Some fellow activists and I have created a new blog called The Committee for Constitutional Health Care Reform. Here is our purpose as stated on the “About” page:
The Committee for Constitutional Health Care Reform is a group of conservative, libertarian and constitutionalist activists from many professions who believe that the Constitution is being left out of much of the current debate about health care reform. Many people, left, right and center, have grand ideas about how they would like the federal government to reform health care, but they fail to ask the fundamental question, “Does the Constitution authorize this?”
In some cases they neglect to ask this question, but all too often they don’t really care. For many, the Constitution is a dead letter that now serves as mere window dressing. They have long since ceased to concern themselves with the bounds placed on the United States government by the Constitution. They assume its power is unlimited and act accordingly.
We at the Committee for Constitutional Health Care Reform still hold to the quaint idea that the Constitution really matters and our elected officials ought to actually be bound by it. We intend to re-inject constitutional considerations into the health care reform debate by addressing many of the new reform proposals from a constitutionalist/enumerated powers/Tenth Amendment/original intent stand point.
The website is still under construction, but please take a look and check back frequently. Leave a comment or two if you are so inclined.
Long range, the plan is to convert the blog into its own unique website.
