November 16, 2012 in Ed Willing, Federal Taxation, Health Care, Restoring Country, Restoring Family by Founders Intent

By Ed Willing Since the Supreme Court’s infamous 4-1-4 ruling on the Affordable Care Act in June, nearly two dozen states have grappled with whether or not to comply with the first of many forthcoming deadlines found in the rules written (and still being written) by the functionally unconstitutional entity known as the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). November 16th is the deadline, and a flurry of letters are finding their way to Kathleen Sebelius’ desk this afternoon telling her they will not comply with the requirement to set up an exchange.

Lately, there have been many ideas floated around to get our fiscal house in order. On the Left, seems to be pushing only one agenda: tax tax tax. Tax corporations, tax the rich! This rhetoric has no foundation in common sense. It’s nothing less than class warfare at best, and certainly the consistent knee-jerk reaction by the liberals on all levels of government.
