Boehner Calls Democrats' New Health Bill "1,990 Pages of Bureaucracy" - Video 10/29/09

Here is video of GOP House Minority Leader John Boehner responding to the Democrats' new 1,990 page bill released today. Boehner said the bill is "1,990 pages of bureaucracy," and asked, "Now tell me how we are going to fix our health care system with 1,990 pages of bureaucracy?"

Why doesn't Rep. Boehner simply point out the following about any public healthcare bill the House makes? Given that the federal Constitution is silent about public healthcare, the 10th Amendment automatically reserves government power to regulate and lay taxes for healthcare to the states, not the Oval Office and Congress.

In fact, Chief Justice Marshall had established the following case precedent, now wrongly ignored, which appropriately limits the power of the feds to lay taxes.

"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." --Chief Justice Marshall, GIBBONS V. OGDEN (1824)

So not only is misguided Obama's proposed healthcare constitutionally unauthorized, but based on Justice Marshall's official words, the corrupt Congress never had the power to lay taxes to fund such a program in the first place.

What's going on, IMO, is the following. State sovereignty-ignorant voters have been electing lawmakers to both the state legislatures and the federal senate who are as state sovereignty-impaired as the voters are. Consequently, these lawmakers have not been doing their jobs to protect state sovereignty by protecting citizens from illegal federal taxes and unconstitutional federal government interference in their lives.

Finally, the following link should help give people an idea how state sovereignty-ignorant voters have shot themselves in the foot with big, corrupt federal government as a consequence of the ill-conceived, anti-state sovereignty 16th and 17th Amendments.

The 16th & 17th Amendments and the big, corrupt fed. gov.
