Federal revenue bills are to originate in the House, our constitution clearly states as much…what does originate mean? It doesn’t mean to originate elsewhere. How could the House have passed it when Nancy Pelosi herself made it very clear the House did not know about the Bill, when she poetically stated: [sic] In order to read the Bill, you must first pass it.
Could a compulsory healthcare bill originate in the House and not know the language of that bill? Absolutely not! The House did not propose that bill, Obama did…he campaigned on it in 2008, and spoke about it in 2007. The ACA Bill [Obamacare] passed the US Supreme Court via the Taxing and Spending Clause. However, that is held in check by the US Constitution’s Origination Clause, which, again, as does Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution – clearly state that ALL Federal Revenue Bills are to originate in the House of Representatives – the ACA Bill did NOToriginate in the House Branch, it was “created” by the Executive Branch – or introduced by the Executive Branch.
Now, the media is hoisting up Ezekiel Emanuel as the architect of this Bill? Whether he came up with the whole plan, or even a small part of it, further indicates this did not originate in the House Branch!, as outlined by the United States Constitution.
The US Supreme Court deemed the ACA bill a Federal Revenue Bill, authorizing the penalty imposed BY the ACA Bill – legal.
It is what it is, a Federal Revenue Bill, and penalties are imposed at the time you file your taxes, collected by the IRS. The “Shared Responsibility Tax”.
Why this Bill has even gone this far is perplexing. Why Congress approved it, without reading it is even more perplexing. Maybe Congress knew about it all along, and they’re part of this scheme…
