Once again, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the Obamacare tax subsidies under President Barack Obama’s arguably big government Affordable Care Act of 2010, in a ruling that, while allows it healthcare for millions of low-income Americans, is increasing premium costs and deductable for middle-class working families who now struggle to keep their coverage or find a new insurer.

But a number of veteran police officials and prosecutors believe that the Supreme Court is damaging its credibility with each passing day. Some believe that such a court is obviously open to using the U.S. Constitution to achieve the goals of politicians such as Obama, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren and other so-called closeted socialists.

The justices decision was 6-3, with Chief Justice John Roberts who admitted in the ruling that he didn’t want to dismantle ACA also called Obamacare. This ruling follows a number of others that have provided legal victories for the socialism-leaning Barack Obama in decisions that are considered more political than constitutional.

The Supreme Court has provided Obama with his most significant domestic victories. While most media outlets covered the Obamacare decision, few of those news outlets mentioned that on the same Thursday the court ruled in favor of Obama’s housing law which even liberals found an unexpected victory that saves what the administration uses to fight housing bias.

This decision, like those having to do with law enforcement and criminal justice, is nothing but one branch of government with nine unelected, black robed lawyers — who spend more time during confirmation hearings trying to fool the Senators and the American people — propping up a failed left-wing president who possesses a history of ties with communists and radical Democrats, according to a former NYPD detective and criminal justice professor, S. Johnson Brecker.

“Notice that when a Republican president appoints a judge who tries to sound conservative to the nation’s highest court, somehow they seem to move to the liberal-left side of the panel. I can’t remember one instance when a Democrat appointed a judge to the Supreme Court and that person moved to the right, which is a strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution,” added Iris Aquino, a former police undercover investigator. “Roberts is just that kind of conservative we see frequently: talk conservative but rule progressive,” she said.

“Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” Chief Justice Roberts wrote for the majority in the decision. “[N]ationwide availability of the credits is required to avoid the type of calamitous result that Congress plainly meant to avoid.” In other words, while the law was written a certain way, in order to keep it one must disregard the error in the wording to save a law that a majority of Americans oppose.

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia quipped in his heated dissent: “We really should start calling the law SCOTUScare,” referencing the court’s earlier decision upholding the constitutionality of the law. (SCOTUS is a acronym for t Supreme Court of the United States.) Conservative Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito also dissented.

Justice Scalia also pointed out,”And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold and assist its favorites. I dissent.”

“The American people are locked into a program that leaves their personal information vulnerable to spies, hackers and greedy foreign businesses. They’re locked into a program that will end up like Medicare and Medicaid — on the way to bankruptcy,” said former lawman, Chuck Paul Tibbins.
