Just a TEST RUN for when he DOES DECLARE IT!!
"Friday, October 03, 2008 House Bows to Blackmail, Passes Unconstitutional Bailout
The bailout bill is unconstitutional but passed the House under the Bush administration's threat of martial law!
The House rejected the original bill on Monday, sending stocks tumbling around the world.But lawmakers approved the rescue package, backed by U.S. President George W. Bush and Treasury chiefs, Friday after the U.S. Senate passed it by a large majority on Wednesday.Congress voted 263 to 171 in favor of the bailout bill, which will now go to President Bush to be signed.Wall St, after climbing nearly 300 points before the bill was passed, slipped after the successful vote as the market tried to take in the news.President Bush later said he would sign the bill into law Friday. --U.S. lawmakers pass $700 billion bailout bill
Article I, Section 7 states that all revenue bills shall originate in the House of Representatives but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on any other bills. The reason for this is that at the time the Constitution was written, it was felt that Senators would be more wealthy than Representatives and might be willing to spend more government money than the Representatives would. Also, the House with its greater numbers was seen as being the better gauge of the wishes of the people for spending measures.--US ConstitutionThis bailout bill originated in the Senate.
So it would seem that if the House BLOCKED the BAILOUT today, the U.S. was due for some MARTIAL LAW, huh?
You expect THIS CONGRESS to stand up to him when it is for real?
It's OVER, America!! And I DON'T THINK HE'S LEAVING!!
Check back with me AFTER October 7th!
