In a truly astounding and disgusting ruling today, the Supreme Court has upheld President Obama’s absurd mandate that all Americans be force-fed health insurance, however under the guise of a “tax.” The hypocrisy was neck deep in the statements coming out of “conservative” turncoat, Chief Justice John Roberts, who stated plainly that the Affordable Care Act was in violation of the Constitution, as the government could not force Americans to purchase a service.

The only bright spot is that individual states can still opt out of Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid due to to its threat of removing all Medicaid funding from any state that refuses to comply. That was ruled unconstitutional. In the grand scheme of
