... we win. David Rivkin on ObamaCare and its demolition before the Supreme Court:
"We have already won in the sense that the entire court's attention was on the Constitution's structural limitation on governmental power. That's the ultimate indictment—not just of ObamaCare, but of everything this administration has done."
Besides the fact that Obama's signature piece of legislation was going to drive the cost of health care through the roof, besides the fact that it was going to destroy the finest health care delivery system ever devised by humankind, besides the fact that our president and his minions repeatedly lied to us about that which constituted his "Affordable Care Act," he, they, and it came very close to taking away what's left of our freedom. Freedom to choose. Freedom to live our lives without government intrusion. Freedom to prosper.
Though I have some doubt about Rivkin's assertion that "the entire court's attention was on the Constitution's structural limitation on governmental power" - after all, three members of that court, Sotomayor, Ginsburg, and Kagan seemed more preoccupied with cheerleading and excuse-making for the Obama administration than with any constitutional question - all, in all, we made progress in the debate - finally we're having this debate! - over the damage being done to our liberty by an ever more intrusive government.
Here's to David Rivkin and those who made it possible.
