DEFUND OBAMACARE, or Kiss the Constitution Goodbye — A Letter to My Senators

July 25, 2013

Senator ___________,

I have no idea if you are thinking in these terms, but it is apparent to me that the Obama Administration intends to render the Legislative Branch irrelevant, thus destroying the Constitutional principle of Separation of Powers.

Building on the Administration’s refusal to enforce DOMA, and continuing with the refusal of the Justice Department to indict the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation, the President has now arrogated the power to decide which portions of the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) will be enforced, and on which citizens and organizations.

The next opportunity — and quite possibly the last one — for the Legislative Branch to fight back against irrelevancy in the processes of government, will come in the vote on the coming Continuing Resolution (CR) on the budget, at the end of the current fiscal year, on September 30.

Any member of the House or Senate who votes for a Continuing Resolution that includes funds for Obamacare, will, in effect, be voting to cede the responsibility to write law to the Executive Branch. Any member who does so will thus be violating the portion of his or her oath of office that obligates members to support and defend the Constitution.

For your convenience, the Oath of Office is reproduced below, as listed on the U. S. Senate Website:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

In addition to this symbolic act, the members who vote for a CR that funds Obamacare will be contributing materially to the destruction of the United States as we know it, and opening the door to a government that is no longer a representative republic, but is an autocracy, run by judges and bureaucrats.

The position of “legislator” will be reduced to that of an irrelevant, impotent actor on the order of a member of the former Soviet Duma.

No Member of Congress, of either party, who votes for this or any measure that results on the funding of Obamacare deserves to serve in Congress.

I respectfully request that you commit explicitly and publicly against any vote or procedural measure in the US Senate which would result, directly or indirectly, in any taxpayer funds going to Obamacare.

Respectfully,

[etc.]
