Your healthcare's new Doctor

Is their a constitutional scholar in the house?

I certainly am not one. In fact, I didn't even sleep in a Holiday Inn Express last night, but I think this is plain enough for any dufus to understand.

Article IV - The States

Section 1 - Each State to Honor all others

Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.

Section 2 - State citizens, Extradition

The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.

What that says is that that all the goodies and all the badies (keeping it simple for the Lefties who read this) are to be shared equally.

Obviously having the citizens of the other 49 states pay for the benefits that only Nebraska is to receive is wrong. As I noted, the last time we created two separate groups of states, slavery legal and slavery illegal, the final result was a country torn apart.

It is obvious that the Leftie Democrats working for Obamie The Bower do not care about such minor items as the Constitution. Indeed, it is doubtful that Obamie the Bower has any respect for anything beyond what is in the UN bylaws/treaties and, most likely, the Koran.

As some of the more careful readers here have read and should remember, I have written that I have no particular problem with a single payer system, that's Universal Health Care, modeled on Medicare. The rub comes, as it always does, in paying for "entitlements."

I have said that it should be paid for by a National Sales Tax, collected at the point of sale. This would insure that we all, including drug dealers, other criminals, flea market dealers and illegal aliens, pay our fair share.

This bill does not even provide Universal Coverage and will be paid for by the middle class. And "No Virginia, there is no Santa Claus" from the rich to do so.

Instead to pay for this for his base of uneducated and over educated mostly never do anything and never do well minions, Obamie The Bower has decided to have the elderly of the country pay for it by stripping Medicare of $500 billion. That this will create shortages and rationing is denied by the Lefties, but even they know by experience, that when the money runs out before the monthly check arrives, be it from Uncle Sugar or Daddy, shortages and denials of services is the norm.

As a country we are in dire straits. If we actually had a Congress of responsible men and women I would feel more comfortable. As it is, I see only people who love power and will sell their souls to keep keep it.
