I don’t know how any sane American cannot come to the conclusion that Barack Obama’s health care plan is 100 percent unconstitutional. Where in the Constitution is the federal government given the authority to force Americans to buy health insurance? Answer: nowhere. The same can be said about forcing Americans to participate in a retirement plan, a.k.a. Social Security. The Constitution specifically spells out the powers of the federal government in no uncertain terms and health care isn’t mentioned anywhere.
I guess many people don’t realize it — or, more likely, they just don’t care — that when the government gives them something, then they are taking from someone else. It’s really no different than if I were to steal someone’s property, then turn around and donate that stolen property to a charitable cause. The people on the receiving end of my charitable “donation” might really appreciate it and need it, but what right do I have to take someone else’s property that doesn’t belong to me?
The health care plan is no different. It must be paid for by someone because nothing in life is free. Someone always pays. And how will the health care plan be paid for? By “creating jobs” and hiring more federal employees to implement it. And who will pay their salaries? We will, through higer taxes, more unconstitutional money-printing/inflation, or both. Big government just keeps getting bigger at our expense.
Thanks, Barack Obama, for all the “hope and change.”
