Missing in Action (Again): Sensenbrenner

Seems like "NSA Jim"--the man who authored the Spy-On-You Act (and who claims that it's being "mis-used"--was too busy filing his re-election papers to bother with other stuff.

This week several House members filed a brief for PLF’s “Origination Clause” challenge to Obamacare.

That challenge is based on the Constitution (the one Sensenbrenner carries in his pocket) which requires that all revenue and tax matters must originate in the House.

Since ObozoCare is deemed a "tax", these Members of Congress argue that since the legislation did NOT originate in the House (and it did not), it is un-Constitutional.

...In addition to Representative Franks, House members who have joined the brief as amici in support of PLF’s Obamacare challenge include: Michele Bachmann (MN); Joe Barton (TX); Kerry L. Bentivolio (MI); Marsha Blackburn (TN); Jim Bridenstine (OK); Mo Brooks (AL); K. Michael Conaway (TX); Steve Chabot (OH); Jeff Duncan (SC); John J. Duncan, Jr. (TN); John Fleming (LA); Bob Gibbs (OH); Louie Gohmert (TX); Andy Harris (MD); Tim Huelskamp (KS); Walter B. Jones, Jr. (NC); Steve King (IA); Doug Lamborn (CO); Doug LaMalfa (CA); Bob Latta (OH); Thomas Massie (KY); Mark Meadows (NC); Randy Neugebauer (TX); Steve Pearce (NM); Robert Pittenger (NC); Trey Radel (FL); David P. Roe (TN); Todd Rokita (IN); Matt Salmon (AZ); Mark Sanford (SC); David Schweikert (AZ); Marlin A. Stutzman (IN); Lee Terry (NE); Tim Walberg (MI); Randy K. Weber, Sr. (TX), Brad R. Wenstrup (OH); Lynn A. Westmoreland (GA); Rob Wittman (VA); and Ted S. Yoho (FL)....

Don't see Sensenbrenner's name there?  Good for you!  It is NOT there.

Nor is Ryan's, Ribble's, or the Log-Roller's.

The Origination Clause has been ineffectual from its inception. The PLF's real challenge will be finding a court willing to overturn a couple hundred years of federal practice ignoring the clause. And that won't be a Roberts court.

That is correct. However, the Affordable Care Act is H.R. 3590 which means technically it is a House bill regardless of how it got that way.

The list includes neophyte congressmen who are too new to know any better how things work, and a few like Bachmann, Blackburn, Gohmert, King, Huelskamp and Yoho who are too stupid to have figured it out yet.

Here is the TRUTH about the nigger muslim statist despot-wannabe...and Vox is right: the system is breaking down exponentially:

...the implementation of OTraitorCare is going to be a whole lot more draconian than Americans have been led to believe... who attempted to sign up...was threatened with drivers license being revoked, federal tax lien on home...

"..."If true, the implementation of ObamaCare is going to be a whole lot more draconian than Americans have been led to believe.

"I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a pre-existing condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually. I chose Tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance.

I received an eMail tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037.00 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.”"

The federal government has consistently denied that any fines pertaining to Obamacare non-compliance could be seized from bank accounts, despite reports last year that the IRS had hired 16,500 new agents to harass citizens who attempt to evade the new law."

The system is breaking down, and it appears to be breaking down increasingly fast...".

All you apatheticists out there better wake up to the TRUTH of what this is all about and what is REALLY going on here.

Autocratic oligarchial tyrannical authoritarianistic totalitarianistic despotic absolutism oppression enforced by tactical LEO facism...all financed by YOU!!!

These globalist imperialists are GUFFAWING at your easily-oppressed sheople apathy behind Brzezinski-led closed CFR one-world-order doors.
