How the 2010 election results will affect health care and health freedom

In what appears to be a broad backlash against Obama-era policies, U.S. voters swept Republicans into office in record numbers in last night’s election. As of this writing, Republicans had clearly taken the House but failed to win a majority in the Senate. This effectively ends the Democratic super-majority alignment among the House, Senate and White House.

So what will this mean for health-conscious consumers and medical patients? Will this result in any improvements on the health freedom front?

A clue is found in the behavior of Big Pharma and health insurance companies. Even before the election was over, they were already focusing new efforts on lobbying Republicans, according to the Wall Street Journal (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100…).

The medical industry, you seem doesn’t care whether Democrats or Republicans are in office. It can buy influence with either party. Remember, it was the Bush Administration that handed Big Pharma a Medicare drug monopoly. Obama merely expanded and extended that monopoly with Obamacare health reform.



Ballot measures challenge federal health insurance mandates

In two states — Colorado and Arizona — voters weighed in on ballot measures designed to effectively block federal mandates that will force citizens to buy health insurance (or be penalized by the IRS).

Arizona’s Proposition 106 appears to have passed, meaning that Arizona will soon find itself in a Tenth Amendment showdown with the federal governmentover whether the feds can force Arizona citizens to buy federally-mandated health insurance. (Gee, the fact that we’re even talking about this show you just how overreaching the federal government has become the days, doesn’t it?)
In Colorado, Amendment 63 appears to have been defeated. Sadly, this means the state is surrendering its citizens over to the interventions of federally-run Obamacare regulations. Colorado has apparently forgotten that all-important part of the Bill of Rights which says, “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.”
That’s the Tenth Amendment, of course. But even this amendment seems increasingly irrelevant to a federal government that chooses to ignore all the amendments in the Bill of Rights.
