O'CareTax Is Invalid, All Tax Bills Must Originate In the House

Kevin Kervick makes a good point. All tax bills must originate in the house, not the senate. The Obamacare Tax Act originated in the Senate. Since the Supreme Court decided the only way it is legal is as a tax, that makes the law invalid.
Consequently, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Law is unconstitutional on a different criteria than the ones considered by the Supreme Court in this latest landmark decision. By calling the individual mandate unconstitutional but allowing the law as a federal program to be funded by new taxes, Justice Roberts essentially nullified the law.

One more idea heard from ... we'll see. But, there's also NOvember!

Pelosi will say that she "deemed" it originated in the House of Representatives - sort of like the national budget (or lack thereof) has been for the past four years.

They have simply ignored the law, set themselves above it and absent a change in November, the only thing left for the people is to actively resist. We're not to that point, but the rule of law has been completely ignored by the ObamaNation when it's convenient for them to do so.

This was one of my thoughts, too. But then I read that it *DID* start in the House. The House had already passed a bill having something to do with Veterans - I think it was something about interest rates for VA loans - that the Senate just took and gutted. They dumped all the barrycare junk into this already-passed bill and sent it back to the House for them to vote on their "edits".

The process is called a "shell" bill, and has been done before. It violates the spirit of the Constitution but not the letter.

Hmmm,. that's interesting. I hope when Romney wins in Nov. he'll check into that, and just repeal the whole dumb thing.

I just heard that elsewhere too. Did you read where Bobby Jindhal isn't going to implement Ocare in Louisiana ?

I've said it before, it may turn to the states to protect America.
