Healthcare Insurance is not a Constitutional right

Healthcare Insurance is a States Issue

I am disappointed in the effort of the current congress to write an omnipotent health care insurance bill. This is a complex and impossible task and surely will not result in an acceptable solution.

Furthermore I am appalled at the veiled and hidden tax placed not directly on consumers but on the businesses that consumers utilize as method paying for and subsidizing other people's health care. We are smarter than that - a tax is a tax no matter where is applied.

Healthcare insurance is a "states" issue - to be mandated and governed by the states to the satisfaction and control of the residents of that state. You would do well to remember The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) of the United States Constitution, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

The US Constitution does not speak of healthcare insurance, and thus quite clearly healthcare insurance becomes a States rights issue, and the Federal government is Constitutionally barred from being involved in this. And until it is a Constitution amendment, you would do well to stay focused on issues that are relevant the to reason and purpose that you were elected to your post.

I assure you all, anyone who votes for this in the Congress will not enjoy my support at the voting booths in 2010 and 2012
