The Constitutionality of Obamacare

With the rush to shove national healthcare down our throats, the Obama administration as well as our liberal Congress never considered if what they were proposing was even constitutional. This is intriguing considering that Obama was a constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago.

But even Obama has no use for the Constitution, having said in the past that our national document was flawed because it didn’t deal with redistribution of wealth. So why would we think he cared if anything he proposed would be constitutional? He IS trying to redistribute the wealth of this country through the largest piece of legislation in American history.

But there are seven states who are sparking a 10th amendment rebellion hoping that they can stop this travesty of a bill from becoming law. The attorney generals from Michigan, South Carolina and Washington State are joining those in Alabama, Colorado, North Dakota and Texas in the fight against the passing of Obamacare.

At the same time they have instigated a probe into the Nebraska Deal given to Senator Ben Nelson as payment for his vote to support the bill. The deal, as you know, exempted Nebraska alone from having to pay for medicaid for his state and that the federal government would pick up the tab for it. Essentially, it’s not the federal government but the rest of the 49 states that would pay for it.

South Carolina’s AG, Henry McMaster argued:

“The Nelson provision is unusual in that there is not cut off date or phase out. Many provisions in federal law have a sunset date — say 2, 5, 10, or even 20 years– but this provision will continue in perpetuity. Quite obviously, this issue raises very serious concerns about equity, tax fairness as well as the constitutionality of having federal tax levies and mandates that treat one state differently from all the others.

I tend to think this will be the first fight of many trying to stop the step towards socialism as well as bankruptcy of the United States.
