SLAUGHTER OF U.S. DEMOCRACY SCHEDULED
CONSTITUTION IN CONGRESSIONAL SHREDDER
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is about to wave her magic wand and socialize a major portion of the U.S. economy in violation of the Constitution.
House Republican Chairman Greg Walden says that Americans are now witnessing the “slaughtering of democracy.”
“Slaughtering” is a reference to Louise Slaughter (D-NY) who has come up with a scheme to package the Senate version of ObamaCare and the House Reconciliation Bill into one measure that can be enacted into law without a single “yea’ or “nay” from an elected official.
The waving of the wand is set to occur on Sunday night.
The Traditional Values Coalition warns that Mrs. Pelosi’s magical act will oblige all Americans to purchase Obama government-run health care and will produce the following consequences:
· This government takeover of health care will affect 100% of Americans – born and unborn – for generations to come. Mrs. Pelosi revealed that a package of amendments to the Senate-passed health care bill would include a new tax on unearned income. Pelosi said this tax would cover all unearned income, “whatever category that is.”
· Obama and Pelosi have intentionally deceived the American people about taxpayer-funding of abortion. It is a fact that this bill authorizes an unprecedented, profound and alarming increase of tax money for other people’s abortions – the largest increase of government-funded abortion since Roe v. Wade. Is this what you want?
· The Constitution will be deemed null and void since a precedent will be set for legislation to be approved without a single vote from a Congressman or Senator under the so-called “Slaughter Rule.” Article I, Sec. 7 of the Constitution requires that for a bill to become law it must be voted on by both chambers of Congress and then sent to the President who signs into law or vetoes it. The section states:
“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.”
