As the Dean of a law school and a long-term student of the Constitution of the United States, I am APPALLED by the processes being used to pass ObamaCare. Make no mistake: What Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the architects of ObamaCare are trying to get away with is blatantly unconstitutional!
A few days ago, Democrats began floating Rep. Louis Slaughter's idea to use a "self-extracting rule" which would allow the House to pass ObamaCare without actually casting a vote on the Senate version of the healthcare "reform" bill. Then yesterday, Speaker Pelosi all but made it the official Democrat strategy by saying this about the "Slaughter House Rule': "I like it... because people don't have to voteon the Senate bill."
Put simply, the House will create a rule to "deem" the Senate bill as passed, while merely voting on the amendments. Under this scheme, Members of the House will never actually vote on the Senate version, yet ObamaCare could pass nonetheless.
I have two words to say about the so-called Slaughter House Rule: "I OBJECT!"
Can the architects of ObamaCare be any more deceptive and abusive of the authority entrusted to them? Their arrogance is an insult to the American people and to our revered institutions.
We must continue resisting this seemingly endless deception.
The Obama/ Pelosi/ Reid political machine is determined to get ObamaCare passed this week - and they are proving they will stop at nothing to do it. In fact, everything the Obama/Pelosi/Reid axis of power is doing right now is carefully designed to avoid ANY public input and even to minimize scrutiny inside Congress itself.
For his part, the President has been holding one-on-one meetings with swing-vote Democrat House Members, particularly those who voted "no" the first time around. We can only imagine the arm-twisting, manipulation, and pressure the President is applying to these representatives behind closed doors. Those who have experienced such tactics assure us that only the strongest of characters can stay committed to their own ideals and principles under such treatment. We should all keep these men and women - perhaps especially those who are standing on pro-life convictions - in our prayers this week.
This situation calls for action!
We MUST counter the overt deception and pressure being employed and speak out for the clear majority of
Americans who strongly oppose ObamaCare. Even if you have faxed and called Congress already this
month, I need you to take additional action now. Your legislators need to continue hearing YOUR voice on
this crucial issue. Tell them, "NO TO OBAMACARE" and "NO TO THE SLAUGHTER HOUSE RULE"!
Utilizing the highly effective Liberty Counsel FAX BARRAGE, we are delivering a powerful message to your Representatives, and to wavering Members and pro-life Members of the Congress - the same key "swing votes" who are being pressed hard by the Left's political machine.
In the last several days alone, friends like you have enabled us to deliver over 200,000 highly targeted faxes into a Congress that desperately needs to hear the voices of freedom-loving Americans. Everything you need to send your message is just a click away. Time is critical! Go here to schedule your faxes now:
If you prefer, we always encourage you to send your own faxes. We have provided all the information you need to reach your Members of Congress:
ALSO...Please CALL your elected officials and tell them what you think about ObamaCare, the subversion of the will of the American people, the abuse of our democratic processes, and the pro-abortion measures contained in this bill. This will likely require patience, so please don't give up if you get a busy signal or are placed on hold for an available line.
ObamaCare's "Abortion Mandate" must be stopped!
The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) and other pro-life groups have condemned the Senate's version of health care reform because of its numerous pro-abortion loopholes. According to the NRLC, one key issue is a provision that allows $7 billion in funding for Community Health Centers - something President Obama expanded in his request for changes to the bill. These and other funds provided for in the bill would wind up paying for abortions. We, as pro-life Americans, MUST stand strong against the anti-life provisions in the Obama/Reid/Pelosi versions of healthcare reform. I am calling for thousands of pro-life citizens to make a bold statement and to REJECT this bill totally and completely!
Please go here now to send your faxes and make YOUR VOICE heard in this crucial debate:
... it is now what many are calling the "make-or-break week" for ObamaCare. I sincerely thank you for taking action with me while there is still time.
God bless you,

P.S. As I have repeatedly pointed out, the "personal mandate" in the Senate version of ObamaCare (and therefore the "President's Plan") is unconstitutional. Period. The "Slaughter House Rule" is unconstitutional, as well. But the Constitution alone will not stop these socialist ideologues - only an overwhelming response from outraged citizens can defeat their deceptive strategy. Take action with me in telling Congress "NO!" to the anti-life, anti-family, anti-freedom healthcare "reform" bill! Time is absolutely of the essence at this point. Please, go here:
