SCOTUS on Obamacare

Supreme-CourtI didn’t post anything concerning the SCOTUS decision on Obamacare the day that it happened because I was a little too busy to blog. However, I did post something on my Facebook account and I thought I would copy it over to the blog, just to make sure I have a copy of it:

“…Members of this [Supreme] Court are vested with the authority to interpret the law; we possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation’s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them. It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”

I do believe Justice Roberts was telling us something.

I don’t think the conservative pundits have this one correct. Roberts didn’t side with the liberals, I, and a couple of my close friends, believe he is actually surreptitiously working around the issue.

Now, to further elaborate on my thoughts concerning the SCOTUS decision…. was it a real decision? Technically, it was, to the point that they decided they have no business making a decision. The decision lies with the American voter and Congress. The last sentence in that paragraph, in my opinion, is extremely important now, and will of course be of the utmost importance in the future: “…It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.” From the highest offices in the nation (Judicial Branch) comes a slap in the face that America needs. Hold your politicians accountable for what you like and don’t like about America.
