ObamaCare Not “Law of The Land” ONLY House Can Tax!

ObamaCare.Cartoon_acaonthefritzObamaCare was not written as a tax. Only the House of Representatives in Congress can write a law that creates revenue through a tax, per Article 1 Section 7, of the US Constitution. ObamaCare was presented as a penalty. Thereby rendering it null and void.

We here at PushBackNow.comUSDefenceLeague.com have been effusively attempting to educate the American populace of the factual truth regarding the legality and Constitutionality of: ObamaCare aka The Affordable Care Act. It is NOT in any way, shape or form the “Law of The Land!”

Why?

Because ONLY The US House of Congress can initiate a law, a tax law, a bill or a resolution that demands money from the American People. The bill or law cannot be re-written from a penalty to a tax, created after the fact in SCOTUS, in the midst of a Constitutional review in the highest court of the land:  The United States Supreme Court. As powerful of a court as they are, they cannot create, initiate, birth, write, draft, re-write, implement or mandate ANY laws, bills, taxes, resolutions or Constitutional Amendments period. They can ONLY review the Constitutionality of a case before them!

Again, ObamaCare was not written as a tax. Only the House of Representatives in Congress can write a law that creates revenue through a tax. ObamaCare was presented as a penalty, thereby rendering all Executive Branch, Legislative Branch and Judicial Branch offspring, clones, twins and any variations pertaining to ObamaCare aka ACA (Affordable Care Act) null and void. And Here’s proof… One last thing, after you read it, share it, teach it and preach it. This is Truth, and Truth always prevails.

Article 1. Section. 7.

All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States: If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

Every Order, Resolution, or Vote to which the Concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of Adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the Same shall take Effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the Rules and Limitations prescribed in the Case of a Bill.

This should be the end of the conversation, but alas the proponents of the anti-ethical and burdensome ObamaCare Socialist One Payer Anti-American dream repeat their false mantra that it is the “law of the land” so deal with it. It is not. You deal with that! Liberals and radical Democrats and, unfortunately even some RINOs, have similar dreams for illegals to be supported by the ‘one-percenters’ and middle-income Americans amidst this great Republic of The United States of America. The Affordable Care Act’s weight will be shouldered by the healthiest and hardest working and doled out indiscriminately. The method of administering ObamaCare via its ‘Marketplace’ is another discussion entirely. And the means, using the IRS The Internal Revenue Service to regulate after such partisan assaults would be laughable if it weren’t so dangerous! The facts are facts and ObamaCare/Affordable Care Act is a reprehensible illegal mandate pushed onto the American people via unauthorized, illegitimate and UN-Constitutional means. It is therefore NULL and VOID. Take that Mr. President, Democratic Congress, RINOs, et al, or, submit yourselves unto the legislative mulch you created and languish thusly by applying ObamaCare to yourselves at once! We The People will stand up against this, and every unlawful mandate and protect our Republic.  Now let’s hear from another Wide Awake Conservative voice. ~-PBN read more

IRS Exempts Terrorists Over Tea Party

Obama is Islamic. What Christian or Jew Would Go into A Catholic Church and Cover a Cross? ..None.  But Obama did do such a despicable thing because he is not a Christian. He is a devout Muslim and as such believes that all Christians/Catholics/Jews are "Infidels" = "Worse than an Unbeliever." According to the Koran with which he is so familiar unlike the Bible.

Obama is Islamic.

Our government was designed to be of  The People, by The People and for The People. But the Obama administration has made nothing but mortal  mistakes (intentional?) and a sickening mockery of Our Nation, Her Constitution and our Liberties. These impostors in congress and the White House have won favor with the sycophantic left wing media are using Islam and our own against us. This administration supports those who hate our people, loathe our liberty and are hell bent on destroying us physically and financially. -PBN read more

U.K. Downgraded, Stripped of AAA rating

Credit ratings agency Fitch on Friday announced its decision to revise the U.K.’s credit rating AA+, down from its previous AAA rating.

Here’s the full text of the agency’s announcement:

Fitch Ratings-London-19 April 2013: Fitch Ratings has downgraded the United Kingdom’s Long-term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDR) to ‘AA+’ from ‘AAA’. The Outlook is Stable. At the same time, the agency has affirmed the UK’s Short-term foreign currency rating at ‘F1+’ and the Country Ceiling at ‘AAA’.

The rating actions follow the conclusion of the review of the UK’s sovereign ratings initiated on 22 March and resolve the Rating Watch Negative. The previous Negative Outlook on the UK’s sovereign ratings had been in place since 14 March 2012.

KEY RATING DRIVERS
The downgrade of the UK’s sovereign ratings primarily reflects a weaker economic and fiscal outlook and hence the upward revision to Fitch’s medium-term projections for UK budget deficits and government debt. Despite the loss of its ‘AAA’ status, the UK’s extremely strong credit profile is reflected in its ‘AA+’ rating and the Stable Outlook.

- Fitch now forecasts that general government gross debt (GGGD) will peak at 101% of GDP in 2015-16 (equivalent to 86% of GDP for public sector net debt, PSND) and will only gradually decline from 2017-18. This compares with Fitch’s previous projection for GGGD peaking at 97% and declining from 2016-17 and the ‘AAA’ median of around 50%.

- Fitch previously commented that failure to stabilise debt below 100% of GDP and place it on a firm downward path towards 90% of GDP over the medium term would likely trigger a rating downgrade. Despite the UK’s strong fiscal financing flexibility underpinned by its own currency with reserve currency status and the long average maturity of public debt, the fiscal space to absorb further adverse economic and financial shocks is no longer consistent with a ‘AAA’ rating.

- Higher than previously projected budget deficits and debt primarily reflects the weak growth performance of the UK economy in recent years, partly due to headwinds of private and public sector deleveraging and the eurozone crisis. Fitch has revised down its forecast economic growth in 2013 and 2014 to 0.8% and 1.8%, respectively, from 1.5% and 2.0% at the time of the last review of the UK’s sovereign ratings in September 2012. The UK economy is not expected to reach its 2007 level of real GDP until 2014, underscoring the weakness of the economic recovery.

- Despite significant progress in reducing public sector net borrowing (PSNB from a peak of 11.2% of GDP (GBP159bn) in 2009-10, the budget deficit remains 7.4% of GDP (excluding the effect of the transfer of Royal Mail pensions) and is not expected to fall below 6% of GDP and GBP100bn until the end of the current parliament term. The slower pace of deficit reduction means that the next government will be required to implement substantial spending reductions (and/or tax increases) if public debt is to be stabilised and reduced over the medium term.

The Stable Outlook on the UK’s sovereign ratings reflects the following factors.

- Under Fitch’s baseline economic and fiscal scenario, which assumes a continued policy commitment to reducing the underlying budget deficit and medium-term annual growth potential of 2%-2.25%, government debt gradually falls as a share of national income in the latter half of the decade.

- The long average maturity of public debt (15 years) – the longest of any high-grade sovereign -exclusively denominated in local currency and low interest service burden implies a higher level of debt tolerance than many high-grade peers.

- The international reserve currency status of sterling and the ability and willingness of the Bank of England to intervene in the UK government debt market largely eliminates the risk of a self-fulfilling fiscal financing crisis.

- The gradual improvement in the UK banking sector’s capital and liquidity position has further reduced contingent liabilities arising from this sector.

The UK’s ‘AA+’ rating is underpinned by its high-income, diversified and flexible economy as well as a high degree of political and social stability. The monetary policy framework as well as sterling’s international reserve currency status afford the UK a high degree of financial and economic policy flexibility. Strong civil and policy institutions and a high degree of transparency enhance the predictability of the business and economic policy environment that compares favourably with peers in the ‘AA’ category.

Weak economic performance and growth prospects, relatively high levels of private and foreign as well as public debt, along with sizeable twin fiscal and current account deficits, are weaknesses relative to rating peers.

RATING SENSITIVITIES
The Stable Outlook indicates a less than 50% chance of a change in the UK sovereign ratings over the next two years.

The main factors that could lead to a negative rating action, individually or collectively, are:
- Failure to stabilise the government debt to GDP ratio over the medium term.
- Increased threat to macro-financial stability, for example arising from an intensification of the eurozone crisis or an erosion of confidence in the UK’s policy commitment to price stability.

The main factors that could lead to a positive rating action, individually or collectively, are:
- Stronger economic recovery and rebalancing of the UK economy than currently forecast.
- Government budget deficits and debt declining at a faster pace than currently projected so that GGGD is on a sustainable path towards 90% of GDP and below.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS
A key assumption underpinning Fitch’s medium-term fiscal projections reflected in the ‘AA+’ rating and Stable Outlook is that the growth potential of the UK economy is around 2%-2.25% pa. This assumption is based on the UK’s labour market and demographic outlook and expectation that labour productivity will revert to its long-run trend of around 2% pa. In the event that productivity and hence economic growth is permanently lower than its long-run historical average prior to the financial crisis, the fiscal outlook would be materially worse than currently assessed with adverse implications for the UK’s sovereign credit profile and ratings.

For the purposes of its economic and fiscal forecasts, Fitch assumes a current ‘output gap’ of 2.7% of potential GDP that gradually declines over the forecast horizon. However, there is considerable uncertainty over the extent and future evolution of productive spare capacity in the UK economy. According to Fitch’s simulations, in a ‘no output gap’ scenario GGGD would remain above 100% of GDP until 2018 in the absence of further structural deficit-reduction measures.

The strong institutional framework for control of public expenditure and effective tax administration alongside the broad-based political and public commitment to deficit reduction underpins Fitch’s assumption that fiscal consolidation will be sustained beyond the term of the current parliament through a combination of spending and tax measures. 3.5pp of the 6.9pp total reduction in expenditure as a percentage of GDP for the 2009-10 to-2017-18 period fall outside the term of the current parliament.

Fitch assumes that no contingent liabilities arising from the financial sector and other government interventions to ease constraints on the availability of bank credit to the private sector will have a material impact on the path of UK government debt over the projection horizon.

Fitch’s current global economic forecasts (published in the March 2013 edition of the Global Economic Outlook) are incorporated into its near-term economic forecast for the UK including the assumption that severe tail-risks to the global economy, including a break-up of the eurozone, do not materialise and oil prices remain broadly at current levels.

Fitch will publish early next week an update of its medium-term economic and fiscal projections for the UK that will supplant those published by Fitch in September 2012 (‘UK Public Finances Update’, 28 September 2012).

The ratings of related entities and transactions will be reviewed in light of today’s sovereign rating action and any changes announced shortly.

Dirty Liar Harry Reid Lies About $2.6 trillion cuts in ‘This Week’ interview [VIDEO]

http://campaigntrailreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/dirty.jpgSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) answers a reporters questions after the Democrat’s weekly policy luncheon, at the US Capitol, January 29, 2013, in Washington, DC. The leaders discussed pending immigration reform, bipartisan issues and the recent Supreme Court ruling on President Obama’s recess appointments. UPI/Mike Theiler
Even the liberal leaning FactCheck.org called out Senator Harry Reid for being doubly wrong in his claim that Congress has already cut $2.6 trillion from projected future deficits by reducing non-defense programs alone.

The site explained that not only did the legislation he referred to applied to both security and non-security spending, but that a considerable part of the deficit reduction came from tax increases and not spending cuts.

The worst part? The senator made the same erroneous statement twice. Reid made the affirmations on ABC’s “This Week” on Feb. 3rd, were he also added that further deficit reduction should include more tax increases and cuts in military spending.

“The American people need to understand that it’s not as if we’ve done nothing for the debt. $2.6 trillion, $2.6 trillion already we’ve made in cuts. And all those cuts have come from non-defense programs. We need to keep our eye on the prize and continue doing something about spending, but I think that what we need to do is do some of the things that Mitt Romney talked about. He said there’s some low-hanging fruit; there are a lot of tax loopholes that should be closed. I agree with him. We haven’t done that.,” he said.

Later on, after host George Stephanopoulos probed the Senator on the issue, he repeated his claim saying,

“I repeat: $2.6 trillion already, all coming from non-defense. If we’re going to have a sequester, defense is going to have to do their share”

According to FactCheck.org Reid inflated the $2.6 trillion figure for the show. The senator referred to the same figure as being $100 billion less, three days before on the Senate Floor.

“We have already made nearly $2.5 trillion in historic, bipartisan deficit reduction,” he said on the floor Jan. 31.

Supporter of Keynesian economics believes it is the government’s job to smooth out the bumps in business cycles. Intervention would come in the form of government spending and tax breaks in order to stimulate the economy, and government spending cuts and tax hikes in good times, in order to curb inflation.

Bad Fiscal Cliff Bill: Payroll Tax Increase Hits Nearly Every Wage Earner

http://www.socialsecurityinsider.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/istock_000006459776xsmall.jpgThis may be a brief rally for the markets, but a long term problem for our freedom and financial future. The GOP failed us. Moderates and RINOs must be tossed out. No quarter given, no conversation, no compromises. The USA is NOT Europe and we will not let our elected official act like Europeans. We will take our country back, we will stand for and with our Constitution. 

WASHINGTON- While the tax package that Congress passed New Year’s Day will protect 99 percent of Americans from an income tax increase, most of them will still end up paying more federal taxes in 2013.

That’s because the legislation did nothing to prevent a temporary reduction in the Social Security payroll tax from expiring. In 2012, that 2-percentage-point cut in the payroll tax was worth about $1,000 to a worker making $50,000 a year. read more

Adoption Credit Expires While Hollywood Hypocrites Keeps Tax Breaks

Most Americans will see their taxes go up

to help pay for Social Security this year, but some industries got big breaks in the fiscal cliff deal passed by the House Tuesday night.

The ABC News blog “The Note” reports the provisions are just extended from past years, but in light of America’s skyrocketing debt the breaks are raising concerns.

Among the controversial breaks is the Hollywood industry, which is being giving $430 million to make productions inside the United States.

‘Tea party’ group fights for Islamic causes

Far from being the lock-step GOP ground troop some in the media have suggested it is, the tea-party movement includes people of many different ideologies … but this element is most unusual.

WND has discovered a Muslim activist organization that claims to be working from within the tea party to counter the movement’s “Islamophobia.”

The group Muslims4Liberty, however, also decries American “greatness,” accuses the U.S. of “war crimes,” espouses seemingly anti-Israel ideology and slams the “evangelical and conservative Jewish bloc” of the Republican party. read more

AUTO BAILOUT BOMBSHELL: Fiat Says Chrysler, Jeep Production May Move to Italy

Coming hot on the heels of speculation that some Jeep production may be moved to China comes a bombshell from a Bloomberg report. Fiat is now considering moving Chrysler and Jeep production to Italy.

According to the piece, “To counter the severe slump in European sales, (Fiat CEO Sergio) Marchionne is considering building Chrysler models in Italy, including Jeeps, for export to North America. The Italian government is evaluating tax rebates on export goods to help Fiat. Marchionne may announce details of his plan as soon as Oct. 30, the people said.”

So, let’s be real clear here, we are talking about vehicles that will be built in Italy and exported to America. The evidence is clear that Fiat is looking at ways to move production of vehicles from the US to elsewhere, whether it be China or Italy, costing American jobs. This is becoming indisputable, despite outcries from certain parties to the contrary.

Mitt Romney has rightfully criticized the Obama Administration for handing over Chrysler to the Italians and now leaving the fate of American workers in the hands of Fiat management. Fiat is not a healthy company and the auto industry is in as great a risk as ever. The insistence that all is well by those with political motivations does not mask the danger. More jobs are at risk of being lost and more taxpayer money may be lost as well.
