Rush Limbaugh Calls House Health Care Bill a "Freedom Killing" and "Life-Threatening" Bill - Audio 11/9/09

Here is audio of Rush Limbaugh today calling the Government Health Care Bill passed by the House on Saturday a "freedom killing" and "life threatening" bill, because the rationing of Health Care that will result from it will actually lead to people dying "earlier than normal."

I wish that Rush and other Constitution-defending patriots would start pointing out the following major constitutional problems with Obamacare. Given the federal Constitution is silent about public healthcare, the federal government has no constitutional authority to regulate healthcare. Please consider the writings by constitutional experts on this issue.

First, contrary to what Pelosi and other constitutionally-impaired lawmakers might think, Congress has no power to regulate intrastate commerce.

“For the power given to Congress by the Constitution does not extend to the internal regulation of the commerce of a State, (that is to say of the commerce between citizen and citizen,) which remain exclusively with its own legislature; but to its external commerce only, that is to say, its commerce with another State, or with foreign nations, or with the Indian tribes.” –Thomas Jefferson, Jefferson’s Opinion on the Constitutionality of a National Bank : 1791.

Next, the USSC has already tested the idea of Congress regulating medicine, deciding against Congress.

“Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously beyond the power of Congress.” –-Linder v. United States, 1925.

One reason that the corrupt federal government has greatly overstepped its constitutional limits in healthcare issues is this. Pro-big federal government, outcome-driven justices nominated by constitutionally clueless Socialist FDR perverted the reasonable interpretation of the Commerce clause (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3) in the 1940s.

The bottom line is that the Congressmen who vote yes on Obamacare will make a handy list of lawmakers who need to be charged with treason for blatantly violating their oaths to defend the Constitution.

Finally, the following words of Thomas Jefferson are appropriate for the HoR’s exercising of constitutionally nonexistent federal government powers where Obamacare legislation is concerned.

“Where powers are assumed which have not been delegated, a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.” –Thomas Jefferson: Draft Kentucky Resolutions, 1798.
