Replace All Federal Taxes on Income with the Fair Tax Act , HR 25

Compulsory Healthcare is Unconstitutional

Compulsory Health Insurance is Blatantly Unconstitutional
The Federal Government has no such power of taxation’



The United States Constitution Article 1 Section 8, states; "The Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes, Duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States" The Constitution clearly did not allow a tax to be laid on an individual.

The 16th Amendment removed the enumeration and apportionment clause (allegedly) from the individual. But, it only granted the Federal Government the power to collect taxes based on “income” from whatever source derived.

Article 1, section 8 does not allow for a tax to be laid on any individual or corporation to be based on “public policies”, such as legislation to mandate a compulsory requirement to purchase health insurance”

The only thing that the 16th amendment did was to allow the federal government to tax income without apportionment’ “The Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration"

For the federal government to mandate compulsory health insurance, they would have to first amend the Constitution!

There are those in the socialist camp who will say things like “most states have mandated auto insurance” This argument is ridiculous, because you must secure a drivers license to drive and therefore the states have determined that being granted a drivers license is a privilege granted by statute. This would mean that having a functional set of lungs or a heartbeat is a privilege granted by government, and therefore they must be insured.

A mandate to acquire health insurance cannot be called an excise, impost, or income. The government has no power to levy this as a tax, and no other such powers granted to hang their hat on!

They are not trying to conceal the fact that it is a tax, this is apparent based on the fact that it will be enforced by IRS.

I am going keep this simple, as that is probably the only way some might get the point! To James Hodges. We put up with medicare because we are all litttle pigs with our snout in the trough! And furthermore medicare is not a an individual tax mandated on us, do you get it! its called apples and oranges! To Chiefcook. Politicians do not follow the constitution because we let them! There is a bill in Congress called the Liberty Amendment! I sent it to all of my so-called liberty loving associates and was appalled at the response I got. The Liberty Amendment would fully restore the constitution, but do you know what my liberty lovin friends said about it? Everyone one of them found where their snouts were in the trough and found it not palletible to their taste to give up their place. The reason that politicians violate the constitution is because many of us are enjoying the trivial comforts their illegal actions provide us.

Do you comprehend what you read? Or, do you just respond without thinking? What does medicare which is strictly federal government have to do with this post? The subject is challenging federal mandates on the states. "Think" then respond.
On the subject of thinking, politicians don't follow the constitution. Why not? Because people today are guttless, they won't stand up, they know it is wrong, but, as I said before, they are guttless.

Since when do the politicians follow the Constitution?

So why do we put up with medicare?

Would it not follow then that the "fines" or "penalties" being planned for the IRS to levy are also unconstitutional?

The argument that “most states have mandated auto insurance” is much easier defeated by pointing out that it is the states which are mandating auto insurance coverage and not the federal government. The states derive this authority from the 10th amendment ("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")
