“The logic in the majority opinion (by the Supreme Court) is the jurisprudential equivalent of passing a camel through the eye of a needle. The logic is so tortured, unexpected and unprecedented that even the law's most fervent supporters did not make or anticipate the court's argument in its support. Under the Constitution, a tax must originate in the House (which this law did not), and it must be applied for doing something (like earning income or purchasing tobacco or fuel), not for doing nothing. In all the history of the court, it never has held that a penalty imposed for violating a federal law was really a tax. And it never has converted linguistically the congressional finding of penalty into the judicial declaration of tax, absent finding subterfuge on the part of congressional draftsmanship.”
My take: Have any of you ever actually tried to shove a camel through the eye of a needle? Maybe it’s not all that hard! And, oh yes, all that gobbledygook about where a tax must first originate. I’m here to inform you (less than intelligent readers) that the tax laws come directly from Obama’s stash – exactly where all that 'free' money is coming from. So, get over it, let’s all move FORWARD and once He is re-elected, His Final Plan will become apparent to all!
