The court will rule that the Congress governs itself and if there is an objection on procedural grounds it must be raised within the Congress. If the rights of the House have been usurped then let the House object. Ordinary citizens have no standing to sue over such matters.
But this isn't a clear-cut simple little House rules procedural issue. This is about what the Constitution clearly says: tax bills must begin in the House.
Nope, you have no standing. You merely obey and fork the money over.
(Sorry about sounding blithe, but it sounds like the punch line to a Readers Digest joke.)
“Ordinary citizens have no standing to sue over such matters.”
The peasantry has no standing. Period.
Assuming for the sake of argument you're exactly correct. Makes one wonder just why in the hell Boehner and the Republican House aren't forcing this back into the courts on procedural grounds.
Oops, that's right, Boehner said day after the election that Obamacare is the "law of the land" didn't he?
In my view, that only goes to prove that Obamacare is less about Democrats vs. Republican's, and more about Government controlling every aspect of our lives. The R's and D's are nothing more than red herrings to take our eyes off the fact that this rotten to the core Government of ours is obsessed with having power over our daily lives. The "politics" is just a ruse ... "bread and circuses" for the masses.
