nationwide has been very consistent in allowing itself to be duped over and over again by supporting the mainstream media’s Republican pick, which has always been a Socialist/Communist who has moved into the Republican party by stealth.
The Supreme Court decided in favor of ObamaCare based upon the taxation power of Congress, rather than the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
While Congress does have the power to tax, the Constitution stipulates that such taxation must be apportioned (divided evenly) among the states. That is, all people being taxed must pay the same amount of tax. Since the tax will be applied as a “fine” against those who have either chosen not to purchase, or are financially unable to purchase, health insurance, the taxed amount will not be apportioned evenly and is thus unconstitutional.
Even with the Constitutional power to tax, Congress only has jurisdiction to enforce taxes, or their health care mandate, within the District of Columbia, military bases and posts, navy dockyards and on lands sold or ceded to the U.S. government. They do not have the jurisdiction to impose their mandates within the boundaries of any of the fifty sovereign states in the Union.
The health care law was highly politicized by women’s groups by stating it would somehow protect women’s health—when in reality it does no such thing.
“As with the contraception mandate, the politicization of so-called women issues leaves the majority of women vulnerable to exploitation by radical groups that exert much political influence in Congress and the White House,” said Penny Morrell, from Concerned Women for America of Maine. “It is preposterous to suggest the government would do a better job of deciding what is best for us and our loved ones regarding healthcare.”
