Senator Ted Cruz explains dangers of “governing by crisis”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) interview with Greta Van Susteren on government by crisis. Government by crisis is not government as outlined in the Constitution. Congress is not functioning as required by Article I, Sections 7, and 8.
The Supreme Court called Obamacare a tax. A ‘tax’ according to our Constitution must come from the House. The Origination Clause in our Constitution 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. /20ID
Article 1, Section 7. Clause I
There is a lawsuit being brought by Pacific Legal Foundation. They state how Obamacare came into being:
“The Obama Administration’s health care law did not originate in the House; it originated in the Senate, when Senator Harry Reid “amended” a bill the House had passed by striking out all of its text and replacing it with the Senate-written bill that eventually became Obamacare.”
Randy Barnett – Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory, Georgetown University Law Center states:
“If any act violates the Origination Clause, it would seem to be the Affordable Care Act.” The only way the violation could be more obvious is if the Senate hadn’t even bothered to use a shell bill, but had simply written a bill of its own without a shell.”
