Dem run Congress to American public: We Own You

Washington Examiner reports on the demo proposed health care bill.

"Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius would be awarded unprecedented new powers under the proposal, including the authority to decide what medical care should be covered by insurers as well as the terms and conditions of coverage and who should receive it...The HHS secretary would also have the power to decide where abortion is allowed under a government-run plan."

The end result would be the federal government having direct control over the insurance market as opposed to the current system where the states have the discretionary power to regulate the market. The American public made it perfectly clear that a universal health care system was not to be tolerated, and now the demos have the audacity to implement this backdoor policy in attempts to control the insurance market.

The articles continues with: "Critics of the bill said this was an example of how the new bill could empower HHS to alter health care delivery, but Democrats argue they would rather have the government making these decisions." THEY ARE THE GOVERNMENT. Even if Congress was doing an amazing job, it would still be absurd to allow this much government intervention.

Gallup polls show Congress approvals at a mere 21%. Not a stellar rating there, Nancy. Additionally, their is a higher percentage of Americans disapproving the health care bill, also according to Gallup.

Demos attempts to force this issue down the throats of Americans will result in a "throw the bums out" GOTV effort come election time. Keep it up and you won't be there for long.


  1. Constitution-defending patriots need to start pointing out the following regarding Obamacare. The Founders themselves "voted" against federal healthcare when they ratified the Constitution.

    More specifically, given that the Constitution is silent about public healthcare, the 10th A. automatically reserves government power to regulate healthcare to the states, not the Oval Office and Congress.

    In fact, the USSC has already officially decided that Congress has no business sticking its big nose into the medical practice.

    “Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously beyond the power of Congress.” –Linder v. United States, 1925.

    What's going on is this. People like Sebelius are unthinkingly justifying Obamacare with FDR's perversions of the general welfare and commerce clauses, Article I, Section 8, Clauses 1 and 3 respectively. These perversions became official when eight outcome-driven justices nominated by pro-big federal government FDR "delegated" more powers to Congress, giving the green light to New Deal legislation based on constitutionally nonexistent federal government powers. But by doing so, the corrupt USSC wrongly bypassed the unique, Article V power of the states to amend the Constitution to delegate more powers to Congress.

    The bottom line is that the Congressmen who vote yes on Obamacare legislation will make a handy list of lawmakers who need to be charged with treason for blatantly violating their oaths to defend the Constitution.
