Individual Rights: the Price of the So-Called ‘Affordable Health Care Act’

While investigating the provisions in the “affordable health care” bill that will inevitably force me, and millions of others like myself who choose not to purchase health insurance, I recently asked a friend who is an Obama supporter about the bill’s details. He referred me to healthcare.gov, which contained much useful and insightful information, including the fact that getting 8 hours of sleep a night is actually a healthy thing to do, and that hospitals and clinics are actually places that people can go to get immunizations, prescriptions and primary care. It seems that the writer of this website was an obvious graduate of DUH University.

Recently however, there have many court cases challenging the Obama administration’s abuse of the commerce clause in the Constitution. These court cases challenge the Obama administration’s use of the commerce clause to force individuals into purchasing health insurance as well as each individual state’s right to oppose the federal legislation.

There is also a provision in the health care bill which caps the salaries on doctors and the amount of money that they can charge each individual patient. This in return will provoke fewer people to spend years in medical school and spend thousands of their own money to become doctors if they aren’t going to get as much as they once did…not to mention all of the current doctors who might choose not to practice medicine, or move somewhere to practice medicine in a more free economy.

I’m no economist, but I did take an economics class in college, which obviously makes me more qualified to create a health care bill than most of the members of the Obama administration. If there are fewer doctors in America’s health care system with more patients constantly being added into that equation, then it doesn’t take a Nobel Prize-winning economist to figure out that the particular equation does not add up too well for the best interest of the American people.
