The Importance of Reading the Bill

©2011 drkate


Obamacare is a dead duck walking.


Pelosi had to pass the bill in order to know what was in it; Conyers said ‘what’s the point, the lawyers have to interpret it’, and the drafters were too arrogant and power hungry to notice the severance clause was not included.   🙄

A sample wording of a severability clause:

“If any provision or provisions of this agreement shall be held to be invalid, illegal, unenforceable or in conflict with the law of any jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.”

The Florida Federal Judge who ruled Obamacare’s individual mandate unconstitutional effectively killed the entire monstrosity. It matters not that the Senate did not repeal it like the House did, it is dead by federal court order.

No injunction against the decision has been filed while the administration appeals to the Supreme Court, so technically nothing can be done to implement any of its provisions no matter how unrelated to the individual mandate.

But the Obama has announced his intentions to proceed despite the plain meaning of the Court’s ruling on the matter.

Anyone remember Honduras?

    Remix: Rush: Obama can go run for President in Egypt; don’t tell me he can’t because he wasn’t born there – 2/2/2011

    This is why it is important to read what is in the bill before it is voted on

    LOL, for once I agree with something Rush says. If BO were to become pres of Egypt the first thing he would do is to invade Isreal.

    Health care is D-E-A-D.

    APRIL. Bring it on!! Let’s go to DC evetyone!!

      If it “only” took 250K to install muslim brohood in egypt, we got over a million for a low-key non-urgent tea party rally! We didn’t even litter, but just imagine the forces at hand.

      Not only invade Israel and destroy them but bring Sharia law world wide–his culture, his religion, his life and his lie!

    The Senate voted yesterday to repeal one part of the Obamacare bill–81- 17.

    Judge Vinson ruled that a part of the bill was unconstitutional. He also said because that was no severalty clause in the bill, if one part of the bill is unconstitutional the entire bill is unconstitutional.

    Since there is no severalty clause in the bill, and though Senate voted to repeal one part of the bill, wouldn’t it make the entire bill repealed?

    White House Threatening Reporters Not To Air Birther Stories

    Present at this meeting, she verified that the network official issued “warnings” to the personalities “to avoid any on-air discussion of the birth place, eligibility, and news accounts of litigation compelling [Barack Hussein] Obama to produce a legitimate copy of his birth certificate.” She stated that the network executive had her arrange the conference immediately following a meeting “between [the network executive] and an attorney closely associated with candidate Obama who was acting on his behalf.”

    The report goes further to indicate that not only were news reporters and talk show hosts pressured to withhold information under the threat of losing their jobs but that inherent in the threats was a subtle but distinct hint that any such dissemination of information could result in bodily harm or worse.

    Fast-forward to January of 2011. A close friend of Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, a veteran celebrity reporter by the name of Mike Evans, stated in a radio interview on January 19 that the Governor had initiated an extensive search of records that would prove Obama’s eligibility, and that no such records could be found. But once the story of the allegations hit the news wires yesterday, Evans retracted everything he said by the end of the day on January 26.

    Was Mike Evans threatened by someone either close to or within the Obama team?

    There are no answers to that question at this time, but given the history of this issue, such a thing would fit a pattern established by those who were schooled in what is known as “the Chicago way.”

    Dr. Kate,

    Then if the entire bill is dead, then why would the Regime promise to take this to SCOTUS? It seems there is still wiggle room — or at least suggesting it.

    My question is this–while the Judge Vinson ruled the entire bill is unconstitutional, it isn’t final until the SCOTUS rules so. At least that is what the regime is suggesting.

    The Senate repeal is another branch of government. Would that repeal trump the SCOTUS if it should rule that the bill is constitutional? If so, does the repeal of one part of the bill by theSenate thus repeal all of the bill because it lacks the “severalty clause”?

    • 16 drkate February 3, 2011 at 2:58 pm

      The regime will take it to SCOTUS but did not ask for a ‘stay’ in the lower court decision while appealing to SCOTUS. If they had asked for a stay in that decision, it would have meant that the Florida court’s ruling–that obamacare is dead by virtue of no severability clause– it would mean that the lower court’s decision is ineffective pending the appeal.

      Right now it is a court order, and they can’t pursue it.

      Congress, you’re right, they can make a law that would over rule the Supreme Court, or at least get around the barriers. Right now since the HOuse has repealed it, it goes no where. Try as they might, the funding for any aspect of implementing the bill will stop with the house. I think there needs to be some guidance for everyone who is having any additional money taken out of their check regarding the bill

    Read the bill?? Remember, you can’t know what is in it until it is pased. That comment was made by a very intelligent and responsible elected official…. speaker of the house, pelosi (sarc off).

    Here is an excellent explanation of Judge Vinson’s rule.

    Politicans VASECTOMY

    After their 11th child, a politician decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed.

    So the husband went to his veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn’t want to have any more children.

    The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem but that it was expensive. “A less costly alternative,” said the doctor, “is to go home, get a cherry bomb, light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to your ear and count to 10.”

    The politician said to the doctor, “I may not be the smartest tool in the shed, but I don’t see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me.”

    “Trust me,” said the doctor.

    So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count!






    ( you’ll love this…)

    At which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs and continued counting on his other hand.

    This procedure also works in all blue states.

    Mark Levin (who is a constitutional lawye) has opined that if the Obama administration spends even one penny to implement Obamacare after it’s been declared unconstitutional by a federal judge, that makes them not only in contempt of court, but it would be a violation of 18 USC Sec. 641 (misappropriation of federal funds — a felony).

    Unfortunately, I don’t anticipate seeing President Obama or HHS Secretary Sebelius in orange jumpsuits any time soon.
