The Supreme Court of the United States has decided the constitutionality of Obamacare, Obama's signature piece of legislation, has withstood its scrutiny. The ruling was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts rendering the deciding vote and siding with the liberal faction of the court. I will tell you that as I put pen to this column, I have not read the entire opinion. I respect the opinion of the high court, even as I vehemently and bitterly disagree with the majority ruling. I will not curse them or call them names.
With that as a caveat, I submit that the high court has not done the Obama administration any favors. Quite the opposite. What they have done is tantamount to the weakest person in town casually walking up to the most powerful and dangerous person in town and not just slapping him in the face, but spitting on him and then giving him the single-finger salute as he turns to nonchalantly walk away. If that person thinks he can victimize that strong person without paying a significant personal price, he is moments away from finding out how wrong he is.
The point of the referenced analogy is that I believe the Supreme Court has ignited a wave of opposition to Obama and those legislators who are responsible for placing this yoke of government burden around our neck.

Keep in mind that the court ruled in accordance with the arguments of lawyers willing to change language and argue the very thing Obama and his minions claimed the Affordable Care Act was not. This was the success of the oral arguments when the high court sanctioned the slaughter of unborn children and when it sanctioned the removal of God from the public square.
Obamacare was a bitterly opposed law America still opposes. Obama is too narcissistic not to crow like the Marxist banty rooster he is. He will rub this in the face of those politicos who opposed it, not caring that he is rubbing it in the face of We the People.
My friends, our course has been laid before us. The battle has been brought to our doorsteps by government fiat. We do not have time to weep and wring our hands. We must work feverishly to secure the Senate with a super majority, and we must add to our numbers in the House of Representatives. We must demand that legislators defund and repeal Obamacare – not allow it to survive as Congress did abortion and the bastardizing of the Separation Clause.
We must defeat Obama. With this victory in hand, he will be emboldened in ways he no doubt thought of but was reluctant to impose. This is our battle, and if we do not have Congress repeal the law, it will become the abortion issue of our present and future. If we do not remove Obama from office, this is but a hint of what life under his rule will be like the next four years.

But that also means we must not allow John Boehner and his feckless cabal to bluff and bluster and then do nothing. I've had my fill of Boehner going about like a little tin soldier rattling his saber while finding creative ways to cave in.
We don't want Boehner spending his free time playing golf with Obama (as he and Ohio Gov. Kasich are known to do). We want Boehner to have Congress first defund Obamacare and then, when we take over the Senate in November, to repeal it.
If we are not aggressively proactive, Boehner and the vapid Republicans will take what amounts to nothing more than a symbolic vote to repeal the onerous legislation. Then, when their measure reaches the Senate, it will be defeated or ignored and suffer an ignominious death. Boehner will tell us how he tried blah, blah, blah, and that Democrats in the Senate are to blame for Obamacare not being repealed. We've seen him play that game before, and we cannot abide this again.
There has never been a moment in our history as important as this one, because the high court's ruling has opened the door for the expansion and intrusion of government into our lives in the most unprecedented way in history.
The justices handed down a ruling on the law that more than 60 percent of America opposes. If every one of those Americans votes against Obama in November, he will be crushed – and that will be a decision the Supreme Court cannot rule against.
