Representative Louise Slaughter (D-NY) is the House rules chairwoman.  She, along with the Democratic leadership, has designed a rule regarding the health care bill that trashes the Constitution and openly shows the Fascist tendencies of the Democrat party.  This rule, called the Slaughter Solution (after her name, not because it slaughters the Constitution) will consider the Senate health care bill to have passed the House if a correction to the bill is passed.  For example, the house can vote on a separate bill that removes the “Cornhusker Kickback” from the Senate bill and by doing so, the entire Senate bill will be considered to have passed.  Sound very democratic doesn’t it?  Vote on a portion of the bill and by default, you passed the entire bill.

This will allow the Democrats to pass health care by only requiring lawmakers to vote on correcting a portion of the bill that everyone is already in favor of correcting.  Then, Democratic members of the house can tell their constituents that they didn’t vote for the health care bill, but only voted to remove the abortion funding or the Cornhusker Kickback.  This may help Democrats look better in their campaign commercials, but it is a direct violation of the supreme law of the land.

This scheme to pass a bill without voting on it violates article 1 section 7 of the United States Constitution, which states that before any bill can become law, it must be passed by both houses of Congress with a Yea or Nay vote.  If the Democrats go through with this rule change, it will be a bold faced attack on our Constitution and system of government.  In effect, the role of Congress and our history of representative government will be done away with because a vote will no longer be required to pass a bill.

Mark Levin, who happens to be one of my favorite talk radio hosts, has called for the expulsion of Representative Slaughter for her complete disregard for the Constitution that she took an oath to uphold (watch his video below).  I have to agree with him, she needs to be severely reprimanded or forced to resign.  Both parties have ignored the Constitution on many occasions, but this strikes at the very core of our system of government.  Passing a law without having the representatives of the people voting for it is tyranny.

Welcome to the United Fascist States of America.  I guess this is what President Obama meant when he said he was going to fundamentally change America.

    So, we have reached a point under Obama and Pelosi where OUTRIGHT ARMED REBELLION ,may be needed. How’s THAT for “Change”?!

  2. Matt says:

    This is yet another sign of what the left in this country is really all about. They are just setting themselves up for the fall in November, and I don’t mean the season.

    I think if they attempt this, there will be legal challenges. If and when they lose those challenges, it will go further in making Obama one of the most failed Presidents in history, if not the worst.

  3. Slaughter is a pig, her disregard for the Constitution sickens me. The Democrats must really hate our Republic and the principles of our Founding Fathers. Pig.

  4. John Carey says:

    I agree with Mark Levin, she needs to be removed from office. She is derelict in her duties because she is not supporting or defending the Constitution of the United States.

    I mean this is absolutely outrageous! How long are we going to stand for this?

  5. LD Jackson says:

    Do they really believe we will not learn what they are up to? How stupid do they think we are?

  6. Liberty says:

    In my opinion, they think we are so stupid that they need to make all of our major decisions for us.

  8. After all the healthcare bill only got an overwhelming majority of the vote in both houses, what kind representation is it when the majority can pass bills.
    Interesting fact about the healthcare bill, under it the number of abortions would go down as it would change the current out of pocket expenses from $17,000 to $25,000 for Childbirth to $400 to $500 vs $600 for an abortion.

    Project Savior,
    The health care bill hasn’t gotten an overwhelming majority of the vote in both houses. When the House voted on it’s version, it was on a razor thin margin of only 3 votes. If I remember correctly the vote was 220-yes and 215-no. This means that if only 3 yes votes had changed to no, the bill would not have passed. Is 3 votes and overwhelming majority?

    Your argument about abortions going down is flawed. You are basing your premise on the idea that most abortions are preformed in order to save money because it is cheaper to abort a baby than to give birth a raise a child into an adult. The vast majority of abortions are not done to save money, therefore the cost has nothing to do with most people’s decision. There are many people out there who want children but are unable to have them. These people would love to pay all the medical bills for someone who is pregnant if they can adopt the baby. There are also countless organizations funded by private donations that will cover all the costs of a pregnancy and delivery if the woman chooses life instead of having an abortion. Then, the baby can be adopted by a couple that desperately wants children… all at no financial cost (other than some missed work due to delivering a baby) to the pregnant mother.

    Project Savior,

    I have to agree with Liberty. Where did you get the idea that this monstrosity of a bill passed Congress with overwhelming majorities? That simply is not the case.

    As for the abortion issue, it is not about the cost, it is about the convenience. A very large percentage of the abortions performed in this country are done because the woman couldn’t be bothered to go through a pregnancy and give birth to the child. They want to do what they want to do and not reap the consequences. Is that any reason to murder a baby before it even has a chance to be born? I think not.

  11. Since when has anyone in Washington cared about our Constitution. We might as well sell the Constitution at a garage sale. No one’s using it anymore.

  12. Harrison says:

    I don’t know if it violates the Constitution or not but some of the statements coming from the Dems on healthcare are very alarming. This is most definetly an un-Democratic solution and their party will pay for this big time.
