Why Democrats NEED Obamacare to be Overturned Completely: Mandate is constitutional as a TAX

As every­one con­tin­ues to won­der what is going on with the Oba­macare rul­ing it’s impor­tant to remem­ber how we got here:

When Oba­macare was first pro­posed the Democ­rats had a filibuster-​proof major­ity in the Sen­ate and an over­whelm­ing major­ity in the House.

Despite this to pass this bill the pres­i­dent had to pull teeth, and lit­er­ally give a whole state an exemp­tion from the bill in order to get it through the senate.

The Back­lash was so strong that it resulted in a Repub­li­can win­ning a Sen­ate Seat in Mass­a­chu­setts for the first time since 1972.

Once Scott Brown was elected as there was no chance of get­ting a bill through a con­fer­ence com­mit­tee so the exist­ing sen­ate bill was sent directly to the house for a vote.

Even with that over­whelm­ing major­ity the house barely passed the bill two months later with 34 democ­rats oppos­ing it.

The end result in 2010 was the Big Red Wave that resulted not only in Repub­li­can con­trol of the house (and six seats won in the sen­ate) but over 700+ GOP gains all over the country.

This is what Oba­macare has done to the demo­c­rat party.

I have no idea what is going to hap­pen later today, but if I’m the demo­c­rat party I hope and PRAY that this law goes away. If this law is upheld or if only the man­date is struck down and the rest of the law sur­vives then every Demo­c­rat sen­a­tor run­ning for elec­tion becomes the 60th vote that passed Oba­macare and it becomes an issue in every sin­gle com­pet­i­tive house race.

Let’s not for­get what Sen­a­tor Pat Toomey

Rep Allen West said at the Amer­i­cans for Pros­per­ity rally dur­ing the Supreme Court deliberations.

“I don’t think they have the courage to come out”

And let’s go one step fur­ther if Oba­macare is upheld and a Pres­i­dent Rom­ney gives the entire nation a waiver (which he has promised to do) then every sin­gle elec­tion from now on becomes a ref­er­en­dum on Oba­macare until it is replaced or repealed

This is what the future for every Demo­c­rat can­di­date for the house and sen­ate from now on if this law is upheld.

Good luck.

Update: Well at least one per­son doesn’t won­der:

What pos­si­ble dif­fer­ence could all this second-​guessing make? The court will rule what­ever the court rules, with­out regard for what a bunch of blog­gers say about it.

He also quotes Ace who said:

Dudes, the opin­ion was at the printer days ago. The con­fer­ence vote was like two months ago. The opin­ions were fin­ished, edited, and proofed like three weeks ago.

This rul­ing is like see­ing an explod­ing star in space, we become aware of it now, but the star actu­ally blew up cen­turies ago.

Update: Man­date is a tax and thus Con­sti­tu­tional OK Democ­rats you wanted this, you own it.

Update 2: Remind me again why we try to nom­i­nate con­ser­v­a­tive judges?

As everyone continues to wonder what is going on with the Obamacare ruling it’s important to remember how we got here:

When Obamacare was first proposed the Democrats had a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and an overwhelming majority in the House.

Despite this to pass this bill the president had to pull teeth, and literally give a whole state an exemption from the bill in order to get it through the senate.

The Backlash was so strong that it resulted in a Republican winning a Senate Seat in Massachusetts for the first time since 1972.

Once Scott Brown was elected as there was no chance of getting a bill through a conference committee so the existing senate bill was sent directly to the house for a vote.

Even with that overwhelming majority the house barely passed the bill two months later with 34 democrats opposing it.

The end result in 2010 was the Big Red Wave that resulted not only in Republican control of the house (and six seats won in the senate) but over 700+ GOP gains all over the country.

This is what Obamacare has done to the democrat party.

I have no idea what is going to happen later today, but if I’m the democrat party I hope and PRAY that this law goes away. If this law is upheld or if only the mandate is struck down and the rest of the law survives then every Democrat senator running for election becomes the 60th vote that passed Obamacare and it becomes an issue in every single competitive house race.

Let’s not forget what Senator Pat Toomey

Rep Allen West said at the Americans for Prosperity rally during the Supreme Court deliberations.

“I don’t think they have the courage to come out”

And let’s go one step further if Obamacare is upheld and a President Romney gives the entire nation a waiver (which he has promised to do) then every single election from now on becomes a referendum on Obamacare until it is replaced or repealed

This is what the future for every Democrat candidate for the house and senate from now on if this law is upheld.

Good luck.

Update: Well at least one person doesn’t wonder:

What possible difference could all this second-guessing make? The court will rule whatever the court rules, without regard for what a bunch of bloggers say about it.

He also quotes Ace who said:

Dudes, the opinion was at the printer days ago. The conference vote was like two months ago. The opinions were finished, edited, and proofed like three weeks ago.

This ruling is like seeing an exploding star in space, we become aware of it now, but the star actually blew up centuries ago.

Update: Mandate is a tax and thus Constitutional OK Democrats you wanted this, you own it.

Update 2: Remind me again why we try to nominate conservative judges?
