Supreme Court Double Talk

Government Wins – Country Loses

We should have known. The long awaited Supreme Court came in today with a ruling, which in my opinion, is a bit on the contradictory side.

First of all, the so-called Affordable Health Care Act  is not constitutional as a mandate, which it is. Secondly, it is constitutional if it is a tax, which it is. Wow! It is two, two, two laws in one. Apparently the government can pick and choose its own definition, and win any case it wants by simply pretending.

The whole thing is double talk.  Apparently, the US Congress can pass laws that tax our pants off, but they cannot pass a law telling us what to buy. This still does not change the fact that we will be forced to buy the insurance whether the government calls it a tax or not.

So, want started out as a horse suddenly takes on a unicorn appearance. The law is all things to all people, constitutional or not.

The big lesson is to trust no branch of government.

They are all out to screw it up.
