Constitutional Law

Interesting quote, from The Washington Times:

The Slaughter Solution is a poisoned chalice. By drinking from it, the Democrats would not only commit political suicide. They would guarantee that any bill signed by Mr. Obama is illegitimate, illegal and blatantly unconstitutional. It would be worse than a strategic blunder; it would be a crime – a moral crime against the American people and a direct abrogation of the Constitution and our very democracy.

from an article by Jeffrey T. Kuhner.

Mr. Kuhner is calling for the impeachment of Obama and Pelosi, to begin with, if they proceed with the Slaughter Solution on the health care bill. The Slaughter Solution is clearly unconstitutional.

I agree with Mr. Kuhner. We need to stop this madness before it destroys our country. This president and his cabal have played fast and loose with the Constitution, and we need to stop it now. With this act, they have each broken their vows to uphold the Constitution of the United States.

If we sit back and let this happen without challenging and negating it, then on that day the Constitution will be void and representative government will be dead in the United States.

ADDENDUM 03/20/2010: It looks like the Democrats realized they could not make the deeming rule (Slaughter solution) stand, so they are going back to simple reconciliation – which is, itself, just a dodge to get it passed with fewer votes.
