The Health Care Reform law that recently passed included a single fatal flaw: instead of being physically installed in our constitution, along with the rights to free abortions and nonstop sodomy, it was merely passed as a “law” that could potentially be repealed. That probably won’t happen so long as Dr. Obama can veto things; but, instead of just giving the new Death Panel Czar the key to the Treasury, the law put Congress in charge of appropriating the money to pay for various important Health Care dealies! And this is not subject to veto, apparently? There was no “Schoolhouse Rock” on the topic, so we wouldn’t know. Anyway, now many Republicans are just running on a “we will not pay for this health care, even though the law requires us to” platform, which should go over great with an electorate that has discovered that it loves the law after all.
