Reaching Critical Mass
America is the victim of a vicious con man! Obama and his minions are attempting to subjugate the overwhelming will of the people, trying every trick in the book to push through this healthcare bill, and not only this but cap and trade, amnesty for illegals and a national ID card, just to name a few. Obama tells lies on top of lies hoping to snooker the American people to support this garbage, but the genie is out of the bottle. We know the truth and we are fighting back with all the resources at our disposal.
Liberals are now going to try the “slaughter solution”:
Each bill that comes before the House for a vote on final passage must be given a rule that determines things like whether the minority would be able to offer amendments to it from the floor.
In the Slaughter Solution (named after Rep. Louise Slaughter, D-NY), the rule would declare that the House “deems” the Senate version of Obamacare to have been passed by the House. House members would still have to vote on whether to accept the rule, but House members would be able to say they only voted for a rule, not for the bill itself.
This is just another slap at the American people and the Constitution but it is the biggest slap so far and some are saying that this violates the Constitution: Article 1, Section 7, which says:
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.
I can’t remember in my lifetime when things were as bad as they are now, things have gone way past worse and we have entered a surreal world. I no longer think of Obama as a Marxist or even a socialist; I see him as an autocrat. He is calling all the shots, making up the rules as he goes and trampling anyone who gets in his way. I don’t think the country can wait until November; the anger in this country is reaching critical mass. We have to take this country back and show this government who their employers are and who pay their salaries, and if we have to march into DC and fire these bastards on the spot, so be it.
