The Department of Health and Human Services is unconstitutional. It’s nothing more than a trillion dollar a year rape of the American people’s labor to fund more welfare and programs that financially support sin and the death culture.
Last week, under the administration of the impostor president squatting in the White House, a new regulation was announced which would “require virtually all employers to offer insurance coverage of sterilization, abortifacients and contraceptives without deductibles or co-pays in their employee plans by Aug. 1. Churches are exempt, but not religiously inspired hospitals, schools and other charities that hire outside their faith tradition.”
Exempt: houses of worship and their employees, as well as other institutions whose primary purpose is to promote religious belief. Where this unconstitutional “order” will hit hard are religious-affiliated hospitals, colleges and social service agencies.
DHS is headed up by yet another female who oozes evil: Kathleen Sebelius. She joins the ranks of Hillary Clinton, Condelezza Rice, Janet Butch Reno and Jan ‘the man’ Napolitano. Sebelius never misses an opportunity to advocate and fund the killing of unborn babies, which is why Obama/Soetoro selected her for that position. Of course, the U.S. Senate confirmed her appointment including phony conservatives like former Sen. Sam Brownback. What a hypocrite. Here is the roll call vote back in 2009. Sebelius claims to be Catholic. She is not. She should be denied entrance to any Catholic church because you cannot support killing unborn babies and claim to be Catholic.
But then again, 54% of Catholics allegedly voted for the other champion of killing babies: Obama/Soetoro in 2008. They slapped God right in the face for false promises of “hope and change”. Tell that to the millions of dead babies dumped into medical containers since the usurper was “elected.”Catholics also spit in God’s face for Hillary Clinton: “In the 2008 Democratic nominating contest, Catholics have emerged as key members of Hillary Clinton’s base. Of the 23 primaries for which adequate data exist, Hillary Clinton did better among white Catholics than among white Protestants in 16. The results in Pennsylvania’s primary on April 22 were startling: she won 63 percent of the overall white vote–72 percent of the white Catholic vote compared to only 59 percent of the white Protestant vote.” Clinton is pro baby killing and is quite vocal in her support of sexual deviants (sodomites and lesibans), yet “Catholics” in droves voted for her in the 2008 primaries. How shameful.
Archbishop Timothy Dolan, said: ‘You bet we got a disagreement. ‘The government doesn’t have the right to butt into the internal governance and teachings of the church. It’s not about contraception. It’s about the right of conscience. This is not a Catholic issue, it’s an American issue,’ he added. ‘We’re strong on this issue of conscience, and that’s what’s at stake here.” Already, Bishop Robert Lynch of St. Petersburg, Florida, has said he will drop coverage for dioceasan workers rather than comply. Agree or disagree with the Catholic faith, but their Catholic Relief Services and Catholic Charities not only do a wonderful job, they also employ 70,000 people.
Of course, Archbishop is absolutely right: the General Government aka the Federal Government has no constitutional authority. All employers in this country as well as religious organizations should tell Sebilious they will refuse to obey her order. It doesn’t matter the serial vacationer in chief has “given” a one year extension on enforcement, it’s unconstitutional – just like “Obamacare”.
Linder v. United States, 268 U.S. 5, 18, 45 S. Ct. 446 (1925): “Obviously, direct control of medical practice in the states is beyond the power of the federal government.”
Lambert v. Yellowly, 272 U.S. 581, 598, 47 S.Ct. 210 (1926): “It is important also to bear in mind that ‘direct control of medical practice in the States is beyond the power of the Federal Government.’ Linder v. United States, 268 U.S. 5, 18. Congress, therefore, cannot directly restrict the professional judgment of the physician or interfere with its free exercise in the treatment of disease. Whatever power exists in that respect belongs to the states exclusively.”
United States v. Anthony et al., 15 F. Supp. 553 (S.D.Cal. 1936) (June 23 1936)
Nos. 12069-12072. United States District Court, S.D. California, Central Division
“I am referring to these facts in order to indicate that we must bear in mind the purpose of the act — that the act is a borderline statute which must be interpreted in such a manner as to bring it within the constitutional power. And if we depart from it and interpret it either as attempting to regulate the disposition and sale of narcotics or attempting the regulation of medicine, we extend the act to the realm which the Supreme Court has repeatedly said the federal government cannot enter, under the penalty of unconstitutionality.
“The Linder Case (Linder v. United States  268 U.S. 5, 45 S.Ct. 446, 449, 69 L.Ed. 819, 39 A.L.R. 229) is very important. We all seem to agree, whether we read it alike or not, that it determines this case, so far as the law is concerned. I wish to refer to it for the present only for the purpose of pointing out that the moment we assume that this act regulates the sale within the state of narcotics and that it aims to regulate the practice of medicine, we must hold it unconstitutional.
“In the Linder Case, Mr. Justice McReynolds, speaking for the court, made this observation: “Obviously, direct control of medical practice in the states is beyond the power of the federal government.”
DHS, although an unconstitutional cabinet is a “part of the U.S. government.” Sebelius’ “order” is in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution in that it attempts to force the practice of medcine on private companies as well as religious affiliated hospitals, colleges and social service agencies – even if it goes against their moral conscience. The Republicans controlled Congress for years under a Republican president (Bush, Jr.). More than ample time to live up to their worn out campaign slogan: “we want smaller government” by abolishing unconstitutional cabinets and agencies. They did nothing and here we are with yet another legal war.
Will there be lawsuits? No doubt, but why should any employer or religious affilated organization have to spend their precious cash flow on more lawyers to fight such evil coming out of Washington, DC? Why? Because the people of this country continue to elect immoral, corrupt, power hungry individuals who believe the General Government must be completely totalitarian and the states nothing more than doormats to wipe their feet on. The Catholic Church should tell Sebelius they will not obey because the only one they serve is God.
Outright stealing the fruits of your labor for this – with the interest slapped on our backs since it’s all borrowed “money” while the Republican controlled House does nothing:
1- U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
$1.8 Mil To Treat STDs In Guatemala
2- U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Another $845 Mil For Fraud-Infested Welfare Program
