The Broccoli Tax

The power to tax was previously to tax something.  Justice Roberts has now ok’d the taxing of inactivity.  This is the first time that it has ever meant this.  This means that the Congress can now define all of the behavior that it desires and tax non-adherance, not just for the 17 enumerated powers limited to it in the Constitution, but virtually ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.

A tax for not buying a government-owned car company car.  For not buying a solar panel.  For not buying a union-picked broccoli serving for every family member.  For not buying a house with a mortgage.  Have to help out the struggling housing/construction/realty market. 

All under the auspices of the “shared responsibility” tax on whatever activity the Congress now decides that Americans have to do in order to not be financially penalized.

    Agreed. That’s just what Roberts did for us and unconstitutional at that. He must have lied his way big time for Bush to appoint him. Another commie hiding his leanings and gaining access to the SCOTUS. Now we have Roberts, the traitor and liar, Kagan, a card carrying Communist and Sotomayer, a card carrying member of LaRaza. Now is that not grand?
