Section 376 of Obama’s tax and spend “jobs” bill ends state sovereignty, turns our Republic into a dictatorship and destroys the foundation upon which our country was built. The fundamental transformation of America is almost complete.

Read the bill. (Emphasis added)

“SEC. 376. FEDERAL AND STATE IMMUNITY.

(a) Abrogation of State Immunity- A State shall not be immune under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution from a suit brought in a Federal court of competent jurisdiction for a violation of this Act.

(b) Waiver of State Immunity-

(1) IN GENERAL-

(A) WAIVER- A State’s receipt or use of Federal financial assistance for any program or activity of a State shall constitute a waiver of sovereign immunity, under the 11th Amendment to the Constitution or otherwise, to a suit brought by an employee or applicant for employment of that program or activity under this Act for a remedy authorized under Section 375(c) of this Act.

(B) DEFINITION- In this paragraph, the term `program or activity’ has the meaning given the term in section 606 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000d-4a).”

Here is the link to 42 USC 2000d-4a which defines “program or activity”:

“For the purposes of this subchapter, the term “program or activity” and the term “program” mean all of the operations of

(1)
(A) a department, agency, special purpose district, or other instrumentality of a State or of a local government; or

(B) the entity of such State or local government that distributes such assistance and each such department or agency (and each other State or local government entity) to which the assistance is extended, in the case of assistance to a State or local government;”

Also…

any part of which is extended Federal financial assistance.”

The above is stated as an extension of the actual citation of the general section itself.

More from Section 376 (emphasis added):

“(2) EFFECTIVE DATE- With respect to a particular program or activity, paragraph (1) applies to conduct occurring on or after the day, after the date of enactment of this Act, on which a State first receives or uses Federal financial assistance for that program or activity.”

Wake up Governors!! Wake up America!! Tell Congress about Section 376 and why they must not pass this bill.

Obama’s tax and spend “jobs” bill is a stealth move to end state sovereignty and transform what made our nation the greatest country the world has ever known. If Obama’s bill passes, kiss freedom goodbye and say hello to tyranny.

I know this is off of a blog, but the information here seems to me worth discussing. Certainly if this is correct it is just more ammunition for killing Obama's newest tax hikes.

As I said in the other post. Everything Obama does has a trap hidden in it. His Obamacare is filled with them and now he seeks to steal the Sovereignty of States in a sneaky assed jobs bill.

Governors and Congress should start looking for reasons for this dick pulling this crap in his bills.

He is heating the frog a little at a time, and getting away with it.

tell him to take his bill and shove it.

IMHO...this bill was written long ago when Congress was completely Democrat controlled...and was supposed to have been passed to deprive Flyover Country of whatever residual power they possess.

“Obama’s Jobs Bill Ends State Sovereignty”

So when king obuma decides to end my state’s sovereignty, does he send his fat welfare momma division or the 50 IQ rappers who can’t hold a glock straight to get me?

I can appreciate fantasy as much as anyone, but let’s not give Buckwheat super-human powers.

Obuma is a fraud and a coward with no muscle backing him.

If Buckwheat wants to send out a fat SEIU thug to meet me on a hillside at sunrise and fight with broadswords, I’m free all week.

Yup, looks like a "hobs bill" to me!

This reminds me of the way they hid elements of Obamacare in the stimulus bill.

I don’t understand why people are getting so worked up over this moron and his antics. He is zero and he has zero legitimacy. No one is listening to him. Shun and spurn the narcissist and make him go mad!

Count up all the times any bill since January 2009 has granted powers to “the Secretary of...” whatever department.
It must count into the thousands. Obamacare alone had several hundred.

Each time any legislature extends powers to “the Secretary” those powers are really bestowed onto the President, because all cabinet ‘secretaries’ report to him.

Hitler managed the same thing: Soon after the Reichstag fire, the German legislature passed the The Enabling Act, which gave Hitler the right to rule by decree. This in effect, made Hitler dictator of Germany.

Hitler didn't accomplish what he did on his own, he had plenty of help.
History shows that things didn't turn out too well for his friends either.

Lehman Brothers was heavily invested in Wind and Solar and was one of the reasons why it went under.
