On the eve of the Supreme Court oral arguments in the biggest constitutional case in decades, ObamaCare, Congress has taken steps to repeal another component of the unconstitutional law.
As AFP reported, “The bill, adopted by lawmakers 223-181, including seven Democrats, would scrap a 15-member panel established to control costs for elderly beneficiaries of the government-run Medicare program.”
This bill would remove the particularly dangerous healthcare rationing panel from ObamaCare. The true danger of this panel comes from the seemingly innocuous purpose of controlling costs.
This “board of unelected bureaucrats to control costs,” as House Majority leader Eric Cantor calls it, would have dangerous power over individual health care decisions because the easiest way to control cost is to cut services.
This means your personal medical decisions will be in the hands of unelected government bureaucrats rather than you and your doctor.
It is just one of the many dangers of ObamaCare, and this important vote by Congress is just one of the many steps toward undoing this pro-abortion law that stands as an affront to our constitutional liberty.
The bill now moves to the Senate, though I am not sure anyone trusts the pro-ObamaCare Senate any more than a 15 member healthcare rationing panel to do the right thing.
While, as Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel, has repeatedly said, this bill will ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court when it hears the case next week, it is critical that we dismantle every piece of the unconstitutional law along they way.
