Saturday Forum: A NY Lawyer Says No Matter What You May Hear, Mandatory Health Insurance Is Unconstitutional

Letter writer and lawyer Peter Castiglione neglected to mention that Obamacare is not only illegal in that it may provide insurance coverage for aliens, but that it also clearly violates the Constitution's Tenth Amendment, which reads:

"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."

Defined another way, the Tenth Amendment says that all that is not surrendered by the Constitution to the government is retained by the people.

In other words, I have the right to retain control over my own health care needs.

The federal government, on the other hand, cannot legally fine me or send me to prison if I do not subscribe to Obamacare.

In the end, what Obamacare means is that someone like myself who absolutely will not participate in such illegitimate schemes will automatically become law breakers.

So, on top of all its other disasters, the federal government proposes to turn independent, productive, law abiding citizens like me into criminals.

This won't apply to illegal aliens since they are already criminals.

Obamacare's big fans including the president, the House and Senate Majority leaders Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid should familiarize themselves with the Constitution.
