The Supreme Court’s review of Obamacare this week may be one of the most significant cases they’ve taken in decades, because it will determine whether Congress’s power is, essentially, unlimited under the Commerce Clause and whether the concept of enumerated powers still holds. Does the government have the power to do anything it wants, or only the powers enumerated in the Constitution? This is a big week for our country. And a scary one.
On a more prosaic note, Obamacare also means more taxes. Over at the Heritage Foundation, they’ve developed the below chart, which shows the 17 new taxes that will kick in under this “free” healthcare plan. But honestly, more taxes seem like small potatoes compared to the destruction of constitutional liberties that will ensue if Obamacare is upheld.
