The Affordable Care Act (popularly known as "Obamacare") was intended to improve access to health care for Americans. As it turns out, the only access it has been successful in providing is giving fraudsters even more access to our tax dollars. According to an article published by Americans for Tax Reform, a report issued by the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General in December 2015 marks the 8th time in less than a year that HHS has raised concerns that taxpayer dollars meant to insure health care availability for Americans are instead funding waste, fraud, and abuse. Meanwhile, millions of Americans have lost their health insurance, had their options curtailed, or faced burdensome cost increases.
This should come as no surprise: federal programs are notorious for being ineffectual and wasteful. The ACA imposes over 20,000 pages worth of one-size-fits-all "solutions" on over 300 million people from New York City to Antelope, South Dakota. And only the most naive could believe that there are no favors to special interests buried in the mountain of paperwork.
That's why our Constitution specifies that these sorts of programs should be run by the States, where there is local input, accountability, and control. An Article V Convention is the only way to stop this kind of federal overreach and return control of social services to our own communities instead of some faceless, unelected bureaucrat working in a cubicle in Washington.
