Obama ignores oath of office, signs unconstitutional SCHIP Bill

SEE: Obama signs SCHIP bill

 

Hey Obama, what provision in our federal Constitution grants power to Congress to lay and collect taxes in Idaho, to fund the health care needs of children living in New York?

 

Tell us Mr. Obama, did you miss what is written in Federalist No. 45?

 

The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected.

 

The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.

How about what is written in the Tenth Amendment? Did you miss that too, Mr. Obama?

 

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people.

 

And when you were allegedly teaching constitutional law, Mr. Obama, did you teach your students the SC did not know what it was talking about when rendering its opinion in MARBURY v. MADISON, 5 U.S. 137 (1803)?

 

The government of the United States is of the latter description. The powers of the legislature are defined and limited; and that those limits may not be mistaken or forgotten, the constitution is written. To what purpose are powers limited, and to what purpose is that limitation committed to writing; if these limits may, at any time, be passed by those intended to be restrained? The distinction between a government with limited and unlimited powers is abolished, if those limits do not confine the persons on whom they are imposed, and if acts pro- [5 U.S. 137, 177] hibited and acts allowed are of equal obligation. It is a proposition too plain to be contested, that the constitution controls any legislative act repugnant to it; or, that the legislature may alter the constitution by an ordinary act.

 

Between these alternatives there is no middle ground. The constitution is either a superior, paramount law, unchangeable by ordinary means, or it is on a level with ordinary legislative acts, and like other acts, is alterable when the legislature shall please to alter it.

 

If the former part of the alternative be true, then a legislative act contrary to the constitution is not law: if the latter part be true, then written constitutions are absurd attempts, on the part of the people, to limit a power in its own nature illimitable.

 

Certainly all those who have framed written constitutions contemplate them as forming the fundamental and paramount law of the nation, and consequently the theory of every such government must be, that an act of the legislature repugnant to the constitution is void.

 

 

Come now Mr. Obama, why do you want to make millions of people more dependent upon government for their subsistence with SCHIP, and oppose the proposed WAGE TAX HOLIDAY for working people, which would free them from a slavish tax upon the property they have in their labor?

If we can make 51 percent of America’s population dependent upon a federal government check, we can then bribe them for their vote, keep ourselves in power and keep the remaining portion of America’s working population [Joe the American plumber] enslaved to pay the bills ____ Obama’s Marxist game plan, a plan to establish a federal plantation and redistribute the wages earned by labor.

And... he's going to pay for it how? .... by taxing cigarettes? This is ridiculous and probably discriminatory. What did he say about civil rights? I missed that part I guess.

No chance while he's still a smoker. Maybe because he still smokes it will become vogue again. Anyone investing in Philip Morris? cwm27.gif

All those who think that the cigarette tax will be cover the massive expense of this bill are going to be in for a big surprise when their taxes go up. The idea that the cigarette tax would cover it was a ruse used by the dems to get it passed.

That's the last thing the government wants smile.gif Imagine the revenue lose.

I'd love to see everyone quite for a month and hear the howls and moans from those that seek to protect us from cigarettes.

“…..with all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow-citizens—a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities“. ---- Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address

goos to see people rediscovering the constitution after 8 years of it being ignored and them being silent!

 

 

this tax increase sucks. they'll need 2.2 million new smokers a year to fund it. the tobacco tax was just the way in the door.

 

large cigars: 52.75% with a cap of 40.26 cents

cigarettes: $1.0066 per pack

pipe tobacco: $2.8311 per pound

RYO tobacco: $24.78 per pound

Little cigars: $50.33 per 1,000 ($1.0066 per pack)

 

 

tobacco company lobbyists got some Repubs in congress to place the biggest hit on the roll your own tobacco industry, it was eating into their profits.

 

this adds up to $10.07 per box of cigars for me effective 4/1.

I almost started a new thread in the tavern "Thank a smoker," but figured it might blow up. cwm27.gif

 

But I will extend a personal note of thanks to Jonsey for his contributions to the tax revenue stream by way of his habit. clapping.gif
