…and the failure to use this tool shows the cowardice of everyone who says ‘they’re against it’ and politicians who promise its repeal. It’s the silver bullet, his Achilles Heel: Obama is not a natural born citizen and does not have the constitutional authority to sign any bill into law.
Here’s Congressman Ron Paul with Judge Andrew Napolitano discussing the fundamental unconstitutionality of Obamacare, with which I agree.
To his credit, Dr. Paul introduced legislation to prohibit the unconstitutional provisions of the bill from going into effect. It was predictably rejected so more games could be played. But nibbling halfheartedly around the edges, always with strings attached, the republican political class prefers to play games and will not use their authority or power to stop obamacare.
But its not just obamacare—the whole nation will suffer unspeakable harm as the illegal Obama is allowed to continue in office without so much as a peep from any of them on eligibility. Lawrence Sellin describes the stupidity of the republicans’ 2012 election strategy in ignoring Obama’s lack of constitutional eligibility:
Americans understand that the Democrats are hopelessly corrupt and many are accomplices in Obama’s crimes.They do not understand, however, why the Republicans remain silent as the Obama Administration continues to drive the country towards the precipice. There are two reasons: (1) some Republicans facilitated Obama’s illegal nomination for the Presidency and, subsequently, have been complicit in the cover-up and (2) ignoring Obama’s crimes is part of the Republican 2012 campaign strategy.
I would also add that they hide behind racism and political correctness to essentially cloak their objectives, which are to keep Obama in power. None of them really want to win.
The only way to defeat Obamacare is for the candidates and Congress to call out Obama. By what authority did he sign this legislation? By the “duties vested in the President”, which he took by force and deception?
Obama usurped the authority of the presidency–took power that he was not entitled to and does not belong to him. He has no right to use that authority for any reason including signing “obamacare into law”.
Obamacare is wholly invalid because Obama is invalid. It’s that simple, republican candidates.
