Re: Obamacare Unconstitutional?Dec 27th, 2010
not sure if it is used in the right form, but anyways, if everyone is inssured it makes it less of a burden on the rest.......
If you follow the money trail someone picks up the tab for those who cannot pay , also for those that mortgage thier homes to pay off thier medical bill and can't make it lose thier homes , again another burden on banks and so on.
People need to stop believing movies like "John Q" and so on. The American system isn't without its issues, but people are not being denied life saving operations, or turned away from ER's. That's illegal.
But the way the constitution is set up , from my understanding, is it is based alot on personal freedom. Having to be imposed to get inssurance is imposing on that freedom , actually if you look further seems taxes might be added to that list.
The constitution was based imo on ideology of the times pre 1800's , today's American reality seems to be different , very different in need than it was then.
Americans fear the word Socialism...........i say that loosely
The argument that people are concerned about being forced to have a program because
their country is different in the way it thinks.
The problem is a lot of Americans don't think at all.
They are stampeded by clever manipulating self interests, or the churches that keep
spouting off about freedoms they will lose. Many of those churches are in league with the
special interest groups.
Special interests include those in the Insurance, medical fields and
the very rich who use behind the scenes influence to manipulate government policy and the
Taking something to the US Courts is little more than a joke at best. I do understand
how the court system works and its first weakness is that it is presided over by elected
judges who are also manipulated by special interests. Someday when there is a judicial
system that operates on the basis of what is in fact in the public interest as a whole instead
of what is in the interest of the interests that elected them to office the country will be better off.
If you weren't so misinformed, your posts wouldn't be so insipid.
The world does enjoy a good laugh from time to time and the American political system and
the societal preoccupation with the silly is a spectacle that is on going.
