The anti-Anti Injunction Act

 
The Anti-Injuction Act says that any legislation that IS a tax cannot be litigated until AFTER the tax has been collected. So the Supremes litigating it to make Obamacare a tax now should also mean that it cannot be litigated now. The only way for their determination to be consistent would be for them to declare that it IS a tax and then refuse to hear it until AFTER it had been executed.
 
They have violated their oath and rewritten the legislation to make it something it is not, and then been inconsistent in their judicial determination of it.
 
Quid pro quo since the Congress had also written legislation which they have no constitutional authority to do.
 
Now to cap it, all we would need would be a president who would decide to apply the legislation as his whim decreed rather than as it was written.
 
Now where will we find one of those?
 
Going to continue to do my coal-canary bit and chirp that it is moot since we cannot and will not be able to afford (aka fund) this anyway and it will just accelerate the process where the economy collapses.  And on the way, we go from the best health care in the world to having those that are still paying, paying exorbitant prices for marginal care, the same care that the people that are NOT paying will be getting.  Except for the politicians.

    Some time ago I had made a difficult decision … when our premiums go up (and they will, soon and substantially) I will be talking with my Doctor about seeing him every 6 months for my blood test for my med (thyroid issue) and that is it. No other services. This decision pre-dated the Supreme Court decision when they started computerizing all my records. I objected and Doc told me they had no choice. The implementation of my decision was on hold given the case before the Supreme Court. To some it may seem I am cutting off my nose to spite my face. So far this is still the United States (prefer the united STATES), and we all have our opinion.

    Obamacare has minimum requirements that the docs have to do to get paid. If you want treatment that is less frequent than those minimums, you will have to pay out of pocket or get dropped. For example, if you refuse to get weighed, they may ask for cash or drop you.

    They also may refuse refills if you are not meeting a level of followup that they are comfortable with.

    drrik, yeah, the pols have themselves covered quite well which the tax payer pays for. How lucky for them as the rest of us go without or can’t get care. I am on meds for 2 life threatening illnesses so if I cannot get my meds, it’s good bye for me. Don’t have enough money to buy out of pocket. Wish I did, but we already got wiped out over two catastrophic illnesses in the last 5 years. All of our savings are gone now. I’m not sure one can save enough money to keep up with the medical and drug costs. At least we were knocked down and we’re under Medicare since we are retirees. Both of us have illnesses which make it impossible for either of us to work outside the house. So we’re up a creek with no paddle left. And with the new Medicare premium to go up to $250 in 2014 we will have to drop our medicare. We simply cannot afford that kind of premium.
    I suppose the Hawk and I will use the ER as our doctor like the Mexicans do. We would have no other means of getting any care whatsoever.
