From HR 1645

SEC. 2. THEFT BY PUBLIC OFFICIALS UNDER COLOR OF LAW.

    (a) IN GENERAL- Chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following:

`Sec. 249. Theft under color of law

    `Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom, deprives any person of any property shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both. If the property is a controlled substance, as defined for the purposes of the Controlled Substances Act, the penalty for an offense under this section shall be the same as for the offense of possessing such substance under that Act.’.
    (b) CLERICAL AMENDMENT- The table of sections at the beginning of chapter 13 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the end the following new item:
    • `249. Theft under color of law.’.

My argument against ZeroCare begins in the Constitution which does not grant legislative or executive authority to force citizens to buy into a national health care plan.  It does not grant authority to the federal government to tax for implementation of a national health care plan.   The 10th Amendment leaves all authority not vested in the Constitution to the States and to the People thereof.  This alone should be enough to seal the fate of any nationalized health care plan / system.

Next, let me use the following to throw a wrench into the Pelosi, Reid, and Zero’s plans.  This comes from HR 1645 cited above.  It is a little known amendment to US Title 18, Chapter 13, Sec. 249.  It states very clearly, in plain english “Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation or custom, deprives any person of any property shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both.”

Money = Property

deprivation of money = deprivation of property = theft under color of law.
