Cummings: Obamacare Ruling Will Reawaken Voters
This comment was posted on my blog this morning. Anonymously, of course.
Matt Cartwright's opponent is Laureen Cummings. She's a mother of four, a registered nurse who started a home health care business and is the founder of Scranton's tea party. Here's her reaction to the Supreme Court's Obamacare ruling:
"Today, the American people and the Tea Party can claim a victory with the Supreme Court’s narrowing of the powers of the commerce clause and calling out Obamacare for what it really is: yet another tax.
"In recognizing the individual mandate as a tax, the Supreme Court has clarified to the American people that the Obama Administration has no problem in further punishing Americans with yet another massive tax burden, even in the midst of what President Obama claims to be the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression.
"This decision will reawaken the electorate and those Americans who not only want government out of their lives, but also, who refuse to give the IRS even more power than it already has. This decision is a rallying cry to elect those of us who will repeal this law and reform our Byzantine tax code."
