(Washington Post) Today, in a stunning 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled on the constitutionality of Obamacare. This will now go down in my memory as was one of the saddest days for our country, for our individual liberty, our freedoms, and our way of life in America.
I am a small business owner, and I still believe, as do the dissenting judges, that this ruling gives the federal government far too much power. It strips the American people of their liberty and individual freedom. As some commentators argued before the ruling, “If they can do this, they can do anything to the American people.”
The brakes are off, and I fear the Obama administration will put the pedal to the metal and push through even more distasteful mandates – sorry, “taxes” – to force us to follow the route toward Europe’s economic crisis.
