Why this petition matters

Started by Joshua Hight

We, the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do with this petition demand upon our representative Government a mandatory baseline system of standardized healthcare services to provide primary and general healthcare to the taxpayers/citizens.

The central goal of any government should be the protection of its citizens. This protection is accomplished through various means granted to the Government by The Constitution of the United States. The fundamental human right to live should not be subject to economic status. As a representative government funded by the taxes of its citizens and sworn to protect the United States Constitution, the protection of the people being limited to military and security forces is unconstitutional.

Exempli Gratia

Article I

Section 8

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts, and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States, but all Duties, Imposts, and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States

This section explicitly gives Congress the right to lay and collect taxes, pay debts, and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States. Funding for the baseline medical needs of the citizens of the United States of America should be paramount if their representative Government truly and faithfully cares about the common Defense and general Welfare of those citizens.

The United States of America is a worldwide economic superpower bordering on hegemony. The fact that we do not lead the world in baseline medical protections for citizens in either policy or allocated budget should shame American elected representatives.

We, the People of the United States, have the right to petition as guaranteed in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which specifically prohibits Congress from abridging "the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." To demand this of our elected Government.

According to the Congressional Research Service, since the Constitution was written,

The right of petition has expanded. It is no longer confined to demands for "a redress of grievances" in any accurate meaning of these words. Still, it comprehends demands for an exercise by the Government of its powers to further the interest and prosperity of the petitioners and their views on politically contentious matters. The right extends to the "approach of citizens or groups of them to administrative agencies (which are both creatures of the legislature and arms of the executive) and to courts, the third branch of Government. Certainly, the right to petition extends to all departments of the Government. The right of court access is one aspect of the right of petition."

Why do less capable national economies have baseline healthcare services funded by the Government available to all citizens, and the united states does not?

The requested resolution is for the Federal Government to create a fund to provide baseline healthcare for all American Citizens. The funds will be dispersed at the state level on a per capita basis to be administered to the respective state populations. The citizens shall maintain the option to go to specialists outside the provided Federal funding. These private physicians will have the opportunity to offer their services outside of the infrastructure of the Federal medical system and bill their patients accordingly. Canada and other nations have sustainable models for accomplishing this. If the United States Government cannot conquer the logistics of this demand. Then you shall subpoena economic professionals to assist in this.

This hereby is an official grievance requested to be rectified by both branches of Congress of the United States of America. To be answered to the American people with a plan to immediately provide baseline medical services for its citizens.
