    It's too late to stop this legislation, but here is a read of what the Health care legislation is all about, and it's not good. Hopefully we can get it abolished after the new generation takes office.


    According to Snopes, the following is correctly
    attributed to Michael Connelly, Retired Attorney.


    A question many of us are asking. Is this healthcare thing constitutional?
    A retired Constitutional lawyer has read the entire proposed healthcare bill. Read his conclusions. This is stunning!
    The Truth About the Health Care Bill
    - Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

    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 implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats
    and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of 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 destroyed.

    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 Constitution information, 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 provide.

    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 accountable.

    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.

    God forbid this gets put into law , it will take more than an Act of Congress to remove it.

    And the Republicans are backing off repealing this turd now.

    If they can't abide by the wishes of the voters either, then it's time to fire them too when the next election comes up.

    I'm not saying your post isn't true or false, BUT I would never use Snopes as a reliable and truthful source. It seems it's run by a couple of Progressive Dems who put on Snopes what they wish to that confirms their point of view.
