Conservatives should begin by praising Chief Justice John Roberts.
In as deft a decision as has been written in the last 20 years, he accomplished three major things.
The Supreme Court’s healthcare decision limits the promotion of federal power and future Democratic Congresses in two ways, while also setting up an important national debate on tax policy.
It is now clear the Obama administration and the Pelosi Congress passed the largest, and one of the most regressive, taxes in recent times.
The “Democratic Mandate Tax” is aimed at, and will dramatically impact, small businesses and middle-income Americans.
The veil has been pulled back, revealing one of the primary intentions of ObamaCare.
It seeks to massively expand the size of the federal government in the name of better healthcare. It also requires the expansion to be paid for by middle-income Americans and those who are brazen enough to try and make money running small businesses.
The dislike of markets and profit was always at the center of ObamaCare.
Now the debate can be more clearly and properly framed and pursued, especially by conservatives.
