ObamaCare was passed through Congress with the violation of Congressional rules by using reconciliation measure, which has only been used for minor bills and budgets. The Senate had 60 Democrats support it so that it was filibuster proof. Several Democrats were offered deals or were bought off and was passed on December 24, 2009, on Christmas Eve. It was passed through the House 219-212 without a single Republican supporting it on a Sunday, March 21, 2010. The Progressives had the ball rolling for the passage of this abomination of a Bill and the beginning of the end of the Constitution had begun, with one branch of Government under their control.
On November 2, 2010, Americans showed their outrage at this heinous political assault committed against them and our Constitution by the Left, by giving the Democrats at all levels of local, State and Federal Government, one of the biggest defeats that they have ever had. Even their beloved Ted Kennedy's seat was given by the voters to a Republican, Scott Brown.
President Barack Hussein Obama quickly signed the law on March 23, 2010. He passed this law continuously stating that it was not a tax - now a known lie. This branch of Government was given to the Progressives with the 2008 election by the American people.
Yesterday, on June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court, with the deciding vote given by Chief Justice John Roberts, sustained ObamaCare validity as a tax. The court was evenly divided by four to four by Conservatives and Progressives. Chief Justice Roberts a Conservative, appointed by President George W. Bush, then surprisingly supported it, obviously becoming a Progressive himself at that moment or having been a stealth liberal all along. His decision is final and cannot be furthered argued but it shows to what length the Progressives have gone to to destroy this concept of our Nation and the Constitution.
The Government has become a behemoth on to itself and it is not what the 'founding fathers' ever intended it to be. Is this the end of our Great Republic? Who knows, only time will tell.
