Obamacare Authoritarian and Unconstitutional
Mark J. Fitzgibbons at American Thinker gets to the point:
In his September 9 address to Congress and the nation on health insurance, President Obama said that under his plan, individuals will be required to carry basic health insurance.
There is no clause in Article I of the Constitution authorizing Congress to craft legislation forcing individuals to purchase insurance.
Fitzgibbons concludes, "Mr. Obama's proposal not only deprives us of a freedom to use our money as we best deem fit, and is therefore authoritarian, but it is unconstitutional as well."
Barack Obama may not be aware of this tragic inconsistency. Or he may not care.
In any case, those who care about Constitutional government and the preservation of liberty upon this planet cannot afford to let this abuse stand.
