“This bill is unconstitutional!"


I haven’t posted in a while and then when I do, I bring up something controversial, but it really is important that Christians are responsible in whatever area that God has given us to rule over… So I am inserting some comments I found on a website called, “ The Center for Individual Freedom”. Blessings as you digest…

“This bill is unconstitutional and it cannot be fixed. It must be repealed. The battle for health care freedom is not over..." Senator Jim DeMint. He also said: "Americans lost this battle with their elected leaders in Washington but the war is not over. If we're willing to the fight to save freedom..."

Representative Michele Bachmann, who is actually introducing legislation to repeal ObamaCare, tells us that "government answers to the people, not the other way around, and the fight for the soul of this nation continues on.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell recently said that the American people "are tired of being treated more like obstacles to be overcome than constituents to be respected and heard. But they will be heard." Senator Charles Grassley introduced an amendment to the ObamaCare reconciliation bill that would have required President Obama, Senate leaders and their senior staff members to participate in ObamaCare. Yes, you read that right. Some of our elected leaders in Washington actually had the nerve to exempt themselves and their senior staff from ObamaCare. And when the amendment was defeated, Grassley quite aptly said: “The message to the people at the grassroots is that it’s [ObamaCare] good enough for you, but not for us.”

Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) pulled off his mask on Monday when he told Detroit WJR News/Talk 760 radio talk show host Paul W. Smith that; “The harsh fact of the matter is when you're going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people,' Dingell said.

Control the people. That’s a stunning admission. It’s what opponents of this government takeover have warned all along: This was never about health and it most certainly isn’t about care. It’s about cradle-to-grave government control over 'the people.

It would be advisable to remember the words of former-President Gerald Ford: "A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have."

Well there you have it... Karl

  1. I find it interesting that those most vocally opposed to helping the less fortunate are people who preach their love of Christ. Seems to me Jesus would prefer less war and the money spent on helping heal the sick and wounded who can't afford medical insurance or who are unfairly treated because of preexisting conditions.

    People against this bill claim it will control American's lives, that it was cost more, and that the legislative process is a mess. The first is blatent fearmongering, the second fails to account for medium to long term savings, and even if the latter is true this was a necessary first step. How many more people would have to die before the system is fixed up to your satisfaction?

    My mum died of cancer two years ago. I was able to spend several more years of time with her because we had excellent medical insurance and were lucky enough to have it before she got sick. I weep at the thought there are some people who didn't get this chance because they were either ineligible for insurance or couldn't afford it.

    I am not Christian, but I encourgage you to practise what you preach. Joh 13:34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
