FoxNews – FFPL Prepared to Sue

2

The Fund for Personal Liberty, a civil advocacy non-profit organization, is mentioned on FoxNews.com in advance of the senate vote for the Health Care Reform Bill.

“I personally do not believe the Congress has the authority to enact an individual mandate requiring a person to purchase a product from a private seller,” said Kent Masterson Brown, lead counsel with The Fund for Personal Liberty. “I don’t think the power is there. This is not regulating anything.” 

He said his group would be joined by the Washington Legal Foundation in filing suit against the health care bill. 

“This thing may be stillborn, even if it passes,” he said.

    SUBJECT: H.R. 3962 Affordable Health Care for America Act (OR) SIMILAR

    We are not required by law to purchase any product from the government nor can taxpayers be liable to pay bribes made by our elected representatives.

    SEE DETAILS BELOW

    DEAR PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, HARRY REID OF THE SENATE & HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI:
    ,
    1) You are forbidden to pass a Health Care Reform Bill that which is “unconstitutional”.
    2) I will not endorse nor [participate] in any government run health care bill that if it becomes “law” be administered and enforced by the “Internal Revenue Service” or the Health and Human Services Secretary. Again,the mandates are unconstitutional.
    3) As an American Citizen, I cannot be “FORCED” to buy health insurance. No law can authorize such a mandate nor does the IRS have any authority to enforce without amending the U.S. CONSTITUTION. Period.
    4) President Barack Obama [The President] is forbidden to sign into law that which is unconstitutional regardless if the Senate passes their version of the Bill.
    5) H.R. 3962 is therefore UNCONSTITUTIONAL and if passed by the Senate,

    MERITS OF “NEW HEALTH CARE REFORM” SHOULD ONLY FOCUS ON CONSTITUTIONALITY!

    Dear Congress & Members of the Senate:

    I have a lawful right as an American Citizen to NOT participate in the Obama/ Baucus Health Care Reform Bills, now before Congress.

    Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation” to support the Constitution. The tax imposed as a penalty is forbidden under Article 1, Section 2, of the United States Constitution. Identifying individuals or groups for punitive taxes clearly violates Article I, Section 9, and paragraph 3 of the Constitution that provides that: “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law will be passed.” No due process, no jury of your peers. The IRS simply declares you guilty and confiscates your money. You will be punished and potentially financially ruined because you don’t obey the dictates of the ruling class. The Health Plan Bills (HR-3200) requires that the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE will be authorized to enforce “compliance” of the federal government run health care. However, the Internal Revenue Service would have no authority without amending the U.S. CONSTITUTION. Under the current internal revenue code, the IRS has no lawful authority to enforce anything other than Title 27 excises and privileges: alcohols, tobacco, firearms, gambling, see IRC Section 7608]. Article I, Sec. 9, says: “No capitation, or other direct Tax, shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration herein before directed to be taken….” Sen. Baucus claims that the tax on the uninsured is an “indirect” excise tax — like the federal gasoline tax — that does not have to be apportioned. But Sen. Baucus is in error. An excise tax is a tax on a “thing” (such as a commodity or a license). That is why an excise tax is classified as “indirect”. People who choose not to buy insurance are not things.
    Government run universal health care plans are not one of the enumerated powers of Congress pursuant to Article 1, Section 8 and the TENTH AMENDMENT, U.S. Constitution. I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care. This legislation also provides for access by the appointees of the Obama administration of all of your personal healthcare information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide. The New Health Plan is also prohibited under the following Constitutional Amendments (Bill of Rights): The 9th Amendment that provides: “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
    The 10th Amendment states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
    There you have it. Amazingly, Congress via the media barely scratches the surface by NOT covering the all important issues of the “legality” of the aforementioned health care reform. The Health Care debate on what’s in the Bill is not much relevant except the unconstitutional means towards implementing the 1,100 plus page bureaucratic labyrinth.

    Sincerely,
