I don’t usually listen to talk radio. But today I’ve made an exception, and I think that Rush Limbaugh’s approach makes a lot of sense. His point: Obama passed the biggest tax increase in history and committed fraud on the American people by insisting it wasn’t a tax.
That could be made into a campaign slogan.
[ADDENDUM: Limbaugh also pointed out what I hadn't gotten around to discussing yet, which is that part of the decision involved the states and Medicaid. The Court ruled that states could opt out of the Medicaid increases required by the Act and not be penalized. This could be significant:
Holding that it would be unconstitutional to terminate existing Medicaid funds to states that refuse to go along with the Medicaid expansion is quite significant, particularly as seven justices joined this result. While the holding here may not go beyond the limits articulated in South Dakota v. Dole, the Supreme Court has not limited the exercise of the spending power to impose conditions on states since the New Deal and, again, seven justices endorsed this result. Going forward, I expect this portion of the opinion to have the greatest practical impact. In fact, I can think of some federal laws, including portions of the Clean Air Act, that are likely to be challenged on these grounds.]
