I’ll preface my statement by saying this: I am firmly against any expansion of government to include health care. This argument serves as only to provoke thought and to provide a better understanding of the argument as a whole, from all perspectives. After all, if you understand the enemy strategy, you can tailor your own accordingly. With recent support for the 9/12 project coming from liberals, voiced by Keith Olbermann (most likely an insincere attempt to garner a wider viewership, but let’s not look a gift ass in the mouth), I remain positive that this will come up, sooner rather than later. Article I, section 8, paragraph one states the following: “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;” I place emphasis on the term “Welfare.” Given that the health care bill going through the House is supposed to be about providing insurance for those without, that could easily be taken as providing “general Welfare,” thus providing a Constitutional basis for the bill, even in the strictest sense. I’d like to get everyone’s thoughts on this.
