Subject: A power grab!
Please take a few minutes and look at this. When finished, call you Representative and both Senators and let them know how you feel about giving away most of your rights. Then forward this to as many people as you can with the same instructions.
Someone did read the entire House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009.
From Michael Connelly Footnote Retired attorney,
Constitutional Law Instructor, Carrollton, Texas.
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.
However, as scary as all of that it, 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
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 information, your personal financial information, and the
information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a direct violation of the
specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution 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
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.
