"It's The Law"

Post  Gomezz Adddams on Fri Oct 04, 2013 11:56 am

A great article by Thomas Sowell over at NRO explaining to the low information Libs, who are parroting the ubiquitous mantra that the House has to fund Obamacare because "it's the law of land", just how Constitutional government and the Separation of Powers work.

Whether Obamacare is good, bad, or indifferent is a matter of opinion. But it is a matter of fact that members of the House of Representatives have a right to make spending decisions based on their opinion.

Obamacare is indeed “the law of the land,” as its supporters keep saying, and the Supreme Court has upheld its constitutionality.

But the whole point of having a division of powers within the federal government is that each branch can decide independently what it wants to do or not do, regardless of what the other branches do, when exercising the powers specifically granted to that branch by the Constitution.

I rooted around and found it. I don't have time to read on the computer, so I printed it up to read later.

I bet Mr. Sowell is not on the Democrats list of top 100 liked people.

I like this from his bio on Wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Sowell

Sowell compared President Barack Obama's actions to Adolf Hitler's in a June 2010 editorial for Investor's Business Daily titled "Is U.S. Now On Slippery Slope To Tyranny?"[35] Sowell described the role of uninformed citizens ("useful idiots") in the rise of Hitler and Vladimir Lenin, arguing that the U.S. was on a "slippery slope to tyranny" because citizens were not thinking about the issues. The example he gave was the creation of a relief fund for the BP oil spill, in which he asked rhetorically what gave the President an unconstitutional "authority to extract vast sums of money from a private enterprise and distribute it as he sees fit to whomever he deems worthy of compensation."
LOL, "Useful idiots"...AKA LIVE (Low Information Voting Entity)
