Preemptive Fearmongering on SCOTUS Obamacare Decision

Tomorrow is the big day, the United States Supreme Court will announce their decision on the lawsuits filed by several states over Barack Obama’s signature legislation rammed through by a lame duck congress, Obamacare. Or, as Democrats prefer to falsely label it, the Affordable Care Act, the one former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi famously said we would have to pass in order to see what was in it.

No one knows yet which way the high court will decide on whether the federal government can force citizens into buying a product they may not desire.

The pollsters have been busy, though, polling Americans on what they want to see from the Court. According to the Houston Chronicle,
“Only 10% of Americans expect Supreme Court to uphold all of ObamaCare.”

“33 percent — say they expect the court to uphold portions of the law but strike down the requirement that Americans either buy insurance or pay a fine, the poll finds.”

“18 percent believe that the court will strike down the entire law and send Congress back to the drawing board.”
Left leaning ABC News informs us of their own polling on Obamacare is “seen favorably by 59 percent of Democrats, falling sharply to 36 percent of independents and just 14 percent of Republicans. Ideological divisions are similar, with liberals nearly three times more supportive of the law than are conservatives,” right down partisan lines as expected.

ABC also tells of the overall polling, “Just 36 percent in this ABC News/Washington Post poll express a favorable opinion of the health care law under Supreme Court review.”

We read, “54% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care bill, while 39% are at least somewhat opposed. This includes 43% who Strongly Favor repeal and 28% who are Strongly Opposed to it,” from Rasmussen. Their polling has consistently shown over half of American citizens favor repeal of Obamacare.

Since this is Obama’s signature accomplishment so far, other than leading our country closer towards total economic collapse and knowing that over half of all voters polled want to see it repealed, at least in part, what else would we see from Democrats except efforts to demonize Republicans and the Tea Party.

Two emails received so far make such claims.

One came from Crystal King, Political Director with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee saying in part, “No matter what happens, Republicans will never stop trying to tear this landmark law to pieces-- along with the rest of President Obama’s agenda.”

Sort of soft, but nonetheless, does she not know that is exactly what over half of America wants?

Another email received came from Patrick Kennedy, son of deceased drunken womanizer Ted Kennedy. He took a much harder stand saying, “If the Court upholds the law, dangerous Tea Party extremists will go on a rampage.”

“Go on a rampage?” When was the last time you ever heard of any Tea Party rally rampaging, disrupting people, blocking traffic or causing damage to any property by vandalism or rioting?

Copies of both emails here.

I’ve never heard of one incident and when there were disruptions, it was caused by infiltrators, liberals trying to instigate or make Tea Partiers appear racist, violent or such nefarious actions we have long been falsely accused of.

Occupy Wall Street, Unions and Anarchists engage in rampages, but we of the Tea Party do not.

But that we do not act in such a manner is of no consequence to Democrats who have no compunction at telling bald faced lies to further their agenda.

Will we fight for our rights if Obamacare is upheld tomorrow? Hell Yes! Will we riot or go on any sort of “rampage?” No.

That is not us.

But leave it to Democrats to already begin lying even before it is known how the decision will go.

You can bet your bottom dollar, though. If Obamacare is overturned, it is Democrats who will be angry and after the actions and conduct seen last fall from them and their anarchist supporters, there is no telling what they may do.

But, whichever way the decision comes down, it will not be Tea Partiers acted like Bolsheviks throwing a huge tantrum.
