(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

ObamaKare: Shot Down Once Again


This time, by Florida northern district federal Judge Roger Vinson, who not only discarded a single aspect of the act (like the Virginia judge), but the entire law, from his bench in Pensacola, Florida on Monday. The 78-page ruling indicated that, in a nutshell, the federal government cannot compel you to purchase something that you do not wish to buy. And then penalize you should you not wish to have made said purchase.

Businesses were already discovering it would be cheaper to pay the fines than cover their employees under the onerous ObamaKare "plan."

That the act would be found unconstitutional is, at its base, not a shocking conclusion -- unless you are, of course, a non-Constitutionalist Leftist.

From Reuters:

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson ruled that the reform law's so-called individual mandate went too far in requiring that Americans start buying health insurance in 2014 or pay a penalty.

"Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire act must be declared void," he wrote, "This has been a difficult decision to reach and I am aware that it will have indeterminable implications."

Referring to a key provision in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Vinson sided with governors and attorneys general from 26 U.S. states, almost all of whom are Republicans, in declaring the Obama healthcare reform unconstitutional.

States involved in the lawsuit were Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Iowa, Ohio, Kansas, Maine, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Notably, you would not be shocked to discover that Fornicalia was not among those states disagreeing with the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act." A lie, if ever there was one.

As The Washington Times indicates, it is interesting to note that Judge Vinson wrote:
In ruling against President Obama‘s health care law, federal Judge Roger Vinson used Mr. Obama‘s own position from the 2008 campaign against him, arguing that there are other ways to tackle health care short of requiring every American to purchase insurance.

“I note that in 2008, then-Senator Obama supported a health care reform proposal that did not include an individual mandate because he was at that time strongly opposed to the idea, stating that ‘if a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house,’” Judge Vinson wrote in a footnote toward the end of the 78-page ruling Monday.

And so, on this revelation, did the stock market completely "tank" with the bad news? Uh, no. In fact, the Dow had the best January in 14 years.

This is, of course, going to SCOTUS, ladies and gentlemen. As well it should. "The entire act must be declared void." Quotes from the opinion.

Because the Leftists just don't "get it." They seem to envision they'll be "in power" forever.

Because, in another administration, if they win this case, the Logical Extension would also cover any and all subsequent Conservative administrations as well.

Government, bitterly and bottom line, should not have the power.

You and I both know this is true.

Can you imagine how happy the Air Force folks are that had to deal with her? Bet they are the happiest federal employees since Hilary left the White House.

Obama? Since I believe nothing he says, listening to him is torture. I'd rather be a cop dealing with piss bums.

Obama's voice is just a drone noise to me. A bothersome rear axle.
Anything he says or does will be automatically nullified when the place of his birth comes to surface.
Just a matter of time, so I just change channels and ignore him.
And wait.
He is just a flea crawling up an elephants rear leg with rape on it's mind.
