Reagan-Appointed Judge Saves America from Health Care Disaster
A federal judge has just ruled all of Obamacare void, unconstitutional. He has not said it may continue to be implemented under appeal. This ruling, ladies and gentlemen, demonstrates that we cannot tweak Obamacare. We can’t throw out the parts we don’t like but keep some things we do like and then build on that. Even a federal judge — a Reagan appointee, by the way, about which I’m gonna have more to say in mere moments. But this regime all of a sudden the last couple weeks loves Reagan, right? Obama’s out there as Reagan. He wanted to be Reaganesque at the State of the Union. The Drive-Bys are singing the praise of Ronald Reagan.
We need to remind everybody, this is a Reagan-appointed federal judge and that we are living not under a Reagan economy but Obama economy. Hooverville. Obamaville. So where are we? A federal judge has realized you cannot work this health care law without this mandate tax. He has seen it. There’s some brilliant, brilliant writing from this judge. Let me give you an example: “It is difficult to imagine that a nation which began, at least in part, as the result of opposition to a British mandate giving the East India Company a monopoly and imposing a nominal tax on all tea sold in America would have set out to create a government with the power to force people to buy tea in the first place.”
This is brilliant. It is commonsense simplicity equaling brilliance. “It’s difficult to imagine a nation which began, at least in part, as the result of opposition to a British mandate giving the East India Tea Company a monopoly in the colonies and then imposing a nominal tax on all tea sold,” leading to the Boston Tea Party. “It is difficult to imagine that [the Founders] would have set out to create a government with the power to force people to buy tea in the first place.”
