Breaking Sacred Trust
The real danger of the Health Debt Bill is not that it outlandishly and irresponsibly increases the Federal debt, though that alone is enough to throw all the supporters out on their ear, it is this: the legislation is a breach of sacred trust to the American people. It throws over and abandons our cherished freedom of self-determination. Even if we had a 10 trillion dollar surplus, the legislation would forever and always be wrong.
As our Governor proclaimed in Searchlight on Saturday, we are a Federal Republic composed of a national government of limited powers and sovereign States. The proposed Federal regulation of our healthcare takes the already bloated government to an entirely different level of aggrandizement. I say “proposed” because can the legislation stand up to serious Constitutional analysis? I daresay one proposition to support the illegality of the bill is that Congress didn’t really pass it — most Congressmen didn’t read it.
Do you feel heartbroken? I do.
Can the Governor, like-minded legislators and the Tea Party repair that trust? You betcha.
