The White House declined on Thursday to rule out that President Barack Obama might sign future legislation, such as an immigration reform measure, that has not been put to a recorded yea-or-nay vote in both houses of Congress.
CNSNews.com asked White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs about the possibility of the president doing so because of a prospective lawsuit that Landmark Legal Foundation President Mark Levin has prepared to file against the president if he signs a health care bill that has not been passed by a direct recorded yea-or-nay vote in the House of Representatives. The prospective lawsuit argues that the plain language of Article 1, Section 7 of the Constitution requires that both houses of Congress hold recorded yea-or-nay votes on a bill before it can be presented to the president for his signature and before it can become law.
I stated earlier that when this (health care) bill passes the House, the president will be happy to sign it, Gibbs told CNSNews.com.
He twice declined to say, however, whether President Obama would rule out signing additional pieces of legislation that did not pass both chambers of Congress with a yea-or-nay vote....

What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
The first time you break the Constitution is always the toughest.
They are going to simply disregard the rules from now until November 2, 2010.
And there's no guarentee of elections, or of honoring them.
I told you several weeks ago. Obama is like a serial killer. After the first kill and you don’t get caught, it gets easier and easier.
I just wonder why he didn’t throw his whole communist agenda into the Deathcare bill.
You are correct.
We have just turned the corner into dictatorship.
I predict that just before the elections this November “something” will happen that Islamobama will use to suspend all elections. In fact, I’d bet on it. And that’s why these congress criters are voting “yes”. They’re not worried.
I GUESS THE DEMS REALLY DID GET RID OF THE CONSTITUTION....PING!!!!!
See post 25. It’s coming soon!
Maybe we all need to sign up for the government teat. How many lips can it handle.
Prayers for our troops who are dieing for this country’s freedom while watching it be destroyed from within. I weep for them. May the Lord hold them in his arms and comfort them in this time of shame that our nation’s politicians have done to us.
I’m afraid you are correct and that saddens me to say so. So far in our nation it’s just been a matter of how high are taxes or various international diplomacy issues. At this point we are involved in a communist coup and no one seems to care.
As I saw the politicians edge closer and closer to underlying, and now blatantly ignoring, the constitution the reply that makes me want to rip someones head off was, “That can never happen here.”
Well, that just did happen here, and it will happen on a level that far too many people will still not see, realize or care about on Sunday.
Are there enough patriots left that are willing to do what will soon be necessary to save this country?
I knew it would happen the night Obama won. His entire life is one of twisted hate, and communist indoctrination. Right about now, I would like to go outside, find 2 Obama voters, and punch them in the teeth!
himself caesar and signs a law that enables him to be president for life.
Then the patriots will just have to “determine” that length of term or maybe better put, the shortness of term.
All in all, when this is all said and done and its revealed he was not legally prez and that the dems pulled unconstitutional acts, everything will be null and void and the dems will be running, hiding and screaming like girls as they go up on the lamp posts.
One can only imagine what our Forefathers would have done to this traitorous bastard.
Batten down the hatches - our side WILL fight back - and then comes Martial Law...count on it.
We are in the fight of our lives - but fight we must or we and our children and our grandchildren will live under tyranny...and it won't be the Socialism the demonRats think - it will be under Muslim rule that obyummer is setting up.
Read the histories of past civilizations - IT CAN HAPPEN and it IS happening, right here and right now.
Gird your loins and prepare to fight/
Good point. I think Jefferson would wonder what happened to the American thirst for Freedom.
Are you forgetting that they are there to REPRESENT us?
WE call for the uprising and tell THEM to help or get out of the way.
