Four quick steps to understanding the Supreme Court Obamacare decision



By Robert Sassone,

Guest Columnist

Road Sign: Travelers, Mr. Sassone is one of the attorneys who with permission of the Court filed a brief on the law to the US Supreme Court in the Obamacare case


Step 1 See Video of President Obama in 2009 defending Obamacare by stating on TV six times that there is no tax in the Obamacare mandate. These six "no tax" claims by President Obama are all false as shown by step 3 where Obama argues just the opposite to the US Supreme Court, that the Obamacare mandate includes a tax. Google

Step 2 Read the Supreme Court dissent by Justices Scalia et al. arguing that the Text of the Obamacare law passed in 2010 states eighteen times that there is no tax in the Obamacare mandate, Google:




See page 21 of the dissent of Justices Scalia et al which states in part:


“But we have never—never—treated as a tax an exaction which faces up to the critical difference between a tax and a penalty, and explicitly denominates the exaction a “penalty.” Eighteen times in §5000A itself and elsewhere throughout the Act, Congress called the exaction in §5000A(b) a “penalty.”

Step 3 (President Obama states through his attorney in 2012 to US Supreme Court that contrary to what President Obama himself repeatedly stated (Step 1) and contrary to what the Obamacare law itself repeatedly states (Step 2), there is a tax in the Obamacare mandate .


Step 4 June 28, 2012 the US Supreme Court by a 5-4 vote accepted the statement of Obama’s attorney that the Obamacare law is constitutional only because the mandate includes a tax.,
