So you say you don’t like Obamacare, it’s unconstitutional. You think Chief Justice Roberts got it wrong, legislated from the bench and called a penalty a tax so that the bill would survive. You know that if they called the personal mandate a tax back in 2010, the bill would never have passed the first time. The mere size of this power grab, control over 1/6th of our economy, scares the dickens out of you. You worry about what further encroachments on your liberty are in store.
You’re right to be scared and a damn sight more to be mad! Obamacare is unconstitutional and the SCOTUS decision simply ignores what the constitution makes inconvenient. The Origination Clause of the Constitution clearly states that all bills involving the raising of revenue must originate in the House of Representatives, that body which is closest and most accountable to the citizens. H.R. 3590 was a bill introduced in the House by Representative Charlie Rangel that gave a tax credit to military and certain foreign-service federal employees who sold a house in a job related move. It passed the House 416-0 and went to the Senate. Harry Reid promptly gutted the bill entirely including the title and then under the House bill number inserted a whole new bill and title, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Obamacare). Here is a good article explaining the violation of the Origination Clause in detail: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/29/Justice-Roberts .
So there you have it, Obamacare was given life by a shell game and last month its life was saved by another shell game.
How do you vent some of that anger and allay those fears? How do we set things straight? It’s as easy as making 3 phone calls. Simply call this number (202)-225-0600 and ask Speaker Boehner to go ahead with the vote to repeal Obamacare, since this will put everyone’s position on Obamacare in the House on record going into the election. Then immediately file suit against Obamacares violation of the Origination Clause. Second call Majority Leader Eric Cantor at (202)-225-2815 or (202)-225-4000 and ask him to do the same. Then call your Congressman via the Capitol Switchboard at (202)-225-3121 or (202)-224-3121 or Toll Free (877)-762-8762. Each and every member of the House of Representatives has “standing” in this matter to bring a suit. Always be courteous.
So now you’re feeling a little better, but everyone knows that lawsuits can take a couple of years and the outcomes can be dicey as we just saw. So you ask yourself, “What else can I do?” Here is a short list that will be relatively painless between now and election day, especially when you compare to what the founders endured:
There you have it, a short list as promised. Remember always, we are right the left is wrong. In the end we win, they lose. When that will come is determined by the answer to this question, “If not you then who, if not now then when?” Let’s all pull together and make the November 6, 2012 election the shot that is heard around the world. Let’s drive a stake through the heart of liberal oppression, mediocrity and economic slavery and launch the beginning of a renewed era of freedom, economic opportunity and world leadership.
Together we can take this first giant step in securing our future and honoring our founding fathers’ legacy by turning our great Nation around.
