Now, 17 days before the election, we have a new poll provided to me by Fox News showing that 59 percent of Americans want ObamaCare either repealed or modified. This is not good news for the Democrats who voted for this atrocity. The only Democrats you can find campaigning on ObamaCare are the ones who are pleading to their constituents, “Hey, I didn’t vote for that thing!” So much for The Community Organizer’s principal legislative achievement. Now we have a federal judge in Florida ruling that a lawsuit brought by the attorneys general of 20 states on the constitutionality of the mandate can go forward. With any luck we’re looking at the beginning of the end of ObamaCare.
By the way, regarding that federal lawsuit. When Obama was pushing his health care takeover, he told George Stephanopoulos that the mandate was just definitely and absolutely not a tax and was not a violation of his pledge not to raise taxes on 95 percent of Americans. But just how did the Obama administration argue in federal court that the mandate was constitutional? Why, they said it was a tax! That one slipped by your radar screen, didn’t it?
Well, you have 17 days to wait, and then you can make up for your lack of due diligence.
