After a full day's reflection, we still feel that the ObamaCare ruling is an outrage. And while we acknowledge that it's now settled law, we believe that it's poor public policy and needs to be expunged from the books.
We're still nettled by the Supreme Court ruling that ObamaCare's individual mandate can stand constitutionally as a tax when Congress failed to define the penalty for failing to buy health insurance that way. But we can do nothing about that. The court has spoken.
What we can do, with an eye toward repeal, is point out just how malignant the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is.
We began this exercise on Friday, when we wrote about ObamaCare's hidden taxes. The law imposes at least 21 new or higher levies that will cost trillions. That's too much to demand of hard-pressed taxpayers.
New taxes aren't the only rising burden under ObamaCare. Far from being a law that will cut costs, it will increase them.
