Posted on 01/19/2011 8:51:16 AM PST by Nachum
The second a massive, unpopular government entitlement program enters its implementation phase, it instantaneously transforms into a sacrosanct Constitutional right. That's the word from noted Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX): Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee, a Democrat from Texas, said on Tuesday afternoon that repealing the national health care law would violate the Constitution. Arguing that the Commerce Clause provides the constitutional basis for ObamaCare, Jackson Lee said repealing the law by passing Republicans' H.R. 2 violates both the Fifth Amendment's right to due process and the Fourteenth Amendment's equal protection clause.

It seems the talking points have been handed out as John Lewis here made a similar statement.
I would say she is an idiot, but that would not be enough.
"I can't never shuts up!"
Funny how libs can find things that are *not* in the constitution, but argue that things plainly in the constitution aren’t there or don’t meant what they say.
I believe her cognitive processing unit has experienced an I-D-10-T error.
Maybe on Mars.
The most abused clause in the Constitution...the commerce clause. If you accept the dhimmirat interpretation of it, then there is NO LIMIT to what government can to the people, whenever they choose, for as long as they choose, at any cost they deem appropriate.
Time to rein in this leviathan. Starting with this stupid congress critter should work...
Or as "the Secretary shall determine..."
That pretty much sums up the leftists’ worldview -
“at the discretion of...”
They believe THEY are uniquely qualified to make all decisions and move all the chesspieces on the board of the nation.
Wow! To think we’d been violating the Constitution for 120 plus years before Obama swooped in to save the day...
I would think Texans especially might feel they have a constitutional right to be represented by someone more intelligent than this buffoon. I could just see one of her constituents filing a petition in the courts that having her as a “representative” effectively meant being subjected to taxation without representation.
It’s right there in the part of the Constitution written in Swahili and invisible ink - the section only blacks and other liberals have the ability to see.
That is where it says blacks get to use their skin color to get a free ride for life and that the government has the duty to extort money from working whites and give it to blacks.
Shelia thinks she is Barbara Jordan. I had a conversation with Barbara Jordan on a flight from Austin to Houston once. Jackson-Lee is no Barbara Jordan.
Where did she get her law degree? Out of a Crackerjack box?
Perfectly representing the constituents that vote for her. In fact, she's probably a bit smarter.
Ah, but I assert that she represents her constituents
She’s probably their “best and brightest”.
Funny thing - when a libinlaw insisted that our elected representatives DO indeed know better than us, I asked her if she knew who SJL or Maxine Waters or Cynthia McKinney were. “No”
Shiela Jackson Lee, another poster child of our failed public school system.
As in equal opportunity has morphed into equal results.
No, he liked the white prostitutes according to Ralph Abernathy and others.
