If I see one more person on the internets suggest that perhaps Justice Roberts is being clever and outwitted the Dems by using a tax justification instead of the Commerce Clause I will scream.
Stop. Please stop.
People, the progressives just reached out from Congress to force you (force you) to enter into a private contract against your will and they didn’t even need the Commerce clause or the good ‘n plenty clause to do it. If they can do this all without even the need or pretense to use the Commerce Clause, there is almost nothing they cannot do.
Justice Roberts is not being clever, he is being craven. You liberty is gone, you just haven’t felt the effects yet.
