Back in ye olden days, before Ed Morrissey’s dainty little panties got in a bunch and he swooned into a frightful faint, I had pointed out on a number of occasions the fatal Achilles heel of Obamacare. It is and was a minor yet significant little fact that no less that the arch mage of evil, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, John Glover Roberts, Jr painted across the sky in 100 mile tall brightly lit glowing neon letters.
All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills.
Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to the President of the United States; if he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a law. But in all such cases the votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered on the journal of each House respectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a law.
Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case of a bill.
The abomination known as “The Affordable Health Care Act” Obamacare for short, did not originate in the House of Representatives and was declared therefore by the Supreme Court to be Unconstitutional when they declared Obamacare to be constitutional because it was a Tax. Sadly the GOP Leadership under John “Crybaby” Boehnor is both cowardly and utterly corrupt and despite Chief Justice Robert’s all but taking them by the hand and showing them how to render Obamacare null and void.
It has become painfully and indisputably clear that the Democrat’s in Republican Cloths like John McVain, John Boenher and Mitch McConnell have absolutely no intention what-so-ever of opposing any of the Democrat/Marxist Cloward-Pivens strategy driven agenda. It is however quiet fortunate that not all elected Republican representatives are as morally corrupt as the McVain, Boenhor and McConnell.
Ted Cruz and Rand Paul it would appear have actually read the US Constitution and fully intend to use it to oppose the Democrat/Marxist agenda of Obama and the corrupt GOP leadership.
Movement to defund ObamaCare grows
By Elise Viebeck – 07/25/13 02:50 PM ET
A growing group of congressional Republicans is pushing leaders to defund ObamaCare in the next government spending bill, setting the stage for a showdown in September, when the current continuing resolution expires.
Twelve Senate Republicans sent a letter Thursday to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) declaring they would not support a government funding bill unless it excludes funds for the healthcare law.
And 66 House Republicans, more than one quarter of the conference, have signed on to a similar letter from Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) urging Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) not to allow votes on a government funding bill unless it chokes off money for the Affordable Care Act.
Supporters see these efforts as their last chance to cripple healthcare reform before its major provisions take effect in October. But the government will shut down after Sept. 31 unless the House, Senate and the White House reach an agreement on another continuing resolution or appropriations bill.
The best part about this plan, is that it has been made possible by the corrupt leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid themselves. The United States Constitution requires that the House and the Senate produce and pass a budget every single year. By intentionally avoiding that constitutional requirement Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and their conspirators in corruption within the GOP leadership have made it possible for those within the Republican Party who are still honorable to hoist Reid, Pelosi, Boehnor and McConnell upon their own petards.
