Be careful what you ask for, Lefties

– Wiccapundit

Not much to say about the ObamaCare decision.   It is what it is.

Here’s what I think.  Leftists will come to regret this decision, when the inevitable Republican administration with a Republican Congress decides to gore one of Liberalism’s oxes.  Say, abortion or gun control.

1. Congress passes a law requiring that before obtaining an abortion, you MUST get counseling on alternative options and sit through lengthy video presentations of what happens during an abortion.   Don’t want to do it?  OK, just pay the substantial tax Congress imposed, like the ObamaCare decision says Congress can require you to do.

2. Congress passes a law (like the one in Kennesaw, Georgia from 1982) requiring all citizens to purchase a firearm and ammunition, in order to increase public security and reduce crime.  Don’t want to do it?  OK, just pay the substantial penalty – er, tax – which Congress thoughtfully set at $10,000.

I think Barack Obama will come to regret this decision as a Pyrrhic victory.  In the end, he will be voted out of office, ObamaCare will be repealed, and the Supreme Court decision upholding it will be relegated to a dusty footnote of interest only to law students suffering through Constitutional Law class.

Careful what you wish, you may regret it

Careful what you wish, you just might get it

    I hope you are right. The more I think about this I can see how it can be used to win in Nov assuming the GOP is smart enough to use it. . . . time will tell

      I’ve been impressed with the RNC fast-response team so far. They have been getting out ads at light-speed. For example, after Obama made his “the private sector is doing fine” gaffe, there was an ad on YouTube within a couple of HOURS. In the past, it would have taken weeks, and the issue would have been old news.

      If Mitt is savvy enough to keep the message on point – jobs, ObamaCare, deficit (rinse and repeat) – the cave-dwelling “moderates” who only pay attention to politics when it kicks them in the gonads will take notice, I believe.

    it still sets a heck of a precedent ghough and that part still scares me.
