The insistence that Obama’s healthcare bill was not a tax, was never a tax and would never be a tax, by Obama and many other Demectrats, may have backfired. After the Supreme Court ruling last week, the bill was passed AS A TAX. However, Article 1 Section 7 of the Constitution says “All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives”. Because the Affordable Healthcare for America Act was only passed “as a tax”, and did not originate in the House of Representatives, is it valid?
There is really no good reason for lawmakers and politicians not to follow the law or proper legal procedure. Yet it is becoming more and more consistently part of the legal and political system to ignore laws and just do as each individual person thinks fit.
