After Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare, Texas Congressman Introduces Bill Aimed Directly at Justices

Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) responded to a Supreme Court decision upholding a key Obamacare provision Thursday by introducing a bill in the House that would require each of the justices to enroll in the controversial health care program.

“As the Supreme Court continues to ignore the letter of the law, it’s important that these six individuals understand the full impact of their decisions on the American people,” Babin said in a statement.

“That’s why I introduced the SCOTUScare Act to require the Supreme Court and all of its employees to sign up for Obamacare,” the Texas congressman added. “By eliminating their exemption from Obamacare, they will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with!”

“[T]hey will see firsthand what the American people are forced to live with!”

President Barack Obama’s controversial health law survived it’s second Supreme Court challenge Thursday when the court upheld its nationwide tax subsides in a 6-3 decision.

Critics immediately skewered the court for the decision, many citing Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissenting opinion to contend the court had become politicized.

The first step toward change [and restitution] is the soap box; the second step is the ballot box; the third is the jury box, which we have eliminated due to "judges' instructions", which are direction by judges who have been thoroughly indoctrinated with "Hate America, Love Communism" nonsense in their many years of schooling.  The fourth is the cartridge box, which is, obviously, becoming the sole remaining option.

I would readily give my life if that sacrifice meant freedom for my many children and grandchildren.

We do, indeed, live in "interesting times"!

Ed it is becoming more and more obvious that the ammo box is the only solution left. It matters not what the Constitution says if it can not or will not be enforced. We have seen these slime bag political prostitutes sell our country out for provably as little as a million dollars and probably less that we do not know about. Irregardless of what the idiots behind this corrupt madness may think, they will never be prepared for and will not survive the wrath of the 90 million gun owners and another 150 million Americans in our country. They do not have any where near the man power or the resources to defeat the American people once Americans decide to put a stop to this insanity..

The key is ... once Americans decide to put a stop to this insanity.  So far, the people have shown little interest in doing so and it doesn't look promising that they will change anytime soon.

Colonel. Good to see you again. I stopped commenting on the Art V. Yes, Americans will have to come to terms with the reality of the threat of loss of American freedoms and the future complete enslavement economically that is facing our future generations and all of mankind in general. I never thought I would be saying that if it were not for the Russians , Chinese and a few others, the NWO would have already forced our hand. But that is yet to come, or the powers that be must capitulate and save their lousy hides.

Well, I'm ready; I did my duty as a grunt many years ago, and I spent a long career "in management" at several levels up to VP, so I believe that qualifies me for, at least, a position of "O-6" (or better?) in the upcoming organization.  I'm too old to run around with an "idiot stick" anymore, but I will if that's what is required.

Leaders lead...they motivate and inspire others to action.  We simply don't have leaders in this movement capable of putting boots by the millions in the street.  Once we have leadership and the FUNDING... this movement will take on wings.. until then it will cook in its own juices.. a seething pot of dissent without an effective outlet.

how about a law that says that all government employees and elected officials have to enroll in obamacare

Congress is on Obamacare, but have given themselves a subsidy of $5K for singles and

$11K for family's by going around the law and setting up each of their offices as a small

business.   But the leadership, House, Senate, Administration and Judicial Court are above

the law and do not have to.     

I guess I have become a really pessimistic person since the Republicans became traitors after the last election. Obama gets away with everything. The politicians become rich and sit back doing nothing helpful for the American people. I do not expect anything good to come out of Washington anymore. I am more than discouraged wondering why I should even bother anymore.

Realist not pessimist... one cannot deny the facts to do so is too become delusional.

I think that with the courts anti American decisions on gay marriage and obamacare...they just assured that the democrats will lose the next election. over 60 percent of the American people are against obamacare...and it is getting worse.....and most people are against gay marriages even though they do not say anything...but when both these progressive moves are thrown into our face...then the voting booth looks better and better everyday. in 2010 and then again in 2014...we pushed the democrats aside...and by god we will do the same in 2016....vote for anybody but a democrat.

SCOTUASYLUM annexes SCOTUScare. Making sure nine beds are available...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
