> The Truth About the Health Care Bills -
> Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney
> 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
> by the government.
> However, as scary as all of that is, 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.
> This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the
> Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct
> violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the
> Constitution information, your personal financial information, and
> the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of
> this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You
> can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been
> legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments
> may provide...
> If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private
> insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices
> Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you.
> It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to
> avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment.
> However, that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the
> law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it
> is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process
> of law.
> So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so
> much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are
> effectively nullified by this law. It doesn't stop there though.
> The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution,
> of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage
> others retained by the people;
> The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United
> States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are
> preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the
> provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people
> nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many
> areas that once were theirs to control.
> I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you
> get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power
> and limiting rights... Article 6 of the Constitution requires the
> members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation
> to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not
> be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without
> feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for
> it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.
> For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they
> consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights.
> There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

> just do nothing.
