OBAMACARE’S PROGNOSIS WORSENS

In today’s American Spectator I discuss why Obamacare is likely to go the way of the McCain-Feingold “reform” law. A while back, I suggested in this space that Obamacare might go the way of McCain Feingold. That campaign finance “reform” law was not, you will recall, killed by a single lawsuit or act of Congress. [...]

THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF HOBBY LOBBY

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the increasingly hysterical claims made by our progressive friends about the consequences of a Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby. The Supreme Court is expected to hand down its ruling in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby on June 26, and the closer we get to that date the [...]

SCOTUS, HOBBY LOBBY & MEDIA MALPRACTICE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the lies that the “news” media have been telling the public about the Supreme Court’s decision to hear two challenges to Obamacare’s contraception manddate: Those Americans still naïve enough to rely on establishment news outlets for information … are being told that Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius and Conestoga Wood [...]

WHY THE SUPREMES AGREED TO HEAR THE HHS MANDATE CASES

In Monday’s American Spectator, I suggested that the Supreme Court would probably agree to hear one or more of the challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate: [Tuesday] the justices will confer about Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius, Conestoga Wood v. Sebelius and Autocam v. Sebelius, all of which challenge the constitutionality of Obamacare’s contraception mandate … It [...]

VIDEO: JUST ANOTHER BROKEN PROMISE

On the 28th of June, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare’s mandate/penalty because it is a TAX. This video captures the significance of that ruling as it relates to the President’s veracity:

ROMNEY ON OBAMATAX: SUPREME COURT SAID OBAMA BROKE HIS TAX PROMISE

This is the silver lining for the dark cloud perpetrated by the Supreme Court on June 28. During the 2008 presidntial campaign, Obama said he wouln’t raise taxes on the middle class. But the Court says the mandate is constitutional only because it’s a tax. Romney correctly points out that this means Obama raised taxes [...]

VIDEO: SCOTUS MAKES A LIAR OF OBAMA

One point that has been missed by our friends on the left, as they celebrate the SCOTUS travesty, is that yesterday’s ruling confirmed Obama as a liar on the true nature of the mandate. The Roberts decision said the mandate was a tax, and therefore constitutional. Well, then, what does that make the President? Watch [...]

THE SUPREME COURT WILL RULE ON FOUR OBAMACARE QUESTIONS TODAY

By lunchtime, the Supreme Court will have ruled on four seperate issues relating to ObamaCare: (1) Anti-Injunction Act (AIA): The AIA forbids legal challenges to taxes before they go into effect. Thus, for AIA to apply, the mandate has to qualify as a tax. When the first challenges to PPACA were litigated, the government tried [...]

THE PRESSURE ON ROBERTS INCREASES

Chief Justice John Roberts has been receiving a lot of pressure from the Democrats and their media lickspittles about how he should conduct himself in the ObamaCare case. Last month, Democrat Senator Partick Leahy offered this diatribe from the floor of the Senate: And, during the past couple of weeks, Politico has issued thinly-veiled threats [...]

WILL ROBERTS AUTHOR THE SUPREME COURT’S MAJORITY OPINION ON OBAMACARE?

According to veteran Court watchers, it’s virtually certain that Chief Justice John Roberts will write the majority opinion. That’s probably good news for those of us who want the mandate to do down. Avik Roy explains: Roberts was skeptical [during oral arguments] of the mandate’s constitutionality, and understood that the mandate is really about cross-subsidization, [...]
