Last week Bernard Kuhn jumped all over me for using 1,200 words in an attempt to explain the 2,700-page Affordable Health Care Act (aka Obamacare). He was so aggravated over my “long lecture on the U.S. Constitution to support my negative view of Obamacare,” he suggested that my opinions concerning this program should be censored from this newspaper.
I say the Constitution still gives me the right to state my opinion to the people, because the people vote. It gives me the same right to speak freely as it gives him the right to ignore or refute my statements.
I say we need to talk more about our Constitution and Bill of Rights, not less. We need to ask how President Obama can get away with saying he can add 30 million uninsured people to Obamacare and “it won’t cost a dime.” We should demand answers to know by what constitutional authority the federal government can force us to buy a product that we don’t want and be punished if we refuse.
And just begging for more answers. If Obamacare is such a magnificent health care program, why are Congress, government bureaucrats, unions and other Obama cronies being granted waivers and subsidies to opt out of Obamacare?
If Obamacare is good enough for us, why isn’t it good enough for them? Is it because they know it’s not affordable, or is it because they don’t want incompetent federal bureaucrats and the IRS to be in total control of their lives?
