March 23, 2012, marks the 2-year anniversary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act becoming law, otherwise known as “Obama Care.” It was On March 23, 2010 that President Obama signed the act into law and sanctioned one of the greatest power grabs by our federal government in our nation’s history.
The Obama Care bill is unconstitutional on many counts. From the 5th and 14th Amendments that require the federal government to give American citizens due process of law in order to take our life, liberty and property from us; to the 10th Amendment that allows the states to determine matters not specified in the Constitution, this Obama Care law is a complete trampling upon the liberties of all Americans.
Let’s consider the basis upon which Obama and the Democrat Congress enacted the Obama Care law in the first place. They passed the bill in Congress based on their interpretation of the Commerce Clause of the Constitution of the United States. However, the Commerce Clause only gives the federal government the power to regulate how Commerce is traded between the states. The federal government has no authority to tell the American people what kind of commerce to buy. Yet, that is precisely what Obama Care does.
