Disappointing. Utterly disappointing. There is no other way to describe today's decision handed down by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). For whatever twisted reasoning, none less than the Chief Justice ignored the obvious and allowed this nation to take one giant step towards existence as a socialist republic. We look and sound a lot like the failing European nations who took these steps several years ago.
Do you realize that this ruling is based on a lie? Our own president said this bill is not a tax. And when they argued before the Supreme Court, what did they tell them? This is a tax! Had SCOTUS permitted cross-examination and called POTUS to the stand, he would have had to refute the arguments of his Solicitor General, or lie in the process.
It is not the first ruling based on a lie. Roe V Wade is another based on lies by the lawyers arguing for the right to privacy. Our great nation, the one founded on truth, now stands on the crumbling foundation of lies, ruled by liars, and systematically recreated for liars. Truth has been discarded as a useless, dirty, old shirt.
God have mercy.
