How Original

Marco Rubio has a solution for the evils of Obamacare: amend the Constitution.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) on Tuesday introduced a constitutional amendment aimed at invalidating the individual mandate to buy health insurance under Obamacare.

The text of the “Right To Refuse” amendment, according to Rubio’s office: “Congress shall make no law that imposes a tax on a failure to purchase goods or services.”

“ObamaCare is a disastrous policy that is not only destructive to job creation, it will also unleash the corrupt and scandal-ridden IRS on taxpayers simply for not buying health insurance,” Rubio said in a statement.

This is his idea of being a Constitutional “originalist”?  Seriously?

2 barks and woofs on “How Original

  1. Shorter Rubio: There are only eleven critical amendments to the Constitution: the first Ten – in the Bill of Rights – and the one I’m introducing now.

  2. The obvious end run around such an amendment would be a single-payer system. If everyone has coverage paid for by our taxes, there’s no need for anyone to “purchase” health insurance.
