Understanding Obamacare

We all know that the federal government’s takeover of healthcare is unquestionably unconstitutional.  Now I know that some liberals out there disagree, therefore I ask you to show me where this authority is spelled out in the enumerated powers.  If you cannot do so, then Obamacare must be repealed.  After all we must always remember that, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”  Oh, that darn pesky 10th Amendment.

Nevertheless, as we wait for the multitude of state lawsuits to proceed through the judicial system, we should take a bit of time to understand what Obamacare means and how it could impact our lives.  Fortunately, our friends at Americans For Limited Government are taking the time to wade through the impact of Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the official name of Obamacare).  They’ve recently created a new website http://obamacarewatcher.org/ to uncover many of the pitfalls hidden within this liberal feel good legislation.

Despite the claims of some big government Republicans, nationalized healthcare doesn’t need to be replaced or reformed, but repealed completely and the idea thrown on the ash heap of history.  This ridiculous folly mocks the concept of liberty, the notion of individualism, and ultimately undermines the true spirit of America.  As we work toward this goal, I strongly encourage reading more on Obamacare Watcher so that you can learn the truth for yourself.
