Sen. Akaka: "Not Aware" of Constitutional Authority to Force Purchase of Health Insurance
Road to Hell Paved With Good Intentions: "When CNSNews.com asked whether the Constitution gives Congress the authority to make Americans buy health insurance, Sen. Akaka said: "I’m not aware of that, let me put it that way. But what we’re trying to do is to provide for people who have needs and that’s where the accessibility comes in, and one of the goals that we’re trying to present here is to make it accessible."
Speaking of "good intentions," what with tax penalities, possible jail time, and the oppression of Washington-centric governance -- all for choosing individual freedom over state control -- those "good intentions" may not be so good after all.
But that's alright: The road to Hell is often paved with bad intentions too.
