Andrew McCarthy: "Terrorists Get Appeals, Obamacare Patients Don’tAn unchecked executive tosses Americans into a legal black hole."
From the same crowd that fetishized courtroom appeals for terrorists--never in US history having been ever, ever thought appropriate--we have the real Constitutional rights for Americans to judicial process smashed, left out, de-nied under Obamacare:
"Perusing the Democrats’ proposal to usurp the health-care industry, one-sixth of what used to be known as the private sector, that history rushes back to mind. Pardon me if I can’t help thinking: This sure looks an awful lot like a legal black hole.#adOne might have thought we’d run out of blank checks for Barack Obama by now.
"But if “our values” really include judicial oversight, then Obamacare doesn’t have much to do with our values. And this time, the people being stripped of their basic legal rights are not America-hating terrorists. To borrow the left’s nightmare rhetoric, Obamacare is Gitmo for all Americans.
"Tucked into several pages of this epic monstrosity (H.R. 3200 is here—if you can get it to load) are various “limitation on review” provisions. They are designed to vest President Obama with unilateral, non-appealable control over available treatments and their costs. That is, Americans will have no recourse to challenge errant or capricious executive-branch decisions in the courts."
