FRC to Host Lecture on Why the Health Care Bills Are Unconstitutional

"The Irrelevant Constitution: How the Obama-Reid-Pelosi Health Care Bill Violates America's Charter Text."

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Thursday at 11 a.m. ET, Family Research Council will host a lecture featuring Family Research Council Senior Fellow Ken Blackwell and George Mason Law Professor Nelson Lund to discuss how both House and Senate health care bills violate America's guiding document.  


Serious objections to the constitutionality of the Democrats' plans were raised recently by Mr. Blackwell, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Ken Klukowski of the American Civil Rights Union in the Wall Street Journal. They noted that the Obama-supported legislation effectively renders states little more than subdivisions of the federal government.

Blackwell will discuss how the Obama-Reid-Pelosi health legislation would diminish constitutional protections of state authority and Lund the explicit constitutional defects of the measures that have passed both chambers of Congress.

Ken Blackwell is the Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment at the Family Research Council. He serves on the board of directors of the Club for Growth and the National Taxpayers Union. His public service includes terms as Mayor of Cincinnati, Undersecretary at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Commission. In 1994, he became the first African-American elected to a statewide executive office in Ohio when he was elected Treasurer of state. He subsequently was elected Secretary of State, and in 2006, was the Republican nominee for Governor.

Nelson Lund is the Patrick Henry Professor of Constitutional Law and the Second Amendment at George Mason Law School. Professor Lund has written widely in the field of constitutional law, including articles on constitutional interpretation, federalism, separation of powers, the Second Amendment, the Commerce Clause, the Speech or Debate Clause, the Equal Protection Clause, and the Uniformity Clause. In addition, he has published articles in the fields of employment discrimination and civil rights, the legal regulation of medical ethics, and the application of economic analysis to legal institutions and legal ethics.
