The Obamacare Repeal Circus Continues
Well, I guess the answer to the question I put forth in my January 16, 2017 column has been answered over the past seven months: Obamacare: how badly will congress screw up fixing that disaster?
That would be a Republican controlled House and Senate. Remember how Republicans begged for the Senate so they WOULD repeal Obamacare? Well, the American people gave them the Senate and in January a Republican president and still after all these years, the GOP establishment (Paul Ryan, Mitch the banker’s bitch McConnell and their ilk) who hate conservatives have managed to make a grand mess they can’t seem to crawl out of.
“Republicans hammered Democrats seven and a-half years ago for larding Obamacare with state-specific payoffs and sweeteners to secure the last few votes for passage. Who can forget the “Cornhusker Kickback,” which funneled $45 million to Nebraska to nail the support of former Sen. Ben Nelson? But the revised Senate Obamacare repeal bill shows Republicans engaged in the same pattern of horse trading as they try to win 50 ayes to advance an unpopular bill.”
Anyone who has done the research and believes the U.S. Constitution is the law of the land fully understands Obamacare IS unconstitutional in a dozen ways from Sunday. Violation of equal protection, forcing Americans to purchase a product, ignoring Supreme Court decisions clearly stating Congress has no authority to legislate medical treatment in this country, the fact that the bill originated (thanks to now gone CORRUPT CROOK, Sen. Harry Reid) in the Senate in violation of Art. 1, Sec. 7 of the U.S. Constitution and more. Stealing the fruits of one’s labor to give to someone else for whatever reason (please save the hate mail) is morally wrong, but that’s exactly what the taxes subsidizing Obamacare recipients is all about.
“The catalogue of means and actions which might be imposed upon an employer in any business, tending to the satisfaction and comfort of his employees, seems endless. Provision for free medical assistance, nursing, clothing, food, housing, and education of children, and a hundred other matters might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. Can it fairly be said that the power of Congress to regulate interstate commerce extends to the prescription of any or all of these things? It is not apparent that they are really and essentially related solely to the social welfare of the worker and therefore remote from any regulation of commerce as such? We think the answer is plain. These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power”. – Railroad Retirement Board v. Alton Railroad Co, 295 U.S. 330, 55 S. Ct. 758 1935)
What the Senate’s 3.8% surtax means for American taxpayers – Taxing those who work hard and have been successful to pay for an unconstitutional ‘law’ is NOT what this country was founded on; quite the contrary. Let’s Talk About Obamacare Subsidies
In any event, Obamacare has been a massive failure from the get-go which was the plan all along. A single payer system has always been the ultimate nightmare ‘goal’. Obamacare has caused tremendous suffering and hardship for tens of millions of Americans and it continues while the incompetent fools who ‘control’ Congress – you know – those same incumbents Americans keep reelecting every two years – can’t find their backsides.

“I miss the old days, when Republicans stood for repealing Obamacare. Republicans across the country and every member of my caucus campaigned on repeal – often declaring they would tear out Obamacare “root and branch!” What happened?
“Now too many Republicans are falling all over themselves to stuff hundreds of billions of taxpayers’ dollars into a bill that doesn’t repeal Obamacare and feeds Big Insurance a huge bailout. Obamacare regulations? Still here. Taxes? Many still in place, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars. Insurance company bailouts? Those, too.”
NO WHERE and I mean NO WHERE in Art. 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution does it give Congress ANY authority to steal from you to give bail outs to ANY private corporation or………………
