Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

One of the most parroted comments from the Regime’s die-hard supporters is that Obamatax is “the law of the land,” a statement which simply isn’t true. The Supreme Court not only struck down the concept that Congress could impose healthcare under the Commerce Clause, but also strongly indicated that the individual mandate will likely be overturned as a penalty, not  a tax, when the issue reaches the Supreme Court in 2015. For millions of Americans and businesses, it was obvious to that the Supreme Court was effectively striking down the Obamatax, or at least sending a very strong message that the Regime had better work with Congress to fix Obamatax, or else. That “else” is very obvious to the states which have no interest in helping the Regime set up exchanges or burdening business with a pointless exercise which is not going to survive judicial scrutiny from  a Court which tried to send a message. But for people to continue to insist that Obamatax is “the law of the land,” as a MWDN editorial has again stated, is to misrepresent the effective status of a bad law opposed by 60% of Americans, all of whom will have a chance to vote for repeal next November.
