Slaughter Rule-Legal challenges begin

Today, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, etc... have been informed that if the House of Representatives use the Slaughter rule to enact Healthcare reform, Landmark Legal will file a law suit against the Administration for Violation of Article 1, Section 7, of the US Constitution.

From Landmark Legal:
Landmark Legal Foundation to File Suit to Stop President’s Health Plan if ‘Slaughter Rule’ is Used
(LEESBURG, VA, MARCH 17, 2010)…Mark R. Levin, president of Landmark Legal Foundation, today issued a warning to the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives about the possible use of the so-called “deem and pass,” “self-executing,” or “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.”

Oh and one more thing. The President today on Fox News with Brent Baier.
BAIER: So you support the deem and pass rule?

OBAMA: I am not —

Oh, he supports anything that will allow this turd to pass the colon that is the Hypocrat House. Up to and including using The Constitution of These United States as a digging tool.

Then he needs to be reminded of this.
