Orrin Hatch,respected member of the Senate Judiciary Committee,raises a profound point. You see, he’s concerned that the Democrats’ so-called health care reform would be “the first time where our government would demand that people buy something that they may or may not want.” Hatch says, “That isn’t America. That’s not freedom. That’s not Constitutionally sound.” That’s right:Democrat health care could well be unconstitutional.
A state-controlled reporter actually asked Robert Gibbs of the White House: “Have White House lawyers looked at this issue? Has this been examined in any way?” Gibbs said: “Not that I know of [because I don’t know anything].” The reporter followed up: “Do you not feel there is any concern at all about whether it is Constitutional for Congress to impose a mandate?” Gibbs’s response: “No.” Gibbs said the Obama administration is not seriously considering the concerns of people like Senator Hatch.
So… Democrats raise hell, callingBush’s spying on terrorists unconstitutional. Democrats raise hell, awarding Constitutional rights to terrorists at Club Gitmo. Democrats cite the Constitutionto justify unlimited abortion rights,and to bar any mention of God in the public square. Yet, as they try to take over one-sixth of the economy, Obama and Democrats dismiss the Constitutional concerns of a sitting senator– and of the American people.
Now, I’ve told you this bunch views our Constitution as an obstacle; here’s your proof. But in 2010 and 2012, it’s your turnto make these radicals pay attention to our Constitution– and to you — and pay the price for their arrogance.
