Ask yourself America, why do we even have a Ways and Means Committee anymore? Heck, why does the Constitution state which branch can originate revenue-raising legislation?
An additional tidbit, how many of you know that Obamacare violated the Origination Clause? Yep, when the SCOTUS ruled that Obamacare was constitutional because the individual mandate — albeit not in compliance with the commerce clause — was acceptable under the taxing authority of Congress, Chief Justice Roberts ruled that the individual mandate was a tax. The problem is revenue-generating legislation must “originate” from the House. Obamacare originated in the Senate, and that is unconstitutional because Obamacare raises revenue. But apparently who cares? It just keeps on happening and emboldening the most constitutionally-corrupt president in U.S. history.
Here are few other little known items that President Obama could do via executive orders — just because he thinks he can.
“The President wants more tax reporting too. Businesses that purchase more than $600 worth of goods or services from a contractor would have to get that contractor’s Taxpayer Identification Number and check it with the IRS. If it doesn’t check out, the business would have to withhold from 15% to 35% of the payment, sending it off to the IRS. It isn’t an exaggeration to say that it would double or triple the reporting obligations of small businesses. The President wants to deny tax deductions for donations linked to sports tickets. Many colleges and universities rely on event tickets to goose alumni contributions. Today, if you give to charity and your contribution makes you eligible to buy advance tickets, you can only deduct 80% of your contribution, not 100%. The White House says no part of your donation should be deductible, period.”
Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is an admitted socialist — just like New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio. This is how they think. And it seems Obama fully embraces their philosophy of “by any means necessary” to spread the wealth, share the prosperity, advance economic fairness and fair share. He displays a complete disdain for our rule of law and continues to push the envelope because no one will stand in his way. Heck, we can’t even get House and Senate Republicans to bring up a resolution for censure.
What do you call it when someone believes himself above the rule of law? A tyrannical dictator.
