So Sayeth Justice Antonin Scalia, joined by Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito.
And they are correct. Justice Roberts and the presumed swing vote Justice Kennedy are completely happy supporting their leftist counterparts in rewriting the law and acting in a defacto legislative manner. In the meantime our cowardly Republican congress plans its next budget including the money used to screw over the population in a direct violation to the constitution.
The biggest cowards of course being our own Tim Walberg, Dan Benishek, Candace Miller, Bill Huizinga, David Trott, Mike Bishop, John Moolenaar, and perpetual sandbagging liberal Fred Upton. Without their support for continuing funding of the Obama plans, all of this would be moot. Without their capitulation to the sell out speaker of the house Obamacare would have been repealed by the purse. Without their complete and total disrespect for the Constitution of the United States, Obama and the complete and total change of our Republic under his guidance would be but a memory.
As for the ‘Democrats?’ We have know for quite some time that the Marxist infiltration of THAT party is complete.
In the meantime, the Supreme Court has shown itself to be the supreme joke, insofar as upholding the constitution. Folks may not understand how terribly bad this ruling is until other legislative forays become broadly interpreted depending on whatever the whim of the day might be. Rule of LAW is no more. Scalia’s dissent starts with this:
“The Court holds that when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act says “Exchange established by the State” it means “Exchange established by the State or the Federal Government.” That is of course quite absurd, and the Court’s 21 pages of explanation make it no less so”
This case requires us to decide whether someone who buys insurance on an Exchange established by the Secretary gets tax credits. You would think the answer would be obvious—so obvious there would hardly be a need for the Supreme Court to hear a case about it. In order to receive any money under §36B, an individual must enroll in an insurance plan through an “Exchange established by the State.” The Secretary of Health and Human Services is not a State. So an Exchange established by the Secretary is not an Exchange established by the State—which means people who buy health insurance through such an Exchange get no money under §36B.
But ultimately, the operationally unconstitutional court is only providing cover for the malfeasance of the legislative process. Though the original passers of the ACA have by and large been replaced, the bill somehow still stands as strongly as the day it was passed. That can only happen as the result of the broken promises made by those who replaced them.
The overpaid government sponges below need respond immediately or go. Every single one of them. Call their offices (Be nice to the staffers, they are not paid enough to take the abuse the congressmen deserve) And DEMAND that not one more dollar funds Obama’s government until this socialist atrocity is removed from our nation.

From The Hill:
SCOTUScare Act Introduced
A House Republican on Thursday proposed forcing the Supreme Court justices and their staff to enroll in ObamaCare.
Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) said that his SCOTUScare Act would make all nine justices and their employees join the national healthcare law’s exchanges.
“As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people,” he said.
“That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for ObamaCare,” Babin said.
Babin’s potential legislation would only let the federal government provide healthcare to the Supreme Court and its staff via ObamaCare exchanges.
“By eliminating their exemption from ObamaCare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with,” he added.
