With all the upheaval taking place in Egypt, and President Obama and foreign-policy expert/VP Joe Biden missing in action, perhaps the White House is more focused on the strong possibility that Obamacare could end up where it should - in the scrap heap of bad liberal entitlement ideas. It is clear that while the events in Egypt expose Obama as simply channeling his inner-Jimmy Carter in not having a clue what to do diplomatically or whom to support, he may be preoccupied. After all, looks like his "crowning achievement" - Obamacare - may be D.O.A.
Across the country, judges are striking down parts of Obamacare as "unconstitutional." But the biggest blow yet just happened. On January 31st, in the northern district of Florida in the United States District Court, Judge Roger Vinson struck down ALL of Obamacare as "unconstitutional." His ruling was very specific and cited many explanations of why he ruled in favor of those who oppose this government power-grab. Read the entire 78 page ruling and explanation at: State of Florida vs. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is very interesting and makes excellent points as to WHY Obamacare IS unconstitutional.
A few excerpts from Judge Roger Vinson's ruling:
""It is difficult to imagine that a nation which began, at least in part, as the result of opposition to a British mandate giving the East India Company a monopoly and imposing a nominal tax on all tea sold in America would have set out to create a government with the power to force people to buy tea in the first place. If Congress can penalize a passive individual for failing to engage in commerce, the enumeration of powers in the Constitution would have been in vain for it would be ‘difficult to perceive any limitation on federal power’ and we would have a Constitution in name only."
and the following:
"...the individual mandate and the remaining provisions are all inextricably bound together in purpose and must stand or fall as a single unit. Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void."
As of right now, 26 states have filed suit against Obamacare - Wisconsin proudly among them! The United States House of Representatives recently voted to repeal Obamacare, and 47 Republican Senators have signed on to vote in favor of repealing this bloated entitlement program when it comes to the U.S. Senate.
With Vinson's ruling, the repeal of Obamacare may eventually end up in the hands of the United States Supreme Court. At which time our country would be at a true crossroads - do we continue on the path to becoming a nanny state - with the entitlement mentality supported by the government OR do we go back to the ideals and principals that our country was founded upon? The nine justices on the United States Supreme Court could be about to hear one of the most important cases ever presented to them - if not the most important! The future of the United States of America could depend upon their decision.
Let's continue to support our elected leaders who want to repeal this Obamination - and those judges who agree. The majority of the states in our nation want Obamacare repealed. The majority of people in the United States want Obamacare repealed.
Obamacare IS unconstitutional. It IS another entitlement program that we - as Americans - can neither support nor afford. It is unsustainable, as with most entitlement programs. And if Obamacare is indeed allowed to become a reality, we will turn into another Europe. The greatness of America and all it stands for will be lost.
And perhaps if Obamacare were to go down in flames - the sooner the better - the President could turn his attention to Egypt? One suggestion - Obama should avoid taking any calls from Jimmy Carter if he wishes to offer words of advice!
