ObamaCare Upheld as a Tax, But It’s Not the End of the World

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are… But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” – Rocky, from Rocky Balboa (2006)This morning, the United States Supreme Court released its ruling on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. In a 5-4 decision, the Court found that the individual mandate is constitutional, but only as a tax. Chief Justice John Roberts joined Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor in this majority opinion. Justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito, and Clarence Thomas dissented, arguing that the entirety of the law was unconstitutional. To put it bluntly, this is a very complicated ruling that few expected in its given form.

FreedomRadio: What should -- and shouldn't -- replace the Democrats' health mandate

Click here to listen! If the Supreme Court strikes down the individual mandate, what next? My prediction is the mandate could very easily rise from the grave in a new form, namely, the "conservative" idea of giving everybody a new universal health care tax credit, coupled with a policy called "auto-enrollment." I call it a soft mandate, and it’s arguably as bad as the original.

The GDP Seduction

The standard measure of our national economic output is the Gross Domestic Product or GDP. Judging economic performance on the formula for GDP virtually guarantees that government will spend money it doesn't have, whether that money comes from taxing, borrowing, or as is currently in vogue, simply printing it.The standard formula for GDP is:GDP = C + I + NX + G

All of ObamaCare Needs to Go--Including the Under-26 Mandate

Republicans are preparing their course of action as they await the Supreme Court’s highly-anticipated ruling on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. The disastrous health care overhaul bill should be declared unconstitutional, but unfortunately, not all Republicans want it to be gutted in its entirety. Some prominent Republicans are pledging to preserve the so-called most “popular” provisions even if the monstrous law is overturned.

Renewable Energy more Affordable than Coal?

Yesterday, the Senate cleared the way for the Obama administration’s War on Coal with the failure of Senator Inhofe’s resolution to stop the EPA’s Utility MACT.   Rather than promote the fossil fuels that provide affordable and reliable energy for Americans, the Obama administration is pushing renewable energy that is far more expensive and unable to replace the nation’s abundant energy resources. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which began in 2009 and ran until 2011, opened the federal checkbook for renewable energy firms.

Issue Analysis

Hostile Takeover

FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe has a terrific new book, "Hostile Takeover". Kibbe describes how the explosion of information choices available to Americans has already changed politics and will continue to do so.  Though not organized this way, there are three broad themes in the book, leading to one inescapable conclusion:Top-down journalism is a dying paradigmTop-down, Keynesian economics is a tool of oppressionTop-down politics is no way to run a free countryThe inescapable conclusion: while there is a lot of work ahead of the advocates for individual freedom and limited government, the decentralization of information has the wind at our backs.

The Hunger Champion Awards: Race to Waste

Last year, Ashe County, South Carolina received national recognition from the US Department of Agriculture for their work involving the Department of Social Services. However this attention only highlights the wasteful spending of government. Through the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), a USDA agency, the Hunger Champion awards are handed out annually to local government agencies for increasing participation in food stamps or Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP).

Replacing ObamaCare: Pre-existing Condition Pools

Of all the health care issues facing policymakers, the “pre-existing conditions problem” may be the most difficult to solve. What are pre-existing conditions? They’re simply long-term ailments that make it more difficult or expensive to purchase health insurance.
