Unconstitutional Health Care Law Repealed!

by Candice Miller on January 19, 2011

Today I was privileged to vote to repeal Obamacare! The U.S. House of Representatives passed the health care repeal legislation by a vote of 245 to 189.  This is the first step towards roll-backing an over-reaching and burdensome health care bill.  Requiring citizens to buy a service from an insurance company is not constitutional.  The US Constitution gives certain enumerated powers to the federal government.  I can find NO power allowing the federal government to force any citizen to enter into a private contract against their will – which is exactly what the ObamaCare bill accomplishes.  This repeal will allow the New GOP majority the ability to pass constitutional legislation to expand access to health care without costing our citizens trillions of dollars.
