Does mandating health care violate constitution
Obamacare alone is a never-ending bonanza of lawlessness, so I’m limiting myself to five entries there.In any case, herewith is my best stab at the list of President Obama’s top ten constitutional violations of the year (including actions taken in 2014 whose effects continued into 2015): 1.This drives up the costs and makes the so-called Affordable Care Act unaffordable for many.Obamacare will control the choices of physicians by the central control of “evidence based medicine.” Patients will lose their privacy and be vulnerable to identity theft. First our state legislators must read the Constitution, including Article VI, Clause 3, “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.” They then must adhere to the oath they took to uphold the Constitution, not the Supreme Court’s faulty interpretation of the Constitution.(Public Affairs, 2013), President Barack Obama, accomplished what Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, LBJ, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton failed to accomplish - a law that reformed how Americans are insured to pay for medical services.Blackman recently addressed the Philadelphia chapter of the Federalist Society about the constitutionality of the ACA, commonly referred to as Obamacare.It was also passed along along a strict party line vote - no Republicans voted for the bill." Blackman says that the Supreme Court addressed the mandate issue in 2012.
He stressed that the individual mandate, so abhorrent to conservatives now, was first advanced by some Republicans as an alternative to Hillarycare in the early 1990s.
s we approach the final year of Barack Obama’s presidency, there isn’t much that the president can do to change people’s opinion of him, for better or worse.
His legacy, barring some extraordinary occurrence — including an extraterrestrial one, as the holiday advertising blitz for the new movie reminds us — is baked into history.
Setting aside legislation and executive action (on which more imminently), we note that one of President Obama’s chief accomplishments has been to return the Constitution to a central place in our public discourse.
Unfortunately, the president fomented this upswing in civic interest not by talking up federalism or the separation of powers but by blatantly violating the strictures of our founding document.
