“I see nowhere in the Constitution where health-care is a right.. . . I want to hear it from Obama, I want to hear it from Pelosi, about how this is about ‘We the people.’”
I like that last thing at the very end of his rant because it is so deliciously ironic that he cites a passage from the Preamble to the Constitution. From the very thing that gives the federal government the responsibility to guarantee health care to its citizens.
So what, I ask, is the argument against having, as a constitutional right, the right to health care when it is right there in the Preamble that one of the purposes of the constitution is to “promote the general welfare” of the people.
“promote the general Welfare”
“This, and the next part of the Preamble, are the culmination of everything that came before it — the whole point of having tranquility, justice, and defense was to promote the general welfare — to allow every state and every citizen of those states to benefit from what the government could provide.”
