    Being Right

    A court case challenging taxation in states based on the ACA (AKA Obamacare) will likely reveal our successful effort to stop a state run exchange to be well worth the time.

    We have apparently inoculated ourselves.  In the complaint Halbig v. Sebelius it is shown that an application of the law as-it-is-written means Michigan taxpayers are NOT eligible for subsidies, and NOT subject to the tax (penalties) assessment for failure to obtain insurance. Netright daily reports:

    "Under the specific language of the law, tax subsidies (and tax penalties) on individuals and employers only apply in states that created these exchanges. It's right there in black-and-white -- as the availability of subsidies was expressly confined to qualified plans enrolled "through an Exchange established by the State."

    Obamacare makes no mention of these subsidies being provided in federal exchanges.

    And as noted further in the article, there was an expectation for the states to roll over and capitulate with the new exchange money promise.

    The plaintiff argument on this point is clearly stated starting at about page 10 of the document.

    A big THANK YOU to those who stood firm in their resolve against the state run exchange will be repeated as this case moves further along and the act is found even more unworkable as the miserable failure spawned by overreaching NEO-Democrat (read fascist/socialist) operatives in power.  It was theirs.  Let it remain owned by those who have no understanding of the constitution.

    Recall that NOT a single (not even the squishy ones) Republican voted for this garbage.

    A shame there was an attempt by a so called Republican governor in Michigan to punish us all through participation with such schemes.

    A Victory To Be Proud Of (none / 0) (#1)

    The Snyder/Bolger/Richardville trifecta decided we should succumb to their wishes, and rammed the state partnership health exchange bill through the statehouse- 3 days after the final day of the MRP Convention in Lansing in February of this year.

    While reaching out to some trusted allies in Lansing on that miserable Tuesday, I was told to "sit this one out", "don't get the grassroots involved in a senate battle on this", and that "it would be rammed through in similar fashion- so don't set yourself up for a guaranteed and humiliating defeat". "Protect your allies from the demoralizing fact that the "bigs" wanted it", they said, and "there's nothing we could do about it". In other words, "it was a done deal", and that any and all resistance was futile.

    But thanks to the dedication of thousands of activists across the entire state, a withering assault was laid on the senate, the house, the emperor's office, the state party chair, the county chairs, at least most of the GOP Congressmen from Michigan, and radio talk shows in some of the major markets in Michigan.

    Michigan's liberty warriors answered the call to action, and we all owe them another loving Tip of the Hat for their hard work and relentless positive action. Without them, we would only be wishing, instead of knowing, that we're a major thorn in the side of Obamacare.
