Yesterday, March 22, 2011, we celebrated an inauspicious anniversary in the United States. Unfortunately, yesterday was the first anniversary of the passage of Obamacare.

Obamacare represents the pinnacle of what a detached, megalomaniac legislature can do with unchecked power to a unengaged citizenry. It is possibly the worse contortion and distortion of the Constitution that has been or ever will be enacted as a law. We knew we were in trouble when the almost-lifelike Nancy Pelosi told us that the Congress would need to pass Obamacare before we could see what was in it.

Well, from all the bribes required to attain it’s passage to all the “Easter Eggs” hidden within its voluminous pages, we are indeed in trouble. And we won’t know how much trouble we’re in until the entire law is rolled out over the next few years. See, the tax levies begin NOW…but the real goodies don’t become available until 2015 and beyond. This staggering of taxes and “benefits” was a clever ploy by greedy Democrats to make the cost of Obamacare appear smaller than it actually was. And by delaying the roll out of this program with time, the damaging features of the bill could be ameliorated by the “good” being done for targeted special interest groups and minorities.

Hopefully the present Congress won’t take its eyes off the prize — the de-funding and eventual repeal of Obamacare — for a single moment. There is nothing, and I do mean nothing, that is more important to occupy their collective endeavors. Without Obamacare our country is in deep fiscal trouble. With Obamacare, our descent into the abyss of insolvency is accelerated at a much greater rate.

We certainly don’t need another Obamacare anniversary visited upon us. We need to replace this event with another more beneficial remembrance…the day Obamacare was torn up roots and all and then deposited in the trash bin of history.

Now that would be a day to celebrate!
