Earlier, I reported this letter from Senator Dianne Feinstein:
"...I support reforming our healthcare system. The key is to find a healthcare plan that provides coverage, as well as limits cost. My colleagues in the Senate and I have been working on this, but it is a difficult issue and must be carefully thought out. I understand that you have concerns about the constitutionality of enacting healthcare reform legislation. Although specific proposals have not been finalized, I can provide a general overview of how Constitutional principles might apply to the issue of healthcare reform.
Article I, section 8 of the Constitution states that "Congress shall have Power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States..." The power to raise and expend revenue for the general welfare is one of the broadest powers in the Constitution. This provision has afforded the Constitutional basis of government health programs in the Social Security Act, including Medicare, Medicaid, and the State Children's Health Insurance Program.
One of the significant ways the federal government can encourage state behavior is by imposing conditions on the receipt of federal funds. The Supreme Court has held that when Congress imposes conditions on federal funds that go to the States, these conditions represent a valid exercise of Congress' power under the Constitution's Spending Clause.
Additionally, the Commerce Clause of the Constitution empowers Congress "to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes." The Supreme Court has found that the Commerce Clause allows Congress to regulate "those activities having a substantial relation to interstate commerce." This power has been cited as the Constitutional basis for a significant portion of the laws passed by Congress that affect the domestic economy across states.
In addition to what I shared on Judicial Commitee Member Senator Feinstein, CNS news now has Senator Feinstein on audio stating that the Commerce clause of the Constitution gives her and Congress unlimited powers in Healthcare.
Feinstein: "Well, I would assume it would be in the Commerce clause of the Constitution. That’s how Congress legislates all kinds of various programs.”
Reporter: “If there’s a health insurance mandate, is there a limit to that authority? Is there something that can’t be mandated?”
Feinstein: “My own view is that there is not, within health insurance.”
UNLIMITED POWERS? How FAR does unlimited really mean? Does that include the Deathcare panels and the right to genocide seniors? Since seniors buy their drugs which have to cross state lines, you might say, "you betcha." How about the right to exterminate conservatives like me, because I breathe too much CO2 into the atmosphere...and that CO2, now an EPA regulated gas, could eventually cross state lines...since she believes the powers are unlimited? That is not as over the top as one might think, because no one dared believe Weimar Germany was capable of descending into such depravity in less than 10 years after its Democracy was removed. Who is to say that the US couldn't do the same -- via the fringe lunatic Left --in as few as 2-3 years over environmentalism, healthcare, and politics? They are literally crazy enough to morally justify it, and consider themselves as rational; be they using Cass Sunstein's University of Chicago Lives, Life-Years, and Willingness to Pay July 2003 paper or the Jewish sage "Rashi", in which people ar assigned a subjective cost value of worth.
"And if [the person is] sixty years old [or over] - When people reach a venerable age, a woman’s value becomes closer to that of a man. This is why a man decreases [in value] in his old age [to] beyond a third of his value [as an adult, namely, from 50 shekels to 15], while a woman [in her old age] decreases [to] only one third of her value [namely, from 30 shekels to 10]."
To clarify, if Cass Sunstein follows Rashi and attempts to apply that Secularly...and Senator Feinstein believes that Healthcare has unlimited powers over life and death...anyone reaching the age of 60 is fair game to be liquidated for the CO2 benefits of the environment, the preserving of the planet's resources, the freeing up of assets and wealth they leave behind, and cutting the costs of Healthcare expenses. In other words, the Leftists in Congress by their actions are implementing and justifying National Socialism and the Final Solution. What is with all this Final Solution stuff? The Muslims want to Final Solution all Jews and all Christians (see their Hadith); the Cass Sunsteins and Dianne Feinsteins act as if they want a reverse Final Solution on the non-Jews of the US; and the other Leftist lunatics want to Final Solution Christians and Conservatives who want a Democracy and a Republic not strangle held by Unions and corruption. Yikes!
If age 60 is so bad an age to live beyond, why don't those in Congress just simply legislate that members of Congress cannot be elected to Congressional Office after age 60, so that they simply all must retire by January 2011? Wouldn't that be a more practical and sane solution, since the sociopathicism of Sunstein and the senility of Feinstein, Reid, Pelosi, and others of the radical left are driving this Usurpation toward Communism in the USA in the Legislative Branch of the Federal Government?
