@MattRooneyNJ: “We’re Right Back in the Position We Were Before 1776″ (VIDEO)

Matt Rooney and I don’t agree 100% on Chief Justice Robert’s Affordable Care Act decision, Save Jerseyans, but he certainly found a receptive audience yesterday afternoon in Philadelphia, PA.

Matt participated in a Fourth of July “Celebrate American Exceptionalism” hosted by our good friends over at the Independence Hall Tea Party. I’ve posted one 3+ minute clip from Matt’s remarks below during a panel discussion of the Obamacare ruling, possible avenues of repeal and, naturally, the consequences of failing to affect repeal. Basically, Matt argues that Chief Justice Roberts created a “plenary tax power,” unprecedented in American history and capable of eviscerating limited government in the United States. It’s hotly contested point among the populace as a whole and between conservatives, too.

Check out Matt’s key remarks and feel free to offer your own opinion in the comments:

  1. Sad but true. The colonists rebelled because they didn't have representation in the face of taxation. If the high court is going to start rewriting penalties into taxes then where does it end?

  2. How can we keep these idiots from being corrupted once they've already dawned the robe? Maybe the confirmation process isn't extensive enough?

  3. "As I have explained, the Court's continued use of that test 'has encouraged the Federal Government to persist in its view that the Commerce Clause has virtually no limits.'" – Justice Thomas

  6. Unselfishness from you, my family members, helped me to sleep.
    Do not isolate from the individuals you adore, even if they
    appear to compound the issue. Conversations between buddies, family and cherished-types will be significant.
