Constitutional Lawyer: ObamaCare Treats People Like Pollution

You might think you’re a citizen with certain unalienable rights.  But in the eyes of Pres. Obama, you’re no better than an acid raindrop . . .

On today’s Good Morning America, constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley–no raging conservative he–raised doubts as to the constitutionality of the way ObamaCare negates state law and forces every American to buy a government-approved health insurance policy–under penalty of law.

Turley went on to explain how ObamaCare treats citizens like pollution: a problem to be dealt with.

JONATHAN TURLEY: Congress often does pre-empt state law or pushes it aside in areas like the environment. What’s different here is that they’re treating individual citizens almost like polluting factors that amount to an interstate problem.
