Mark R. Levin, president of Landmark Legal Foundation, today issued a warning to the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives“Slaughter Rule” to enact H.R. 3590, the legislative version of President Obama’s healthcare proposal that has been previously approved by the Senate.
If this tactic is employed, Landmark will immediately sue the President, Attorney General Eric Holder and other relevant cabinet members to prevent them from instituting this unconstitutional contrivance.
“Landmark has already prepared a lawsuit that will be filed in federal court the moment the House acts. Such a brazen violation of the core functions of Congress simply cannot be ignored. Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution is clear respecting the manner in which a bill becomes law. Members are required to vote on this bill, not claim they did when they didn’t. The Speaker of the House and her lieutenants are temporary custodians of congressional authority. They are not empowered to do permanent violence to our Constitution.”

I fear the worst from this commie administration.
Obama is pushing our country to the brink.
The Constitution is if followed prevents tyranny. Obama has made no secret that he has little respect for the Constitution and views it as a "Charter of negative rights" he truly wishes our Constitution was more like the Soviet Union's Constitution, and we know how that turned out. Amazingly, Obama shows his arrogance on a daily basis and I get the feeling he views himself to be the Progressive Messiah, sent by the holy father Karl Marx.
He is bucking for a second American revolution!
As an American, I must say that I am astonished at the flagrant disregard of the Constitution that is being perpetrated by the Democrats. It is just shocking.
