Slaughtering the Constitution: The Health Care bill pushed through without a vote?
Wednesday March 10, “House Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter is prepping to help usher the healthcare overhaul through the House and potentially avoid a direct vote on the Senate overhaul bill, the chairwoman said Tuesday.” Apparent is the disdain that our current “progressive” members of Congress are showing for the Constitution, which in Article 1 Section 7 clearly states the following, “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.” Local Cochise County residents are questioning what this will mean, after all the Constitution is the very base of all legal and civic related formation in our country today.
While many Americans do agree that some oversight or even changes must occur with the current health care set-up it should be noted that the reasons it has not been able to pass so far is that only one side, the Obama/ Pelosi love affair has been unwilling to waver on various agendas. Republicans are willing to work with the Democrats as long as certain issues are dealt with such as state funded abortion and more. Obviously, there are issues with the current bill being pushed at this time, and for Libertarians like me those issues are not based in arguments regarding abortion or end of life agreements. No, we are far more interested in how the nation will be funding this.
In this case however, if this attempt by Slaughter is successful it will completely unravel the Constitution, someone should remind this Representative that she swore an oath to uphold the very Constitution she is now attempting to dismiss. In addition, while they are at it remind Obama who he works for and represents! This is yet another great example of why we must elect people who truly represent the active voting population, yet another reminder of why we need to get rid of the dead weight that is Congress and Senate today. It is time to elect true constitutionally bound representatives of the people. Remember if it smells like an old politician and it looks like an old politician than likely it is just an old politician!
If something as this is done it will be just a small step to a dictatorship after all what is it in this great Democratic Republic that keeps the government in its place and ensures the rights of the people? I hope that you answered this as I have the people, the Constitution, and a healthy dose of respect for the role you provide the people as their representative!
