How the Democrats Screwed the Conservatives
When Republicans began to work on healthcare, they are discovering they are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. Conservatives follow these two principles: If it is not in the Constitution, then it is covered by the 10th Amendment: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Healthcare was never in the Constitution so it fell under the tenth.
However, the people’s belief that they had a Constitutional right to healthcare was the train that had already left the station. Now Conservatives were caught between government health care program or going against everything they believed in. Beyond that, the people back home, who were not so ideological, had let them know they had sent them to do something. They were tired of the bickering.
So either Conservatives suck it up, find something they can live with or strap on, not only their own suicide belts, but also fit all their colleagues with one.
Screwed by them damn Dems.
