Congress has no right to write laws about health care. I know because I've read the US Constitution. The 535 Stooges act as if they've never read it.
See Article 1, Section 8, listing the only powers We, the people, gave the Congress. Everything else, according to the Tenth Amendment is off limits to Congress.

If you really think Congress has the Constitutional authority to take over health care in America, name one thing the Congress cannot do. Or do you think Congress can do anything it wants? If you believe that, why pretend we have a Constitution? Is Congress omnipotent? Is there no limit to its powers? Is that what the founding fathers gave us?
Our politicians forget that we, the people, wrote our Constitution. We don’t get our rights from the government. God gave us our rights. The government gets its rights from us.

 "Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare but  
   only those specifically enumerated."
          ~ Thomas Jefferson
I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents."  
           ~James Madison
"With respect to the words 'general welfare,' I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers enumerated in the Constitution connected with them.  To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."
            ~ James Madison
"In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but    
   bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."
        ~ Thomas Jefferson
An American who believes the government has dominion over us betrays our Constitution.

I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing
        ~ Thomas Jefferson
"What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms."
