health care reform

Democrats in the Senate Finance Committee squashed an amendment by Senator Jim Bunning that would have required Baucus’ ObamaCare bill to be posted on the Internet – for all Americans to read – for 72 hours prior to the Committee voting on it.

Bunning’s amendment also called for requiring the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office’s tally of how much Baucus’ ObamaCare will cost the American people and what the real impact will be on health costs to be released before it was voted on.

Senator Max Baucus’ health care reform plan calls for new government mandates, higher taxes, increased spending and government-dictated, rationed health care.

Senator Lindsay Graham’s explanation of what is going on: “[T]he Baucus bill… literally changes everyday… we’re making this up as we go… they’re trying to buy votes… the vision here is to pass something… they don’t give a damn what it is and nobody understands what they’re doing.”

Senator Hatch, while calling for a “bi-partisan solution” stated
“Everything is geared to try to get us to a single payer system… if they can’t do it automatically… they’ll do it in increments… a one size fits all health care system right out of Washington.”

There is nothing in the Constitution that gives Congress the right to take over the health-care system. The only reform that is legal, is for the government to obey the Constitution and get completely out of the health care business.

The government has no legal or moral right to be involved in healthcare.

The government has no legal or moral right to be involved in banking.

The government has no legal or moral right to be involved in the automobile business.

The government has no legal or moral right to be involved in education.

The government has no legal or moral right to be involved in funding “community organizers”

And the government has no legal or moral right to be involved in redistributing wealth.

  1. Wells sure… in the same way that the federal government has no legal or moral right to be involved in social security, or the FDIC, or the criminalization of drugs, or inspecting food, or approving prescription drugs, or running prisons, or protecting the environment, or sending American troops into hostile zones without Congressional war authority, or, or, or……..

    The point is, if one is prepared to constrain the role of the federal government to its Constitutionally enumerated powers — to “legal and morally” justified actions — we would eliminate 98% of the government — and that is a paradigm which would be rejected by the vast majority of Americans.

    This is 2009. Not 1789.
