Anything goes!

Question: “Under what portion of the Constitution is the government allowed to require a private or religious organization to pay for anything for free?”

Dem Rep. Kathy Hochul: “Well, basically, we’re not looking to the Constitution on that aspect of it. What I’m trying to say is basically the decision has been made by this congress that American citizens are entitled to health care.”

Congress has decided that they are no longer going to have to worry about what the Constitution says.  Guess that’s fair.  After all, it’s not like Presbo has been paying any attention to it.

Of course, now that Congress has decided that we are “entitled” to health care, they can also decide that after a certain age, regardless of how long our folks and grandparents actually lived, that once we’ve met the marker that they have set, that we are no longer entitled to that healthcare (except for Congress of course).  The death panel otherwise know as the Independent Payment Advisory Board.  Curiously, lame duck Barney Frank has joined legislation to try to repeal this.  Guilt?

So Congress no longer has to bother with paying attention to that annoying Constitution either.  Be really entertaining to see what new things that they decide we are entitled to.  It’s only money.  Not like it’s ever going to be paid back.  Might as well enjoy it ’till China cuts us off and it all collapses.
