ObamaCareless

The ‘ObamaCare’ healthcare reforms which pundits are keen to brand as Barack Obama’s flagship policy have hit upon yet another difficulty, being ruled ‘unconstitutional’ by federal judges. The package is deemed unconstitutional because it would force people to buy health insurance or face a penalty—presumably making taxation ‘unconstitutional’ too.

In spite of its ailing healthcare system, America is still firmly the leader of the free world thanks to its exemplary independent judiciary. According to the Telegraph,

Each judge who has ruled on the issue has so far followed the party line of the president that appointed him, and when the case is heard in the Supreme Court it too is also likely to divide along ideological lines.

Besides which, being slaves to the constitution is ludicrous anyway: the Founding Fathers, smart though it’s obligatory to acknowledge they were, couldn’t possibly have foreshadowed a black guy presiding over the most expensive healthcare system in the World. But then, perhaps a black guy presiding over the most expensive healthcare system in the world couldn’t possibly have foreshadowed the Founding Fathers fighting his attempts to improve it from beyond the grave.
