I have so few words to express the depth of my disgust with the unconstitutional path and passing of Obamacare and the corruption in Congress. So let me just tell you about the storm coming to Washington.
The majority of Americans have voiced ad nauseam their grave concerns with and rejection of Washington's health care bills. Like a host of other commentators, I have written at least a dozen syndicated articles this past year addressing sound objections. And like you, I've joined rallies, signed petitions and passed along a plethora of reasonable nonpartisan negative critiques of Obamacare. But at every turn, Washington has ignored us and demonized our opposition.
Obamacare violates commerce laws by forcing Americans to purchase a product and annihilates the federal government's 10th Amendment restrictions over U.S. states and citizens, which is why a whopping two-thirds of states across the nation already are legally battling over whether federal law can trump state laws via Obamacare.
Why can't Washington see that the main problem with Obamacare is not its costs, coverage or faulty projected savings, but that the federal government should not be involved in the health care business at all?! According to the Constitution, such a matter should be left to the free market, citizens, local communities and states.
But that's history now. One-sixth of our economy will be controlled by the federal government, and we're supposed to blindly accept that's not a socialistic tendency. The fact is that despite the Congressional Budget Office's projected savings, Obamacare will morph and inflate (along with its costs) in the years to come. Has any government program not done so? As President Barack Obama admitted to Fox's Bret Baier last week, "Yes, it's one-sixth of the economy, but we're not transforming one-sixth of the economy all in one fell swoop." There are the key words: "all in one fell swoop."
Mark my words: The terms in this health care bill eventually will be so far-reaching that it will become a major foundation for a fundamentally different America, from which will sprout many tentacles that will choke out other freedoms. This is not just a health care bill; it's a metastasizing tool and weapon for all forms of federal intrusion and takeover. In areas that the feds can't cover or control presently, absence and subtlety in the bill's language will provide the springboard for their future rule.
