Hands Off My Healthcare!
14,524 Letters and Emails Sent So FarIt is crucial Americans support the March 27th Hands Off Our Health Care rally at Upper Senate Park to show our determination in ending Obamacare. Sign this petition and then send it to your federal representatives!The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is an unprecedented overreach of federal power aimed at redefining the Constitution and distorting the intentions of our nations Founding Fathers.
The Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution did not grant Congress the power to directly impose an individual mandate to purchase healthcare insurance. Congress has never before attempted to use the Commerce Clause to justify imposing a mandate on economic inactivity; interstate commerce would not be affected.
The Tea Party movement has prided itself on defending the Constitution, and Obamacare is an attempt by a leftist Congress and Executive Branch to fundamentally and unconstitutionally alter our founding documents. America has not seen such an assault on and blatant disregard for our Constitution since September 17th, 1787 when it was adopted and ratified.
Now, as the Supreme Court gets ready to hear arguments over the Constitutionality of the individual mandate, we feel we should make this severe overreach of federal powers known to the America people. Whether the Supreme Court strikes down the mandate and throws Obamacare out in its entirety, or the Congress repeals it, Obamacare must not stand!
Gotta go, I'm going seal watching!
I hope it isn’t raining so I can ride the motorcycle up ther. It’s a lot easier to find a place to park for it.
I am sure the Union Station lot will be full.
Not sure what the weather will be like tomorrow, but a motorcycle is the way to go if possible!
Tomorrow’s weather in DC will be sunny and mid 50s.

They were directing the thread away from it’s purpose, to bring attention to the rally today.
Thanks for the bump!
From Atlas Shrugged:
I quit when medicine was placed under State control, some years ago, said Dr. Hendricks. Do you know what it takes to perform a brain operation? Do you know the kind of skill it demands, and the years of passionate, merciless, excruciating devotion that go to acquire that skill? That was what I would not place at the disposal of men whose sole qualification to rule me was their capacity to spout the fraudulent generalities that got them elected to the privilege of enforcing their wishes at the point of a gun. I would not let them dictate the purpose for which my years of study had been spent, or the conditions of my work, or my choice of patients, or the amount of my reward. I observed that in all the discussions that preceded the enslavement of medicine, men discussed everything except the desires of the doctors. Men considered only the welfare of the patients, with no thought for those who were to provide it. That a doctor should have any right, desire or choice in the matter was regarded as irrelevant selfishness; his is not to choose, they said, only to serve. That a man whos willing to work under compulsion is too dangerous a brute to entrust with a job in the stockyards never occurred to those who proposed to help the sick by making life impossible for the healthy. I have often wondered at the smugness with which people assert their right to enslave me, to control my work, to force my will, to violate my conscience, to stifle my mind yet what is it that they expect to depend on, when they lie on an operating table under my hands? -Ayn Rand
