The People's Republic of America
Today marks a very tragic day in the history of the United States: our government has just proven itself to be a tyrannical giant rather than a representative democracy. The US government has just outright completely violated the Constitution, and all of the founding fathers are rolling over in their graves.
The Obama Care Health Plan has been passed with a 219-212 House vote. Aren’t bills supposed to be passed with a 2/3 vote from both houses rather than a simple majority? And one other thing: UNDER WHAT ARTICLE OF THE CONSTITUTION DOES THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAVE THE ABILITY TO REGULATE HEALTH CARE?!?
The only things that the federal government can constitutionally regulate are interstate commerce and taxes. In the original mindset of the founding fathers, this means that the government is supposed to ensure that trade between states stays regular. An example of an irregularity would be if Maine decided that Kansas could no longer buy its goods. In this case, the federal government would have to restore regular interstate trade.
To regulate anything except for interstate commerce would be UNCONSTITUTIONAL on the federal government’s behalf.
Hopefully America will retaliate and move to repeal the Obama Care Plan before it has any major impact on our already dying country. Obama has been the president for a little over a year now, and he’s done a surprisingly great job at running our country into the ground so far. I don’t even want to guess at what he’s going to do next.
