Dr. Weeks’ Comment: This new health care bill, affordability in health care has a very telling declared purpose which people never refer to. It sends up red flags which are ignored.
What is the full and true purpose of the bill? (appreciating the truth in advertising aspect of a democracy) ?
It is (emphasis is mine):
“A Bill to Provide Affordable, Quality Health care for all Americans and to Reduce the growth in Health Care Spending, AND FOR OTHER PURPOSES.”
Don’t you wonder what “other purposes” are crafted in this bill?
So read on and today more than ever, BUYER BEWARE.
Snopes says it is correctly attributed…..snopes.com: Michael Connelly on the Constitutionality of Health …
My guess is that if it passes it will go to the Supreme Court to check the constitutionality…….
Someone did read the entire Bill 3200
Subject: Someone did read the entire Bill 3200
From Michael Connelly – 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 be voided.
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 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
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. Here is a link to the Constitution:

There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken
