The SC decision, while placing a limit around the already over-expansive interpretation of the commerce clause, has simply made the taxing power of the federal government unlimited. The good part is that to reign in this taxing power of the state, people need only elect politicians who will limit that power. So dems can run and hide from the tax label on Obamacare all they want, but defunding Obamacare can be done by rescinding the tax penalty for non compliance. But you are right. Obama said over and over that this wasnt a tax and the SC found that it was. All the cherry picking and word games in the world wont change that. Trying to squirm their way out of this only makes dems look foolish.
