Carmelo Riley thanks for watching us tonight I'm sorry about the voice sendoff all of that it is allergy season here in the northeast and it is descended upon me.
But anyway we'll muddle through.
A bad day for obamacare the Supreme Court that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo consensus is that solicitor general Donna.
Donald for a rally that representing the Obama administration did not did not make a strong argument in asserting.
That the federal government has a right to force Americans to buy health insurance or anything else of that map.
Morelli got caught when he tried to call the fine.
That would be imposing Americans didn't buy health insurance eight tax.
Liberal justice Stephen Breyer wasn't buying and it.
They think attacks -- nearly impossible but.
But he keeps things tax.
They pay the tax penalty -- you might as well.
I handled it from its record.
-- of course it's a penalty this tax thing is completely bogus it's a penalty.
And that means -- government is punishing on us if we don't conform.
To the federal demand purchase what they want us to purchase.
That ladies and gentlemen is flat out unconstitutional.
The feds cannot force system by anything.
Nowhere in the constitution -- power found.
The other pro Obama -- argument is equally weak the so called commerce clause where by the feds regulate interstate transactions.
Gives congress the power to force us to buy things.
Our point that out last night.
One thing -- federal government compels you to buy one thing well.
Let me say that under that militia act of 79 YouTube people were compelled to buy must -- and powder.
But was actually was not choir the militia act.
This doesn't actually require people to buy health insurance and they would be good if you read the legislation because -- -- that it poses a penalty.
And a penalty is different from that's compelling somebody lives something if you're going to -- them for not doing it.
Now the militia active 1792.
I'm sure we're all familiar with it's very interesting that was.
Basically a mandate by the federal government to the fourteen existing states at the time.
To raise as standing militia so the new nation could defend itself if invaded as it was an 1812.
The militia act had nothing to do with commerce so mr.
Fredericks and with all due respect was misleading you.
Today it became clear and Supreme Court that most of the justices are extremely skeptical.
Of Obama care.
Here the government is saying.
That the federal government has a duty to tell the individual citizens that it.
Must act and that is different.
From what we have in previous cases.
Well it changes the relationship with the federal government to the individual.
In a very fundamental way.
In other words if obamacare is allowed to stand federal power would be increased to a point where Americans could be told exactly how to spend their money.
Precedent will be established.
But it won't be.
The court is going to ruled health care mandate unconstitutional what passed the justices cannot allow -- power grab like that.
In the end America must overhaul its health care system we all know that.
And it must use the free market to do it.
Obamacare is a disaster economically socially and politically.
And that's true.
