When we started this blog, a lot of people thought the idea that Democrats hate America was ludicrous. But we knew that Democrats have contempt for America, its institutions, its Founders, and our Constitution.
Is there any doubt now that Democrats hate America? We are now at a point in time in which Democrats in the House of Representatives do not want to even vote on their own disastrous health care bill.
Instead, they just want to have their legislation deemed passed if the Senate "fixes" the unpopular parts of the bill; this is unconstitutional as it is an attempt to evade the constitutional requirement that our elected officials have an up or down vote on identical legislation in each chamber, as the Constitution requires. Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution, however, states that for any bill to beome law "the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by the yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively."
Instead, the Democrats hope to pass the health care destruction bill through the "Slaughterhouse" rule, whereby the House votes to "deem" that it approves of the Senate health care bill only on the contingency that the "fixes" to the bill are made by the Senate. It is a complicated, convoluted, and unconstitutional method of trying to pass a bill that is already unconstitutional for many other reasons.
Why do the Democrats hate the US Constitution? The main reason is because the Constitution is a constraint on government power, and hence, a restraint on their insatiable appetite to control the lives of individual Americans. Thankfully, the US Constitution does provide us with one solution: vote against every Democrat on the ballot this November.
