Health Care Stays!

Obama's health care bill that by itself isn't enough to fully fix the health care in the U.S, but an amazing big jump forward. Now  many Republicans want to destroy the bill that helps people who have a pre-existing condition get health care insurance. The Health care bill that helps people not big insurance companies. Repealing the health care bill would add to the deficit over 100 billion in the first 10 years alone. The Republicans would like to take coverage from people who are sic and increase the deficit at the same time. Yet they blame Obama for helping people and lowering the deficit. Some of these Republicans are hypocrites. The bill to destroy the health care bill was stooped in the democratic controlled senate, and for now the health care bill is staying. But how long will the Republicans milk this. Maybe all the way to the white house, but even if Obama loses his presidency the senate unless the Republicans gain 13 seats which would be historic and impossible none the less the health care bill will stay.

  1. A judge in Florida just declared the health care law known as “Obamacare” unconstitutional, ruling it void in its entirety. Judge Vinson rightly declared the health care law’s individual mandate unconstitutional, since the inactivity of not buying health insurance is not an “economic activity” that Congress has the power to regulate under the Interstate Commerce Clause. (Under the Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Morrison (2000), which I helped litigate, only “economic activity” can be regulated under the Commerce Clause, with the possible exception of those non-economic activities that harm instrumentalities of interstate commerce or cross state lines.)

    Judge Vinson also rightly declared the law as a whole unconstitutional. The health care law lacks a severability clause. So if a major provision like the individual mandate is unconstitutional — as it indeed was — then the whole law must be struck down.

  2. Blah, blah, blah ... and there's been a dozen courts that have ruled it is constitutional so don't go get all righteous on us by declaring that it is indeed unconstitutional. That matter will ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court. Until then it is still the law of the land (just in case you didn't understand that, it means it is still considered to be constitutional).
