The Slaughter House Rules

In watching House Democrats maintain their acme of arrogance, by defying the American people and shredding the U.S. Constitution, the irony of it all staggers:  

First, using the “Slaughter House Rules” to skirt a substantive vote and “deem as passed” the Senate’s government-run health care bill would violate constitutionally prescribed procedures for duly passing and enacting federal legislation. Obviously, this dysfunctional legislative branch’s Leftist majority cares little about this pesky “supreme law of the land.”

Second, though, the separate, equal judicial branch of the federal government will care, and herein Democrats may finally be able to take credit for “new jobs created,” because listen closely and you will hear the sound of every conservative organization hiring a retinue of lawyers to queue up to take any health care bill passed under the “Slaughter House Rules” straight to federal court.

Finally, one is tempted to think such an unconstitutionally enacted government-run health-care “law” will meet the same frosty reception from at least five Supreme Court Justices that they received from Congressional Leftists during the State of the Union.
