Administration Shoots From The Bowels On ObamaCare Brief

Via the WaPoo:

Lawmakers decided that requiring health insurance was the best solution “after years of careful consideration and after a vigorous national debate,” Verrilli told the court.
“That was a policy choice the Constitution entrusts the democratically accountable branches to make, and the court should respect it.”

Donald B. Verrilli Jr., you Orewllian crapflooder. Lawmakers decided this after ‘years of careful consideration’? Princess Pelosi and crew did the Judas Priest impression without even reading the Mike Foxtrot. Oh, you probably meant the consideration they gave their stock portfolios. And vigorous national debate? A plurality still think Obamacare should be repealed. No amount of Orwellian suppositories can substitute for liberty, Verrilli.

The ‘court should respect it’? Why is the will of the voters, expressed in 2010, not worthy of consideration?

I submit that this administration, and this particular piece of legislation, shall be viewed in hindsight as the high water mark of Progressivism. You’re on the wrong side of history, Verrilli.

    Don’t worry, Don.  Mitt says he only wants to repeal the ‘bad’ parts.

    Don’t forget the “careful consideration” also included a parliamentary trick to get it passed as a “reconciliation” bill to avoid a filibuster after Satan called Ted Kennedy home.

    Totalitarian states are always initiated “for the public good” and “completely within the legal boundaries”.
