The worrisome thing about President Obama is that he was once a senior lecturer (accounted as a tenured professor) at the University of Chicago Law School and taught regular courses, not a full load since he was involved in other enterprises having to do with government or other activities, perhaps community-organizing. Obama referred to himself as a "constitutional law professor" during his campaign for the presidency.
That's where the rubber hits the road. Was Obama a professor who was about as bright as a watermelon with regard to the Constitution, or did he then and does he now understand the Constitution and has decided it is too anachronistic or inconvenient to his agenda to be of any importance? During his campaign, he made it plain that the Constitution was remiss in that it did not allow for the proper redistribution of wealth, for instance.
Obama has added the new dimension called the czars in order to bypass a recognizable oligarchy in preference to un-elected or even congressionally un-investigated shadowy figures making key decisions affecting everything from oil-drilling to healthcare. The Cabinet secretaries are all in place but the czars call the shots.
Obama has circumvented the Constitution in other ways. The big deal currently is Obama's budget. Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution: All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.... Section 8: The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defence [sic]....
Obama knows his "budget" is not worth the reams of paper on which it's printed, especially since the House has already routinely passed budgets on which Senate Majority Leader Reid has not for nearly two years allowed a vote. He can blame the Senate republicans for stopping the process even though the democrats control the Senate (and controlled both legislative bodies 2009-11) and could pass a budget tomorrow. All the president can do is sign or veto, something that won't happen before the elections in November.
The president's most recent un-Constitutional power grab concerning the contraception issue and the churches is a First Amendment violation, but it's also a Tenth Amendment issue: "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." The president is not empowered by the Constitution to mandate what citizens and entities such as businesses must purchase. That is a power/privilege granted to the people.
The president can't even make people get flu shots, much less affect far more important items. Obama has directed employers and insurance companies and people, all as individual entities, to do what he says with respect to insurance and what it must cover. He's even mandated/regulated that insurance companies provide services at no charge, meaning that the taxpayers will pick up the tab. This is an egregious violation of the Constitution, about which he's supposed to be an expert.
Last year, the most egregious violation had to do with his slaughter of Libyans in a war he conducted by executive order when the Constitution is plain in Section I, Article 8, that only Congress can declare war, though Congress itself expanded rightly or wrongly on that provision with the War Powers Act, which Obama also monstrously violated.
On the basis of his presidency vis-à-vis the Constitution, Obama the Constitutional scholar has either proven his abject stupidity or he has an agenda which is demonstrably anti-American.

I wonder why it is that you NEVER reference anything other than left wing political rags. MSLSD, salon, bluffington post, etc. Since when have you ever read or linked ANYTHING from a conservative source? You always insult anyone that links anything to a conservative source. So much for practicing what you preach. You should be proud of your open mind. In fact, you are so open minded, your brain has fallen out.
Probably because most conservative sources are nothing but a bunch of bullsh*t. Didn't you ever read the article that shows that people who watch Faux News are dumber than rocks? And before that Republican b*tch jumps on this again, occasionally Faux News does get it right.

Occasionally.

Shockingly Stupid Republicans: What's the Matter with Mississippi?

Bill Maher noted on the show: This was filmed in Mississippi. They did not cherry-pick these people. This is not meant to make fun of anybody. They did not seek out people who look like rednecks. They showed one guy who didn't have teeth. They had to cut out a lot of people who didn't have teeth.

So do we but that didn't answer my question.. Why does Canada discriminate against the poor when they are a single payer system??

How do the poor suffer? Many Provinces now provide free health care to it's citizens. The result is higher taxes, but well worth it as the single payer system benefits everybody as a whole.
The poor probably get more coverage than most, since the government would subsidize them for medication and other necessities.
The disadvantage would be that the main health care system doesn't cover everything, so a supplementary insurance would be necessary to completely cover you. Like Blue Cross. Many seniors are entitled to both for free, and often employers will offer this as an incentive. Either way, it is still quite affordable.
http://www.pnhp.org/facts/what-is-single-paye...
The real question is why is there a need for insurance at all?? To me a single payer is just that.. If taxes go up so be it.. I can understand having to pay for a facelift or dentures but not the extraction of the bad teeth themselves..

Get this, "Nym8636" whatever his name is, her number one fan. He's the guy that is on every thread proclaiming to be "Hispanic American" and against illegal immigration. It's like his catch phrase now. lol

Any, talk about the irony. He has no clue how his hero really feels about him. This guy is a real dufus. I mean, talk about cluless.
