What a Waste!

February 23, 2011

Recently U.S District Court Judge Vinson ruled Obamacare unconstitutional.  Not just parts of it, the whole darn law.  What a waste!  Not the judge or his ruling, but the whole fiasco which is Obamacare.  What a waste of precious time that could have been used to address our economic crisis.  What a waste of untold sums of money spent implementing, defending, discussing–ad nauseam–and challenging this ignominious and acrimonious legislation.   What a waste of our nation’s prestige.  The Tea Party was right all along.  Those “redneck, racists, bigots” clinging to their Constitution knew more instinctively than all of the collective genius DC could muster.

Over a year and a half was spent by this Administration and the former Democratic majorities in the House and Senate telling us that the 2000 page monstrosity was going to reduce health care costs and, as the President stated, “no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away.” Pardon me for quoting Joe Wilson, but “You lie.”

According to Chief Actuary Richard Foster when asked by Congressman Tom McClintock, R-CA, during a House Budget Committee hearing, “for a simple true or false response on two of the main assertions made by supporters of the law: that it will bring down unsustainable medical costs and will let people keep their current health insurance if they like it. On the costs issue, ‘I would say false, more so than true,’ Foster responded. As for people getting to keep their coverage, ‘not true in all cases.’”  Two central pillars in the temple of Obamacare toppled at the hands of Richard “Samson” Foster.

With 26 states now participating in lawsuits across the country, the score stands at 2 for and 2 against Obamacare in the courts with Virginia’s Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, soliciting the Supreme Court to hear the case now as opposed to letting it work its way through the appellate system based on the “…imperative public importance.”  I cannot think of a time in our history where 26 of our 57 states—by Obama’s count—launched opposition to legislation passed by the federal government.

Also, by a vote of 245 to 189 the House voted to repeal Obamacare in its entirety in a bill that was shockingly contained within two pages—something I dare say we haven’t seen since the dawn of the Republic—surpassing the number of votes by 26 that brought this monstrosity to life like a creature in a Mary Shelley novel.

If this case is like many that have recently been decided by the Supreme Court, it will probably end in a 5-4 decision with Justice Kennedy being the swing.  Whether it will be a decision for or against is, sadly, debatable.  Should the High Court rule that Obamacare is unconstitutional, I would be not surprised if calls go out for the impeachment of this president.  Our Constitutional Scholar in Chief’s blind ambition, malfeasance, and utter incompetence in abdicating his responsibility and sworn duty to uphold the Constitution will have been exposed, while at the same time he ignored an economic crisis of colossal proportions which drove millions of Americans out of their homes and jobs—a “high crime and misdemeanor” worthy of expulsion from the highest office in the land.  He can take with him any of the 219 representatives left who would have betrayed their oath and the American people as well, most of whom didn’t even take the time to read the bill which they passed into law.

President Obama has said “that the time to fight the overhaul has passed.”  Unfortunately the recent midterm elections and the American people have clearly stated otherwise.  While the repeal made it through the People’s House, it lost 47-51 along party lines in the Senate. So as the Republicans and Democrats return to their respective corners, the American people await the sound of the bell signifying another round in what looks to be a long and arduous fight.  May the People win.
