Thanks for that, but I have some questions. I was not able to read the original bill not passed and have only managed to read about a quarter of the
one that has been passed in a linear fashion, but have sort skipped around with it, as is often the case when dealing with a tautological nature of
legislation, so I am by no means an expert on the Bill itself, other than it seems to me relatively certain, that Congress has no authority to force
people to buy insurance policies. My questions are these, did the original bill stay within that jurisdiction? What is meant by health care
supported by payroll?
There seems to be a long line of American Jurisprudence that holds the doctrine of informed consent is a fundamental right of people, even if this
committee does have jurisdiction over health, does this mean they can dictate how we handle our health care? The doctrine of informed consent has
been used to refuse medical treatment, and the SCOTUS has upheld this even if such refusal meant certain death. So, if this committee has
jurisdiction over health, does that mean they have jurisdiction over my health?
