Is ObamaCare Constitutional???

January 31, 2011

Now the next chapter in the ObamaCare fiasco. 

Judge Rules Health Care Unconstitutional

This is the Federal Judge in Florida that was hearing the case brought by about half of the State AG’s.  Now it will go before the United States Supreme Court. 

The House of Representatives has voted to repeal the Law.  The fate of ObamaCare in the Legislative Branch now rests in the Senate, where Comrade Reid has vowed that repeal will not be voted on.  I suggest that the Republicans in the Senate should drag their feet on this.  Why?  You ask.  Because this case WILL be heard by the Supreme Court no matter what the Senate does.  If the Supreme Court rules that it IS unconstitutional, then ObamaCare, in its entirety, will be null and void.  Why? You ask.  Because either through stupidity, a mistake because it was rushed through the process, or a belief that it was so good that the Democrats did not want to have any chance of future changes by anyone; they left out the Severability Clause.  This means that if one small part of the law is unconstitutional, then the WHOLE law is unconstitutional.  Let the Supreme Court rule on this question.

If (and it is a big IF) the Supreme Court rules that it is not unconstitutional, then the Republicans can offer amendments, and force the Democrats to defend every aspect of the law.  If the Supreme Court rules that it is unconstitutional, then the Republicans do not need to accomplish anything to repeal the law.  The House Republicans need to start drafting a new Health Care Bill.

Finally, Rangel will have to answer questions!!!

July 22, 2010

Finally, the corrupt, lying, thief, Rangel has been charged with ethics violations.  Now we can only hope that the trial is fair.  I’m still not holding my breath.

And now that that investigation is finished they should have time for Dodd, Murtha, Pelosi, etc.

ObamaCare

March 25, 2010

When I wrote this I KNEW that it would not happen.  I was just hoping that the citizens of the United States of America, at least the ones that vote, would have insisted that the Politicians and everyone involved with enacting ObamaNONCare would have been REQUIRED to use it.

Now we get this.  They EXEMPT themselves from the greatest national health care system in the world.  Does this mean that they think that they can find a better deal.  If so, WHY vote for the bill?  Well, Democrats, what is the answer??

Please, leave your comments and contact your representatives.

Using Reconciliation

March 3, 2010

Should the Democrats use reconciliation in order to enact the ObamaCare nightmare?

It is looking like they might actually be considering this scenario.  In my opinion, they can go for it.  Here is a possibility that they might not have considered.

They pass ObamaCare….yeahhhh.  Then it gets to exist as it is for about 8 months.  Assuming that the reconciliation conference can iron out the differences between the House and Senate almost immediately (which I doubt).  Then we (the American public that does NOT want this government take over of our choices) get to vote in the 2010 elections.  I predict that many candidates will step forward and their whole campaign slogan will be, “I will vote to repeal ObamaCare”.  I predict that a large percentage of these candidates WILL get elected, and then ObamaCare will be repealed faster than President Obama can sign an order to close Gauntanamo (LOL).

So let me repeat, I hope that any elected official, that wants to commit political suicide for NO gain, does so.

Entering a Federal Building under False pretenses…..

February 1, 2010

This article from Big Government has gotten me thinking….

The article is called Possible O’Keefe Explanation: He was an ACORN ‘Secret Shopper’.  The part that really intrigues me is the brief description of a Law that was allegedly broken.  It states:

The relevant portion is 18USC § 1036 , which states:

Whoever, by any fraud or false pretense, enters or attempts to enter—
(1) any real property belonging in whole or in part to, or leased by, the
United States;(bold is mine)

shall be punished as provided in subsection (b) of this section.

(b) The punishment for an offense under subsection (a) of this section is—
(1) a fine under this title or imprisonment for not more than 10 years, or
both, if the offense is committed with the intent to commit a felony; or
(2) a fine under this title or imprisonment for not more than 6 months, or
both, in any other case.

Now follow along with my thinking.  If anyone enters, or attempts to enter, a Federal Building (i.e. the White House, the Senate Building, The House of Representatives, etc.) under false pretenses, or fraud, they are breaking this law

Does this mean, say for instance, if an elected official enters a federal building in order to help themselves and their friends, instead of the people they represent, that they are breaking the law.  Or, if someone were to lie in order to get elected, and then enters a federal building, where they break their “promises”, that they are breaking the law.  Or, if someone were to cheat on their taxes while being paid in one of these federal buildings, they are breaking this law as well.

I’m just askin’….

The AARP Scam

December 18, 2009

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP).  Another SCAM on the American PUBLIC, including, but not limited to,  RETIRED people.

If you are a member of AARP, ASK them where YOUR money goes? 

Here is a hint, NOT to help YOU.  AARP is endorsing the new Democratic Health Care plan(s) for cold, hard cash.  AARP does not even NEED you to be a member any longer.  AARP is making more money from selling insurance and our “GOVERNMENT” than they get from members.  By endorsing the Democrat Health Care plan(s), they will INCREASE their income from insurance.  This INCREASE in insurance premiums will come from YOU, because of reductions in Medicare and Medicaid.

If I have not been clear, let me try again.  AARP wants the “Governement” to reduce Medicare and Medicaid, so that, Seniors (retired persons) will find it necessary to purchase (spend more of their own money) insurance to cover the reductions.  AARP will only be only too happy to provide this insurance.

If you do not want to believe me, do your own research.  You can start here.

I have also called these plans the Democrat Health Care plan(s), because that is what they are.  They have not worked with anyone, but a select few (not even all the Democarts are involved) to draft these “plans”. 

Also, how can AARP endorse a plan without reading it??  How do I know they have not read it, you ask.  Because even the Senators and Representatives that are voting on the plans, have NOT even SEEN the plans, let alone read them.

Call your representatives, tell them to read the bills, AND explain them to YOU!!!!  What will it cost YOU if you do nothing????

Call me Skeptical

November 18, 2009

Let’s say that the House Health Bill that has passed is GREAT for America.  And let’s say that the estimate that has been made is perfect and that is what the Bill WILL cost.  Hoorah!!!!!  End of story!!  Congratulations are due to the Democrats and LONE Republican that voted FOR the Bill.

What if…??????

What if they are WRONG?  I know, I know, congress has NEVER been wrong in the past, but…..What if???

Here is another solution, as opposed to the one I wrote here.  Put an Amendment in the Bill that states:

IF the cost is greater than the accepted estimate, then the money to pay the excess cost first comes from the Representatives and Senators that voted FOR the Bill.  This can come from their salary, savings, investments, or estates, whether or not they are still in those positions.  NO money, above the accepted estimate, will come from any place other than the ones who voted FOR the Bill until they, or their estates, have $0 in assets.  Any money that they have donated or given away is also subject to seizure, this includes spouses money, heirs money, charity, loan payments, or political activities.

Let me know what you think.

P.S. Send a pink slip to your representatives here.

Obama gives Karzai Corruption Ultimatum

November 4, 2009

This article has me thinking about irony and a lack of character at the highest levels of government.

How can Obama, with a straight face, tell another leader to take care of the corruption in their government, when HE, “the anointed ONE”, cannot take care of the corruption in his own, including himself??

If you have not been paying attention, search ACORN, SEIU, Rangel, Dodd, Frank, Geithner, ethics investigation.  There are many more, but this should be a good start.

Health Care Reform Bill/Obamacare

November 3, 2009

If you have read any of the entries that I have done concerning the Health Care Reform Bills that have been passed around our government, like love notes in first grade (don’t let the teacher voters see), then you know how I feel about them.  This entry is a call to OUR representatives and senators who will vote on them.

Lets add an amendment to whatever bill (Pelosi, or Reid, or Baucus, or Obama favorite) gets voted on to set a time limit/cost limit.  If the bill is “scored”, by the CBO, to ONLY cost $800 BILLION (or $1 TRILLION, or $1.2 TRILLION, or whatever the number) then if the cost reaches that number BEFORE the time, say ten years, THEN the bill/law will EXPIRE.  If the “score” turns out to be high (I am extremely SKEPTICAL) then the bill/law will continue.

“They can’t do that”, you say!!!  I say that they CAN do this.

Think about the latest Bush TAX CUTS!!!!  They will expire at the end of this year, without OUR represenatives or senators doing anything.  Hey wait, that is what they are doing now!!!   NOTHING!!!!

Lets put a “phase out” on this legislation of five years.  If it works the American people/voters will have no problem reinstating it.

National Health Care

August 3, 2009

I have a question for ANYONE that feels that the “Government” should be invoved in Health Care in this country. 

I will ask it in a moment, but first I want to clarify some things.  Currently, the Obama administration, the Democrats in congress and the Democrats in the Senate are telling us that the public is clamoring for a solution, and that their solution (National Health Care) is the ONLY way to solve the problem.  They are ignoring the polls where some 80% of the public is happy with their coverage, or the FACT that the United States has the BEST medical care in the WORLD.

I am NOT saying that the system should not be improved.  I feel that there is too much inefficiency and costs are out of control.  But, I also feel that the involvement of the government WILL make the system worse and COST way too much.  Probably more than the $1 Trillion that has been thrown around.  If someone can show me ONE government program that has not gone over budget, I WILL show many that have.  For example, Social Security (projected to bankrupt in my lifetime), Medicare (I have NEVER heard anyone complain about this program…NOT), Medicaid (I have NEVER heard anyone complain about this program…NOT) and how about Cash-for-Clunkers (that budget, from the administration, did NOT last two weeks), there are many others.  So, now WE are supposed to trust them on this one.  I am SORRY, I cannot.

The question……

If the National Health Care system gets enacted, are you going to like the National Health Care system when Republicans get to make the decisions about coverage???

Please do not believe that the Democrats will forever run the White House, Congress, and the Senate.  And do not think that the coverages will NOT change with each change in party.  Let me make some observations.  Abortions – depends who makes the decision (Pro-life or Pro-choice).  Stem Cell therapies – depends who makes the decision (It was only 7 months ago that these were frowned upon).  Cancer treatments – maybe the patient does not have a good probability of survival, why spend the money?  I do not want a bureaucrat making those decisions for anyone in MY family!!

Will Chris Dodd (just diagnosed with Prostate Cancer) let ME decide what treatment he should get??  I will BET anyone, any amount of money that he will NOT.  I do not want HIM to make that decision for ME, or anyone in my family, either!!!!
