The elated Statists who support the Obamacare manda…er, tax are so enthralled with the Supreme Court’s opinion that they have now turned their sights to the States deciding whether to take the Medicaid provision that was struck down by the Supreme’s. Adam Serwer, writing for Mother Jones, writes:
Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer, who were both appointed by Democratic presidents, joined the conservative wing of the court in arguing that the Medicaid expansion was unconstitutionally coercive—”a gun to the head,” of the states, in Roberts’ wording. But all that “coercive” means here is that conservative politicians would have to face the wrath of their constituents for refusing free money from the federal government.
That’s right, according to the leftists at Mother Jones, governors might face voter wrath for refusing the FREE MONEY to participate in the Medicaid portion of Obamacare/tax. So, it’s not only the gross expansion of the government by Obamacare/tax, it’s all that, “free money” out there. Statists actually believe there is such a thing as, “free money.” Based on the fed being able to print money at will and without oversight, they’re probably correct.
