Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi Leads Charge Against ACA

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Today the Supreme Court will hear the final round of arguments on President Obama's Affordable Care Act. While 26 states joined the lawsuit against health care reform, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi filed the original suit, and Florida is the lead plaintiff in the case. "I can tell you that the Obama administration, they're going to try to focus on health care policy and that's not what it is about," Attorney General Bondi told Fox News last week. "This is about our rights of the United States Constitution." And in the midst of what Attorney General Bondi has called "one of the biggest cases of our lifetime," she is also leading an investigation into the Trayvon Martin case in Sanford, Florida. 

"I can tell you that the Obama administration, they're going to try to focus on health care policy and that's not what it is about. This is about our rights of the United States Constitution,"

The constitution provides for promoting the general welfare. Health Care is general welfare. What's unconstitutional about that?

Single Payer or Medicare for All would do away with the concept of "individual mandate."
Designing customised "individual" insurance coverage plans for each American sounds like an expensive administrative nightmare. AND, if we go with Pam Bondi's assertion that each state should design it's own program, heaven forbid that an American would need to seek necessary health care out of her own state.

Again ---- Why do Americans pay twice as much as any modern country for health care that delivers half as much??????? Yea Canadian, European SOCIALIST health care programs!!!
