91 Weeks Until Prez Election 2012 – Weds., March 2, 2011

The Individual Mandate and Obamacare

Consider the the widely unpopular individual mandate (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/individual-mandate-in-health-care-reform-law-still-widely-unpopular-poll-117146333.html) and whether it is considered a penalty or a tax.

DOJ has argued that it IS a TAX and therefore IS constitutional through the use of commerce clause.
However, it appears that the six judges that have weighed in on this as of March 1, 2011 (3 for and 3 against) that they ALL agree that the individual mandate is NOT a tax (http://www.redcounty.com/content/legal-fate-obamacare-may-boil-down-tax-issue), even the ones that sided favorably to uphold the individual mandate.
This may have a bearing if this challenge gets to the Supreme Court and the individual mandate could be struck down as unconstitutional and thereby since there is not serverability from this and the entire law, Obamacare will then be deemed nullified.

Why Wisconsin Matters
“I’m proud to be here with people who understand that it’s more than just sending an email to get you going,” Capuano ( Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) said, according to the Dorchester Reporter. “Every once and awhile you need to get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.”

Is this the centrist position we were hoping for?
Is it proper role for the federal government to meddle with States positions if they do not agree?
I thought it was the people of the State that made decisions for their own state

Finally , an opinion:
The left ideology is presently NOT the majority in our country as evidenced by the recent November 2010 midterm elections….
80% of us are to the “right of left”…
I recognize the source, but very good balanced referenced article with supporting links
Recognize that the mainstream media along with the unions are bought and paid for by this administration.  This will not change since their cover is now blown.
Let us hope that voters remember this and will again show their resolve in November 2012.
Stay engaged!
Keep the Faith!
