    When you disagree with MV he becomes irrational.

    The federal government was still requiring you to purchase a product. That is indeed unconstitutional.
    It was never a tax, nor was it ever intended to be. Obama, you know, the guy who's name is on the thing, slathered on about how it WASN'T a tax.

    Nonsense, it is a very important distinction.

    That is not what should have made the ACA declared unconstitutional. It was unconstitutional because the federal government was mandating that you purchase a product or face the imposition of a tax or penalty. That is overstepping their authority.

    The late great Justice Scalia said the same thing.

    That is the truth.
    Could you please quote Scalia saying it was a tax?

    There is a logical fallacy known as The Fallacy of the Complex Question.

    Basically, it is two questions rolled into one.

    The classical example of it is this:

    MV is no Ronald Reagan.

    Whats really odd about MV’s position is that the left is hyperventilating over Kavanaugh’s demonstrated hostility to the ACA. MV claims the exact opposite about the guy.

    You have no idea why the ACA should have been declared unconstitutional and it had nothing to do with whether or not it contained a tax or penalty.

    Lol, I have no idea? Why, because you say so? You're smarter than Alito, Thomas, Scalia, and even Kennedy? Oooo-kay.

    BTW, I've never mentioned what I think about the constitutionally of Obama care. Are you some kinda mind reader?

    I showed you Scalia's dissent where Scalia describes that Roberts rewrote the statute to turn a penalty written into the law into a tax (that was not in the law). I described for you Kavanaugh, debating with one of the attorneys on the same point arguing that the penalty written into law as a penalty could be considered a tax despite the tax not being written into law.

    I believe anyone who would make the argument that judges can turn one law into another are dangerous to our liberties. You dissent.
    You were misled about Kavanaugh.



    Kavanaugh’s thorough and principled takedown of the mandate was indeed a roadmap for the Supreme Court—the Supreme Court dissenters, justices Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito, who explained that the mandate violated the Constitution. I am very familiar with that opinion, because I served as Kennedy’s law clerk that term. I can tell you with certainty that the only justices following a roadmap from Brett Kavanaugh were the ones who said Obamacare was unconstitutional....snip~
