Democrats have taken another bold step towards dismantling the United States of America as it has been revealed that House Rules Chairman Louise Slaughter (D-NY) are attempting to pass the extremely unpopular Obamacare healthcare bill without it properly being voted on by both House and Senate.
Article 1, Section 7 of the constitution is clearly states how a bill must be passed:
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.
Or, if you don't wish to read all of that above I have conveniently inserted the Schoolhouse Rock, simplified explanation which I thoroughly enjoyed as a child.
This is, by far, the biggest 'in your face' smackdown of the Constitution, which congressional members swear to uphold, that has been undertaken by the Obama administration. It has been obvious for some time that two of the branches of our government are corrupt. If the statist liberals persist in this unconstitutional behavior, it will soon be up to our third branch of government (judicial) to prove that they are not corrupt. Some very difficult decisions will have to be made by Americans if all three branches prove to no longer be a representative republic.
