"Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.): "I think we had to have someone say this is where you can go without limiting your criminal liability or civil liability.For instance, the question is brought up, pay for all of the health care for the people in the Gulf. No, but Ithink those who lost their job, then lost their health care would be legitimate."
Real Clear Politics

That didn't take long, did it? The President forces BP to create a slush...I'm sorry, trust fund and almost overnight we hear justifications for its use to fund health care. It starts with paying for the health care of laid off workers in the Gulf but it will expand from there.

How can this happen? The government shuts down drilling in the Gulf and then extorts money out of a private company to pay for it. It's not even the government doing it, it's the President, acting on his own authority. When did he become King?

We must decide; are we a nation of laws, with the Constitution as the foundation, or have we become a nation with a ruler that sets the laws to satisfy his own ends?

The Constitution gives the power of the purse to the Congress. The President does not have any authority to create pools of money under his direction, managed by his political cronies with the title of
Independent Claims Administrator. This is nothing more than the Chicago way. This money, ostensibly for the purpose of paying laid off workers, will be used as a source of funds to bribe and cajole. The supporters and causes friendly to the administration will get their cut while those that oppose it will find themselves hungry and cold, rejected as unworthy of government beneficence.

The mob has taken control of our country.
