Congratulations are due to Democrats and various big government liberals now that the Supreme Court has now given its approval to the most controversial parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
Of course, none of this would have been necessary if the Democrats had been honest enough to pay for affordable care with a tax plan instead of the silly mandate scheme we’re all going to be stuck with. It’s the equivalent of some city deciding to build a new baseball stadium and promising citizens it won’t be paid for out of tax dollars, only to require every citizen to buy a season ticket.
Now, since our elected leaders never worry about the consequences when power passes on to the other team, in a few years when the Republicans are in charge, I don’t want to hear any complaints if there’s an oil slump and they decide to prop up the petroleum industry by setting a 50-gallon per month minimum fuel purchase requirement, with just a tiny penalty/tax if you fail to meet it. Also, there will be the requirement for poor, young, inner-city men and women to buy contraceptives or pay a fine, which is totally not to be confused with a eugenics program. And then there’s the Homeland Security requirement for every American to buy an AR-15 and shoot at least 1000 rounds of ammo per year…
