Questioning the Constitutionality of Health Insurance Reform

The following is a letter I sent the Chicago Tribune and it will be printed in the Tuesday,

March 30, 2010 issue.

 It is unreasonable to assume that one individual will never need health care services.  The Constitution does not protect the right of individuals to sponge off their fellow citizens. If an insurance pool is constituted for the benefit of  individuals and not for the benefit of stock holders and if it is to be financially viable, it must have everyone in the pool, rich, poor, healthy and sick, young and old.  Since individuals move freely from state to state, it is an interstate issue.  Republicans want tort reform of frivolous suits, let them consider this kind of threat as the most politically frivolous of claims.  They need to stop playing games and decide to participate in governing this great nation.
