Thank you. So, as they’re trying to… we’re approaching 9:30 soon, any… any minute or minu busy... and that vote’s supposed to take place. And you look at the world, what’s going on… in together, we’re causing many to be divided. For many are being divided through foreign policy Russians… He’s telling: Great Britain’s going to be upset soon. So, there’s something coming saying: Syria. And, of course, the Israelis… Israel being the heart… I mean, that region explod so, we have a critical vote taking place tonight in the US House. And if you watch C-SPAN, a have their one minute… the ones “for” are very convincing. They use passion, emotion. The o passion, emotion. And they come up with numbers and make statements. And who is speaking part of the broadcast… I will disclose to you the Truth. I have discerned this today.

You know, when you look at a bill, about 2700 pages… whether or not that bill makes sense, w more than 10%. When you take that information, you infuse it with what’s going on in the Uni with what’s going on around the world… and through my Gift, I realize that this is a very dang dangerous bill. And it’s mc2 not more than 10% out of… out of 100%. So I… I started discern about the benefit?” Not much of a benefit, when you consider the factors of time and when you not being taken into consideration. And the Father says that this bill will create a much, much gets passed, potentially move the US closer to bankruptcy, impacting their credit rating. See, th government of the United States is trying to make health care available to everyone with no ad in place. There is none. Says this is the major problem. Where I learned, you know, when you manage the medical hospital network system in the US or any country… but we’re going to fo I’m saying on average, the hospitals are managed effectively not more than 10% out of 100%. with, poorly managed. He says there’s going to be too much of a burden, a workload, financial the government should not be the police for health care. It should not be the ones to do a takeo will say, you know, people are saying, “Well, it’s a takeover.” It is a takeover. It’s 100% a take

So I asked, I said, “Father, why is it that the government should not pass this bill?” Again, He to regulate health care. He says the cost to set this structure up would be prohibitive. Then I lea are making the decisions for this bill does not have more than a 10% understanding of the over And so, I heard a senator talking about dictatorship… dictatorship… it’s not a dictatorship. An And I was told that the health care reform bill would mostly support a dictatorship managemen used the word “regime” with me.

So, the third round of questions… I asked about the patients, “How is it that they’re not going care bill is based on essential services. They way that it would be practiced out, would be the s not really based on preventative, although they speak of preventative. But that’s not true. He sa deprive others of treatment, determined by a doctor, a committee… and this is what disturbed costs. In other words, patients will not always get the best possible treatment, particularly if th say, “Not so.” But I go with what I’ve been told, what I’ve discerned. And it is so. And so, the really based on essential services, is… this is the important point: As the deficit climbs… beca services will be cut back. So, it’s going to get to a point, even essential services will not be aw money’s not going to be made available.

So, I went on to the fourth round of questions… looking out for the doctors, their interests. An I’m surprised that we’re not seeing 1,000, 2… 3,000 doctors protesting. Where, through this b be impacted in a big way, particularly if the deficit climbs. Father says that the doctors will ha cases, they will not have a voice to express serious concerns. Their voice will be received on d go after doctors aggressively who make mistakes. And it will be a system where you work lon less financial compensation. Doctors would be under more stress. You see, it’s tough to practic States. Some doctors pay 100,000… even more, 150,000… per year for medical insurance. Th they got to pay their expenses if they rent a place. They have staff. And then, they pay themsel And, can you imagine, you are a medical student coming out of Harvard and you’ve got mayb student loans? See, the system has to look at the existing system. Why is it that there’s only a 1 management for the average hospital in the United States? That’s what we need to look at. Un and work to correct it. You don’t take it over without having a structure to properly regulate th

So, the fifth… the nurses… what else is new? I know in Canada the nurses are worked hard. T

And this will only get worse in the States. He says the system will be more disorganized, causi someone, a doctor, somebody will go in and say that’s not true. And they’ll say, “Bryan? No, B Truth.” They’ll make that statement without knowing that, through my Gift, I know them bette And I know why they make the statement. Father says there will be an increase of nurses facin could be increased rate of anxiety, paranoia, depression, stress-related breakdowns. And you g on in the United States… that they’re looking to cut back on essential services in the United St small towns. Schools are being closed. So now you’ve got overcrowding of students being tran got the stress levels going up. And you got people worried that there’s no police force. I just lo like, division is being created among so many. Conflicts are being triggered. And it’s not nece

The sixth point… I asked, I said, “Father, what about the impact on the private sector, business private sector will be forced to pay higher insurance premiums. We’re talking about the corpor people. They’re going to be paying much higher premiums over time. And it’s going to force m And it’s going to trigger more unemployment. And companies that were thinking of starting u differently. Because what they’ll do, it will encourage employers to hire part-time workers ins United States is going to be a land leading towards part-time workers. And the Father says, it w rates of unemployment. So, you’ve got all this going on… the higher rates of unemployment. Y the United States. You create more instability in the Middle East. Where is this heading to? W you’ve got a lot of people out of work in the US. Where are they… where are they going to go wine in the park? Or would they just join the military? Would they be forced to join the militar going on domestically is being set up for something to take place internationally.

The seventh… I asked about research and development. Father says research and development focus on cures. It focuses more on having a patient live longer and to be more comfortable. He more difficult for researchers, in general, to get funding. He says it’s a bill that does not encou responsibility for the researchers. I’ve always discerned that the scientific community should h where anyone can go into that general reporting base and see what research has already been d of the world. So, when government funds or private funds are being requested for research, pe research, through this vehicle, if that research has already been done, and what were the results reform bill will generate more waste money.

So I asked, going on to the eighth round of questions… “Why more waste money?” And so, I says, I’m going to take you over here now. And I said, “Okay.” And He says it’s designed to ta designed to take over the health care system and the banking system at the same time. He says to have less regulatory power over the banks, other banks, is very dangerous. I was told that a banking system equals a weaker economic system, domestically and internationally. Where, ba it will not be able to support this health care reform bill. And this is what most senators are not coming up with the abortion issue: “Well, we don’t want to vote for this bill because of the abo for someone to have an abortion,” instead of looking at the fundamental issue, the economy, th breakdown of foreign relationships. So I asked, I said, “Father, why… why should this bill not wasn’t thought out carefully. And so, people are wondering, “What should I think?” and sayin And so, I knew there was about 2,700 pages. I said, “Father, what do the senators need to focu should they read that report? The health care reform bill?” He says they all should start with pa should read page number 97. Then, they should read page number 44. Then, they should go to page 587. And then to page 680. And then, they should go to 681. And then 741. Then 987. Th And lastly, page 231. Some of you are saying, “Are you going to go to 1,000 pages?” Nope, la

this question: On which, what area is this reform bill going to harm? And so, you need to focu The young American generation The scientists The doctors The nurses The teachers The insurance corporations The blue collar workers The large corporations The small businesses The US Treasury The Government of the United States.

Father… He explained to me and I learned from Him… He says… He says those who are supp one have the courage to do the right thing? Or is… or is it the courage that they have to do the have courage in both areas. He says that those who support this bill do not support protecting t Thank you.

RE: sue against the constitutionality of the federal mandate that individuals purchase health in TO ATTORNEY GENERAL,

Sunday the House of Representatives enacted "the government takeover of health care that wil

cost of premiums, and force Americans onto government-run insurance”.

Today at least 15 states are currently pursuing litigation against the health bill: Virginia, Alaba Pennsylvania, Texas, South Carolina, Washington, Utah, North Dakota, South Dakota, Michig Louisiana.

The "Constitution does not permit Congress to enact any mandate for individuals to purchase a insurance."

This is a critical moment in our nation's history. Defeating the individual insurance mandate in aspect of the healthcare bill. With your help, we can make that happen. I urge you to get on bo stake.

The American people owe Attorney General Cuccinelli a debt of gratitude for taking the initia egregious assault on individual liberty in a generation." Won’t you follow in his footsteps and help stop this bill from going into effect? Sincerely, CORA ROTUSSNEY 83.34 LEFFERTS BLVD #5E QUEENS, NY 11415

I believe the recently passed health care bill will increase the burden on small & large business us working hard to afford overpriced health care should be burdened with more support and en the answer to our health care problem is in controlling costs not blanket coverage. We are alrea indigent funds and medicaid. As a native New Mexican who has worked two and sometimes three jobs to keep my family he adult life, I have always taken offense to supporting those people who want a free hand out fro care need to be fixed, I agree, but the bill that has passed infringes on my rights as an honest, h American. The bill needs to challenged by every state in our union. I am asking for you help to health care bill. Th HC bill is no good. Too much back door dealings. We really don't know what is in the bill. gone? If someone would stand up and "speak out" and stay standing up on this honesty/transpe there way to the top in politics. People are tired of working fo the Govt. We need to prop up ou the good of the Country, and not the good for political groups, special interests, political partie the rubber meets the road is no more than a payoff. Wait and see!

I implore you to please join the Attorneys general from 13 states who have sued the federal go the landmark health care overhaul bill is unconstitutional just seven minutes after President Ba law. This federal mandate is unfunded and with cause further financial crisis to our state econo already in an approximately $1,000,000,000.00 deficit. So beyond the constitutionality issues o MEXICO JUST CAN NOT AFFORD IT! I also ask that you support legislation similar to wha specifies that its residents cannot be required to purchase health insurance. Here are a few reasons why we oppose this legislation.

1) IT IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION - IT IS NOT A RIGHT! IT WAS INITIALLY PROV A FRINGE BENEFIT OR LATER TO SENIORS AS PART OF MEDICARE, ETC. NOT ON CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATION, IT IS IN FACT UNCONSTITUTIONAL ON SEVERA US GOVERNMENT CAN NOT COMPEL CITIZENS TO BUY A PRODUCT, MUCH LESS REFUSAL TO BUY IT. (B) I BELIEVE IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE EQUAL PROTECTI OFFERS SPECIAL EXEMPTIONS AND BREAKS TO CERTAIN GROUPS INCLUDING: NEBRASKA, LOUISIANA CITIZENS, AMISH AND CHRISTIAN SCIENCE RELIGIONS SENIOR CONGRESSIONAL STAFF WHO WROTE THE BILL & EXEMPTED THEMSEL

2) WE HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN GOVERNMENT RUN PROGRAMS. THEY'RE PERF ABYSMAL WITH: MEDICAID, FANNIE/FREDDIE MAC, SOCIAL SECURITY, USPS, C ETC. ETC.

3) GOVERNMENT MANDATES ON PRICES WILL DECREASE PROFIT FOR DOCTOR PEOPLE FROM ENTERING THE MEDICAL FIELD. LESS PROVIDERS LEADS TO RAT THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE SURVEY OF DOCTORS RESPONDED THEM WOULD LEAVE THEIR PRACTICE RATHER THAN OPERATE UNDER THIS PL THEIR HIPPOCRATIC OATH.

4) WE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS AN EFFORT UNDERWAY TO EXTEND COVERAGE IMMIGRANTS, THUS INCREASING THE PARTICIPANTS. (FURTHER LEADS RATION EXEMPTING THEM FROM THE FINES IF THEY REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE.

5) DECREASED PROVIDERS AND INCREASED PARTICIPANTS LEADS TO RATIONE LINES, REDUCED TREATMENT DUE TO COST & ABILITY TO HANDLE THE POPUL LEADS TO INCREASED COSTS ($2,500,000,000,000.00 CURRENT ESTIMATE) THIS IS

6) ALONG WITH DISCOURAGING PEOPLE FROM ENTERING THE MEDICAL FIELD LOWERING OF ADMISSION STANDARDS TO BOLSTER ENROLLMENT IN MEDICA STANDARDS LEADS TO SUBSTANDARD HEALTH CARE.

7) ALL OTHER GOVERNMENT PLANS, INCLUDING THOSE IN CUBA, ENGLAND, C OUR EXISTING SYSTEM. WHY DO WE WANT TO EMULATE FAILURE? WHY ELSE FOR CRITICAL CARE WHEN THEIR SYSTEM FAILS THEM? (RECENTLY, CANADIA FOR HEART SURGERY. WHEN ASKED ABOUT IT - HE RESPONDED: "IT'S MY HEAL

8) MONOPOLIES (GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE), BY DEFINITION ELIMINAT IS THE ENGINE FOR INNOVATION AND NATURAL MOTIVATION TO DEVELOP CO STRATEGIES.

9) ISN'T IT OBVIOUS THAT GOVERNMENT RUN THE HEALTH CARE AND SOCIAL OF INTEREST. DO YOU REALLY WANT THE FOLKS WHO PAY YOUR RETIREMENT CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH CARE.

10) WE HAVE THE BEST HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD AND I SUPPORT CARE AS A CONCEPT. {THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD IT PAY FOR IT THEM SELVES I FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE AN EMPLOYER PROVIDED PLAN AND HAVE THE THOSE WHO CAN NOT AFFORD IT. } I JUST BELIEVE IT CAN BE DONE IN THE FRE WITH TORT REFORM, ALLOW COMPANIES TO COMPETE ACROSS STATE LINES., INSURANCE & PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES.

11) THIS TAKE OVER OF 1/6TH OF THE US ECONOMY ALSO OPENS THE DOOR FO REGULATE EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE UNDER THE AUSPICES OF HEALTH CA EAT, DRINK, RISKY BEHAVIORS, ACCESS TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT, ETC. ETC. W LEGISLATION PROVIDE FOR THE HIRING OF 16,500 NEW IRS AGENTS.

12) MANY OF US HAVE A MORAL DIRECTIVE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN ABORTION WOULD FORCE CITIZENS TO PAY FOR ABORTION UNDER THIS PLAN.

13) ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS HAVE SAID THAT THEY PLAN TO CUT THE PRO INSURANCE COMPANIES AND PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES. THIS WILL STIFL INNOVATION IN IN THE INDUSTRY AND REDUCE THE ABILITY OF THE DRUG CO DRUGS TO THE MARKET PLACE. THIS WILL UNSEAT US AS THE WORLD LEADER INDUSTRY.

14) WE CAN NOT AFFORD IT! IT IS ESTIMATED TO COST $2.5 TRILLION ($2,500,000 THIS IS SIMPLY UNSUSTAINABLE AND WILL PUT MY GREAT GRAND CHILDREN ARE EVEN BORN. EVEN THE REPORTED NUMBERS ARE QUESTIONABLE WHEN T KICKS IN IMMEDIATELY BUT THE "BENEFITS" DON'T START FOR 4 YEARS. EVEN LEGISLATION, AMERICA'S CREDIT RATING HAS BEEN ON ROPES DUE TO OUR CU BUDGET DEFICIT.

HR 4872 took five hours to read, and the reconciliation bill took 10 hours to read.

First of all my comments are this ... This bill contains massive cuts in Medicare (cuts that coul life).

Secondly, the congress exempted their selves from having to follow this bill. It's such a great b

We would like to petition you as our AG to take whatever action is legally feasible to protect N noxious fallout from this health reform legislation. We were told to be brief in our comments a we are thankful & will try to be brief. We perceive this bill to be a Frankenstein monster that w country's health care system (not without problems, but the best in the world) but bankrupt us

Mr. Michael Connelly, author, teacher, and retired constitutional attorney, said it well in an int Frank Haley on Oct. 10, '09: "It frankly scares me to death. It's not really about health care. It's to the executive branch of government." Mr. Connelly went on to describe how this bill violate 9th & 10th Amendments to the Constitution.

One of the more egregious violations involved in this legislation is the mandate to purchase th penalized. At no time in history have people in this country been forced by gov't to buy a com

apparently exempted from this mandate via sweetheart deals (e.g., Amish & Christian Scientis punished by this as will the rest of us.

Jim Burnham 4800 Samantha Ln Farmington, NM 87402 Dear Mr. Attorney General: We, Michael and Sheryl Foland, are citizens of Roswell and regis We encourage you to take any and all legal action, up to and including suing the Federal Gove of the health care reform bill by the US House on Sunday, March 21, 2010. We believe the com including forcing us to purchase "federally approved" insurance, violates our civil rights as cit Mexico. Thank you for your attention to this matter. THIS HEALTH CARE BILL IS AN ABORTION , JOIN THE OTHER AG'S IN BRINGING BILL TO THE COURTS . This is a conservative (overly conservative) approach to a long term, enormous US problem. I it should. The only logical overall solution would be some form of single payer system, cutting in the present system. But it is the best that can be had now. I find the right wing reaction (over reaction) to the health bill astonishing. I think it has very li but represents anger over their lack of power, which they think they deserve. Why are you so concerned with this? Are you testing the political waters to see if you can part attempt to torpedo the whole thing? That wouild be an error. Attorney General King, this is Retired Warrant Officer John l. Thompson. I am totally in favor the Health Care plan the President just signed. I believe this plan is not at all in keeping with a health care reform, and is bound to be a budget-killer for the American people. We are Medica know it is in need of an up-grade, it is not broken. The only thing this health care program is g of our health care, and increase our cost for a lesser quality of care. Thank you for your efforts in this regard. John Attoney General Gary King,

LaMonte B. and Marsha K. Christensen, Conservatives

Silver City, Grant County This bill will cause us to slide rapidly down the slippery slope toward increasing government c contain the biggest expansion of Medicaid since the program’s creation. They impose an unpre coverage backed by the enforcement authority of the Internal Revenue Service. They will incr nearly $2 trillion when fully implemented. They give the secretary of health and human servic for all private plans and to redefine those benefits annually. From a new health-choices commi comparative-effectiveness research, these bills create dozens of new bureaucracies, increasing All of this amounts to a lot of power over people’s lives.

3/25/2010 15:19:37

Even worse, the bill fails to solve the fundamental problems in health care. They take no serio for the health care system or for individuals. The bill will cause insurance premiums for scores who are relatively young and healthy, to go up, not down. They tighten the allowable price var that millions of people who are expecting lower costs as a result of reform will end up paying

I agree that “health care” and the system that delivers and pays for it is in need of improvement/re filled, special interest driven legislation does not even come close to doing this. It isn’t even well which is not bringing a real value to the citizens of this great country. With this in place we will lo the proper change necessary to elevate care & health.

The two largest drivers of health care cost according to the Centers for Disease Control and every cost of care (think $20 aspirin when you visit the urgent care), 2) management/treatment of behav to drive 75% of cost of care by CDC). 300,000 Americans die annually from complications relate goes in to them prior to death (heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s etc.). 40 from smoking, not to mention the hundreds of thousands in the cue. It takes a lot to treat these use death. This bill doesn’t even scratch the surface of addressing these issues. All of these issues are accountability. Think if this is how we issued car insurance, regardless of driving record and type Now add tort reform to address escalating liability insurance costs for practitioners. Poor managem owned by the Medicare/Medicaid government run system (92% of every dollar in these entities is paper, 8% to care!) New Mexico already has a pooling system, NM Health Care Alliance, all New Mexicans can appl participate on an income scaled system that gives them access to United, Lovelace, BCBS, and Pr employed low income individuals will get their coverage for free!

I urge you to please join the Attorney generals from 13 states who have sued the federal gover 2010, claiming the landmark health care overhaul bill is unconstitutional just seven minutes af signed it into law. This federal mandate is unfunded and with cause further financial crisis to o budget is already in an approximately $1,000,000,000.00 deficit. So beyond the constitutionali NEW MEXICO JUST CAN NOT AFFORD IT! I also ask that you support legislation similar specifies that its residents cannot be required to purchase health insurance. Here are a few reasons why we oppose this legislation.

1) IT IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION - IT IS NOT A RIGHT! IT WAS INITIALLY PROV A FRINGE BENEFIT OR LATER TO SENIORS AS PART OF MEDICARE, ETC. NOT ON CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATION, IT IS IN FACT UNCONSTITUTIONAL ON SEVERA US GOVERNMENT CAN NOT COMPEL CITIZENS TO BUY A PRODUCT, MUCH LESS REFUSAL TO BUY IT. (B) I BELIEVE IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE EQUAL PROTECTI OFFERS SPECIAL EXEMPTIONS AND BREAKS TO CERTAIN GROUPS INCLUDING:

NEBRASKA, LOUISIANA CITIZENS, AMISH AND CHRISTIAN SCIENCE RELIGIONS SENIOR CONGRESSIONAL STAFF WHO WROTE THE BILL & EXEMPTED THEMSEL

2) WE HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN GOVERNMENT RUN PROGRAMS. THEY'RE PERF ABYSMAL WITH: MEDICAID, FANNIE/FREDDIE MAC, SOCIAL SECURITY, USPS, C ETC. ETC.

3) GOVERNMENT MANDATES ON PRICES WILL DECREASE PROFIT FOR DOCTOR PEOPLE FROM ENTERING THE MEDICAL FIELD. LESS PROVIDERS LEADS TO RAT THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE SURVEY OF DOCTORS RESPONDED THEM WOULD LEAVE THEIR PRACTICE RATHER THAN OPERATE UNDER THIS PL THEIR HIPPOCRATIC OATH.

4) WE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS AN EFFORT UNDERWAY TO EXTEND COVERAGE IMMIGRANTS, THUS INCREASING THE PARTICIPANTS. (FURTHER LEADS RATION EXEMPTING THEM FROM THE FINES IF THEY REFUSE TO PARTICIPATE.

5) DECREASED PROVIDERS AND INCREASED PARTICIPANTS LEADS TO RATIONE LINES, REDUCED TREATMENT DUE TO COST & ABILITY TO HANDLE THE POPUL LEADS TO INCREASED COSTS ($2,500,000,000,000.00 CURRENT ESTIMATE) THIS IS

6) ALONG WITH DISCOURAGING PEOPLE FROM ENTERING THE MEDICAL FIELD LOWERING OF ADMISSION STANDARDS TO BOLSTER ENROLLMENT IN MEDICA STANDARDS LEADS TO SUBSTANDARD HEALTH CARE.

7) ALL OTHER GOVERNMENT PLANS, INCLUDING THOSE IN CUBA, ENGLAND, C OUR EXISTING SYSTEM. WHY DO WE WANT TO EMULATE FAILURE? WHY ELSE FOR CRITICAL CARE WHEN THEIR SYSTEM FAILS THEM? (RECENTLY, CANADIA FOR HEART SURGERY. WHEN ASKED ABOUT IT - HE RESPONDED: "IT'S MY HEAL

8) MONOPOLIES (GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE), BY DEFINITION ELIMINAT IS THE ENGINE FOR INNOVATION AND NATURAL MOTIVATION TO DEVELOP CO STRATEGIES.

9) ISN'T IT OBVIOUS THAT GOVERNMENT RUN THE HEALTH CARE AND SOCIAL OF INTEREST. DO YOU REALLY WANT THE FOLKS WHO PAY YOUR RETIREMENT CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH CARE.

10) WE HAVE THE BEST HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD AND I SUPPORT CARE AS A CONCEPT. {THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD IT PAY FOR IT THEM SELVES I FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE AN EMPLOYER PROVIDED PLAN AND HAVE THE THOSE WHO CAN NOT AFFORD IT. } I JUST BELIEVE IT CAN BE DONE IN THE FRE WITH TORT REFORM, ALLOW COMPANIES TO COMPETE ACROSS STATE LINES., INSURANCE & PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES.

11) THIS TAKE OVER OF 1/6TH OF THE US ECONOMY ALSO OPENS THE DOOR FO

REGULATE EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE UNDER THE AUSPICES OF HEALTH CA EAT, DRINK, RISKY BEHAVIORS, ACCESS TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT, ETC. ETC. W LEGISLATION PROVIDE FOR THE HIRING OF 16,500 NEW IRS AGENTS.

12) MANY OF US HAVE A MORAL DIRECTIVE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN ABORTION WOULD FORCE CITIZENS TO PAY FOR ABORTION UNDER THIS PLAN.

13) ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS HAVE SAID THAT THEY PLAN TO CUT THE PRO INSURANCE COMPANIES AND PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES. THIS WILL STIFL INNOVATION IN IN THE INDUSTRY AND REDUCE THE ABILITY OF THE DRUG CO DRUGS TO THE MARKET PLACE. THIS WILL UNSEAT US AS THE WORLD LEADER INDUSTRY.

14) WE CAN NOT AFFORD IT! IT IS ESTIMATED TO COST $2.5 TRILLION ($2,500,000 THIS IS SIMPLY UNSUSTAINABLE AND WILL PUT MY GREAT GRAND CHILDREN ARE EVEN BORN. EVEN THE REPORTED NUMBERS ARE QUESTIONABLE WHEN T KICKS IN IMMEDIATELY BUT THE "BENEFITS" DON'T START FOR 4 YEARS. EVEN LEGISLATION, AMERICA'S CREDIT RATING HAS BEEN ON ROPES DUE TO OUR CU BUDGET DEFICIT.

15) HIDDEN IN THE LEGISLATION ARE MANY FEDERAL MANDATES THAT OVER OUR NATIONAL ECONOMY, INCLUDING THE HIJACKING OF STUDENT LOANS TH HIGHER LOAN COSTS TO STUDENTS WITH INFLATED INTEREST RATES. THIS GO WILL FURTHER DAMAGE OUR PRIVATE SECTOR BANKING INDUSTRY AND IS M BANKING SYSTEM UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, CON OF OUR FOUNDING FATHERS. Sincerely, Angela L.

I was ill for twenty years with a misdiagnosed illness. After twenty years, a doctor finally foun from silver dental fillings, whcih are 50% mercury. This illness devastated my immune system many drugs, medications, and chemicals. The traditional medical community was never able to medical community could not even figure out what was wrong with me. The holistic doctors, t were able to help me medically, . After twenty years of illness, a Dallas, Texas doctor figured I was a student at the University of New Mexico when i first became ill. i was 23 when i forst doctor found what ws wrong with me. i was scheduled a couple of years ago to testify in front DC in regard to this poison which has been used in dental fillings for about 100 years. I was in news in regard to this problem. The government control that is going to be a result of this atrociaous health care bill will put th mine out of business. Though these doctors practice alternative medicine, they are still highly of these doctors believe in more natural, holistic approaches to good health , preventative , inte many times likely suggest one take Aloe vera juice or garlic tablets to help high blood preesure expensive drugs which someone like me tend to be allergic to. One of my doctors informed me supply costs are expensive, he will probably have to go out of business with the current health able to make as much money. Plus thier freedom to help people in the alternative route will be governmetn control.

Whart w emploers in jail for hiring less people? it would not surprise me under this governmetn which s communism. When my doctors go out of business, i will not be able to get the wonderful health care i have the way, no insurance companies have covered me since i have been ill for twenty years, i hav illness. i am one who has no health insurance, and I am financially poor due to bad health.

I grew up in New Mexico. i now live in Texas. However, much of my family is still in New M is my home, though i am physically no longer there. I am alarmed at what seems the state of N support this health care bill which will kill private health practitioners businesses and excercise citizens. . I also understand that under the national health care bill, a person would be required to pay a m chooses not to pay this fee, the IRS will penalize that person. i have been so broke sometimes able to afford this fee. Will I be fined (yes) taken to jail by the IRS (possibly) . This type of act Venezuela or Fidel Castro's Cuba, nota free United States. The traditional medical doctors who the socialistic health care system may not be able to help me at all. They have not been able to pay for somthing that is of no help to me? Finally, i wish to say that politicians who have no better scruples or sense than to support this themselves out of a job. The next step is for citizens to vote any politician out of office who no care bill, but who is ignoring peoples right to their freedoms. i pray that you will join my state of Texas, and the other states who are suing over this terrible You have now heard a opiniion of a woman with chronic health problems, and who has had no cover her. .The answer to mine and other poor people's health problems is not a nationa lhealth practitioners of the alternative route out of business.

This health care is a disgrace to this Great Country of ours! I would like for you to join in with against this sham of a goverment! We the people will not give up on our Constitutional Rights Thank -you Mrs Fran Wilderson Silver City, NM. Defend New Mexico's constitutional rights!

When they formed the Constitution, the states delegated 17 powers - and no more - to the cent are listed in Article I, Section 8. Since Congress has only the powers granted to it by the states Article I, Section 8, Congress and the president have no legitimate authority to act. Every othe reserved to the states by the 10th Amendment. You will look in vain among the enumerated powers of Article I, Section 8 for the right of the mandate that American citizens purchase health insurance. It's not there.

This means Governor Richardson has every constitutional right and obligation to take a stand a power and protect my freedom of choice in health care.

Fourteen states have already filed suit against the federal government to protect their citizens f

federal government, but New Mexico has not.

Please help the citizens of New Mexico by filling suit to think that this bill is unconstitional. T unconstitutional is because they are requiring health care on every citizen.

Health Care This so call, Health Care Bill, is NOT wanted by THE PEOPLE. We are being force fed. This country - to destroy it!!!! Why is Obama reading a book titled, "The Post-American World"? Suit the Federal Government. The Health Care Bill is nothing more that a re-distribution of we senators & Congressmen would want to be on the plan, but they are not.

Jim Schultz Roswell, NM Very happy that something was done. Hopefully it will be a beginning to many more moves fo women. I am tired of the Party of Nope Dear Sir:

I am so very surprised that Obama Care has passed. How could it pass if our delegates are doin speak to anyone who is in favor of Obama Care, doesn't what "We the people of the United Sta government?

If you ask me, I don't think there is a trustworth, God fearing person that works for the rights o

more. I have become so disgusted with this whole thing, primarily Obama - who doesn't seem who doesn't seem to care what the people of America wants. If he does, he's blatantly ignoring Non-American.

I can't believe that he is in the White House in the first place. He has deceived and lied and coe viewpoint other than his, until he gets what he wants.

This isn't the America I was born into!!! We are no better than Russia was during the Cold Wa these days, are they just so tired of fighting (because it doesn't do any good anyway) or are the don't get off our backside and start getting involved, we are going to be just another 3rd World

How can we mobilize our people and make them understand that this is just the top of the iceb lot they don't see and can't even conceive of what is going on.

Mr. King, can you help us? What can we do to help? I am so frustrated at this point, I'm glad I' to see our great United States of America go down - that's where we're heading right now!

Thank you for anything you can do for us, Barbara Taylor 2801 W. 8th St. Roswell, NM 88201 575-622-0656 I believe that this new law is unconstitutional, it REQUIRES that EVERYONE buys health ins managed to exempt themselves in the legislation.

I believe there are many OTHER options that could have an shouldn't take a nearly 3000 page bill to get health insurance for those who desire it and can't a insurance companies accountable as well as maybe reduce the number of lawsuits or the amou tort reform which would eliminate many of the costly "add ons" which elevate the cost of heal . 3/26/2010 17:03:07

My father was as devout and loyal an American citizen there could have ever been. He fought from the federal gov’t in 1987, relocated to a small town in WA State. He was the commander recite a eulogy at every fellow veteran's funeral, something he was proud and honoured to do. at such a funeral, and after having handed his fellow veteran's family the folded American flag attack. He passed away one week later. This was 6 years ago and I still love him and miss him He so loved GOD and he so loved his country, and was very proud to have been a small part o rights not only of his fellow countrymen, but for their future heirs. It would absolutely break h his country now and the reckless, dangerous decisions made by a handfull of terrorists in Wash because terrorists have black hearts, are destructive and deadly, whose sole purpose is to maim come in contact with.

This beautiful country is suffering and is on the road to ruin because of a handful of traitors. M has filtered down to his children and grandchildren, and we love this country just as much as h

currently serving her country in Afghanistan, leaving behind her infant son in my care. As mu GOD he's not here to witness not only the destruction of his country, but the slaughter of the v believed in.

I cut and pasted the following about the recent health care bill passage, which has nothing to d everything to do with total government control. If this "health care" the federal government de citizens, why have they exempted themselves from it?

"The legislation that was labeled "Health Care" that passed Sunday is in no way a piece of legi care problems but in fact, it is going to destroy the greatest health care delivery system in the w countries knows that America is the place to be if you are seriously ill. With this government t can't allow this government to destroy our health care system and we certainly can't allow them government. People must understand that this legislation is mislabeled and it protects NO ONE Congress."

I'm still reeling from this decision, which will ruin the country for my children and my grandc well. We are not a third world nation! We as American citizens can NOT trust or depend on th office to be our voices in Washington. We the people have spoken out against this bill, and cle with government control, but with the dirty deals behind closed doors, bold faced lies and thre payouts that got this bill passed, there's no one for us to trust anymore. What has happened to W

We as a country have many problems, but if we have the right mix of GOD fearing loyalty and top, we can overcome anything in time because this is our nature.

Rachel Cleveland PO Box 255 T or C, NM heishi79@gmail.com Please consider joining the other AGs in the suit over the health care reform bill. It certainly d know of one (1) New Mexican who feels this is a move in the right direction. I don't understan for something that most of America was against. The numbers do not make sense, the CBO es there are so many issues wrapped into this bill that it has become impossible to understand, vir fear it will create a huge target for even more fraud than we have with Medicare. I think we are moving the Federal Government into the healthcare business. As New Mexican taxpayers we h medical care for all our citizens through BCMC and UNMH - or at least that is what I've been those taxes. I'm strongly opposed to 'free' healthcare for those who are not legal citizens and I money being used to provide abortions.

On behalf of all New Mexicans, I urge you to join many of your fellow U.S. Attorneys Genera newly-signed, so called "Health Care Bill." This bill mandates that all Americans buy health in mandate I don't see in the US Constitution. Whether I choose to purchase insurance or pay as I my decision, not Congress' or the President's. Health care is not a right I find in the Constitutio . 3/28/2010 17:02:27

Some liken this mandate to purchasing liability insurance when owning a vehicle. Since drivin afforded the right to choose whether to drive or not, I can choose to avoid such insurance man driving a vehicle. The health insurance just signed into law gives me no such choice. I buy or I outrageous at the least, and unconstitutional at the worst.

Please, protect my rights as a US Citizen and challenge the constitutionality of this bill. Althou reform is needed, I don't agree that trampling on the rights of our citizenry is the way to accom

My husband and I are very concerned about seems to usurp states rights. Plus the added burden of the expense of covering more medicare Please give these requests careful conaideration. Reba Hardin Based on preliminary review of the Act, a sufficient legal basis exists to contest the individual insurance or pay a penalty under the Act. It is not clear that Congress has an enumerated powe Constitution to impose this requirement on a citizen. Further, the tax imposed on a citizen for f may not comport with the requirement that any direct tax be apportioned among the states in a

Sections 2 and 9 of the U.S. Constitution.

In addition, I am very concerned that the Act upsets the proper balance of power between the f states that was envisioned by the Founders. The federal government is a government of limited Congress to act, it must have power given to it by the U.S. Constitution. Any power not given resides with the states under the Tenth Amendment, unless the exercise of state power is limite What Congress has approved in the Act is a sweeping mandate that every citizen in the country face a penalty. The power asserted here is unprecedented and unique. The United States Supre opportunity to evaluate an equivalent exercise of power by Congress under the Act.

As the state attorney general, you have a unique obligation to ensure that the citizens of our sta representatives, retain the power to determine our own laws without encroachment from the fe authorized by the U.S. Constitution. Importantly, the New Mexico Legislature has never enact citizens to carry health insurance or face a penalty.

This is not spend billions on killing people or bailing out the rich but providing health care for all citizens build bombs and nanobots but raising or saving the average Americans from medical catastrop don't agree. If we ever want to prosper again, start with providing education and health care so getting sick and losing everything they ever worked for. Punishing the sick for being sick is ag stands for - compassion, cooperation, community, and equality. The American worker is what they are dying of stress if they aren't sick and left for dead if they are. Sounds more like old Ru I want America to be beautiful, strong and prosperous for everyone not just the top 1%. That's - for freedom and justice for all without denying our inalienable rights to make the best of our interference. We don't need the insurance industry - no one should have a middleman between doctors are trained to help me but the insurance companies, proudly motivated by profit, won't doctors if they aren't allowed to help us?

I am convinced by the Attorneys General and Governors challenging the bill that there are some things wrong with it. Personally, I don't think the US G anyone to purchase health insurance. I also believe that the government has no right to penaliz carry insurance. During the debates and up until it passed, I contacted both Senators and all 3 C these same opinions as well as the cost to the states if it became law. Now that it is law, I urge AG's and Governors in opposing this law as being unconstitutional. Thank you.

We know that there is no scheme for the government to take over every aspect of our lives, wi step in a "grand socialistic plan." Nor is implementation of health insurance reform the initiatio republican form of government of the United States.

On the other hand, health insurance reform is the answer to the government's obligation to pro people - security of their health without fear of losing their homes and other personal and finan bankruptcy caused by medical bills. I cannot think of a more clear definition of the Constitutio than personal security in my health. This legislation is a long overdue, forward-looking step to care system back into the top 10 countries in the world in low percentage of cost per citizen, h outcome in curing the sick, and high percentage of sickness prevention in the overall populatio the federal deficit over time!

The Health Care Bill is crucial to help protect the lives and welfare of all Americans, particularl preexisting conditions or who cannot afford care. If the Attorney General were to waste funds to recognized for what it is, abuse of and official position; waste of tax funds; a cynical political st ignorance of constitutional law; a good way to lose one's job and credibility with the voters. Ple to file any contest to the health bill unless you have a better idea to take care of our impoverishe Since I will assume that the Governor and State Legislature do not support such a stunt that our those sentiments. The AGs who have filed thus far will be embarrassed for being on the wrong stop taking care of each other? The government is meant to to good where corporations and cor always refuse. The blood of 44,900 people per year who have died for lack of insurance is on th The HealthCare Bribed bill forced on the American people needs to be opposed by your office b other state Attorney Generals.

Most of the congressional electorate did not even read the bill. There are many unknown conseq uncovered with time. There are political kickbacks and special favors that were given to secure hire 16,500 new IRS agents to police the people? What does taking over the student loan progra care? I feel that the more individual states that participate in the action will send a strong messa want health care reform as it is presented here. This entrie action is a wolf in sheep's clothing. W realized immediately rather that years from now. If the need is so great, why are we paying for the funding for it? The state is struggling with it's own budget problems, can we really afford to mandated items?

new mexico needs to sue the federal govt. over this farce of a health care bill. This bill will bank

As our elected official and representative of the people of the great state of New Mexico, I am r immediately file suit against the Federal Government based on the unconstitutional basis this le include:

WHEREAS The tax that will be imposed on higher cost insurance policies is a direct tax and pu the 16th Amendment and the uniformity clause of Article 1, Section 8 as it is a direct tax which among the states according to population.

WHEREAS The Supreme Court has ruled, on several matters, that a tax, whether direct or indir nature.

WHEREAS The ‘special deals’ made with various states to secure their votes on this bill would Article1, Section 8 if the tax were to be apportioned as the states have cut deals exempting them

with Healthcare the rest of the nation will have to subsidize.

WHEREAS This bill does not regulate what people choose to do, rather it requires them to do s not to do with regard to when and if to purchase healthcare and what type of healthcare they sho WHEREAS The enforcement of this legislation tramples ‘states rights’ in their ability to adopt – by adoption through a vote – the residents of each of the sovereign states.

WHEREAS The 10th Amendment states, ”Powers not delegated to the United States by the Con to the states, are reserved to the states…” The Federal Government can no more tell us what typ must buy our food from, than they can mandate what and how much healthcare we purchase.

WHEREAS Never before has the government been able to provide a product or service which i or efficient than the American people have been able to procure for themselves through a comp

and, WHEREAS Never before in the history of these United States of America has the Federal source provider or ‘clearinghouse’ of a product or service it mandates the People to purchase fro under Penalty of Law. This practice must not be allowed to be forcibly adopted by the People th State Government.

This as well as previous administrations in DC have deemed that the term “right” and “privilege according to the Constitution and they ARE NOT.

And further, to the New Mexico State Attorney General, whose power to challenge the legality legislation rest within your office, I do not ask you or plead with you to protect our rights – I req official responsible for representing the rights and wishes of the People, to challenge the constit and not mandate compliance on us.

This fiasco bill will bankrupt the economy and cause the debt to skyrocket. Beside that it's unco

As Andrew P. Napolitano, the youngest Superior Court judge ever to attain lifetime tenure in th served on the bench from 1987 to 1995, has stated:

"The Constitution does not authorize the Congress to regulate the state governments," Napolitan piece of legislation, the Congress has told the state governments that they must modify their reg healthcare, they must surrender their regulation of other areas of healthcare, and they must spen dollars in a way that the Congress wants it done. "That's called commandeering the legislature," taking away the discretion of the legislature with respect to regulation, and spending taxpayer d couple of Supreme Court cases. So on that argument, the attorneys general have a pretty strong prevail.”

We need health care reform and want to keep the new reform as law. What we need is for each ensure that medical insurance companies doing business in their state do not take advantage of p companies should not be raising their premiums either since reformed just became law. Mutual on Plan F for retired people in addition to the 2010 rate hike. This company should be spanked about abusing their policy holders. This government is supposed to be "of the people, by the people, and for the people". The peop and have decidedly stated that they don't want this health care plan. We don't want socialism. T the American people against their will.

We need to increase the free market not restrict it. Let insurance companies compete freely acro businesses go out of business then they go out of business. This will insure the American people price. This is what the United States of America was built on. If we don't stay the course that w Fathers, then the country that has been known as the United States of America will be on a dow impossible to stop.

Government doesn't run business well. Just look at Social Security along with a long list of othe As Ronald Reagan said, "Government isn't the solution to our problems. Government is the pro countries look to and come to the United States for the best medical care? Why do citizens from health care come to the U.S. for major surgery etc? Because we already have the best health car better? Yes! But government taking over isn't the way to make it better. Increased regulation an Fining citizens for not having health care or not having the "right kind" of health care is socialis

Please fight for the rights that our Founding Fathers fought and died for. Lets get back to the Am world and that the rest of the world envies by letting the individual shine doing what he/she doe taking away our initiative.

After a year of contentious debate, it became clear that the House intended to pass the health ca necessary, even if it required the use of a "deem and pass" procedure whereby Members would After a massive public outcry arose against that unconstitutional proposal (Article I, § 7, ¶ 2, an of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and nays" on a measure rather than just "deeming" Hollen (MD), head of the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee, urged Democrat Hou and avoid talking about the unconstitutional process in an attempt to lessen the political backlas

That procedure ultimately was not used, but once the health care bill passed, voters demanded o constitutional provision that authorized the federal takeover of health care. In answering that qu (MI) replied: "Under several clauses – the Good and Welfare Clause and a couple others. All th scholars that I know (I'm chairman of the Judiciary committee, as you know) – they all say that unconstitutional in this bill." 2

Of course, there is no Good and Welfare Clause in the Constitution, but assuming that Conyers mistake, he likely was referring to the General Welfare Clause, which appears in two locations:

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensu provide for the common defense, promote THE GENERAL WELFARE, and secure the blessin our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. PREAM CONSTITUTION

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts, and excises to pay the d common defense and GENERAL WELFARE of the United States. ART. 1, SEC. 8, PAR. 1 House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (MD) agreed that "Congress has 'broad authority' to force care "so long as it was trying to promote 'the general welfare'." 3

(Rep. James Clyburn – the No. 3 ranking Democrat in the House – did not invoke the General W candidly admitted, "Most of what we do down here is not authorized by the Constitution." 4 )

The attempt by congressional leaders to invoke the General Welfare Clause as a cover for an un new. In 1792 when New England was suffering a crisis in one of its most important economic i Congressmen proposed that federal funds be used to subsidize that troubled industry. James Ma such a proposal was unconstitutional, explaining:

Those who proposed the Constitution knew, and those who ratified the Constitution also knew t government tied down to specified powers. . . . It was never supposed or suspected that the old money of the states to encourage agriculture or for any other purpose they pleased. 5

Madison then warned about the consequences of allowing Congress to expand the narrow mean Clause":

If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the "general welfare," and are the sole and suprem welfare," then they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teacher parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the educati like manner schools throughout the United States; they may assume the provision for the poor; regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, everything from the highest object of state minute object of police would be thrown under the power of Congress, for every object I have m application of money, and might be called, if Congress pleased, provisions for the "general welf

According to Madison, if the original intent of the General Welfare Clause were ever expanded an unbridled intrusion into areas that were deliberately designed by the Constitution to be under local governments. Two specific aspects of the Constitution were intended to prohibit such fede Enumerated Powers Doctrine, and (2) the Bill of Rights – specifically the Ninth and Tenth Ame

Concerning the first, the Constitution authorizes Congress to address only eighteen specifically individually listed) areas and responsibilities; this is called the Enumerated Powers Doctrine. A Jefferson:

Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare but is restrained to those s . it was never meant they should provide for that welfare but by the exercise of the enumerated

Many other Founders were equally outspoken about Congress' limitations under the Enumerated this doctrine was so well understood that in America's first several decades, presidents had only departments: the Secretary of State, the Secretary of War, the Secretary of the Treasury, and the (occasionally there was also a separate Secretary of the Navy, but many presidents often placed War). Today, however, there are almost four times as many cabinet level positions, including a Labor, Commerce, Housing, Education, Transportation, Energy, and many others. 8 Each of tho important two centuries ago, but because the Constitution had placed these areas under the juris there was no federal presence involved in them.

Concerning the second point (the Bill of Rights), the Founding Fathers – dedicated students of h human nature that they were – knew that the federal government would invariably try to step be they therefore added the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the Constitution, directly stipulating t listed in the Constitution were to remain under the jurisdiction of the states and local governmen

such as education, criminal justice, energy, agriculture, and many others. As Thomas Jefferson

I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: that "all powers not delegat Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people" [the Te a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress is to ta field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition. 9 James Madison agreed:

I declare it as my opinion that [if] the power of Congress be established in the latitude contende very foundations . . . of the limited government established by the people of America. 10 Jefferson further explained:

Our country is too large to have all its affairs directed by a single government. Public servants a under the eye of their constituents . . . will invite the public agents to corruption, plunder, and w augmentation of the field for jobbing, speculating, plundering, office-building, and office-hunti assumption of all the state powers into the hands of the federal government! 11 As Jefferson summarized it:

The states can best govern our home concerns, and the [federal] government our foreign ones. 1

Significantly, health care issues often arose in early America – as when various dangerous fever ravaging American cities and killing scores of citizens. Concerning health care issues, the Foun domestic health care into the hands of the state governments, leaving issues of international hea federal government. As Thomas Jefferson affirmed, the federal government was "to certify with sailing from a foreign port, the state of health respecting this fever which prevails at the place fr "the state authorities [are] charged with the care of the public health." 13 Under the Constitution domestic health care issues, and the federal government foreign ones. –––♦♦♦–––

Notwithstanding the fact that a majority of Congressmen voted for the recent passage of the unc there are many in Congress who do understand the constitutionally limited powers of Congress. Congressmen formed the Constitution Caucus, chaired by Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ), and many of outstanding efforts to return Congress to its constitutional role; two such measures are highlight Rep. John Shadegg (AZ)

Every session since John has been in Congress, he has introduced "The Enumerated Powers Ac all bills introduced in the U. S. Congress include a statement setting forth the specific constituti law is being enacted." 14 As Shadegg explains, "The Enumerated Powers Act will help slow the legislation and force Congress to reexamine the proper role of the federal government." 15

Not surprisingly, leaders of Congress have not allowed this bill to move forward, nevertheless, Congress should provide constitutional authority for the actions it takes and the bills it passes! Rep. Mike Conaway (TX)

Federal law establishes September 17 (the day the Constitution was signed in 1787) as Constitu that day every school receiving federal funding spend time studying the Constitution. Despite th that the majority of high school students had never heard of Constitution Day, and only ten perc school celebration the prior year. 16

However, Congressman Conaway believed that not just school students but also Members of Co also study the Constitution on that day, so he introduced a congressional resolution to that effec Judiciary Committee heard the resolution, he told Mike, "That's the stupidest idea I've ever hear common among many in Congress.

Nonetheless, Mike (and many other Congressmen like him) continues to study the Constitution always carries a pocket Constitution with him and each time he reads through it, he writes the d booklet – a practice he began even before he became a Member of Congress. –––♦♦♦––– Founding Father John Jay wisely advised:

Every member of the State ought diligently to read and to study the constitution of his country. they will sooner perceive when they are violated and be the better prepared to defend and assert

The only way that more Congressmen will begin to study the Constitution is if "We The People through the power of our voice, calls, letters, and votes, insist that our elected officials also kno

Linda Ward 1016 Desert Willow Ct. Bernalillo, NM 87004 The Health Care Bill, passed on strictly partisan lines, is wrong in so many ways. The aspect of t office is its Constitutionality.

Attorney General Gary King, As you know most of the people of the United Stated are against the Health Care Bill as is. Most have not read it and do not know what is in it.

Our country is headed in the wrong direction. Please help. Gwen Gray Tucumcari, NM The Health Care Bill recently passed by Congress is a farce and an insult to all who care about f This is an insult to the people of New Mexcico and the country at large. It is also a usuption of t states to regulate and oversee the Health Care. A clear violation of the 10th amendment. Also an Claus. The New Mexico Attorney General must put the good of the people first and political pa issue. Protect the citizens of New Mexico as your oath of office calls for. This Health Care Bill needs to be gone. Doctors are already refusing to see people on Medicare. our lives paying into Medicare to have a living when we got old, now we are getting the shaft. I even afford the suplemental insurance because our has went up twice this year already. What is Attorney General King,

I implore you to please join the Attorneys general from 13 states who have sued the federal gov 2010, (Up to 18 as of this email date) claiming the landmark health care overhaul bill is unconst after President Barack Obama signed it into law. This federal mandate is unfunded and with cau our state economy. Our state budget is already in an approximately $1,000,000,000.00 deficit. S issues of this legislation, NEW MEXICO JUST CAN NOT AFFORD IT! I also ask that you su what Virginia passed which specifies that its residents cannot be required to purchase health ins Here are a few reasons why we oppose this legislation.

1) IT IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION! IT IS NOT A RIGHT! IT WAS INITIALLY PROVI A FRINGE BENEFIT OR LATER TO SENIORS AS PART OF MEDICARE, ETC. NOT ONL CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATION, IT IS IN FACT, UNCONSTITUTIONAL ON SEVERA US GOVERNMENT CAN NOT COMPEL CITIZENS TO BUY A PRODUCT, MUCH LESS REFUSAL TO BUY IT. (B) I BELIEVE IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE EQUAL PROTECTIO OFFERS SPECIAL EXEMPTIONS AND BREAKS TO CERTAIN GROUPS INCLUDING: U NEBRASKA & LOUISIANA CITIZENS, AMISH AND CHRISTIAN SCIENCE RELIGIONS SENIOR CONGRESSIONAL STAFF WHO WROTE THE BILL & EXEMPTED THEMSELV LEGISLATION POSSIBLY FALL UNDER THE COMMERCE CLAUSE IF THE DISSENTE NOT ENGAGING IN COMMERCE?

2) WE HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN GOVERNMENT RUN PROGRAMS. THEIR PERFORM (BANKRUPT), FANNIE/FREDDIE MAC (BANKRUPT), SOCIAL SECURITY (BANKRUP EXCEEDING PAYINS THIS YEAR!), USPS (BANKRUPT/GOING TO 5 DAY DELIVERY) (LOST MONEY), ETC. HAVE BEEN ABYSMAL!

3) GOVERNMENT MANDATES ON PRICES WILL DECREASE PROFIT FOR DOCTORS PEOPLE FROM ENTERING THE MEDICAL FIELD. LESS PROVIDERS, LEADS TO RAT THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE SURVEY OF DOCTORS RESPONDED T THEM WOULD LEAVE THEIR PRACTICE RATHER THAN OPERATE UNDER THIS PL THEIR HIPPOCRATIC OATH.

4) WE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS AN EFFORT UNDERWAY TO EXTEND COVERAGE F

IMMIGRANTS, THUS INCREASING THE PARTICIPANTS. (FURTHER LEADS RATION AN APPARENT EXEMPTION FOR THEM FROM THE FINES IF THEY REFUSE TO PAR

5) DECREASED PROVIDERS AND INCREASED PARTICIPANTS LEADS TO RATIONED LINES, REDUCED TREATMENT DUE TO INCREASED COST & ABILITY TO HANDLE RATIONED CARE LEADS TO INCREASED COSTS ($2,500,000,000,000.00 CURRENT ES ECONOMICS 101...

6) ALONG WITH DISCOURAGING PEOPLE FROM ENTERING THE MEDICAL FIELD, LOWERING OF ADMISSION STANDARDS TO BOLSTER ENROLLMENT IN MEDICAL STANDARDS LEADS TO SUBSTANDARD HEALTH CARE.

7) ALL OTHER GOVERNMENT PLANS, INCLUDING THOSE IN CUBA, ENGLAND, CA OUR EXISTING SYSTEM. WHY DO WE WANT TO EMULATE FAILURE? WHY ELSE T CRITICAL CARE WHEN THEIR SYSTEM FAILS THEM? (RECENTLY, CANADIAN PRE HEART SURGERY. WHEN ASKED ABOUT IT - HE RESPONDED: "IT'S MY HEALTH, IT

8) MONOPOLIES (GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE) BY DEFINITION, ELIMINATE THE ENGINE FOR INNOVATION AND NATURAL MOTIVATION TO DEVELOP COST

9) ISN'T IT OBVIOUS THAT GOVERNMENT RUN THE HEALTH CARE AND SOCIAL S OF INTEREST. DO YOU REALLY WANT THE FOLKS WHO PAY YOUR RETIREMENT CONTROL OF YOUR HEALTH CARE?

10) WE HAVE THE BEST HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD AND I SUPPORT U CARE AS A CONCEPT. {THOSE WHO CAN AFFORD IT, PAY FOR IT THEMSELVES IF FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE AN EMPLOYER PROVIDED PLAN AND HAVE THE SMALL MINORITY (APPROX. 18 MILLION) OF THOSE WHO CAN NOT AFFORD IT.) I DONE IN THE FREE MARKET SYSTEM WITH TORT REFORM, ALLOW COMPANIES T STATE LINES, GOV. REGULATIONS ON INSURANCE & PHARMACEUTICAL COMPA CONDITIONS, FRAUD REDUCTION IN MEDICAID/MEDICARE. WE DO NOT NEED A BOONDOGGLE AND COMPLETE TAKEOVER OF OUR LIVES TO ADDRESS THE 18 M

11) THIS TAKE OVER OF 1/6th OF THE US ECONOMY ALSO OPENS THE DOOR FOR T REGULATE EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE UNDER THE AUSPICES OF HEALTH CAR DRINK, RISKY BEHAVIORS, ACCESS TO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT, ETC. ETC. WHY E LEGISLATION PROVIDE FOR THE HIRING OF 16,500 NEW IRS AGENTS?

12) MANY OF US HAVE A MORAL DIRECTIVE NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN ABORTION WOULD FORCE CITIZENS TO PAY FOR ABORTION UNDER THIS PLAN.

13) ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS HAVE SAID THAT THEY PLAN TO CUT THE PROF INSURANCE COMPANIES AND PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES. THIS WILL STIFLE INNOVATION IN THE INDUSTRY AND REDUCE THE ABILITY OF THE DRUG COMP DRUGS TO THE MARKET PLACE. THIS WILL UNSEAT US AS THE WORLD LEADER

INDUSTRY.

14) WE CAN NOT AFFORD IT! IT IS ESTIMATED TO COST $2.5 TRILLION ($2,500,000, THIS IS SIMPLY UNSUSTAINABLE AND WILL PUT MY GREAT GRAND CHILDREN I ARE EVEN BORN. EVEN THE REPORTED NUMBERS ARE QUESTIONABLE WHEN TH IN IMMEDIATELY BUT THE "BENEFITS" DON'T START FOR 4 YEARS. EVEN WITHO AMERICA'S CREDIT RATING HAS BEEN ON ROPES DUE TO OUR CURRENT RECOR MARCH 26th, 2010, THE CBO ADMITTED A $1 TRILLION ERROR IN THEIR ACCOUNT NOW ESTIMATED TO BE 90% OF OUR GDP!!! WHOOPS... INTERESTING THAT THIS THE BILL PASSED....

15) HIDDEN IN THE LEGISLATION ARE MANY FEDERAL MANDATES THAT OVERR NATIONAL ECONOMY, INCLUDING THE HIJACKING OF STUDENT LOANS THAT W LOAN COSTS TO STUDENTS WITH INFLATED INTEREST RATES. THIS GOVERNMEN FURTHER DAMAGE OUR PRIVATE SECTOR BANKING INDUSTRY AND IS MOVING SYSTEM UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, CONTRARY TO FOUNDING FATHERS. 16) IT IS OBVIOUS TO THE PEOPLE (YOUR EMPLOYER) THAT THIS IS NOT ABOUT POWER GRAB AND EFFORT TO CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF OUR DAILY LIVES (A DINGLE RECENTLY ADMITTED), SHUT OUT PRIVATE INDUSTRY AND HOOK US O HANDOUTS. THIS ALL HAS A VERY STRONG RESEMBLANCE TO SOCIALISM. PAT VIGIL ALBUQUERQUE

Jimmy & Jan Wallace Tucumcari, NM 88401 While I believe that there are Social Issues, they need to be addressed within the various States; Government should be mandating outside their Constitutional Authority on Healthcare. The pro

than what is the reasonable leadership responsibility of the Federal Government to promote "Ge appropriately "General Wealthfare" and cost the individual taxpayer a higher overall cost. Polci at the local level where the issues actually exist and the care needs to be provided.

The politics involved; with heavy influence by the Insurance and Drug Industry provides them " the law - is suspect. Overall it is a Mandated "System" which infringe on Individual State rights rights.

Overall it continues a Social Agenda that has been more harmful to our country. Current Statisti Burden of the entire Social Agenda is funded by those earning less than $200K; this works out t those earning less than $50K; 49% by those earning $50-100K, and 22% by those earning $100 of funds targeted for profit by companies owned by people that earn well over $1M - who contr same programs. Thus, under the auspices of "helping the people" the programs deprives them o liberties for alternative solutions and makes them ultimately dependent on the "Gov't System". T its individual citizens; yet is the greatest tax burden. The Federal Gov't also continues to run up will pay for, for years to come if it continues to go unchecked. The founding father's would be turning over in their grave.

"Governments are bound by essentially the same moral principles as individuals; and that most governments have acted improperly insofar as they have utilized coercion for plunder, aggressio purposes beyond the protection of individual liberty". This law is the result a a Federal Governm

I would strongly urge the State of New Mexico to join the Challenge to this new Law. Federal p used for such outrageous "redistribution" of wealth and eventual forcing the purchase of a produ whose owners do not contribute to "helping the people" yet a contributor to the rising costs. The companies played in crafting the bill needs to also be investigated. "Business as Usual" in Wash practices Ethical. Currently they are overstepping the Constitution what may be viewed as a min end?

Are we all to be taxed into submission? A system where the States must beg from the Federal G their State programs because the Federal Gov't has all made the citizens so poor and without the now becoming the only means for personal liberty - and now this is being taken as well. Redistr power; where does it end...Do they next allow the Freedom of Choice for Abortions but put a $1

Please file a suit against the Obama Healthcare Bill as being unconstitutional. And I truly believ health insurance and am happy with it. But this unconstitutional bill is 'forcing even the young h pay a fine of $95. Now who would not do that, and then quickly go buy insurance if they get sic out of America. N. Glover norglo@msn.com This legislation while not perfect, does represent a first step in an effort to make the provision o citizens a reality. Over the next several months it is my hope that some of the more egregious pa goal changing them in a positive manner. If such change is not realistic then the removal of thos This legislation is for all Americans and should not be looked upon as an effort to control or lim a chance and going through revision, this legislation will benefit all Americans. mr. king I would like to know if there is any way that you can join the 17,and more comitting to government,and this congress,senate,and last but not least the obama admin. for this outrages bi the ruin of the u.s. as we know it!!! respecfully Leland Jackson This should not be an issue at all,you took an oath of office that clearly states you would up hol health care bill is against that .It will kill this country.Every bill this administration passes is me people and the economy.We,the people can see this,so why can't you?We DO NOT WANT TO who does should feel free and move there and live happily ever after.

I don't believe that the Federal Govnernment has the right or authority to force this health care o sovereign state of this republic and I for one believe that it is unconstitutional and health care is welfare clause as it is not one of the enumerated powers specifically to them.

I would like to see the Health care bill repealed!!!!!!!!!!!!

I believe the State of New Mexico has an obligation to either file its own lawsuit or join the cur by 17 states to block the implementation of the Health Care Reform Law on the basis that it vio Constitution on multiple occasions.

First, the federal government cannot use the Commerce Clause in its argument to mandate indiv or service at his or her own expense, as one's inability or unwillingness to purchase goods does economic activity.

Second, imposing a penalty for not purchasing health insurance violates the Eighth and Tenth A States Constitution, which bars excessive bail and reserves authority not specifically delegated t the Constitution to the States or to the People. I would argue that the automatic imposition of su defendants a trial by jury would result in the federal government imposing bills of attainder aga health insurance, which are also constitutionally forbidden.

The health care legislation further violates the Tenth Amendment by imposing more unfunded m seizes regulatory power of the health care sector from the state and places that authority with th health insurance cannot be sold across state lines, the Commerce Clause does not apply.

Finally, the expansion and direct federal regulation of Medicaid of great concern, as it creates m mandates and leaves New Mexico taxpayers bearing the expense. Medicaid was originally estab voluntarily opt out of the program (so far, Arizona is the only state not to participate in Medicai an option for states as the health care reform legislation greatly expands Medicaid eligibility, w eligible to drop their current coverage (if any) and enroll into Medicaid. This will have two effe massive state budget deficits, and will result in a decline in the quality of health care as health c profession to pursue their careers in more profitable economic sectors, ultimately leading to hea

I urge you to join other states in their fight to block federal health care reform through the judic inalienable right of New Mexicans to freely choose how they obtain health care, preserve New M our state's citizens are afforded quality health care, and preserve the constitutional framework u founded. Sincerely, Daniel E. Pagliaro Albuquerque

There is gross abuse going on with the welfare system. I will explain Couples get married they have children, then the get legally separated. The husba then he comes back sometimes he never even leaves. However the wife and children can receiv food stamps money for her and each child all the while the husband is working and leaving ther because we are paying them. This will go on for 18 years. There has to be a limit to this law like 1 year only then either Divorce or get back together. But children anyway!!

It gets even better they will give guardianship to their grandparents now the grandparents will b because they are raising the children. They can receive $2000 to $4000 per month. The Parents And New Mexico wants to know why the have no money because they have stupid laws and no anything.

Our free jeopardy due to leaders that think there is an endless supply of money for programs just so they I am against the health care reform that was recently passed in Washington.

Our representatives in Wash against the will of the people. You know more than I do, I haven't read the bill, but too much government control. I've had eno need to give them more control.

According to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), over half of President Barack Obama’s n entitlement is paid for by price-fixing Medicare cuts. Never mind that the President’s own Cent Services says that these cuts would cause “roughly 20 percent” of Medicare providers to go ban years. The CBO has to believe these cuts will happen because they are required, by law, to belie them. The American people are not. So the American people ought to know that instead of cutti reimbursement rates by 21% as required by law on April 1, the Centers for Medicare and Medic at current levels until Congress could come back after Easter recess and rescind those cuts. Aga year but one since the cuts were first enacted in 1997.

This doc fix is big enough that, if it had been included as a cost of Obamacare, it would have se red all by itself. But the half trillion dollars in Medicare cuts used to fund the rest of Obamacare Even if we assume they all go as planned, President Obama’s budget would borrow 42 cents for would run a $1.6 trillion deficit in 2010; and would leave permanent deficits that top $1 trillion half trillion dollars in Medicare cuts that, given Congress’ track record, the American people wo happen, and the federal government is looking at a pile of new debt.

The left’s solution to this problem has been simmering for some time now. Senate Budget Com (D-ND) floated the idea to The Washington Post last May. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told C table” in October. And yesterday White House adviser Paul Volcker told the New York Historic considered. The “it” here is a Value Added Tax (VAT), which is a fancy way of saying national

A VAT can be (and has been) structured in many different ways. But the real world results are a more government spending, lower growth, fewer jobs and more special interest power.

Higher Taxes: Don’t believe for a second that a VAT will help offset other taxes. International e VAT is likely to increase the aggregate burden of government. Europeans used to only have a s the United States. But beginning in the late 1960s, European countries began to implement VAT burden in Europe has climbed rapidly. And once a VAT is in place, the evidence shows that the

Higher Government Spending: Not surprisingly, with more revenues, European governments tu more than the United States does. According to a study by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, gov percent faster in VAT nations than in non-VAT countries.

Slower Growth: According to the academic literature, there is a strong negative relationship bet and economic performance. In other words, more government spending means less economic gr Economic growth is driven by individuals and entrepreneurs operating in free markets, not by W regulations.

More Power to Washington: There is one economy that would greatly benefit from a VAT: Wa ever be levied evenly on all goods and services. Due to political considerations, a VAT in additi likely exempt politically sensitive items like food, clothing, health care and housing. Industries exemptions from the VAT for the economic benefits described above. This would give Congres picking winners and losers in the marketplace. Success would depend less on ingenuity and har to gain political favor.

Our nation faces a financial crisis. But low revenues are not the problem. Spending is. Heritage

Real federal spending remained steady at $21,000 per household throughout the 1980s and 1990 hiked it to $25,000 per household. Now, President Obama has a proposed a budget that would p $32,000 per household annually – and that’s before all the baby boomers retire and add another Social Security, Medicare, and Medicare costs to the bottom line.

So the problem is not declining revenues, but rather a spending spree unlike any in American hi spending $32,000 per household, it will have to tax $32,000 per household – an unaffordable an what kind of tax collects it.

Rather than tax America into permanent economic stagnation, President Obama and Congress m spending. Simply bringing real federal spending back to the $21,000 per household average tha 1990s would balance the budget by 2012 without raising a single tax on anyone. Even returning level of 20 percent of GDP would eliminate two-thirds of the projected 2019 budget deficit with Quick Hits:

Obamacare devotees have described the tax on retiree drug benefits as a move to close a “looph said, was actually subsidizing the company-paid benefits, so the tax is merely a way to recoup s money. Sounds reasonable. Until you get the back story and the details.

The government “subsidy” was created in the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003, when Cong new big entitlement before Obamacare: a universal prescription drug benefit for all Medicare be drum roll please- roughly $8 trillion to the unfunded liability of the Medicare program.

Back then, roughly three out of four seniors already had prescription drug coverage of some sor benefit. Rather than provide a prescription drug benefit for only those who needed it, both Dem Congress wanted a universal drug entitlement added to Medicare. So, the Congressional Republ And the taxpayers were henceforth on the hook for Medicare drug coverage for all seniors—eve wanted it.

During the big Medicare drug debate of 2003, the Heritage Foundation argued strenuously again warning that it would inevitably crowd out private coverage. The Congressional Budget Office, universal entitlement would encourage companies to dump their drug coverage for retirees.

To keep companies from dumping coverage as a result of their own handiwork, Congress offere private companies to keep offering prescription drug benefits to their retirees. After all, it was c help subsidize the private coverage than to pay the entire cost of the coverage through Medicare

But it was a case of “fixing” bad policy with more bad policy. Congress effectively ensured tha subsidized private benefits or the new Medicare benefit, taxpayers would foot the bill.

This takes bad health Instead of helping offset the cost of Obamacare, it will doubtless encourage companies to scale drug benefits altogether, thereby increasing the number of seniors directly dependent on the Me any additional costs from this latest move will be billed to the same folks who paid for Congres subsidies: the taxpayers. How clever. Despite all the talk about how Obamacare would lower health care costs, it’s already becoming case.

Employers will undoubtedly pass the price hikes on to their employees or switch to less expensi deductibles, lesser coverage or both. Those outcomes aren’t exactly hallmarks of successful hea

In addition to the new taxes on high-value “Ca there are increases in the Medicare Part A hospital insurance tax for high earners. And there are pharmaceutical and insurance industries that will be passed on to consumers at all income levels

During his final push to win passage of the health bill, President Obama told a crowd in Strongs would “fall by as much as 3,000 percent” under his plan. The evidence rolling in shows that the he got the entire direction of premium costs under Obamacare exactly wrong. . 4/8/2010 19:39:48

Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) has put forth an ambitious health care plan

* Expanding eligibility for existing public programs, including both Medicaid and the State Chi Program (SCHIP); * Creating a National Health Insurance Exchange to serve as a federal regulator of private insur compete alongside a new National Health Plan; * Providing income-related subsidies for those without employer-sponsored health insurance wh have coverage; and * Requiring that medium and large employers provide coverage or pay a tax, while extending ta and creating a government reinsurance program to cover businesses' catastrophic health costs. Differing Estimates

Analyzing proposals based on campaign documents and media accounts is inherently difficult, a level of detail necessary for a rigorous econometric analysis. Nonetheless, several organizations of assumptions and methodologies.[2] Most notable are the Lewin Group,[3] Health Systems In Urban Institute-Brookings Institution Tax Policy Center.[5]

The best independent research shows that the Obama plan would cover roughly half of the 45 m expansion of public coverage; rely on soft methods of cost-savings; and require significant incre

Coverage. According to the Lewin Group, the Obama plan would reduce the number of uninsur fully implemented in that year. The plan would also bring about significant shifts in sources of c people would lose their private health insurance, 48.3 million people are projected to obtain pub Medicaid, SCHIP, or the new National Plan. Private employer-sponsored coverage would declin non-group coverage would decline by 7.7 million. Meanwhile, 18.6 million employees would b through their workplace (as their employers switched to this plan from private coverage), 13.1 m into the public plan in the non-group market, and 16.6 million individuals would become newly SCHIP. Therefore, the expansion of coverage under the Obama plan would be driven by enrollm would entail a crowd-out of existing private non-group and private employer-sponsored insuran

Estimates of sources of coverage, however, are sensitive to assumptions about the level at which set for the National Plan. The figures above are based on the assumption that the National Plan a level halfway between private market rates and the lower rates set by Medicare. In an alternat Lewin, reimbursement was reduced to Medicare payment levels. Enrollment in the National Pla million, contributing to a 32-million-person decrease in private health insurance and a 60.1-mill coverage. While sources of coverage would change significantly, there would not be a significa of the uninsured.[6]

Lewin applied a type of model known as a micro-simulation.[7] Health Systems Innovations Ne

analysis (funded by the McCain campaign) also using this type of approach.[8] It found that the uninsured by 25.5 million. It also found that 24.6 million people would enroll in the new public the non-group market. However, the HSI study did not look at the proposed expansions of Med further increase enrollment in public coverage.

In contrast, the Tax Policy Center (TPC) applied a different type of model known as an elasticit TPC estimated the Obama plan would reduce the number of uninsured by 18.4 million in 2009. people would gain employer sponsored insurance, 5.8 million would obtain non-group coverage in public coverage. The TPC did not take into account the differences in provider reimbursemen and private insurance.[10] Moreover, the results are somewhat confusing because it is impossib the National Plan.

Cost. According to the Lewin Group, health care system-wide savings over the 2010-19 period Since the plan does not fundamentally change incentive structures in the health care sector,[11] come from various delivery system improvements common to Obama's and McCain's plans, ran technology to disease management. The effectiveness of these initiatives assumes major behavi Mark Pauly, a prominent health care economist at the University of Pennsylvania, explains:

The main problem is that these [popular, common methods] are "if only' savings, which can be events would occur, such as physicians' being willing to adopt health IT, consumers being willin and exercise. … There is little evidence that there are known methods to cause the "if only' beha quickly on a large enough scale to matter.[12]

The efficacy of these "if only' savings has been seriously questioned by the Congressional Budg has reported that evidence of disease management,[13] comparative effectiveness,[14] health in prescription drug re-importation[16] reducing costs quickly and appreciably is lacking.

Obama says the reason people lack health insurance is that they cannot afford it. The Obama ca people in a way they understand,'[17] made an audacious promise: The typical family would sav the Senator's health plan. In calculating this figure, the Obama advisors relied on their own best system savings at full implementation. In its analysis of the Obama plan, the Lewin Group proje per family would be $426. Lewin, HSI, and TPC all found that spending by the federal government would, on net, have to to implement the plan.

Lewin projected that the Obama proposal would increase federal spending by about $1.17 trillio [18]

HSI estimates the Obama plan would cost $452 billion per year, or more than $6 trillion over a dramatic difference between this estimate and others is largely a result of HSI's assumption that cover children, the federal government would subsidize virtually the full cost of coverage. Also mandate would add sizeable costs to the federal government.

The TPC projects the Obama plan would cost $1.6 trillion over 10 years. However, the TPC mo the savings measures in the plan.

In May 2007, advisers to the campaign issued a memorandum to "interested parties' that estimat "best-guess' assumptions, the Senator's advisers estimated the plan's net cost at $50-$65 billion The memorandum then claimed any new cost could be covered by rolling back part of the Bush because of both its cost and savings estimates,[21] and other analysts have called into question t conclusions.[22] Since the Bush tax cuts are set to expire within two years anyway, they are not beyond expiration they are built into the federal government's budget baseline. Complicating th Bush tax cuts early has already been proposed by Obama as potential source of revenue for a nu initiatives.[23] Expanding Government Control

The Obama plan would reduce the number of uninsured citizens, but it would not control costs demanding considerable increases in federal expenditures. Coverage expansion would be driven in which the government would set benefit levels and provider reimbursement rates. Cost-savin fundamentally realigning economic incentives but would rely on dubious "if only' propositions care delivery.

President Obama promised Americans that “If you like the plan you have now, you can keep it. promise of Obamacare.

A recent analysis from HSA Consulting Services concludes the new law will probably lead to m consumers can use such plans. And many of those changes may make the accounts far less appe the Department of Health and Human Services writes the regs, says study author Roy Ramthun.

Unsurprisingly, there’s a price hike, too. It doubles—to a whopping 20 percent—the tax penalty to cover non-medical expenses.

But the worst news for those using HSAs is the provision requiring all policies to cover at least value of the benefits offered. What’s the actual value? No one really knows—not until the Heal Department issues regulations on how to calculate it.

Will contributions to HSAs be included in these actuarial-value calculations? HHS Secretary Ka that call. And if she rules “no,” then high-deductible health plans including HSAs will no longe your plan good-bye.

I believe the "health care reform act" recently passed by Congress to be an unconsitutional usu Congress's place to force Americans to purchase health care. A simple look at the government country and the VA and military health care systems of this country show that our government health care. Government run health care will reduce stifle research and lead to the end of impro care. Did the Founding Fathers – the Framers of our government – give states the constitutional pow will be seen in the historical evidence presented below, the answer is an unequivocal “No!”; th states. In fact, every major Founder condemned this type of state nullification – including Tho invoked above as approving it.

Notwithstanding this fact, there is little doubt that they took definite steps to ensure that the fed intrude into state issues through the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the S States respectively, or to the people.

Under the Tenth Amendment, everything not specifically enumerated in the Constitution was t states. As explained by Thomas Jefferson (on numerous occasions):

I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: that “all powers not delega Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.”…To boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress is to take possession of a boun longer susceptible of any definition. 6

The capital and leading object of the Constitution was to leave with the states all authorities w citizens only, and to transfer to the United States those which respected citizens of foreign or o effected by taking from the states the moral rule of their citizens and subordinating it to the ge authority?...Such an intention was impossible and...[would] break up the foundations of the Un best govern our home concerns, and the general [federal] government our foreign ones. I wish, offices transferred to Washington, where, further withdrawn from the eyes of the people, they and sold as at market. 7

Our country is too large to have all its affairs directed by a single [federal] government. Public and from under the eye of their constituents, must, from the circumstance of distance, be unabl

all the details necessary for the good government of the citizens and...will invite the public age waste. 8

James Madison agreed. In fact, in 1792 when a proposal was made for the federal government and prop it up with federal subsidies, Madison condemned that measure, first noting:

[T]hose who proposed the Constitution conceived [i.e., believed]… (and those who ratified the this is not an indefinite [unrestricted] government…but a limited government tied down to the never…supposed or suspected that the old Congress could give away the money of the states t agriculture, or for any other purpose they pleased. 9 Madison then warned that if the federal government was not kept limited, it would soon usurp

If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the “general welfare,” and are the sole and supre welfare,” [then Congress might] take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoi county, and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hand establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision for t the regulation of all roads other than [the] post-roads; in short, everything from the highest obj the most minute object of police would be thrown under the power of [the federal] Congress. 1

Justice Joseph Story (a “Father of American Jurisprudence”) affirmed the same constitutional Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States (a three-volume work still used by Con the Tenth Amendment, Story explained:

Being an instrument of limited and enumerated powers, it follows irresistibly that what is not c belongs to the state authorities….All powers not delegated…and not prohibited are reserved [t

Others Founders affirmed the same intent, including Samuel Adams, 12 Patrick Henry, 13 Geo 15 Elbridge Gerry, 16 Thomas McKean, 17 Richard Henry Lee, 18 Luther Martin, 19 James M

Given the Framers’ clear vision of a small and limited federal government, how did it become encompassing? The first reason had been foreseen by Founding Father Samuel Adams (“The F Revolution”), who cautioned:

If the liberties of America are ever completely ruined…it will in all probability be the consequ prudence which leads men to acquiesce in measures of the most destructive tendency for the sa

The federal emboldened to enter additional areas – or to use a description provided by Thomas Jefferson, i by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless st jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.” 22 This is the current situation, and citizens do not like it:

* 64% of Americans believe that government is too big (6% believe it is too small, and only 25

Constitutio * When asked to identify the biggest threat to the future of the country, 55% identified big gov and 10% big labor. 24 * 70% of Americans favor “smaller government with fewer services and lower taxes” rather th with more services and higher taxes.” 25 Madison then warned about the consequences of allowing Congress to expand the narrow mea Clause”:

If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the “general welfare,” and are the sole and supre welfare,” then they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teache parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the educa in like manner schools throughout the United States; they may assume the provision for the po regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, everything from the highest object of sta most minute object of police would be thrown under the power of Congress, for every object I of the application of money, and might be called, if Congress pleased, provisions for the “gene

According to Madison, if the original intent of the General Welfare Clause were ever expanded an unbridled intrusion into areas that were deliberately designed by the Constitution to be unde local governments. Two specific aspects of the Constitution were intended to prohibit such fed Enumerated Powers Doctrine, and (2) the Bill of Rights – specifically the Ninth and Tenth Am

Concerning the first, the Constitution authorizes Congress to address only eighteen specifically individually listed) areas and responsibilities; this is called the Enumerated Powers Doctrine. A Jefferson:

Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare but is restrained to those . . it was never meant they should provide for that welfare but by the exercise of the enumerate

Many other Founders were equally outspoken about Congress’ limitations under the Enumerat this doctrine was so well understood that in America’s first several decades, presidents had on departments: the Secretary of State, the Secretary of War, the Secretary of the Treasury, and th (occasionally there was also a separate Secretary of the Navy, but many presidents often place War). Today, however, there are almost four times as many cabinet level positions, including a Labor, Commerce, Housing, Education, Transportation, Energy, and many others. 8 Each of th important two centuries ago, but because the Constitution had placed these areas under the juri there was no federal presence involved in them.

Concerning the second point (the Bill of Rights), the Founding Fathers – dedicated students of human nature that they were – knew that the federal government would invariably try to step b they therefore added the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the Constitution, directly stipulating listed in the Constitution were to remain under the jurisdiction of the states and local governm areas such as education, criminal justice, energy, agriculture, and many others. As Thomas Jef

boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition. 9 James Madison agreed:

I declare it as my opinion that [if] the power of Congress be established in the latitude contend very foundations . . . of the limited government established by the people of America. 10 Jefferson further explained:

Our country is too large to have all its affairs directed by a single government. Public servants under the eye of their constituents . . . will invite the public agents to corruption, plunder, and augmentation of the field for jobbing, speculating, plundering, office-building, and office-hunt assumption of all the state powers into the hands of the federal government! 11 As Jefferson summarized it: The states can best govern our home concerns, and the [federal] government our foreign ones.

Significantly, health care issues often arose in early America – as when various dangerous fev ravaging American cities and killing scores of citizens. Concerning health care issues, the Fou domestic health care into the hands of the state governments, leaving issues of international he federal government. As Thomas Jefferson affirmed, the federal government was “to certify wi sailing from a foreign port, the state of health respecting this fever which prevails at the place “the state authorities [are] charged with the care of the public health.” 13 Under the Constitutio domestic health care issues, and the federal government foreign ones.

I write to you tonight in hopes that you will join in filing suit against the new health care law. doesn't make much money but works hard to pay for my own Heath care coverage, I fear a gov being a protector to a tyrant. As I and other New Mexicans will soon lose our current coverage government program. I do not believe as a free man we should be force by a government to pu want. I believe a government should be by the people, for the people and not bearing over the new health care bill will not be cheaper and will lead to shortages, rationing and increased taxe worker. I also believe the new law also gives tax breaks to special interest groups/states and is like me. Our founders would not have been in favor of this law. Our country is base on the pur government guarantee of it. All this bill does is to force people to purchase something they don Washington promises to help us with this bill while stealing control of our happiness. Four tho could be fix I say that you must have a foundation for it to stand and this bill isn’t it. New Mex reform but this bill isn’t it. It valuates our most basic freedoms and makes us servants of the st America’s founding has our government force us to purchase something just because we live h have lower cost by simple allowing people to have more choices then fewer ones. Allowing pe anyone except the special interest and Washington’s control over our lives. Please help me put government in Washington needs to tell us how to live our lives.

Mr. Bart Stupak of Michigan has decided to retire in the prime of his political strength and foc face the voters over his support over the "Health-Care Reform" law...

I hope you can show integrity over party loyalty and join the other AG's in challenging the cle passed 'health care' makeover. I, Sherrel Carryer, am NM Voter and Tax payer, I believe that the recent Healthcare bill passed UNCONSTITUTIONAL for the following reasons: 1) violation of States' Rights to regulate he and forces the states to submit to Federal Taxation and Regulation inforced by IRS with Direc accounts. 2) It forces the State's residents to purchase healthcare against their will. 3) Congress the law. 4) Federal Law cannot force States to pay for ABORTION AGAINST the States' resid

Representative's voted against their constiuent's will when they voted for this healthcare bill, a WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. They should all be recalled from their office and thrown ou put in place that WILL REPRESENT their VOTERS WILL.

I feel this health care bill should be fought against. The only people it helps are the people unw makes my health care worse exponentially compared to what I had. I worked hard and got deg and good health care came with that. Now I have to pay more to get less and the handouts to th get bigger.

Dear Attorney General King: Please file suit opposing the Federal health care legislation. Due to the "mandate to buy" provi forced to purchase health insurance whether they wish to do so or not. This violates our rights legislation is unconstitutional. The IRS will enforce this "tax" to private industry. "Taxation without representation" is most c in the Declaration of Independence, and the U.S. Constitution was structured to prevent such a The present healthcare legislation places undue control of government, business, and individua particular industry, the insurance industry. Furthermore, the Federal healthcare legislation will place an undue burden on the young and th for health insurance they cannot afford. The poor and the young, who are trying to start their li for food and shelter. How can they afford this other expense, especially if they wish to remain programs such as Medicaid?

Sincerely, Anne Fitzpatrick MD, Family Medicine Albuquerque I urge you to resist requests to join with other AGs/states in a lawsuit against the federal gover recently passed health reform legislation. That legislation is particularly helpful to NM, given highest rate of uninsured in the country. In addition, given the current fiscal crisis in NM, poli simply are not a good use of taxpayer money. Don't even think of spending our time and money joining the lawsuit against health reform. Th one of the greatest changes for the gente of New Mexico in a long time. I'm a physician, and if of "I can't afford it" health care horror stories. Please ignore these annoying partisans who wan independent, or as it prints out in our state, "DTS"= decline to state). Thanks, Dr Elaine. I urge Attorney General King to avoid joining the lawsuits against health care reform. Althoug support individual liberties, I believe the opposite is true. The main reason why the governmen health insurance is that it costs us more otherwise, and has already resulted in extra taxes. In N has a surcharge of $2,300 and every individual plan a surcharge of $1,000 to pay for the health have health insurance. This is in addition to the municipal, county and state taxes that are dedi uncompensated care. Also, hospitals add surcharges to what they charge others in order to help care. So, people with health insurance are paying a hefty price for those who want to exercise insurance.

When we look at the issue from this perspective, the shoe is on the other foot: the folks who w to buy health insurance are infringing on the rights of others in a big way. . 4/19/2010 10:50:31

W. Peplinski DOM The Health Care Reform bill is good for New Mexicans. Do not bow to pressure to challenge i changes it begins to make in the health insurance industry and health care in general. I want to go on record in support of the Health Care Bill recently passed by Congress. It doesn for, but it is a step in the right direction. Thanks,

Bette Betts Santa Fe, NM I strongly support the recently passed health care reform bill. As a state with some of the most heavily rural state, we will benefit in untold ways from the provisions in the bill. The lawsuit p attack the health care bill seems politically motivated and we should not spend public dollars w financial crisis to engage in a politically motivated lawsuit. I for one am so pleased that we finally got some health reform. We have needed it for so long Sincerely, Karen Hastings

I am very supportive of health care reform, and realize how important health care is for our na Mexico. Dear Attorney General Gary King, I am writing again and this time I am asking you for your decision on whether or not you will Generals across the nation and protect the citizens of New Mexico.

I would also like to ask you to file suit against this unconstitutional legislation and demand tha govern within the scope of their Constitutional authority and no more.

Time and again, the Supreme Court has ruled that all laws contrary to the Constitution are null uphold your oath of office and stand on the Constitution and oppose this socialist policy.

I would also ask that you, as a public servant, remember the rights of the citizens are not grant rather are endowed them by their Creator and therefore cannot be infringed on by the governm people to choose for themselves, their plan of health care and choices, or to choose NOT to ha

Were the state of New Mexico NOT in the business of "socialism" with medicaid, and redistri medicaid also, governments at all levels would not be addressing the issue of health care.

I would point out to you that the only differences between welfare and slavery is one is done u government and the other was abolished. What, I would ask, is the difference between the gov someone else's "needs" by taxing me, and giving my "property, ie., money", to someone else, a home and picks and chooses what of mine he wants for himself? Both take from the fruits of M compensation, enslaving me. Both take from the fruits of MY labor without my permission. T somewhere in the line of our history, our government has decided for themselves this "legal" s will say that it is NOT.

Again, I would ask that you soul search and reaffirm your Oath to the Constitution and separat allegiances. You are charged with the duty of protecting, preserving and defending the most sa People, our United States Constitution, as well as the New Mexico Constitution. Both of these between the government and the people. If these documents are not going to be upheld by gov those elected and appointed to serve the Public and replace the individuals with men of honor

I ask you Sir, when you took your Oath, did you mean it? Will you be a man of your word and the People of New Mexico against this invasion of our private rights? I think you will. I hope y am counting on you to stand up for us. Sincerely, Jeanie Coates 2637 N. Albertson Hobbs NM 88240 575.318.6333 My name is Gary Popplewell. I reside in Tularosa, NM. Address - P.O.

Federal Government and its attempt to control our citizen's rights to choice and liberty. Stand a show the New Mexico spirit of independance. Why is it taking so long to come to the conclusion to stand with other states to oppose the Oba un constitional? Our own state government has problems enough meeting the current obligatio own additional mandates from Washington. Government should not be taking more and more is your backbone and what color is it? I trust you will join the other states that have filed suit against the Obamacare Health Care bill government take over of my health care. I would like to know where you stand with the state o afford this, nor is it good for America. Sandra Emerson Aztec, NM Good day. As someone who works in the Healthcare Financial area, I believe it is about time t into place a plan to cover subtanially all our citizens for healthcare service. The devil will be in implementation of the law is concerned. I feel it would be not in the best interest of the county taxpaying, voting citizen, I would strenuously object to New Mexico participating in any laws implementation of this law. The law was passed by the legislative bodies that were legally elec U.S. I support the federal health legislation and NM state should not file a lawsuit against it.

I want to know why you havent files suit against the health care bill ? It is unconstitutional and obamacare( socialized medicine)..What is the hold up on filing? I was excited to hear the Health Care Bill passed, with it Congress passes Elder Justice Act. B father of Elder Abuse,financial exploitation, I feel a passion for pursuing efforts to mitigate El is needed to confront abuse, Justice for this offense is necessary to stop it! Does the State plan to or have the power to address the real issue of Healthcare?

. 4/25/2010 17:48:14

The Issue is "access to affordable healthcare" which does not appears to be happening. The sol been "access to Health Insurance" which is a continuation of corrupt monopolistic practices.

Since the Insurance Industry has now established an 80% monopoly on the HC Industries Clin buying their "insurance" product we are denied access to any alternative solutions. The typical service I desire; I merely would like to get the necessary services I need and will gladly pay fo of Doctors and Nurses; there are relatively no options for obtaining care unless one buys Insur

The Lack of Anti-Trust and Competition Law enforcement by the Gov't at any level has led to appears not to be about the people's needs; but about continuing the monopolistic control by th Healthcare Service Industry - while the Federal Gov't regulates out alternative options of self-i choice.

I would contend that the same Conflict of Interest of why doctors are not allowed to own/opera would apply to the Insurance Industry. The strong linkage between these two aspects has deve and enable this situation. While the Insurance industry leverage their Government Medicare co Employee Insurance, and other Gov't mandated practices in order to buy out or develop their M Service facilities.

It concerns me greatly that we do not have seperate competition of Insurance (An optional fina competition at the Facilities level (A healthcare provider). More troubling is that most legislati appears the Government has not been representing the people; but instead representing, suppor monopoly to the detriment of the people

While I support Free Markets; when will the Competition Laws and Anti-Trust Laws be enforc exploit the people? The Federal Law is now Mandating this solution at a State level.

I respectfully request that the State of NM challenge the Constitutionally of the Federal Gover Healthcare with a mandated Insurance solution as our only option. I also request that the State own Competition protection and Anti-trust that has led to a monopoly in our own State.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Because of the Elder Justice Act, I hope New Mexico Elders can be protected from the crimes exploitation. I can't seem to get a good response for my situation? Justice is needed for this cau Otherwise it will continue and get worse if that is possible it is already severe. I understand NM may join other states in a lawsuit opposing/questioning the recently passed fe Providing healthcare for more people is a good and important step in the right direction. This l urge you to not support it.

Joseph Salack The federal government has overstepped their authority in mandating health care. When did th authorize them to force citizens to purchase ANYTHING! I hope New Mexico will join the ot this bill. There are numerous issues that our tax dollars should be spent on and paying for heal too lazy to work and provide for themselves is not one of them. Also this bill will increase New creating more people on assistance and taxes will also go up at the state level. The economic s nation is also the same status that a large portion of the population is suffering from and we ne increase spending. Dear Attorney General King:

4/29/2010 14:43:32 . 4/29/2010 19:53:01 .

I am disressed that the nation has been sold to the insurance companies like Blue Cross Blue S

I support efforts to sue the Federal Government on behalf of the citizens of New Mexico regar Every day, we hear more and more about how this bill will further drive up the deficit and crea bureaucracy; and now, even some of the Obama Administration/Congress is admitting to ratio not happen with this bill.

This bill was badly conceived from the beginning, done behind closed doors and against the ve have to pay for this nightmare. We spoke out in many, many polls throughout the entire health country. The people of this country said that we did not want this massive bill, only to have Co it through anyway, AGAINST OUR WILL. That is not democracy in any way one can imagin buy insurance under pain of a fine, or possibly jail time (who knows), is unconstitutional. The of private enterprise except as a regulator. Our government has greatly overreached its bounds

Please, on behalf of the people of this State, join all of the other, both democrat and republican fight against this injustice. Don't let us be forced into something that will eventually cause the

system that may be broken, but it is at least functional for a majority of Americans. If this heal repealed or mitigated or declared unconstitutional, we will eventually be saddled with incredib healthcare system that would only rival that of a third world nation. Thank you for your consideration. Claude Peterson, MBA

Mr King: As NM Attorney general I believe that you should join as other state attorney generals have do government forcing citizen to purchase heath insurance. The federal government has no right t purchase a product from the private sector. If let unchecked, the government could force citize make and color of car. While this seems far fetched, this is what could happen. You as the repr state has the obligation to protect citizens as a form of consumer protection. Thank You of this Killington Rd NW Albuquerque, NM Do not try to sue the US Federal Government over health care. We need health care and we do Heather Wilson. It may be easy for them, but for most of us New Mexicans we need health car great to have a public option, but at least we are moving in the right direction. SO please do no health care reform. Thanks Julie Salas
