Re: The Slaughter Rule : Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution

“Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it becomes a Law, be presented to the President of the United States.”

If the House does not have a direct vote on the legislation, this seems to be a violation of the explicit language of the Constitution. Pelosi favors the Slaughter Rule that would allow a complicated procedure to be used so that the House does not have to schedule a direct vote on the Senate passed version of ObamaCare at any stage in the process.

SideBear: This provision in the Construction is there for the express purpose that every member of the Senate and the House vote on every piece of legislation must be recorded for all the people to see. James Madison in his wisdom saw the corruption that is about to happen.

Brian Darling of the Heritage Foundation explains…

The fact of the matter is that there is no precedent for the House to pass a bill without a direct vote by using a budget reconciliation measure as a trigger and a means to pass ObamaCare. Nancy Pelosi’s potentially unconstitutional strategy to pass unconstitutional ObamaCare is without precedent nor justification.

I eagerly wait the left pointing to a precedent where a bill is deemed to have passed without a direct vote that affects 1/6th of the U.S. economy. I also await a precedent where the House used a vote on a budget reconciliation measure to deem as passed another piece of legislation.
