Subject: From a Constitutional Lawyer…PLEASE DO NOT DELETE WITHOUT

*  Dear Friends:

*  Please do not delete this without reading it and PASSING IT ON.

*  Michael Connelly ( ) is a
Constitutional Lawyer and has read the entire health care bill and has
some comments, not about the bill, but about the effects on our
Constitution. It’s a broader picture than just health care reform.

*  All of you and those to whom you communicate had better sit up and pay
attention; once this sort of thing happens, it will be
irreversible. Take a look and let me
know what you think.

The blog will concentrate of my concerns as a retired attorney about the
imminent and growing threats to our Constitution and our form of
government. We have reason to be very afraid of what is happening.


Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed
House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of
2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of
expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that
parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be
unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had
heard or expected.

20   To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and
its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats
and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing
of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other
classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal
immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced
participation in abortions by members of the medical

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance
companies out of business and put everyone into a government
run system. All decisions about personal health care will
ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats and most of them
will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions,
payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical
devices will be strictly controlled.

However, as scary as all of that it, it just scratches the
surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation
really has no intention of providing affordable health care
choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive
transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that
has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a
similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of
the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance
of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial
branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be
transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number
of different areas over the lives of the American people and
the businesses they own. The irony is that the Congress
doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas
to begin with. I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S.
Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of
Congress to regulate health care.

The paragraph below is really frightening.

This legislation also provides for access by the appointees of
the Obama administration of all of your personal healthcare
information, your personal financial information, and the
information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of
this is a direct violation of the specific provisions of the
4thAmendment to the Constitution protecting against
unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about
the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into
oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance or if you have
private insurance that is not deemed “acceptable” to the
“Health Choices Administrator” appointed by Obama there will be
a tax imposed on you. It is called a “tax” instead of20a fine
because of the intent to avoid application of the due process
clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn’t work because
since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or
appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving
someone of property without the “due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far
left hate so much out the original ten in the Bill of Rights
that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop
there though. The 9th Amendment that provides: “The
enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not
be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the
people;” The 10th Amendment states: “The powers not delegated
to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it
to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to
the people.” Under the provisions of this piece of
Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are
going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that
once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I
think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is
about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the
Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress
to “be bound by oath or affirmation” to support the
Cons titution. If I was a member of Congress I would not be
able to vote for this legislation or anything like it without
feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I
voted for it anyway I would hope the American people would
hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat I suggest
they consult the source. Here is a link to the Constitution:

And another to the Bill of Rights:

There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.
