The Obama Administration’s political opponents and adversaries would like nothing more than what they call a nightmare “ObamaCare” to just go away. Of course, that’s not likely to happen unless the Supreme Court decides that the law is unconstitutional. As the Obama Administration believes they have case law behind them using a piece of “The Commerce Clause” to justify the mandatory purchase of health insurance Florida by each citizen.
Most strict constitutional lawyers disagree, although those on the left side of the political spectrum don’t seem to want to bring up the issue, whereas those who are against ObamaCare Florida do. There was an interesting article circulating virally over the weekend from AmeriPac – American Political Action Committee titled “Put ObamaCare Out of Its Misery! – One Step Closer to Victory: Florida Judges Skewer Healthcare Bill” which stated;
“Judges in the 111th District Court in Florida are gearing up to declare ObamaCare unconstitutional. Chief Judge Joel Dubina said, “I can’t find any case like this. If we uphold this, are there any limits” on the power of the federal government? The 111th Circuit Court of Appeals (group of 26 states) representing 50% of the U.S. population argued that ObamaCare Florida individual mandate is unconstitutional because gives the federal government limitless power to make Americans do whatever it wants.”
In considering all this I have a question; does ObamaCare Florida need an end of life counseling session? As you know “end of life counseling” is indeed part of the ObamaCare Law. Now, after making everyone purchase healthcare insurance, including small businesses, and large corporations, and then having issued waivers to about 150 large corporations over ObamaCare it seems rather unfair to have the whole thing disappear, after everyone has been compliant.
However, if this law is deemed unconstitutional prior to the re-election of President Obama (assuming he will be re-elected), it could very well become a sideshow for comedians, and prevent him from getting reelected. In fact his political opponents are hoping so. Personally, I don’t feel the government should tell me that I have to buy anything, and I am pretty certain it is unconstitutional, no matter what type of finagling or bizarre interpretation of the law the Supreme Court throws back.Click this link here!
It would appear to me if ObamaCare Florida is deemed fair and within the spirit of the Constitution, then I’d say the Supreme Court has been corrupted, made itself irrelevant, and we are no longer a nation with a Constitution. Although I am not a strict constitutionalism, we do have laws in this country, and we can’t go around making arbitrary mandates without first changing the law. After all, that’s how it is supposed to work and President Obama did once teach a side class at the University on Constitutional Law, so he cannot say he didn’t know.
First you change the constitution, prior to mandating anything that is not constitutional. The Democrats and Obama Administration did not do that, rather our elected representatives passed a bill they never read, and President Obama signed it into law before anyone knew what they were doing. President Obama’s political opponents call that unacceptable. And personally I concur. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
