    once I reinserted the “s” that you’d removed from the word “constitution,” I was rewarded with one of the most incoherent rants I’ve ever read. laffs for days. thanks!

    Because Group2012 has so much ground to stand on.

    This “health care violates the Constitution” business is a load of claptrap. It’s the same garbage they’ve been talking since Roosevelt, and if it comes to passing a new Constitutional Amendment vs. losing SS and Medicare, say hello to a new amendment. It’s all talk.

    Of course, it’s constitutional. These ninnies can’t tell the difference between Russia and Sweden, and we’re supposed to care what they think?

    I love the format; bitching about librulz interspersed with Iowa City road work updates.

    When liberals don’t like the truth, logic, or reason contrary to their agenda, they call it spam and attempt to make fun of it.

    Liberal argument tactic #1: “Your thinking is wrong.”

    Said despite the evidence, despite truth, logic, or reason.

    There is no Constitutional authorization allowing the federal government to force citizens to buy health care insurance.

    No, I address your actual points and wait for a substantive response from you. I get your starting premise again.

    Like I said, you obviously don’t know anything about logic, you just say the word over and over again.

  8. Group2012 Says:

    You ignore valid responses and refutation because you’re a coward. You don’t know how to handle the truth.

    You lack substance, you lack reason, all you are capable of doing to regurgitate liberal talking points.

    You are easily duped by liberal leadership lies.

    A much more detailed and knowledgeable argument.

    As I said, there will be no real Constitutional challenge to health care reform, any more than there are challenges to SS or Medicare. Even your own columnists, Reagan/Bush staffers that they are, do not make a firm prediction on a verdict. They simply claim the argument has some strength to it.

    Personally, I say there should be a waiver you can sign that says you will pay for all your health care out of pocket the rest of your life, without insurance. Then you can be considered exempt from the mandate.

    Otherwise, you’re going to try saving money while you’re healthy, and then buy insurance when you get sick. Which would, of course, have a drastic impact on the system that you want to take part in. The undue burden would be created by you rather than imposed on you. Any health care mandate means nothing other than you are mortal and may become incapacitated this very day.
