A Democrat congressman from Illinois says when it comes to the health-care reform plan adopted by Congress and signed into law by President Obama, he just doesn't concern himself with what the Constitution requires.

The comment came in a heated exchange recorded recently between Rep. Phil Hare, D-Ill., and constituents.

While being pressed on the complications of the "Obamacare" plan, as critics have dubbed it, he was asked, "Where in the Constitution?"

"I don't worry about the Constitution on this to be honest," Hare said.

Instead, he said, he worries about peoples' lives:

"It's people's lives. It's people's children. It's when you take your child to the hospital and you think it's really bad and your heart is thumping, thumping, thumping while you're waiting for the doctor to tell you what it is and then the doctor comes out and says it's going to be ok, except you don't have insurance and you're stuck with a $10 or $15,000 bill. …"

When the congressman stated he doesn't concern himself with the Constitution, one of the constituents muttered, "Jackpot, brother."

"I care more about the people that are dying every day that don't have health insurance," Hare said.
