Rush Limbaugh: The Court Rules of Individual Mandate … Obamacare is the Largest Tax Increase in the History of the World
Does any one honestly think that Obamacare would have passed as a tax increase? Obamacare was a stealth tax all along.
Wasn’t it Barack Obama who stated that he would not raise taxes on a family making over $250,000? Wasn’t it Barack Obama who said over and over and over again that the “individual mandate” of Obamacare was not a tax? However, if it walks like a tax and talks like a tax … it is a tax. Sadly today the US Supreme Court of the United States and mainly Chief Justice John Roberts called it a tax. That is the only reason why Obamacare passed Constitutionality.
Rush Limbaugh stated the following regarding Obama’s Barack Obama and the greatest tax increase ever perpetrated on the United States. We the American people have been deceived by Barack Obama in ways that no one could have conceived. Shame on Obama and Democrats for lying to teh American people. More so, shame on the SCOTUS and Justice John Roberts for bending over backwards to find a way to pass Obamacare. The end results, Obamacare is nothing more the the greatest tax increase in the history of the word.
RUSH: Hey, folks, have you seen the economic news today? Have you heard about the unemployment numbers today? (laughing) Gross domestic product, have you heard about any of that? Because I have it here, and it sucks. It’s a disaster. The economy of this country remains a disaster.
And we, the American people, have just been deceived in ways that nobody contemplated. And what we now have is the biggest tax increase in the history of the world. What we have been told by the chief justice of the Supreme Court and four liberals on the court: Obamacare is just a massive tax increase. That’s all it is. Obama lied to us about that. The Democrats lied. “It wasn’t a tax. There was no way it was a tax.”
The chief justice was hell-bent to find a way to make this law applicable, so he just decided, you know what, as a tax increase, it works, because there’s no limit on the federal government’s ability to tax. And it’s right there in the preamble of the Constitution, right there, Article 1, Section 8, the general welfare clause, it’s been established Congress can tax whatever, whoever, whenever, how much they want. Even when they don’t ask for it, the Supreme Court is gonna find a way to make what they want to do legal because John Roberts said it’s not our job here to forbid this. It’s not our job to protect people from outcomes. It’s not our job to determine whether it is right or wrong or any of that. We just get to look at it. We can’t forbid this. This is what the elected representatives of the people want. (more at Rush Limbaugh)
