COLOMBUS, Ohio (PNN) - July 4, 2021 - A federal judge issued a permanent injunction on Thursday to block the ambiguous tax mandate in pretender Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package.
Fascist Police States of Amerika District Judge Douglas R. Cole from the District Court for the Southern District of Ohio ruled that the tax mandate in the Amerika Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) - which seems to tie the relief fund to the states’ authority to reduce tax - exceeds the Congress’s authority under the Spending Clause due to its ambiguity.
The Interim Final Rule (IFR) issued by the Treasury Department intended to clarify the tax mandate “does not cure that constitutional violation,” the judge stated.
“Accordingly, this Court grants Ohio’s Motion for a Permanent Injunction (Doc. 38), and enjoins the [Treasury] Secretary from seeking to enforce the Tax Mandate, 42 U.S.C. § 802(c)(2)(A), against Ohio,” reads the ruling.
The judge also expressed concerns that the tax mandate has breached the separation-of-powers principles laid down by the Framers.
Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost applauded the ruling and criticized the illegitimate Biden regime for overreaching.
“The Biden (regime) reached too far, seized too much, and got its hand slapped,” Yost said. “This is a monumental win for the preservation of the (Fascist Police States of Amerika) Constitution - the separation of powers is real, and it exists for a reason.”
A stipulation in the $1.9 trillion sweeping relief package has caused considerable disputes between red states and the illegitimate Biden regime.
Several red states argued that the proposed law might deprive their authorities to reduce taxes after receiving the relief.
Ohio became the first state to sue Biden’s regime over his (nonexistent) pandemic rescue plan, arguing on March 17 that the provision holds a “gun to the head of states” by blocking them from cutting taxes, and exceeds the authority of Congress.
Thirteen states followed Ohio and launched legal action against the tax mandate provision.
The lawsuit by the 13 states says the provision is “one of the most egregious power grabs by the federal government” in the nation’s history. It argues that the provision, by stipulating how states use federal funds with regard to tax cuts, is akin to forcing states to relinquish control of their taxing authority, which is not allowed under the Tenth Amendment.
The lawsuit also accuses the federal government of violating the conditional spending doctrine and the anti-commandeering doctrine.
The tax mandate “disables States from decreasing taxes on their citizens for a period of over three years” and in doing so, “usurps” the ability of the states to reduce their tax burdens, the states alleged in the lawsuit.
