ObamaCare: Call It What It Is

 

Let’s call this what it really is: Re-distribution of health.

In effect, that’s the latest message coming from the White House as a desperate President Barack Obama grasps at straws to push his health care agenda down our throats once and for all. And it looks like he might just have the support he needs now.

President “Opaque” has held a series of not-so-secret closed-door meetings in an attempt to shore up support for a combined healthcare bill that he can sign into law (presumably after we have all had a chance to read the final bill for 72 hours, of course. Just like he promised in his campaign speeches. Oh wait. A year has gone by and he hasn’t actually done that yet, has he?)

In a private meeting with union officials yesterday, Obama gave them a sweetheart deal: Union members will be exempting Union shops from having to pay the 40% tax penalty for so-called “Cadillac Health Plans.”

Wake up, folks! That poking sensation you felt on your backside was NOT your dog asking to go for a walk.  Your President is informing you:  If you’re employed by a business that is NOT run by Union thugs, your business will have to pay an additional 40% penalty for treating you so well.  For example: If your company spends $1,000,000 per year on health insurance for its employees, they will now be taxed an additional $400,000 under Obama’s healthcare plan. But if you’re a union shop? “Fuhgettaboudit!”

In short, the very healthcare program he’s putting in place to provide healthcare for all (in theory), would in fact, cause many employers to DROP their insurance because they can’t afford the penalty. The other option would be to REDUCE the level of coverage they provide for you  until it has been weakened enough to meet Obama’s approval.

Let’s call this what it really is, folks: “Re-distribution of HEALTH.”  As true a case of taxation without representation as you will ever find.

Now is the time to continue your calls, e-mails and faxes to your elected officials demanding they not pass this bill. Let them know they will be held accountable.  Do NOT rest now!

Mmm-Mmm-Mmm… Barack Hussein Obama…

    Regarding Obama’s Constitution-ignoring, socialist agenda, I hope that Constitution-defending patriots start pointing out the following MAJOR constitutional problem with Obamacare. Given that the federal Constitution is silent about public healthcare, the 10th A. automatically reserves government power to regulate and lay taxes for healthcare to the states, not the Oval Office and Congress.

    In fact, the USSC has already decided that Congress has no business directly regulating the medical practice.

    “Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously beyond the power of Congress.” –Linder v. United States, 1925. http://supreme.justia.com/us/268/5/case.html

    Also note that Chief Justice Marshall had established the case precedent that Congress cannot use state power issues to justify federal taxes.

    “Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States.” –Chief Justice Marshall, GIBBONS V. OGDEN, 1824. http://supreme.justia.com/us/22/1/case.html

    So not only is Obamacare constitutionally unauthorized, but corrupt Congress never had the power to lay taxes to fund Obamacare.

    And the reason that flakes like Obama, Reid and Pelosi are pushing unconstitutional Obamacare is this. Constitution-ignoring socialist FDR had managed to nominate 8 of 9 justices by the early 1940s. And these likewise constitution-ignoring justices wrongly ignored state sovereignty-related statutes like Article V and the 10th A. when they tested the limits of Congress’s power in relevant cases. Instead, the justices perverted the founders intentions for the general welfare clause and the commerce clause to allow Congress to overstep its constitutional limits.

    What a mess! :^(

    The bottom line is that voters have a big mess to clean up in DC in 2010.

      Indeed it is a mess. If there’s so much of this bill that is in violation of the Constitution, I wonder why then, hasn’t someone on the Republican side if the aisle brought this up?

      I think (as you and I have exchanged thoughts on this in an earlier topic) there’s enough of this bill that violates (or would negate) the Constitution that the precendents you mention should be used to halt further progress on the bill until the Supreme Court has a chance to rule on the Constitutional issues. Perhaps the strategy is to let the bill pass, THEN challenge it Constitutionally. That would then force the Dems to start from scratch and, by then, we will have, hopefully, taken back at least one of the two houses of Congress in the mid-terms.

      If the Republicans can’t find their testicles and stand up against this outrage by Obama, then we can’t even count on them to protect our interests. If that is the case, it only serves to validate Thomas Jefferson when he wrote: “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”

      By the way, Jefferson also noted that “Every generation needs a new revolution.” The question is, “Is that what Obama thinks he’s doing?”

      A new revolution may be necessary, but it must ONLY be done to shore up the Constitution. Not tear it down in order to make way for more tyranny. It’s not only our right, but it’s our sacred obligation.
