Posted on 05/09/2014 5:22:45 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
A federal appeals court heard arguments on Thursday that Obamacare is unconstitutional because it is a tax that originated in the Senate rather than the House and thus violates the Origination Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
The case, Sissel v. Health and Human Services, was argued before a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals with two jurists recently appointed by President Barack Obama and the other by President Bill Clinton.
Appearing before the panel, Timothy Sandefur, co-counsel for the Pacific Legal Foundation that launched Sissel, said the House bill that became the Affordable Care Act in the Senate in 2009 was "not a bill for raising revenue" and "did not raise taxes."
The Senate subsequently gutted the House measure to substitute completely new language that became Obamacare, he said.

Those brilliant, intellectual /s/ Progressive appointees will do a tap dance to top all tap dances.
2 Bamster appointed judges and one from the Sinkmeister. Ya, that panel will rule against The One. (End of sarcasm)
Since they are all liberal judges, I would expect them to dismiss the suit.
If it goes the wrong way, R senates can defund stuff.
So could D senates.
So could R senates fund stuff. So could D senates.
I see this looking good our way.
makes no difference how they rule, it’s going to SCOTUS regardless.
kagan ought to be forced to recuse hereself. if she had any morality she’d do it herself for the obvious conflict of interest.
If the US Constitution still operates, this should be a verdict directed from the bench without further ado as it is an incontroverible violation of legislative process. But we shall see ...

The Obamacare law is a “living document” much like the US Constitution, don’tcha know?
At least that’s how the libs treat it
On to the SCOTUS
Just takes time
“...The case... was argued before a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals with two jurists recently appointed by President Barack Obama and the other by President Bill Clinton.
The decision will reveal whether these judges are simply progressive activist agendanistas (which they almost certainly are and they are the reason for Harry Reid resorting to his “nuclear option” in getting them confirmed) or are honest judges who will uphold the Constitution (which would absolutely stun me) as they have sworn to do.
What I suspect will happen is that they will drag out “deliberations” and publishing of their decision AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. Following that decision will be delaying, as long as possible, an “en banc” hearing and decision.
