The authority for the funding of Obama Care belongs to the House of Representatives not the US Senate, so what I am asking is why was this not the argument presented to the Supreme Court. These lawyers who presented the case are suppose to be top notch lawyers, why was this missed? Funding is the main responsibility of the House of Representatives. I could never understand, and I still don’t understand how the Senate funded or allowed to fund this law if they do not control the purse strings.
As much as I was and still am angry at Chief Justice Roberts for going out of his way to call Obama Care a tax which I felt he could have voted against Obama Care becoming a law right there, one good thing came out of his ruling. “Chief Justice John Roberts actually ruled the mandate, relative to the commerce clause, was unconstitutional. That is how the Democrats got Obama-care going in the first place. This is critical. His ruling means Congress can’t compel American citizens to purchase anything, ever. The notion is now officially and forever, unconstitutional. As it should be.” This is why I felt Obama Care was never going to pass the Supreme Court in the first place because they were going to use the commerce clause to get it passed and I was very sure that was not going to be the case.
Another thing came out of Judge Robert’s ruling that a lot of people forget. If you remember Obama and his cult wanted to bully the states to comply. He struck down as unconstitutional, the Obama-care idea that the federal government can bully states into complying by yanking their existing Medicaid funding. Liberals, through Obama-care, basically said to the states — “comply with Obama-care or we will stop existing funding.” Roberts ruled that is a no-no.”
The following was posted by Carrie Welboro” titled The House Always Held The Purse Strings.”When the House attached Obama care to the legislation in funding the government, it made a mistake in doing so and the funding of Obama care should have been separate, thereby giving the Senate no power in denying the Houses’ request to defund Obama care.
“Still, the intent of the Founding Fathers was to give the people, through their House of Representatives, the power collectively to say no to any proposed federal tax. ”If Obama care is removed from the government budget, presented, and voted on as a separate bill, Obama care can be defunded by the House and the Senate and the President has no constitutional authority to override the House decision.”
I feel with the knowledge gathered above that if Obama Care is taken back to the Supreme Court with the argument used above it can be struck down. Like Yogi Berra, once famous catcher for the New York Yankees said in the past, “its not over till its over.” Obama Care is a hardship on the American people. The socialists in power ruined a health care system where 85% of the American people had insurance coverage for the 15% who did not. This should have been unconstitutional in itself.
