During the campaign, then candidate Obama promised health care reform stemming from open bi-partisan effort.
What we got was a closed door hidden agenda crammed down our throats.
Effectively, the bill is illegal. It is illegal because it is unconstitutional.
While (obviously) I am not a Constitutional lawyer, a cursory examination of the Constitution reveals, to me at least, that it violates Article 4 Section 4 and the Tenth Amendment.
Furthermore, it provides for incredible spending and false-accounting savings over the "life" of the bill. Unfortunately, it is open-ended and could literally bankrupt our country.
Obviously, it violates the common sense of several state's attorneys-general as they have already file lawsuits to protect their state's citizens from illegal federal mandates.
Now, let's get this clear: I am totally one-hundred percent in favor of health care reform. Greedy lawyers, greedy health care providers and greedy litigious patients have broken our current health care system.
We need reform.
We DO NOT need reform in this particular underhanded way.
