NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Is a health insurance policy a right, a privilege or a contract?
If a right, then where did this right originate? If privilege, then for who is the privilege instilled?
Is it not a contract? If I fail to pay, the contract is broken. If the company fails to pay out a claim, it is broken.
Furthermore, is not the policy called a product by the company? If a product, then it is property? President Obama, the week of Oct. 19, claimed as much in his speech saying, “this is a good product,” referring to the Affordable Health Care Act.
John Locke circa 1690: Yet every man has a “property” in his own “person.” This, nobody has any right to but himself. The “labour” of his body and the “work” of his hands are properly his.
Supreme Court to the New York State Bar 1921: It is not the right of property which is protected by the right to property. Property per se has no rights; but the individual has three great rights, life, liberty, property.
President James Madison: Government is instituted to protect property of every sort, nor is property secure under it, where the property is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class for the service of the rest.
Government seized our health care property.
Supreme Court 1795: No man would become a member of a community in which he could not enjoy the fruits of his honest labor and industry. The legislature had no authority to make an act divesting one citizen and vesting it in another, without just compensation. It is inconsistent with the principles of reason, justice and moral rectitude; it is contrary to the letter and spirit of the Constitution.
How are Americans being justly compensated for the fruits of my labor through Obamacare?
