40 members of the House of Representatives just filed a suit that supports a legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act ("ACA" alias, ObamaCare) based on the "Origination Clause." This clause states:
"All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills."
They are suing because not a single word if the ACA actually originated in the House of Representatives. At the time of passage, Harry Reid (D, NV) used a legislative "trick." He took a bill that was passed in the House of Representatives and stripped all language out of it and substituted it with the Affordable Care Act language instead.
Only the House of Representatives can pass laws that contain revenue. Hence, Harry Reid may have broken the law of the land.
Ironically, this suit may go before the Supreme Court and allow Justice Roberts to have another look at ObamaCare. Maybe this time he will get it right!
Progressive's Motto: "The ends justify the means." Lie, cheat, deceive, steal, break the law, do anything to get it YOUR way.
America is slowly waking up. Let's hope it's not too late!
