Apparently, the Federal government can make you buy stuff if you don’t buy it. For the first time in US history, the federal government can make you buy something you don’t want to, thanks to Chief Justice John Roberts. Anybody who believes the government is too big and powerful now have even more to worry about.
Roberts may have voted yes to the “mandate’” provision of the law, because corporate insurance companies will enhance their profits with the law more so than without the law. He tends to vote for whatever redistributes the most money from the 99 to the 1 percent, and his stance on this issue may have everything to do with corporate profits than the constitution, which is typical of the corrupt Koch Brothers/corporate wing of the court.
“If an individual does not maintain health insurance, the only consequence is that he must make an additional payment to the IRS when he pays his taxes,” Roberts writes. He adds that this means “the mandate is not a legal command to buy insurance. Rather, it makes going without insurance just another thing the government taxes, like buying gasoline or earning an income.”
In other words, Roberts thinks the government can tax you for not buying something. Where in the Constitution is this provision?
