Buffalo and Rochester Are Demanding Martial Law? I'm Not Buying It

Trying to figure out what's going on in the House of Representatives these days is like being sucked into a black hole and spit out on a planet designed by Franz Kafka and Groucho Marx.

It's hard to tell how painful it is because it's so absurd.

The Democrats might have enough votes to pass ObamaCare.  Or . . . they might not.

On the other hand, they might do an end run around the Constitution and just order America to purchase gov't health care or go to jail. No vote needed.

The following cannot be republished enough. From the Washington Examiner: (via Pundit and Pundette)
Would House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow House Democratic leaders try to cram the Senate version of Obamacare through the House without actually having a recorded vote on the bill?
Not only is the answer yes, they would, they have figured out a way to do it, according to National Journal's Congress Daily:
House Rules Chairwoman Louise Slaughter is prepping to help usher the healthcare overhaul through the House and potentially avoid a direct vote on the Senate overhaul bill, the chairwoman said Tuesday.
There's a big problem with this proposal. It's not Constitutional. The Constitution of the United States specifically mandates that Congress actually has to vote on bills.

Going on record with votes for this bill (as the Constitution requires) would be a big problem for Democrats because the majority of voters in this country despise this bill.

Mark Levin on the matter:
Here we have the President of the United States and Congressional leaders actually talking about the possibility of a brazen and open violation of one of the most fundamental aspects of our Constitution and Republic! How we actually make laws!
This is a crucial lesson for those of you who... aren't sure what your beliefs are, or if you have any beliefs. Or aren't sure if you even care. We have an effort underway by the one of the most powerful chairmen in Congress, the woman who heads the Rules Committee, ...openly discussing gutting Congress. Gutting Congress.

And if this is done, this is about as close to martial law as you'll ever get... So Louise Slaughter, a Representative from New York, is discussing, in essence, martial law. Now I can tell you, if they pursue this process, and try to impose this kind of a law, without actually passing a statute, that I will be in a race -- with scores of others -- to the courthouse to stop this.
Louise Slaughter, who wants to upgrade that old-fashioned idea of passing legislation by voting on it, is--I am heartbroken to admit--a New York Congresswoman representing Buffalo and Rochester (28th Congressional District), where she is a media darling and local bloggers go crazy over her cute Kentucky accent. She's also an ACORN darling, having run on ACORN's Working Families Party ticket.

The Buffalo News admires her "persistence" in getting the state some stimulus money to fund a little section of high-speed rail. She may have persistence, but she is not exactly a world-class pork trader, at least when it comes to the public good. Even by selling out the Constitution of the United States, a high-stakes trade, Slaughter's high-speed rail proposal came in 10th out of 11 proposals. The Buffalo News went out of its way to praise her for raking in $151 million; for the same purpose, California got $2.3 billion and Florida got $1.25 billion.
And--I kid you not--The Buffalo News loved Slaughter's "quote of the day"  at Obama's Health Reform Summit, her statement in defense of the Buffalo woman who wore her deceased sister's false teeth. In its coverage, the News noted only positive reactions to her comments, such as: "Thank God for Louise Slaughter."

Thank God? Louise Slaughter's proposal is also about the slaughter of the innocents: everybody in the country will be required to pay for abortions, like it or not.

Interestingly, neither the Buffalo press nor the Rochester press has found the ink to print a single word about what is now being called "the Slaughter solution" or the "Slaughter slight-of-hand," the one undeniably historic episode that already assures that Louise Slaughter's name will be recorded, infamously, in the history books.

This is a map of Slaughter's congressional district, which includes parts of Erie, Monroe, Niagara, and Orleans Counties. From Slaughter's Web site (which, by the way, completely ignores the Slaughter "Solution"):
Parts of Buffalo and Rochester, the second and third largest cities in New York, are joined by all or part of Appleton, Barker, Brighton, Burt, East Rochester, Fairport, Grand Island, Greece, Hamlin, Hilton, Holley, Irondequoit, Kendall, Kent, Lewiston, Lyndonville, Model City, Morton, Newfane, Niagara Falls, Olcott, Penfield, Perinton, Ransomville, Sanborn, Stella Niagara, City of Tonawanda, Town of Tonawanda, Waterport, Wilson, and Youngstown to make up the 28th Congressional District.
If you are a patriot living in Slaughter's district, you owe it to yourself, your children, and the rest of the country to raise a big fuss about Slaughter's Slight of Hand. Do it now. The clock is ticking.

Numbers to call listed in these posts:
I'd like to offer special thanks to Pundit and Pundette for keeping readers informed about Slaughter's travesty and providing excellent links on the subject. Make sure to visit there to learn more.
