Coltons Point - People's Court Considers Insanity of Obamacare
The US Supreme Court is listening to an unprecedented 6 hours of debate over the Constitutionality of Obama's health care program. It is another face off of biblical proportions between David and Goliath with the all powerful US Attorney General representing President Obama and a group of State Attorney Generals representing state's rights and the people.
The classic confrontation between a strong central government versus a division of authority between states and the federal government.
Federalism versus decentralize government.
More loss of individual freedom versus the government's right to control you.
Boy did we ever need this Supreme Court action in the middle of a presidential election, as if we didn't have enough problems with the staggering economy, the confused foreign policy and the breakdown of morality in government, in most institutions, and in life.
So I say the Supreme Court should declare the whole thing unconstitutional on the grounds:
The name alone is just plain deceptive or stupid. This is the legal name of Obamacare, the health care reform program, "Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (H.R. 4872)".
Does that say anything about improving medical services, lowering medical costs, eliminating fraud, corruption, conflicts of interests, bribes or kickbacks rampant in the health care industry?
Before we adopt some smorgasbord of medical regulations that will increase the already too high cost of medical care and health insurance don't we need answers to a few questions?
1. Should the government be doing this?
2. Why do we stay sick if we can get well?
3. Will it bring down the spiraling cost of medical care and prescription drugs?
4. Will it help strengthen the body and make it self-sustaining?
5. Will it make the best use of medical knowledge learned throughout time?
6. Does it give incentives to make people well rather than keep them sick?
7. Does it eliminate the conflicts, fraud, corruption and abuse in the industry?
None of this is really addressed in the Obamacare or any other health care program of the government, proposed by the government or even being considered by the government.
Therefore the judgment of the People's Court should be Rejection of the program on the grounds of Insanity, and rejection of the arguments both for and against Obamacare as neither is relevant to the desperate wellness, health care and anti-corruption needs of the people of
The Supreme Court would do well to adopt a similar ruling.
