OBAMACARE AND THE CONSTITUTION: MORE THAN JUST A BAD IDEA

OBAMACARE AND THE CONSTITUTION: MORE THAN JUST A BAD IDEA

by Michael Peroutka

Many Americans are angry about the health care takeover that Congress and the Obama White House have tried to ram down their throats.

This is not surprising.

Many claim that the Obama scheme is a disaster and a very bad idea for America’s future.  They say it will bring much suffering and sickness and death for you and for your family.

We agree that it is a bad plan and an unconstitutional plan.

But these are not the same thing.

To say that something is a bad idea and to say it is unconstitutional is to say two different things.

Let me explain…

Suppose you invite me to your house for dinner and while I’m ther I notice that your window treatments are shabby and that your furniture does not match your wall colors.  So, the nexr day, while you’re not at home, I break into your house ad change the windows and the walls.  For the sake of argument, let’s say I actually make it look better than it did before I broke in.

I’m still guilty of the crime of breaking and entering and trespass.

Do you see that even if it was a good idea to change the décor, it was a crime because it was outside of my authority to do it.

Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and mark Levine and millions of others are screaming that the government takeover of the health care system is a very bad idea and they are right.

But even if it was a good idea, it would be a criminal scheme all the same.

Because the Constitution does not grant the federal government any authority to meddle in our health care, it wouldn’t matter even is their plan was a good one.

The operative clauses to look up here are Article One, Section Eight and the Tenth Amendment.  It will only take you about six minutes to read and understand that Obamacare is more than just a bad idea for American health care. It is a dangerous and tyrannical trespass into American homes and lives.

This is MAP for IOTC bringing you TAV.
