The ACA Is Constitutional!Posted Thursday, June 28, 2012, at 6:03 PM
I agree with the majority of the SCOTUS that the ACA is constitutional due to the Sixteenth Amendment which reads...
"The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration."
I don't have anything to add except for this: if you really want to repeal Obamacare, and make sure that Romneycare isn't passed into law by a possible future Republican majority Congress, strike the root and work to repeal the Sixteenth Amendment. Otherwise everything is constitutional.

I was born in Cape Girardeau, Mo., in 1972, and grew up in the Chaffee area where I still reside with my lovely wife and three beautiful and talented daughters. I have been employed in the paper industry for the past 14 years and am a member of St. Ambrose Catholic Church. In my spare time I support my local parochial school, listen to and perform music, and read. This is my second run for U.S. Congress as the Libertarian Party candidate. In 2010 I was endorsed by the Boston Tea Party and received an "A" rating from the Gun Owners of America. Since my last campaign I supported the opposition to the smoking ban in Cape Girardeau, gathered signatures for the Show-Me Cannabis initiative, was elected to the Missouri State Libertarian Party Executive Committee, and recently won the Champion of Freedom Award. I hope that my candidacy helps to advance the cause of individual liberty. I welcome your questions and comments. Thank you for reading!
