( – During his speech at a recent National Press Club
luncheon, House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) said he is
introducing a constitutional amendment that would establish health care as “a right” for all Americans.

“We need a real serious bill and, by the way, the fundamental question, ‘Is health care a constitutional right?’” he said. “I mean, do you have a right to health care in the American system of government or not?”

“Well, we believe that people do and we’re introducing a constitutional amendment just to make it real clear so that you don’t have to infer or assume that that’s a given and all that.”

    As American history was attempted to be rewritten or interpreted by revisionists, so will be the Constitution. Fortunately, it’ll take much more strength than what this weak Congress has, regardless of their temporary majority status, to pass an Amendment.

    As the pendulum swings too far to the left, the cultural revolution that will move it back to the center-right will be that much more poweful.

    Let them keep pushing it…..
