A Quirk – Unintended Consequences? No It’s the Obama Agenda: Impeach John Roberts

The AP calls it an ObamaCare “quirk…unintended consequences.” I call it the Obama agenda of grinding down America. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer recently made news when she opted-in for a greatly expanded Medicaid under ObamaCare (which will eventually bankrupt the state – my words, not hers).

“If Arizona does not expand, for poor Arizonans below (the federal poverty line), only legal immigrants, but not citizens, would be eligible for subsidies,” the documents said.

Now here is something else we can lay squarely on the shoulders of Supreme Court Justice John Roberts:

Starting Jan. 1, 2014, the health care law will offer health insurance to millions of people now uninsured. Middle-class uninsured people will be able to get taxpayer-subsidized private policies through new markets called exchanges. Low-income uninsured people will be steered to Medicaid, a government program jointly funded by Washington and the states.

Under previous laws, legal immigrants have to wait five years to qualify for Medicaid. Ng’andu said Hispanic advocacy groups wanted to lift that restriction during the 2009 congressional health care debate, but couldn’t get political support. The Medicaid waiting period remained in place, but a compromise was reached that would allow low-income legal immigrants to get subsidized private coverage in the new health insurance exchanges.

    Why do Republicans aways end up with at least one John Roberts type on the Supreme Court. Liberals rarely have that problem.

    “Impeach John Roberts”

    Brilliant, as bad as he is, I can’t wait to see what they replace him with. If he leave the bench during this administration you might as well turn your guns in now. They’ll heat up the barrels over bonfires of copies of the constitution and bend them so they can never be used again.

    Now we know why President Hussein Obama’s people have been running ads in Mexico about health benefits in the States.

    It is not a piece of paper which protects the American people from tyranny – it is the Will of the American People.

    And so far, it looks like the Will left town …

    John Roberts did the best thing by agreeing that Obamacare was legal because, as was argued by the administration’s team, it was a tax…

    Therefore it can be repealed or whatever magic voodoo that lawyers and politicians do.(for THEM and THEIRS first of course.)
