Mark Warner asked: Where in the constitution does it say the government can take over health care

posted by Susan Johnson

Yeah, in theory he’s right, they’ve been doing way too much for too long but now it’s time for us to draw a line in the sand and say, no further. You can’t control my health care. Government, keep your hands off my body (it’s that the feminist rallying cry?). It’s none of your business what type of health care I have or if I have a terminal disease but want to keep living. I don’t want the federal government controlling my health care decisions and when we get to single payer (which is Obama’s stated goal), that will be the only game in town.(via)

Glad you enjoy having corporations’ hands on your body, since that’s the current status quo. As for the Constitution not specifically saying they can run healthcare, super. It also doesn’t say we can have a VA hospital system, Medicare, Social Security, the National Park Service, etc, etc, etc.
Of course, Article 1, Section 8, Clause 1 of the Constitution is likely what Congress would use to say “yeah, actually we can do that”.

Why do I read this blog?
Because the Christians I know aren’t total asses like Michelle, and it helps me appreciate them more. Michelle and her family, of course, grab all the government benefits they can. They just don’t want them for anyone else.

Weren’t the sanctity of marriage people all for amending the Constitution?
Insurance is not like utilities. Maybe it should be but then everyone would immediately recognize its uselessness and the jig would be up.

“It’s none of your business what type of health care I have”
lucky for you, michele, you will be on your private (or corporate sponsored) health insurance plan.
i hate to wish ill on someone, but i it would do you some good to be uninsured for a good period of time to get a taste of how spoiled you are and how insensitive you are to those who don’t have any insurance at all. walk a mile in their shoes…

If you want to be consistently against government having its “hands” on healthcare, you should be against Medicare and the VA as well, both of which I’d prefer to the current for-profit insurance companies having their hands all over whether I get the kind of care my doctor recommends, among other things.
Providing for the common good is what the Constitution intends, and making sure people have affordable, accessible healthcare without others profiting off their suffering seems like a reasonable application of that intent. It also goes along pretty well with the Biblical concept of loving our neighbors and, yes, being our brothers’ (and sisters’) keepers.
Unless you’re living in the alternative right-wing crazy universe that seems to be under construction lately.

I agree, stop government healthcare and stop the war on drugs also. They are both unconstitutional.

One Final Word
My dear friend Michele slipped into eternity on Wednesday, February 1.   She was a remarkable woman who left a legacy of faith, determination, and love. For three years she courageously battled the ovarian cancer that eventually robbed her of her life.  A few days before she died, one of her docto

The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated
My husband told me that there are rumors that I've died. I'm happy to report that I'm still very much alive. My cancer has gone to stage four but we are controlling it with chemo, the cancer numbers are currently in the normal range. I've stopped blogging to concentrate on my daughters and writing a

An update and a prayer request
Several people have asked about Michele's condition, and have promised to pray for her. On her behalf, I thank you for that. I spoke with her a little while ago, and she asked that I come here and tell you what's going on, and to ask you to pray for her. She isn't able to post here herself right
