Initial thoughts on SCOTUS ruling on Obamacare

The Supreme Court has ruled 5-4 that the individual mandate in Obamacare is constitutional. This largely leaves the law intact.

According to the Majority Opinion, it is constitutional on a bit of a technicality. (as a tax, and not as part of the Commerce Clause as the Administration had argued).

The surprise here was that Anthony Kennedy was not the swing vote. He actually voted to strike down the mandate. Instead, Chief Justice John Roberts voted with the majority and was able to frame the argument.

Quick Thoughts:
1) Don’t be hatin’ on Roberts. I’ve got a feeling that a lot of conservatives feel betrayed by him. Some might even resort to petty emotional outbursts. I would urge my fellow conservatives to grow up and calm the heck down. Roberts is one of the brightest guys to ever serve on the Supreme Court. Though I disagree with him on this decision, it was his to make. Let’s not turn into a bunch of liberal animals and start calling him names.

2) No worries. Obamacare will be repealed starting in January of 2013 (when Romney takes office as President).

Love God and Love People. That’s all we need to focus on. Don’t lose any sleep over this SCOTUS decision. Obamacare is still a Dead Law Walking.
