Unbelievable, but it looks as though the tax subsidies will stand for those states that did not set up socialist health care state exchanges. All Americans are now constitutionally “entitled.”
What has been ruled constitutional is that FREE options will compete with PAID options on a state insurance exchange. Good luck to the PAID options. And good luck to the taxpayers that will continue to experience spikes in their taxes and “double taxation,” if they wish to hang on to their private option.
Kudos to Scalia who barbecued Roberts’ outrageous decision and called it what it is in his strong dissent: SCOTUSCare. To echo his sentiments, Chief Justice Roberts’ legacy is indeed hurting the Court – and Roberts’ reputation – long-term. But I will add, it especially is hurting our young people who will bear the burden of the elderly subsidies that far outweigh their capacity to do so by sheer numbers.
Napolitano described it as a “weird” ruling declaring that Roberts has pulled his logic out of thin air and that he cannot read plain English.
I’m equally dismayed at the silence from the private options enterprises for not protesting this ruling. But then, why would they? They believe the mandate will bring them profits, in spite of what will eventually be the inevitable: their own demise and hostile government take-over.
I urge you to connect with two groups of doctors that are speaking out: The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons has been actively engaged in the legal fight. Here is an excellent and brief rundown on the Court’s ruling. AAPS sends out alerts regularly. Read what AAPS is saying about the damage the ACA is doing and the response to the ruling, forthcoming.
Also, pay attention to what the Surgery Center of Oklahoma is doing, whose doctors are affiliated with AAPS. If you want the truth in simple terms, to learn how ObamaCare is harming you, and to find out what the options and solutions are, read Dr. Smith’s blog.
This socialist decision is sure to follow the course of social security and Medicare – and education. It will suck the majority of Americans into the system and the system will become mediocre, harming untold numbers of patients that will need the care but will not get it in a timely fashion, if at all.
The history is clear: The public subsidies of social security and Medicare were originally limited to a small percent of the population, but eventually Americans behaved as children, “If little Joey gets the candy for free, I get it too!!!” and “I’m paying taxes, so I should get this government subsidy too,” even though they don’t need it. Everyone is entitled in a socialist society.
If insurance companies were honest and principled, they would speak up. They would call this an unfair trade practice.
Is there a political party that believes in free enterprise any more? Have the two major parties become Socialist and Socialist Lite? How will Congress respond? When will Congress apply a checks and balance to the Supreme Court that is given it in Article III of the U.S. Constitution?
A legislative response is overdue. If Congress doesn’t respond, we are indeed headed for what my doctor father said on July 31, 1965 when Medicare first passed: “This is the first day of the end of quality delivery of medicine in America.” For those who were not living in 1965, you most likely don’t miss the liberty you have never known.
Let’s hope Americans will take up the challenge to unseat every Senator that confirmed these judges. Utah’s Orrin Hatch is among them. 2016 must be a turn around. Our future depends on it. Drill deeply in your analysis, because most Republicans run as conservatives, but they are far from it.

If you would like to OPT OUT of ObamaCare, now would be a good time to do it, and there is a way. It’c called Medical Cost Share. Get more information here. If enough Americans do this, it would bankrupt socialized medicine. This is better than insurance, and typically costs less. And you will be supporting this cause with a win-win… Check it out!
