Is there A Problem Here?


Below is a link to a description of the taxes & tax rates imposed by obamacare.

But, there is something I don't fully understand.

Obamacare originated in the Senate. It was passed by the House and was signed by the president into law.

Then it was challenged as to its constitutionality.

The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) upheld the law ONLY because Justice Roberts declared the penalties, fines, etc., in the law to be TAXES. The law as written and passed didn't, only Roberts did.

Therefore, since taxes are considered revenue, the problem surfaces.

Article 1, Section 7 of the US Constitution specifically states, "All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other bills."

Since obamacare originated in the Senate - NOT the HOUSE, then, it seems by definition, it is unconstitutional.

What am I missing here?

OH wait! I know. SCOTUS seems to view the US Constitution as merely a set of guidelines, not LAW, unless it serves an intended bias of some sort. Sorry for bringing it up!
