"You will face ONE YEAR in prison for resisting
ObamaCare. It's part of the massive lies and
distortions designed to hide the real dangers of
ObamaCare. Please see below." --Steve
Yesterday, the Senate Finance Committee staged two votes on
adding the "public option" to the Baucus version of ObamaCare.
I say "staged" because Senate Democrats fully expected both
amendments to fail. That was their plan. They want YOU to
think that the Senate version of ObamaCare will not include
a "public option" and therefore it's not really a government-run
That's simply a lie--In fact, it couldn't be further from the truth!
The REAL truth is, ObamaCare with or without the public option
is still a massively oppressive and unconstitutional government
takeover of our healthcare system, and as citizens we cannot
But it gets worse.
Senate Democrats plan to sneak the public option back in to the
final ObamaCare bill when it moves to the Senate floor... when
there will be little time for real debate... and no scrutiny of
a Committee hearing!
So the votes yesterday were an intentional distortion to get you
and I off track -- to make us think that ObamaCare is moving to
the middle and becoming a bi-partisan bill.
But it gets worse...
This is because as bad as the "public option" is, it isn't even
the most insidious DANGER of ObamaCare.
And what is the most insidious DANGER of the entire ObamaCare
scheme? The unprecedented and unconstitutional INDIVIDUAL MANDATE.
+ + The Individual Mandate is UNPRECEDENTED...
According to the Congressional Budget Office:
"A mandate requiring all individuals to purchase health
insurance would be an unprecedented form of federal action.
The government has never required people to buy any good
or service as a condition of lawful residence in the
Never before in U.S. History has such a federal mandate been imposed
on the people of the United States!
Why? Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional.
Let me say that again...
THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
If the individual mandate is considered a "regulation" then it most
certainly is unconstitutional.
Most of the expansion of federal power of the past 90 years has
taken place through the Commerce clause of the Constitution. In
other words, if some activity impacts "commerce," Congress claims
authority to regulate.
But there is no "commerce" involved in "being" an American! As the
CBO so clearly stated, such a mandate on "lawful residence" is
unprecedented. That's because it is clearly unconstitutional!
And here's where Obama and the Democrats run into trouble because
the only way they can justify ObamaCare is to call it a tax
instead of a regulation and then claim Congressional authority
But scholars are saying that this type of tax is likely also
unconstitutional. Plus, Obama said he "rejects the notion" that
the individual mandate is a tax, fearing his plan will lose more
support if it is exposed as a tax increase.
+ + The Individual Mandate IS Government Takeover
With or without the so-called "public option", the Individual Mandate
means ObamaCare is a government takeover of healthcare. That's
ecause the individual mandate gives government control over the
healthcare system by giving the government the authority to FORCE
you to comply!
In fact, if you don't pay the Individual Mandate TAX, you'll face
up to a $25,000 fine or even ONE YEAR IN JAIL!
There is no escaping the government-run ObamaCare system. This is
the definition of a government takeover of healthcare!
Here's what CATO Institute says about the Individual Mandate:
"Simply making health insurance compulsory gives
government as much control over healthcare as
would a compulsory government program."
We've been lied to...
The truth has been distorted...
And the real dangers of ObamaCare (the pubic option and the individual
mandate) are alive and well.
If you're not angry, you might want to check your pulse!
I, for one, am outraged, and I hope you are too!

We have reached perhaps the most dangerous time in this crucial debate.
The Left is executing its deception strategy to perfection. Their plan
to sneak the public option into the final bill has already been hatched.
And even worse, most conservatives are not yet focusing on the dangers
of the individual mandate.
Thanks for taking action,
Steve Elliott, President
P.S. My staff is gathering compelling evidence that the healthcare
is nothing more than a contrivance of Obama and the Left to seize control
of one-seventh of the economy!
