An Open Letter to President Barack Obama

Dear Mr. President, On your website I found the following statement: “We must fix a broken health care system . . ." Regarding this initiative, I am very concerned that you and Congress are overstepping the bounds of your job description as outlined in the Constitution. When taking the oath of office, you promised to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States." There is nothing in the Constitution directing the Federal government to “fix" anything, much less a privately operated and freely chosen system of medical treatment.
