Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court, which effectively states that the mandate as a tax, is constitutional points right back to Barack Obama. This is nothing less than a massive deception by Mr. Obama. He has stated publicly, many times, that his bill/law was not funded by taxes and was never intended to be a tax. Yet, when using that argument in front of the Supreme Court and facing certain defeat with the mandate, they changed their tune and started calling it a tax.
Of all the lies put forward by Mr. Obama, this particular desire of his to deceive the American people on such a massive scale is the greatest lie of them all. Had the American people been told the truth from the beginning, Mr. Obama knows he would never have been able to get the bill passed in Congress. Rather, we now know this to be an incredibly massive tax increase to the American people. Mr. Obama’s strategic deception was in fact successful.
Since the Supreme Court leaves the law in place, effectively we are left with no less than 21 new taxes. In fact, Rush Limbaugh is characterizing this as the largest tax increase in world history. I still need time to study it all, but I believe he is correct.
Most important to me is the fact that the current President of the United States is always so willing to deceive me and my fellow Americans, if doing so will move forward his agenda. His arrogance knows no bounds and he must be stopped from lying any more. The only way that can happen is to vote him out.
