Origination Clause and ObamaCare
I have said this for months, but of course, I am no Constitutional scholar, or even a lawyer. ObamaCare, originating in the Senate as it did, is not Constitutional as a tax because of the Origination Clause. Daniel Smyth has a more complete analysis at the American Thinker today entitled Origination Clause: Die Harder ObamaCare. I had been waiting for someone to pick up on this fact, and Smyth not only provides a good analysis, but shows you some of the sausage making that went on behind the scene. It isn't pretty, but it puts on display the utter contempt these arrogant weasels feel for We the People.
