Day577 Wednesday 03/28/12

ran 5.0 miles
Today ends the third and final day of lambasting and ridiculing ObamaCare within the walls of our Supreme Court.  After what we have heard over the last three days, if ObamaCare is ruled constitutional in June then our justices will have put on an Oscar-winning performance as we look back to these past three days.

JUSTICE SCALIA:  Mr. Kneedler, what happened to the Eighth Amendment (cruel and unusual punishment)? You really want us to go through these 2,700 pages? 


JUSTICE SCALIA:  And do you really expect the Court to do that? Or do you expect us to — to give this function to our law clerks?  Is this not totally unrealistic? That we are going to go through this enormous bill item by item and decide each one?


Four of the five conservative justices have expressed little more than complete disapproval of Barack Obama’s sweeping health care legislation.  The only reason all five have not expressed these same sentiments is because Clarence Thomas has not spoken a single word during a Supreme Court hearing in six years.  But it is safe to say he feels the same as the others.  Even liberal justice Sotomayor was skeptical in her statements and line of questioning.

This individual mandate, which the Obama administration is all of a sudden referring to as the “personal responsibility clause”, has to be struck down if our Constitution has anything to do with it.  Should it be upheld the federal government would possess the precedent to ultimately force Americans to purchase or do whatever they desire in the future.  It is government at its largest and most threatening and American people at their least free and prosperous.

302.4 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day212.
