The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense

“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775

"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Supreme Court Decision On Obamacare And Obama's Legacy

Here’s the Nonsense:  The Supreme Court upholding the individual mandate as a tax in Obamacare is a victory for Obama.  His legacy will be historic because of it.

Here’s the Horse Sense:  President Obama’s legacy will not be positive regardless of the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare.  The destruction of this nation will be his legacy, Obamacare will only be seen as one of the methods used to destroy the nation.

President Obama will go down in history as the one who succeeded at bringing down our nation.  Obamacare is not the money-saving program it was sold to us as, nor is it the improvement to quality of care and access to healthcare either.

In my new book, No Tomorrows: How To Halt America’s Imminent Collapse And Return To The American Dream – And Why It Must Start With The 2012 Elections, I identify the 3 core problems that will destroy America and how to fix them.  One of those involves our economy and debt.  Obamacare is nothing but a debt-increasing nightmare.  It represents 1/6 of the nation’s economy adding trillions in debt while reducing the quality and availability of care.  The immense failure of nationalized healthcare in country’s like Britain are good example why we should be running as fast as we can from these kinds of programs. 

It is said that President Obama has paid a high price to push Obamacare through.  The fact is that the price he paid is miniscule compared to what America will pay for what his presidency has done to us.  Defeating the president in the upcoming election has got to be the priority of the American people.  That is the only way to turn this decision around.  Just because the Supreme Court has upheld Obamacare does not mean that Congress and a new administration still cannot repeal it.  That must now be the focus of our nation to save ourselves from collapse.
