A little more than 2 years ago, we decided to found this site to document the failures of the socialized medicine scheme known as Obamacare. At the time, we here at ObamacareFail knew what the results would be; Increased Premiums,Astrnomical Costs,and at the end of the day poorer quality care and less freedom for all.
No, we did not make use of a crystal ball to determine what these realities which are on display for everyone to see. Rather, we have studied the results of socialized medicine and centrally planned economies throughout the world. While the Soviet Union may have collapsed, the fact is there are still people who believe in the espoused philospohies of Marx and Lenin. As President Reagan aptly pointed out in 1983, societies based on the principles of Marx and Lenin are doomed to end up on “the ash heap of history.”
As Obamacare is based on the belief that everyone is forced to purchase healthcare, we have no doubt a Constitutionally minded Supreme Court devoid of special interests and personal ideology will declare this law to be Un-Constitutional. There were some during this week who claimed previous Supreme Court cases, such as 1942’s Wickard v. Filburn justify this law under the interstate commerce clause of The Constitution. Nonesense. Regardless of the so called legal merits of the Wickard v. Filburn case, which arose from FDR’s New Deal, one needs to take a look at the Supreme Court which made that ruling. In the early part of FDR’s administration, most of his New Deal economic planning schemes were deemed to be Un-Constitutional. The so called “Four Horseman,” Constitutionally minded, led the court in this direction. However, by 1942, the Four Horseman had retired from the Supreme Court, leaving Roosevelt sympathizers and appointees on the court. It is no wonder the Wickard v. Filburn ruling ultimately favored the Roosevelt Administration’s interventionist policies.
The point of bringing this case up is that many in the media have decided not to talk about the realities in 1942, just as they have omitted the ways in which Obamacare was passed through Congress back in March 2010. Never do they mention the Stupak Controversy , The Cornhusker Kickback , The Louisiana Purchase , nor the False Promises , or supposed deficit reducing gimmicks.
They also fail to point out that instead of focusing on how to cure what ails the US economy, President Obama chose to focus the treasury, his energies, and political capital into passing Obamacare.
The choice between President Obama and Mitt Romney cannot be clearer this November.
In the days to come, we will continue to highlight some of our earlier posts about Obamacare’s broken promises.
