While there is still much to be decided in the convoluted mess that is Obamacare, the Supreme Court has ruled the Individual Mandate constitutional. In a surprising move, it wasn’t Justice Kennedy that ended up as the deciding factor, but rather what many considered a reliable conservative, Chief Justice John Roberts, that tipped the scales in favor of the liberal bloc.
There will be much more to come, but the biggest takeaway from today’s ruling is simple: we need to elect Mitt Romney and a GOP House and Senate. The Court’s opinion today has basically allowed government to rule every aspect of American life, and we absolutely cannot survive as a free nation without electing officials who believe in limited government.
I’m sending my check to Romney and Mandel today and will be volunteering on both campaigns with every free moment I have from here until Election Day.
If you, like the 67% of Ohioans who voted against Obamacare in 2011, believe that the federal government has gone too far, join the movement and let’s get America back on the right path.
