Texas Federal Judge Rules Obamacare Unconstitutional. Dems Promising “Tooth and Nail” Fight to Keep It.

Obamacare ruled unconstitutional

After the Texas Federal Judge ruling of Obamacare unconstitutional, it is likely going to pass through the 5th Federal District, then head to the Supreme Court. As pointed out in an earlier post, 20 State Attorney General’s brought a suit against the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) on the basis of its Constitutionality.

The suit pointed out that Obamacare was ruled Constitutional based on its tax provisions. However, the Trump tax act legislation eliminated the Obamacare individual mandate tax erasing the very pinion that the Supreme Court used to rule Obamacare as Constitutional. Once the tax portion was eliminated, Obamacare became vulnerable to a challenge. Twenty State Attorney General’s generated a law suit against it in June.

Just recently U.S. District Federal Judge Reed O’Connor for the Northern District of Texas, appointed by George W. Bush, ruled that Obamacare violated the Constitution based on the State Attorney General’s law suit (Texas v. Azar). The judge ruled that because the individual mandate is “essential” to the rest of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), all of the Act is invalid:

Congress stated many times unequivocally — through enacted text signed by the president — that the individual mandate is ‘essential’ to the ACA,” O’Connor wrote. “And this essentiality, the ACA’s text makes clear, means the mandate must work ‘together with the other provisions’ for the Act to function as intended.

The ruling came one day in front of the day Obamacare open enrollment period ends. Enrollment sign-ups are down 20% this year alone.

Predictable Democrat Freak Out Begins

The Democrats are already freaking out as Chuckie Schumer showed on Meet the Press on Sunday 12/16/18:

Chuckie Schumer: It’s an awful ruling  [The Texas Court Ruling]. It undoes pre-existing conditions. It jeopardizes the 10’s of millions of Americans who are getting “good health care”  in the exchange, but it goes way beyond that.

It would knock out funding for the treatment of opiods. It would raise drug prices. It would close the donut-hole so seniors would pay more for drug prices. It would eliminate a lot of maternal care. All kinds of woman’s health. It’s an awful, awful ruling. We’re gonna fight this tooth and nail.

Note: My quotes on Schumer’s claim of “good health care”. Let’s be clear here. Good health care is a specious claim in the face of rising premiums and declining enrollments which dropped 20% during the latest enrollment period. If it is so “good” then why the double digit increases and significant enrollment declines? More political speak from the political class designed to put lipstick on a pig.

Judge Jeanine Pirro: Meanwhile, Democrats are vocal about what they wanted all along- Medicare for All.

Face the Nation Announcer: Former Attorney General Eric Holder says: “It’s time to move to some version of Medicare for All and end this nonsense.” That was his reaction to Friday’s ruling. Do you agree with him?”

Democrat Guest: “We need universal health care. There are many ways to get there and that is one of them.”

MSNBC Announcer to Julian Castro on Potential 2020 Bid: “You become President. You’re sworn in. You have a Democratic House and the Senate. The first bill, the first big domestic policy legislation you move is….

Castro: Healthcare

Announcer: Healthcare. Specifically?

Castro: Well, I believe we need Medicare for All. I believe that we need to recoup the millions of people that have already lost…..

Announcer: So, Medicare for all, first thing out of the box is in the Castro administration?

Watch the video above for the response to the Democrat call for the $32.6 Trillion Medicare for All program from Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, Attorney Brian Rotella and RNC Spokeswoman Kelly Macinelly. Judge Jeanine Pirro monitors the discussion on Hannity.

What It’s Really About for the Democrats

What the Democrats really want is total control over the healthcare marketplace just as they have in the totalitarian Communist States of Russia, China, North Korea and Cuba.

Conversely this gives them control over ALL U.S. citizens. Power is their play not the people’s healthcare. Healthcare is simply a tool they want to use as they do in totalitarian nations governed by Communism as in China, Russia, North Korea and Cuba).

Democrats, who are moving steadily further to the left, are getting closer to revealing their true goal– the conversion of our Constitutional Republic to a totalitarian government inspired by the State dominating the people model of Karl Marx. If that sounds like conspiracy theory, check out the Constitution’s of China, Russia, Cuba and North Korea and note who control’s their healthcare- the State, not the marketplace.
