The function of the federal government is to do those things that must be done, but cannot be done by the states or by the people. These things are enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. Healthcare and insurance is something that has always been provided quite well by the people or by the states as Medicaid. It is not something that must be done by the federal government.
 
We are being told by the regime in Washington that people without health insurance cannot get medical care. What nonsense! Health insurance and healthcare are two entirely different things. By law, no one in this country whether here legally or illegally can be denied healthcare.
 
Among the enumerated powers (Article 1, Section 8) is the commerce clause which grants to Congress the power to regulate Interstate Commerce. This clause has been used and abused time and time again as constitutional authorization for laws that are clearly unconstitutional. They used it to justify Obamacare even though health insurance is restricted to the individual states and does not cross state lines. (It is not interstate commerce.)
 
Let's take a look at the text of this clause. Section 8 begins with: "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;"
 
Notice the semicolon after "United States" and at the end of this first clause. I'll come back to that later. It's the third clause that should concern us right now which states: "To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;"
 
At this point it is important to define "commerce" which seems to be a matter of confusion in our government. Here are a couple of dictionary definitions of "commerce":
