Does ObamaCare?

Depends upon what you mean by “care”, here.

Wolf here.

I ran across an interesting article by retired constitutional attorney Michael Connelly, who writes:

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled.

However, as scary as all of that it, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people and the businesses they own. The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with. I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

I hope all the mulletheads who voted in both the lefty congressional majority and Obama, the traitor and enemy of the state in POTUS’ clothing, read and enjoy reading herein what they are responsible for.

    Ah, but they argue that it is an out of date document that does not address modern concerns or problems and must therefore be consigned to various dustbins as recycleable waste.

    We have the same problem here, our “unwritten” constitution, underpinned by Magna Carta (1216) has been trashed by this shower of Labour Party Chapmpagne Socialists and conartists who now claim that only they can save us from the ecnomic collapse they have brought us to …

    Welcome to socialism.

    Gray Monk,

    Thirteen states have joined together in one legal action against the bill, and Virginia has launched its own.

    I have the distinct feeling that there will be a battle royale fought before the Supreme Court over this one, and if The Court does its job, which means ruling on the constitutionality of the wayward legislation, the entire Obama-care quagmire should be thrown right back in the faces of the traitors who voted it in.

    Perhaps it might end up being repealed.

    Then again, perhaps not.

    Personally, given that I spent nearer 4 than 3 decades serving my country, I would hope that it wasn’t in vain; Had anyone told me that I was putting my hind quarters on the line to preserve a soon-to-be marxist country, I might have reconsidered my career options.

    I know a number of others, including co-Hard Astarboard contributor Chuck, with whom I served for a time, who feel exactly the same as I do.

    For now, I have my fingers crossed.
