Mark Levin And Judge Napolitano On The Slaughter Solution

Landmark Legal Foundation to File Suit to Stop President’s Health Plan if ‘Slaughter Rule’ is Used

(LEESBURG, VA, MARCH 17, 2010)…Mark R. Levin, president of Landmark Legal Foundation, today issued a warning to the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives about the possible use of 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. If this tactic is employed, Landmark will immediately sue the President, Attorney General Eric Holder and other relevant cabinet members to prevent them from instituting this unconstitutional contrivance.

“Landmark has already prepared a lawsuit that will be filed in federal court the moment the House acts. Such a brazen violation of the core functions of Congress simply cannot be ignored. Article I, Section 7 of the Constitution is clear respecting the manner in which a bill becomes law. Members are required to vote on this bill, not claim they did when they didn’t. The Speaker of the House and her lieutenants are temporary custodians of congressional authority. They are not empowered to do permanent violence to our Constitution.”

  • no-nonsense- nancy -

    We are headed back to DC this Saturday to try to talk to more of our reps. I’m glad I live fairly close. I hope we can make a difference. I hope we don’t end up having to fight this thing after it is passed.

    • Nancy I want to thank you for all your dedication in this effort. I am sure talking face to face has a much greater impact, than e-mails and phone calls, although they also send the message.

      The fact that you live close does make it easier but the fact that you go truly speaks to your character. Thank You and God bless.

  • Napolitano is not exactly correct, this is HIS opinion.

    Mark Levin, when asked how this suit could turn out said (I’m paraphrasing) you don’t know how this would turn out and you have to find a court/judge who would hear the petition and this is certain to happen.

    Napolitano is doing a disservice to say this is basically going nowhere.

    This is a test of the Constitution and it’s tested in the Judicial branch. Who is Napolitano, a former Superior Court Judge, suddenly an “expert” on the Constitution? Some knowledge vs. expertise are completely different things.

    This should have had Mark Levin on too so he could provide his expert counterpoint.
