Romney sides with Supreme Court on health care law

The way the debate will play out in this 2012 presidential campaign is that the American voters will realize that they have been lied too. President Obama had repeated over and over again that his healthcare plan was “not a tax”. And supporters in Congress said the same. Now the Supreme court says it “is a tax”. They ruled that Obama Care is constitutional. An issue is the Supreme Court’s decision to up[hold President Obama’s health care law by stating that those who don’t opt in to the insurance system can be taxed for not doing so. The American voters are realizing this, and it will be remembered during the 2012 Presidential campaign.

The Supreme court decision may have given the American voters the opportunity to expose the Obama lie this year. The voters are fearful of Obama care and for that reason will fight against it. They want to take back their country and repeal Obama care. Mitt Romney says if he wins this election, Obama care will be the first issue he will appeal, because he is trying to sell the idea that Obama’s health care bill contains a tax because the Supreme Court said it does. And the health care law that Obama signed in Massachusetts contains a penalty for a fee, because that’s what he called it at the time and the court offered no ruling on those state-based laws.

I don’t know if Democrats will still control the senate, but the way this will play out during this election campaign the Republicans may gain this fall, because voters will not like Obama care being forced upon them. We may see a lot of Democrats being thrown out of office with tax increased on our country. Let’s not forget about the “Tea party” who will get involved and vote on a large number and get their friends and neighbors to do the same. And since the Supreme court ruling Republicans have much higher interest in this election than Democrats. And I believe Democrats are worried about this.

Lately, the League of American voters has launched a “National Ad Campaign” And is out to expose Obama’s dangerous program that changes our health care system.

Obama care will be front and center in the 2012 Presidential election Jobs are sure to be a major issue and the economy. This year is going to be a very busy election year. A real challenge!
