As a History teacher, veteran, and American, I have read the Constitution a few times, and I have yet to see the word "healthcare" any where in it. The American people are creating a government that is simply too big. They are are creating the very government that our founding fathers fled from. It is not the government's job to take care of us. It never has been and it never should be. Barack Obama knew when he and the Democrats shoved the Affordable Care Act down our throats that it would never last; that it was ill conceived, and would bankrupt the country. However, that was not his or the Democrats concern at the time. Their primary goal, as progressives (i.e., socialists) was to raise healthcare to the level of an entitlement. They did this because they knew that if they could do that, it would be practically impossible to ever get it removed; thus the new saying coming from conservatives, "repeal and replace". Yes, it should be repealed, but no, it should not be replaced. America simply can not afford it unless it continues on the path of wealth redistribution which will lead to our downfall. That's my take, you are certainly entitled to your own. I do know that the Constitution does talk about that.
