The Supreme Court oral arguments over the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, which, in a dramatic reversal, even Obama now calls “Obamacare,” shined a spotlight on the battle hat will be joined in November, a battle for the soul of this nation; that is, are we a country that guarantees opportunity, but not results, for all?
The Obama campaign has been planning for at least a year to run against a caricature straight out of a Gilded Age cartoon, and now with Mitt Romney on the verge of clinching the nomination, they and their Lame Stream Media allies are ramping up the class envy rhetoric, hoping to stoke the voting enthusiasm of their most loyal constituency, the Takers, who believe they are entitled to some of what the Makers have produced. In large measure, that’s what the health care debate is about, a “remade” America in which the fruits of one person’s labor are taken through the coercive force of the federal government and given to another. Isn’t is a measure of how far we’ve come from the Founders’ vision that there could be even the slightest belief that this statute could pass constitutional muster? And what of the failure of Justice Kagan, who was the Solicitor General at the time the law was passed, to recuse herself from the case? We’ll ask our guest, Van Irion of the Liberty Legal Foundation, these questions, and also get his take on what the Court will decide.
Sen. Marco Rubio came out last week and endorsed Mitt Romney, albeit in a rather tepid, almost resigned “Oh, all right, I guess it’s going to be him” statement. Is he correct that a brokered convention helps only one guy, Barack Obama? Why won’t Santorum acknowledge, as Newt Gingrich did earlier this week, that Mitt Romney will almost certainly be the nominee? Is he right? Is Marco Rubio the perfect running mate for Mitt, and is he even eligible to run?
