Yesterday, the Supreme Court finally heard the long-awaited arguments on the constitutionality of the Obamacare mandate that forces every American to buy health insurance. Even supporters of the law admitted that it went badly for the government. Swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy suggested that the bill fundamentally changes the relationship between the government and citizens, and would give Congress unlimited power.
- Congress members were shocked, saying they thought they already have unlimited power!
- If the Supreme Court doesn’t rule in their favor, the White House says they’ll plead their case to Diana Ross.
- Newt Gingrich said that’s baloney because once he’s elected President he’ll be the one with unlimited power!
Justice Kennedy and the conservative justices said that if Obamacare is allowed to stand, what would keep Congress from ordering Americans to buy broccoli for health, cell phones in case they need to call 911, or burial plots because eventually everybody dies.
- Well, everybody but Elvis.
