If you don’t care about our constitution

This is a must read.

Read his conclusions and pass this on.

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 by the

government.

However, as scary as all of that is, 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 destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power

between the 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 direct violation of the specific

provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your

personal financial information, and the information of your employer,

physician, and hospital. All of this is a 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 control.

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, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you

can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

AFTER HAVING READ THIS, PLEASE FORWARD….

If you don’t care about our constitution, or your rights under it, just

do nothing.

WE MUST HOLD CONGRESS ACCOUNTABLE BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
