. . . blindly following the orders of their “betters.”
Actually, let’s just imagine that the health care reform bills really are about improving health care, which they aren’t. Let’s imagine that the liberals in congress really have our best interests at heart, which they don’t. Let’s imagine that all the language in these bills is easily accessible to the public and a lawyer doesn’t need to be present to translate them from legal speak (that’d a be a big negative on both items).
Now that all that has been taken care of, here’s yet another serious problem with their plan: all of the health care bills in congress would force people to buy health insurance. What Constitutional authority does the gov’t have to make anyone buy anything, honestly? This crap about mandatory health insurance being covered under “promote the general welfare” isn’t going to fly. The gov’t is tasked with providing for the common defense and promoting the general welfare, not the other way ’round.
Quite honestly, it doesn’t matter what the Constitution says. The socialists and fascists we have in office believe that the Constitution is only a document which impedes their ambitions, anyway. We must continue to make phone calls, write letters, send e-mails, and participate in enough marches to make it clear that not even ACORN’s best efforts will be sufficient to preserve them a place at the tax payer’s trough.
