The often insightful Dick Morris blows it big
time in a recent Polyanna-esque column touting the de facto demise
of ObamaCare. He ends it as follows:
So all that will be left are some very good consumer protection insurance reforms requiring coverage of pre-existing conditions and a ban on cancellation or premium hikes in the event of illness.If only this were all, but no. Even such a result camouflages the very real danger Obama poses to the great legacy of America's founders -- our freedom. Northrup Buechner (who notes that, "[s]ince President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, he has changed it five times") argues this point with startling clarity at Forbes:
Beyond that, there will be a vestigal administrative superstructure erected to run a massive, national healthcare system in which only 1.5 million people are participating. Like a monument in the desert, it will gather sand and erode over time.
The most important point is that Mr. Obama does not consider himself bound by the Constitution. He could not have made that more clear. He has drawn a line in the concrete and we cannot ignore it.Gloating over Barack Obama's apparently losing battle poses the very real threat of losing the war for freedom.
Those who currently hold political office, and who want to keep our system of government, need to act now. Surely, rejection of the Constitution is grounds for impeachment and charges should be filed. In addition, there are many other actions that Congressmen can and should take--actions that will tell Mr. Obama that we have seen where he is going and we will not let our country go without a fight.
