You know, folks, it’s no small matter when 26 of the 50 states join together to oppose a law imposed upon them by the federal government. It’s also no small matter when those states are joined by the National Federation of Independent Business, America’s most influential lobby for small businesses, to oppose the federal government imposing a law that harms their sector.
The law, of course, is Obamacare, andUS District Judge Roger Vinson ruled that it is unconstitutionalto force Americans to purchase health insurance or face punishment. Bottom line is,the court agreed with outraged citizens from every state who understand that Barack Obama, Dingy Harry, Nancy Pelosi, and the Democrat Party do not have the authorityor the power to force their will on us– as if we are helpless subjects, and they are third world dictators.
Now, in a delicious bit of irony, the judge used Obama’s own words against him. In a footnote at the end of his ruling, Judge Vinson wrote: “In 2008, then-Senator Obama supported a health care reform proposal that did not include an individual mandate because he was at that time strongly opposed to the idea, stating that ‘if a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house.'”
The battle won’t be over until the question of the constitutionally of Obamacare is eventually decided by the Supreme Court. But at least on one day in America,freedom rangloud and clear.
