If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
The biggest fustercluck to come down the pike in quite awhile.The big O's promise not to raise taxes on the middle class could come around to biting him in the ass --his very own "read my lips" moment.We can hope.
I AM hoping on that count, Moogie.
I'm about as scared as I have ever beenEven the clowns who passed this thing didn't know what was in itWhat I wanna know is who ...or, really, how this mandate's gonna be enforced (I sure hope a TSA type agency isn't set up)
I think I remember reading something about the IRS being the enforcement mechanism. Oh, Goodie.
Erick Erickson at Red State has an interesting take on Justice Roberts' decision.Forcing it to be a political issue about taxes in a presidential election cycle. He takes the commerce clause and puts in the closet and forces Dems to defend ... a new tax.If the analysis is true, it's pretty fucking brilliant.
That was a good post by Erickson, but as I said at your place: the GOP congress has to act and I'm not sure they have the political will to do so.
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
