Obama Tells Jake Tapper that the House Health Bill is "a Health Care Bill, Not an Abortion Bill" - Video 11/9/09


Here is video of an ABC News "Nightline" Interview President Obama did with correspondent Jake Tapper.

Tapper asked Obama about the amendment to the House Health Care Bill that would prevent abortions being paid for. Obama said "this is a Health Care Bill, not an abortion bill."

Obama also said that visiting Dover to honor the remains of servicemen and women who have been killed in action has a huge impact on him as he considers what to do going forward in Afghanistan.

BrianInMO,

How about the part where Obama did not deny the question about jail time for those who don't get health insurrence? "There should be punishment"

"To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." - Thomas Jefferson

There is no where in the Constitution's 12 deliniated Powers of the legislative branch that allow the Federal Government to even get involved in health care at all!!

I said a whlie back that I don't think the Constituition even exists any more. As long as "We The People" sit back and allow this Government to overstep its' Constitutional boundries then I know for sure that the Constitution does not exist. The Founding Fathers made sure that "We The People" were the power, not the Federal Government.

With November 5th just past us, we can learn from "Guy Fawkes" and the movie "V". "The people should not be afraid of their Government, Government should be afraid of its' people".

As Always, Thanks for being involved, Many Blessings, Shane (Hangmann747)

There is no where in the Constitution's 12 deliniated Powers of the legislative branch that allow the Federal Government to even get involved in aviation, either, since it didn't exist in 1789. Does that mean the FAA and the NTSB are unconcstitutional? I kind of like knowing that there are regulatory authorities keeping an eye on the friendly skies. If we all traveled by oxcart, it might be a decent reason to stay with "original intent" in such a lietralist way.

Larry S,

The Founding Fathers left us a way to deal with an ever growing nation. Its called Amendments!

I'm not one who is against adding things to the Constitution when needed, such as the NTSB, and the FAA. I am a licensed Airframe & Powerplant Avionics Mechanic, so I know they’re needed.

I am someone who is against make an end run around or circumventing the founding principles of the Constitution by just starting the NTSB or adding powers to the Government without amending the Constitution. There was a strong reason why the founding fathers did not want these types of things just "Done". They wrote many articles about how tyrannical Governments formed, and in all cases it was because the Government took power away from the people, without the people consent.

Watch the movie "National Treasure II”. In the scene with the toy helicopter and Statue of Liberty, they explain a founding fathers point. "No one should have any power over someone else unless that person gives that other person that power!"

That is our Constitution at it's root core and why it is so important not to let the Government just start something that the Constitution does not give them the power to do.

If something is needed, like the NTSB, then we should amend the Constitution. In that process, you would need a 3/4's majority of both houses, signing by the president, then ratification of 3/4's of the several states. The only way all that can happen is if "We The People" wanted it to happen. In that case "We The People" would be giving that new or larger power to the Government of our own free will!

Not having that power taken from us a piece at a time.

Thanks for being involved, Many Blessings, Shane (Hangmann747)

Larry S.

I have a link for you, go to min 2:20 of the video.

Then you might want to read, "The Spirit of Laws" by Baron de montesquieu. He explains my point better then I ever could.

By the way the founding fathers listened to him very carefully.


Thanks Shane (Hangmann747)
