The right has finally been able to attach the word “unconstitutional” to a highly inflammatory piece of Obama-fueled legislation.
On Thursday, a federal court has deemed that the Obamacare payouts to insurance providers defy the U.S. Constitution, specifically in regard to who the taxpayer-funded system will logistically move money from their coffers to the insurance companies.
“First, the Obama administration attempted to get the case dismissed, insisting that the House does not have standing to bring this matter into court at all.
“Judge Rosemary Collyer sided with the House, holding that only Congress can decide to spend taxpayer money and that these Obama administration payments injure the House by seizing one of Congress’s constitutional powers. Speaking of the two houses of Congress, she began, ‘Only these two bodies, acting together, can pass laws—including the laws necessary to spend public money. In this respect, Article I [of the Constitution] is very clear: “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law.’”
So, after all of the battles faced by the right about the terrible cost to the taxpayer that would come with Obamacare, it turns out that cashing the check might be the whole terrible system’s downfall.
