Legal Foundation Prepares Lawsuit Over Slaughter House Rule

The Landmark Legal Foundation and its president, Mark R. Levin, conservative radio host and author, have published a draft complaint naming as defendants Barack Obama, Timothy Geithner, Eric Holder, and Kathleen Sebelius. According to Levin, the lawsuit "will be filed in federal court the moment the House" uses "the so-called 'deem and pass,' 'self-executing,' or 'Slaughter Rule' to enact H.R. 3590, the legislative version of President Obama’s healthcare proposal that has been previously approved by the Senate."

From the draft Claim for Relief:
20.  Two branches of the United States Government have and presently are intending to transgress the requirements of the U.S. Constitution, rendering the liberty of United States citizens at stake. Clinton, 524 U.S. at 450 (Kennedy, J., concurring).

  1. I am going to do my darndest to stop this Bill from passing. But, thank goodness that Levin is prepared if they pass this bill using shady means. It disgusts me how these Dems and our President are intentionally going against the American people.

  2. Teresa, Obama, a Harvard-educationed Constitutional lawyer, says that he "doesn't care about the procedure" used in Congress. The whole lot of them seem to have forgotten their oaths to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    The American people may not care about every jot or tittle used by lawyers in every bill (we have lives to lead), but the history of our country is the history of the American people's development and defense of our sacred liberties.
