tyler — I have to comment one more time on this Supreme Court argument going on right now about the health care law.
This is such an ideological issue. It should be a constitutional issue.
The government should not be allowed to make you buy anything.
I've said all along this Obamacare is not about health care. It's the nose of the camel getting under the tent.
This country is almost evenly divided right now of those who make the engine run and those who think they are owed something.
Case and point, this from CNS news.
During oral arguments in the Supreme Court this week, Justice Stephen Breyer posed and answered the core question at issue in the controversy over the constitutionality of Obamacare's mandate that individual Americans must buy government-approved health insurance policies: Can Congress order individuals to buy a good or service?
"Yes, of course they could," said Breyer.
In the history of the nation, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the federal government has never done this.
Another opinion is from Justice Antonin Scalia.
Justice Antonin Scalia posed to Obama's solicitor general a fundamental question that the mandate raises about the nature of the U.S. government.
He said "If the government can do this, what else can it not do?"
As an American citizen, I have the right to move full-time to our family farm in Trinity County, sit on the front porch, not buy insurance if I'm crazy enough not to at my age. And Not buy a computer and do darn near whatever I want as long as it's legal.
And now you're telling me this would be illegal.
That's just wrong. But this is what this health care deal is all about.
Not health, but control.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
