This was sent to me by a friend.  Unfortunately it was originally posted in a blog on August 19th of 2009.  It most certainly should have been circulated long before now but it gives the high lights of what is in the Obama health 'care' reform.... and that word should be spelled "RE-FORM" as in totally new configuration and it is not a good one.

Media Matters and Democratic Underground have tried to smear this man for speaking the truth.  The 'progressive' bloggers never cease to amaze me with their stupidity and ad hominem attacks.  One quick way to assess validity of a statement is to see the vocabulary of the attack.  If they use potty language, you can almost rest assured that what they attack bears the truth because they can not refute the truth that is factual.... so they have to attack using potty mouths.

Michael Connolly has been able to research and delineate the dangers in this bill far better than my fumbling attempts, so I'm going to put his post here.  The link is to the whole essay but I'm including his summary below.

The Truth About the Health Care Bills

Well, I have done it! 

 I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: 

The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 

2009.  I studied it with particular emphasis from my area 

of expertise, constitutional law.  I was 

frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being 

discussed might be unconstitutional.  What I found was 

far worse than what I had heard or expected. 


To begin with, much of what 

has been said about the law and its implicatins is in fact 

true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. 

 The law does provide for 

rationingof health care, 

particularly where senior citizens and other 

classes of citizens are involved, free health care

for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the 

medical profession. 
 The Bill will also 

eventually force private insurance companies out of 

business, and put everyone into a government run system. 

 All decisions about personal health care will 

ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will 

not be health care professionals.  Hospital 

admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary 

medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government. 

 However, as scary as all of 

that is, it just scratches the surface.  In fact, I have 

concluded that this legislation really has no intention of 

providing affordable health care choices.  Instead it is a 

convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the 

Executive Branch of government that has ever 

occurred, or even been contemplated.  If this law or a 

similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution 

of the United States will effectively have been 

 The first thing to go will 

be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the 

Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of 

the U.S. Government.  The Congress will be transferring to 

the Obama Administration authority in a number of different 

areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses 

they own. 

The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with!  I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any 

authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care. 

This legislation also 

provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama 

administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct 

violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitutioninformation, your personal financial information, and the 

information of your employer, physician, and hospital.  All 

of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures.  You can also forget about the right to privacy.  That will have been legislated into oblivion 

regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may 


If you decide not to have 

healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is 

not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator 

appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. 

 It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process 

clause of the 5th Amendment.  However , that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, 

It is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law. So, there are three of 

those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the 

original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are 

effectively nullified by this law.   It doesn't stop there though.

The 9th 

Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the 

Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment 

states: The powers not delegated 

to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it 

to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to 

the people.  Under the provisions of this piece of 

Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are 

going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that 

once were theirs to control. 
 I could write many more 

pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. 

 This is not about health care; it is about seizing power 

and limiting rights.  

Article 6 of the Constitution

requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by 

oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a 

member of Congress I would not be able to vote for 

this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was 

violating that sacred oath or affirmation.  If I voted for 

it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me 

 For those who might doubt 

the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the 

source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There 

you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.
