SCOTUS Health Care Decision: The top 1% now has the right to TAX and KILL the 99%
"The power to tax is the power to destroy."
This quotation comes from the words of DANIEL WEBSTER and
those of JOHN MARSHALL in the Supreme Court case, McCulloch v. Maryland.
Webster, in arguing
the case, said: “An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to
destroy,” 17 U.S. 327 (1819).
In his decision,
Chief Justice Marshall said: “That the power of taxing it [the bank] by the
States may be exercised so as to destroy it, is too obvious to be denied” (p.
427), and “That the power to tax involves the power to destroy … [is] not to be
denied” (p. 431).
"The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the individual health-insurance mandate that is at the heart of President Obama's Health-Care law, saying the mandate is permissible under Congress’s taxing authority."(Washington Post)
If the SCOTUS decision is correct, and the money that you'll be forced to pay for a product that you may-or-may not want or can afford is a "TAX"? Then, it's a tax to be paid directly to the big insurance and pharmaceutical corporations, that are owned by the mega-international banking corporations like
Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.
Not one private corporate "TAX" dollar will go to build one school, Fire Department or Highway. It will all go to that evil 1% banking and insurance corporations, that 99% of the Obama supporters hate.(How's your "Hope and Change" NOW people?)
I've personally have had expensive surgeries and medical treatments provided to me when I had very little money, and no insurance.
But, I still received the very best medical care that was provided (for free) by the states charity care insurance plan. Most people who know about medical charity care get the same access to the best treatment available. Long before anyone ever heard of Obama/Romney Care.
Today’s ruling is important because it's the first time in history that
the federal government has required citizens enter into contract with
private corporations to buy a product or service.
Now, because of today's SCOTUS decision, which legally legitimizes the Obama/Romney Care Act. All the previous charity medical care is going to disappear, and the quality of your medical treatment will not be determined by a medical professionals, like it should be. It's now going to be decided by a board of bureaucrats looking after the best financial interest of the insurance company.
The insurance companies medical board will conduct themselves like a group of deranged American Idol judges. And, they'll decide the quality of your care that you'll receive, based on what is in the best financial interest of the insurance companies, that you're forced into a contract with, and pay for with your "TAX" dollars.
Which in turn, is given directly to the Mega Insurance Corporations, owned by the 5 mega private international Banking corporations-the 1%- like Wells Fargo, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, with Goldman Sachs sitting at the top. They're your new Gods deciding your medical fate, and ultimately on whether you'll live or will DIE!!
Got a broken leg? Sorry, no surgery for you if you're 60 or too fat. The hospital bureaucrats will vote to give you a cane just before they kick you to the curb.
How about expensive surgery in the next month, to remove a tumor that's going to kill you in 6 months, if it's not removed? Sorry again, if you've ever been arrested for a DWI and over weight by 10 pounds over the national average. You're just not worth the financial investment of your private insurance company.(your medical corporate "TAX" money at work)
Insurance Bureaucrat #1: "I don't know, the patient is a bit over-weight, and so old that he's receiving social security. Let's vote to schedule him for that life saving surgery in a year, instead of at the end of the month? Can I see a show of hands who are in favor?"
