Who will join Ted Cruz in repealing ObamaCare?

Bryan FischerNow we know who the masters are: the black-robed dictators of the Supreme Court. And we know who the slaves and the serfs are: you and me.

The judicial tyrants of the Supreme Court, headed by chief oligarch John Roberts, have abandoned the Constitution, reason, and their oath of office by trashing the plain language of ObamaCare to reach an illogical, irrational, and judicially abominable result.

This 6-3 ruling is a juristic catastrophe. The chief justice justified his ruling by saying the words "established by the state" are "ambiguous." What is remotely ambiguous about the words "established by the state?"

The only way Roberts could reach this conclusion is by forsaking rationality, logic, and the plain meaning of words. We have now plunged headlong into the linguistic abyss of Alice in Wonderland, where words can mean anything you want them to mean. This means that we are now completely untethered from rationality altogether.

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less." "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things." "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master -- that's all." 

Well, now we know who the masters are: the black-robed dictators of the Supreme Court. And we now know who the slaves and the serfs are: you and me, the ordinary citizens of the United States of America.

We no longer have three branches of government, legislative, executive and judicial. We have three legislative branches. President Obama freely legislates from the Oval Office and the Supreme Court freely legislates from the bench. This is not the America the Founders bequeathed to us.

The question that now must be asked of every 2016 candidate for Congress, whether they are running for the House or the Senate: will you vote for the total repeal of every word of ObamaCare, yes or no? Or will you, as president, sign a bill that totally repeals every last word of ObamaCare?

We must get every presidential candidate on record on this question. TODAY.

If the American people are the losers in today's decision, today's big winner is Ted Cruz, who has campaigned relentlessly, publicly, insistently, and unapologetically on this very plank. Which presidential candidates will join him in pledging to lead the effort to do this? We need to know who they are today.

A president who is determined to sign a total repeal of ObamaCare must have a Congress that will put that bill on his desk. That's why we must press every candidate for the House and the Senate: will you vote for a bill that repeals every last word of ObamaCare, yes or no? We must get them on record TODAY.

In fact, I would suggest that the winnowing process for 2016 begins today. Candidates who publicly pledge to vote for or sign into law the repeal of ObamaCare will still be viable conservative candidates. Those who won't make that pledge ought to be toast.

The only way forward for America on healthcare is the path of the full, total, and absolute repeal of ObamaCare. Any candidate who will not pledge himself to that goal is not worth a conservative vote.
